Mia Graydon's life looks picket-fence perfect; she has the house, the husband, and dreams of starting a family. Their relocation to small-town Pennsylvania comes with the usual challenges--finding a new job, new friends, new furniture--but the move is nothing the couple can't handle. That is, until Mia finally meets the stranger she has been dreaming about for a decade. And here's the catch: He's been dreaming of her, too. Now Mia must navigate the tangled web that fate has spun her and, with the help of the man of her dreams, go in search of answers. When diving into both of their pasts begins to unravel life in the present, Mia emerges with a single question: What if?-- Publisher's description.

I enjoyed this novel. The shared dreams were a vehicle for raising the philosophical/scientific question of what is reality, what is subconscious longin,g and what is prescient knowledge. The Mia character was confused and sad, but (in my opinion) not portrayed as someone pathetic. I am glad the author focused on what was going on in the mind of Mia and not try to delve into the mind set of husband Harrison or enigma Oliver.

Romantic, with a touch of supernatural wonder (dreams, co-incidence), miscarriage sorrow, strong woman friends. Bit of tear-jerker at the end.

I can see this being turned into a movie. As good as any Nicholas Sparks story.

Was not riveting, but finished it because I wanted to see how it ended. Am not recommending it just because there are so many other choices out there

This book was just "OK". I got tired of hearing about dreams. That was "overdone". Also, it didn't end right.

Brilliantly written, but really weird. Disturbing even. Did not bring me to a happy place.

This story wasn't anything that I thought it would be based on the blurb, but not in a bad way. In fact, it went in a direction I was mostly happy about and the overall writing was really clean and strong. While the story was immensely heartbreaking at times, it was also hopeful with an open-ended conclusion. I'm okay with those and I actually thought it was lovely, if not a little bittersweet. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy women's fiction without the predetermined happily ever after.

What if had reoccurring dreams about a man you never met and then met him? When Mia and her surgeon husband move to a small town from Philadelphia, she hopes to have a baby and work on her art career. But she keeps miscarrying and her husband finally admits he’s not sure he wants a baby—and BAM in walks the man of her dreams. Turns out he has dreams of Mia as well. Well developed characters show the emotions all three are going through and the unexpected ending is much more satisfying that I had expected.

This book kept me on my toes.

Harrison? Oliver? Harrison? Oliver? I liked how I constantly was going back and forth on that.

The ending seemed both to happen too quickly and to be a bit of a copout. But something about Mia endeared herself to me. I'm not usually fans of novels where the female MC is "I want a baby! I want a baby!"
all the time, but Mia's story was a little different. She was funny and silly and passionate. I LOVED the tattoo story!

If you want a romance that will keep you second-guessing, this book will definitely fill the bill. You'll hold onto Mia and her love for quite some time.

4+ "I bet you can't read this book without needing tissues" stars for this poignant and drama-filled book. I had my hand over my mouth with tears running down my face at one point and I don't want to spoil it for anyone else. When you read the plot synopsis, you may have an idea of what will happen. I suspect you will be wrong. The way this book deals with issues like fertility and infidelity turned me into a fan by the end. Great choice for book groups, too!
