    Where will any of us be in five years?

    Part fantasy, part romance, "In Five Years" asks readers to imagine their futures. Mergers and acquisitions lawyer Dannie has been asked the question "Where do you see yourself in five years?" in job interviews, but the question has a different meaning when one thinks of it personally. Living with her boyfriend David, she accepts his marriage proposal and their life goes on. One day she finds herself (Was it a dream?) five years forward with a different man, Aaron Gregory. Then her life returns to reality. She and David stay engaged but don't marry, citing too many work issues, and then Dannie's best friend Bella appears with a new boyfriend - Aaron Gregory - causing Dannie to begin to question her life. "In Five Years" is an engaging and enjoyable read.

    An Emotional Roller coaster, surprise ending.

    This fast paced novel was an emotional roller coaster. I was sad to see the story end, but hopeful for Dannie's future. Dannie & David are compatible. So compatible they have finally gotten engaged after 2 1/2 years together, but not in a rush to get married since they are still on their career fast-tracks. Dannie gets a glimpse of her future, 5 years to the day of her engagement to David, and it's not David she's with. She can't bring herself to even tell her BFF Bella about it. Four and a half years later, she and David are still together, not planning the wedding, when Dannie meets the man from her dream. A book I will long remember. I volunteered to read an ARC from Atria Books (Random House) through Net Galley.

    A Poignant Celebration of Friendship & Sisterhood

    3.5 stars When I read the synopsis of In Five Years, I was immediately intrigued and couldn't wait to read it. I was expecting an epic love story, and I did get one, just not the one that I thought I would. I do not consider In Five Years a romance and would categorize it more as women's fiction. Readers should not expect a light and fluffy love story. There are romantic elements, but to me it was more a poignant celebration of friendship and sisterhood. I really enjoyed Rebecca Serle's writing overall, but I did feel that the pacing of the book was a little slow at times and overly detailed in certain areas. It made the book feel too long, and took away some of the emotional impact. The flash forward scene was done extremely well though and I loved how everything came together in the end. I'm still not really sure how to feel about the pseudo-love triangle that developed and how it concluded, but I can understand how grief and emotion could contribute to that outcome. Dannie, Bella, David, and Aaron were all likeable characters, but I didn't truly connect with or love any of them. I was invested enough in the story though to read this book in one sitting. I appreciated the message/theme that we cannot control life no matter how much we may want to and that there's a peace in letting go. Overall, an enjoyable read, but not quite what I was expecting. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

    Twist, friendships and love

    In Five Years started, for me, as a romance book. Two people in 2020 are living together, in love, getting engaged but then there was a twist. Dannie has a dream that she is in 2025 and that her life is different from what she is living now. It was a dream, right? It couldn’t have really happened, could it? I love how her life in 2020 continues, she gets her dream job, she is with a wonderful man but is she really happy? I had many thoughts while enjoying this book. I wondered how many people settle in life, how many people wish their life could change and would they be happier if it changed? While Dannie doesn’t really want a different life, is she settling with her life? The story of Dannie and her best friend broke my heart. I had tears rolling down my face as their story was told. Their friendships were so true. They fought, they loved, and they protected each other. Even while not getting along they did things for each other, just because they knew the other would appreciate or need it. This is my first book by Rebecca Serle and I look forward to reading more. The twists, the friendships, the love, and the story are all amazing and I recommend picking up your own copy.

    An impactful look at love, loyalty and loss

    An impactful look at love, loyalty and loss. Dannie provides a glimpse into the struggles of life. She is a planner; everything has a schedule and purpose. At her dream job interview, she knows exactly where she will be in 5 years which leads to her engagement to her long-time boyfriend, David. What she doesn’t expect is to wake up in a different bedroom in 2025 with a different man next to her. This dream shakes Dannie’s foundation more than she will admit as she works to bury what she experienced. The one constant during Dannie’s life is her best friend, Bella. They met when they were 7 and just clicked. Bella is the free-spirit in Dannie’s structured world. Dannie is a complex woman, she is driven to achieve her goals but deep down, there is pain that has never healed from the loss of her brother at a young age. Through this journey, she has to face that grief as live throws new challenges her way that test her plans. Yes, I was in tears as this story unfolded. This is beautifully told in a way that allowed me to be Dannie and experience all the highs and lows with her.
