waking amySummary:

Amy Whitfield is blindsided when she comes home and finds a note on the fridge from her husband, Wesley, stating that after four years of marriage, he’s leaving her. Amy was in the midst of trying to spice things up, to bring life back to their boring marriage. It seems now that she was too late.
As Amy sits with her head between her knees, trying to figure out what to do next, a call comes from Mercer General Hospital. The ER nurse is telling Amy’s answering machine that Wesley has been in a car accident.
When Amy arrives at the hospital, she finds her husband in a coma. The doctors say there is no sign of brain damage, and Wesley will eventually wake up. Relieved, Amy sees this as her second chance: the chance to get it right this time. To channel the girl Wesley won’t leave when he regains consciousness… She just needs some help to pull it off. After all, she was voted girl most likely to die a virgin in high school.
Amy would never figure on getting that help from Mark Reilly…Wesley’s doctor! He’s a non-committer, too-cute-for-his-own-good bachelor, and completely the guy Amy begins falling for. It’s a race against time to see who wakes up first—Amy or her husband.


Ooh, this book was such a treat! At the beginning it was nearly breathtaking to read about Amy finding the note then her getting the phone call about the accident. So intense! Then watching Amy go through her transition of being so in her shell to finally realizing who she was inside was so enjoyable to read. When reading I try to just be in the story, be in the moment, and not let anything else get to me, but a few things tripped me up here, even though I was happily reading away. There were a few logistical items that stuck out to me that didn’t quite add up or maybe make the most sense, but if I forgot about those and just focused on the story line, I was quite happy with this novel. And I was really pulled in by the cover! A nice women’s fiction read for your list!
