She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.Maybe that was always besides the point.Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles.

If she’s ruined everything.That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .Is that what she’s supposed to do?Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

4.0 Landline - Rainbow Rowell
There can't be all that many novels about women TV writers trying to move up to their own show and being a show-runner, so it's odd that I read two so close to each other.

When I read the first summary for the book (which I can't find atm), it made it sound like their marriage was on the rocks and the temporary split would involve Georgie speaking to Neal's past self and rediscovering wh...
