Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside 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. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. 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?

“Nobody’s lives just fit together. Fitting together is something you work at. It’s something you make happen – because you love each other.”
Despite the semi-mixed reviews of Landline that made me semi-nervous to read it, I actually really enjoyed it! It’s not my favorite Rainbow Rowell book, but I still flew through it and had a lot of fun.
It’s different from her usual books, more darker I think, but even so it still has it’s cute, adorable, and hilarious moments (it wouldn’t be a Rainbow Rowell book if it didn’t) that left me grinning.
Overall, really nice, quick read! Rainbow Rowell can do you no wrong if you’re looking for a good contemporary!
On a side note not sure if this is a spoiler but… AHHHHH, CATH AND LEVI ❤
