Publisher's Summary

Groundhog Day meets One Day in December in this funny and romantic novel about a couple who call off their wedding after a disastrous rehearsal dinner - only to wake up the next morning stuck in a time loop.

Two people. One wedding. No end in sight.

Megan Givens and Tom Prescott are heading into what is supposed to be their magical wedding weekend on beautiful San Juan Island. But with two difficult families, ten years of history, and all too many secrets, things quickly go wrong. After a disastrous rehearsal dinner they vow to call the whole thing off - only to wake up the next morning stuck together in a time loop. Are they really destined to relive the worst day of their lives, over and over? And what happens if their wedding day does arrive?

A funny, romantic, and big-hearted debut novel, The Rehearsals imagines what we might do if given a second chance at life and at love - and what it means to finally get it right.

Critic Reviews

“A funny, clever, enchanting story about finding our way back to ourselves and to those we truly love. It had me spellbound from the first page.... The Rehearsals is refreshingly honest about the ups and downs of long-term relationships, whether romantic or family, handling its themes with wit and zest. Terrific fun from beginning to end!” (Sarah Haywood, author of the New York Times best seller and Reese Witherspoon X Hello Sunshine Book Club pick The Cactus)

"A truly absorbing read, told with wit and heart, and impossible to put down. Annette Christie is a master of creating characters that feel like friends, where you hate to turn that last page and say goodbye." (Jen DeLuca, author of Well Met)

"Christie's sparkling and witty debut explores the tangled web of the night before a wedding. Through Tom and Megan, we discover the importance of second or more chances, and how learning to listen (to others and yourself) is the key to love and happiness." (Roselle Lim, author of Natalie Tan's Book of Luck and Fortune and Vanessa Yu's Magical Paris Tea Shop)

Wish I could return

The story was decent despite the swear words, but once they dropped the f word I was done. I've searched multiple times but can't find where to get my money back. I assume it's because I bought the book on sale. Only made it to chapter 7... oh well
