"Hannah Martin's life isn't shaping up into much of anything. Since graduating college eight years ago, she has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs. At the age of twenty-nine, she is starting to see crow's feet, and yet, she still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. On the heels of leaving yet another city, Hannah moves back to her hometown of Los Angeles to regroup. She takes up residence in her best friend Gabby's guest room. Along with Gabby and Gabby's husband Mark, the three of them go out to a bar where they meet up with some of Hannah and Gabby's old friends, including Hannah's high school boyfriend, Ethan. Shortly after midnight, Gabby asks Hannah if she's ready to go. But then Ethan offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitates. What happens if she leaves with Gabby? What happens if she leaves with Ethan? MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE is told in two concurrent storylines following the consequences of each choice. Hannah's two parallel universes develop into radically different stories with large-scale consequences not just for Hannah, but for all of the people in her life. As Hannah's stories run their course, they raise questions about fate and true love. Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps, most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate? Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she believes she's found him"--

Does Fate Exist?

“We make choices, big and small, every day of our lives, and those choices have consequences. Fate or not, our lives are still the results of our choices”. Can one small choice really change the course of your life? In her latest novel, Taylor Jackson Reid explores the questions of fate, choices, and how they influence finding “the one”. Hannah Martin is going aimlessly through life, moving from place to place on a whim and can’t quite get her life together. She decides to return home to Los Angeles after an affair with a married man ends badly. On her first night home, while out with friends, she makes one choice that creates two vastly different lives and stories. Should she stay at the bar and rekindle a romance with an old high school boyfriend or should she leave with her best friend? In alternating chapters, Sliding Doors style, Hannah’s life takes two vastly different directions.

The book itself is not about regret but focuses on the idea that life is what you make of it. It begs the question is there such a thing as fate? Does life end up the way it is supposed to be or are the series of choices you make have a greater influence? Fast-paced and at times humorous, you’ll want to rush to through it to see how the two stories end.
