Meant to Be Mine by Hannah Orenstein

From the author of Playing with Matches, a sweeping love story in the vein of Rebecca Serle and Chloe Benjamin about a woman who knows the date she’ll meet her true love—only he isn’t quite as perfect as she always imagined.

What if you knew exactly when you’d meet the love of your life? Edie Meyer knows. When her Grandma Gloria was a young woman, she had a vision of the exact day she would meet her soul mate—and then Grandpa Ray showed up.

Since then, Gloria has accurately predicted the day every single member of the family has met their match. Edie’s day arrives on June 24, 2022, when she’s twenty-nine years old. She has been waiting for it half her life. That morning, she boards an airplane to her twin sister’s surprise engagement, and when a handsome musician sits beside her, she knows it’s meant to be.

But fate comes with more complications than Edie expected and she can’t fight the nagging suspicion that her perfect guy doesn’t have perfect timing. After a tragedy and a shocking revelation rock Edie’s carefully constructed world, she’s forced to consider whether love chooses us, as simple as destiny, or if we choose it ourselves.

Imagine being able to know the date that you will meet the love of your life, your soulmate, the one you are destined to spend the rest of your life with. But what happens if you meet someone on that date and it isn’t insta love, love at first sight or you’re just not feeling the vibes. Let me introduce you to Edie because this is her story.

Meant to be Mine was a quick read with a unique premise and a main character determined to follow the predictions of Grandma Gloria, she’s been right every time in the past so this should be the case also. This had more of a Womens Fiction feel verse a Rom/Com. Relationships played centre, whether between grandmother/granddaughter, or twin sisters. Edie's journey was a little slow at times and not as witty as I anticipated. 

There was a nice ending, though I would have enjoyed spending more time during the last 1/4 of the story.

Meant to be Mine released in the 7th of June and available for purchase now. My thanks to Atria Books for an advanced copy in the exchange for a honest review
