Description


Sometimes dreams come true. Other times, the best outcome begins with an epic fail.

Career-driven McKenna Keaton has devoted her life to attaining the senior partnership at her law firm. So asking a man on a date should be nothing. But the past four days have been the worst of her life and have called everything she thought she knew about herself into question. Besides, she can't remember her last real date--one that didn't involve using a blind date as an opportunity to get a stranger's perspective on effective cross-examination techniques. (It's like sharing fondue with a jury )

But a real date? And with shy, nerdy Henry Blumenthal--McKenna's high school rival for valedictorian who once took three hours to beat her at chess? Scratch that. He's Hank Blume now, the famed documentarian, Durham's darling son, who has attained all his dreams and more. He also happens to look like he stepped out of an Eddie Bauer catalog.

Whereas McKenna is a disgraced workaholic from New York on unpaid leave, accused of a white-collar crime she would never commit, succumbing to panic attacks, watching her dreams unravel. At age thirty-eight--and destined by the family curse to die before she turns forty, it appears--it's absolutely the wrong time to have a major crush on a man. Especially one who treasures his memories of McKenna as the girl Most Likely to Succeed.

"Pitch-perfect comedic timing, a relatable heroine, and a refreshing sweetness elevate this novel above the sea of modern rom-coms. The rare author who can make me laugh-out-loud, The Do-Over is Bethany Turner at her best." --Lauren Layne, New York Times bestselling author

"Bethany Turner has crafted a delightful, witty story with zippy dialogue, warmly relatable characters, and hilariously apt pop culture references. I found myself sneaking off to read just one more chapter. I'm still smiling thinking about this book. Reading it felt like eating a big bowl of Lucky Charms mixed with Fruity Pebbles. A colorful explosion of happy." --Rachel Linden, bestselling author of The Enlightenment of Bees
