Book Tour for “What If?”

I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the book tour for “What If?”

This is the book that started it all! A classic retro romcom from #1 bestselling author Shari Low.


Carly Cooper is 30, single, and after coming close to saying ‘I Do’ to six different men, she’s wondering if she accidentally said ‘goodbye’ to Mr. Right.

But there’s a problem.

Her ex-boyfriends are scattered all over the world and Carly lives in 1999; an era before Facebook, Google, smartphones, 4G and Broadband, when it was impossible to track people down with a few clicks of a mouse. 

On a mission to discover if she walked away from her ‘happy ever after’, Carly quits her job, her flat, her whole life and sets off on a quest to track down all the men she has ever loved. 

Her Mr. Right is out there, but can she find him?

And what if he’s moved on from the ex-girlfriend who said goodbye? A wonderful classic 20th-anniversary re-release. 

My review: 

What is better than seeing one of your favorite books being re-released, or even better would be to fall in love with this book for the first time during its re-release. 

It was definitely different to see her trying to reconnect with her ex-boyfriend and going through all the hassle to find him. As someone that grew up mostly in the era of having Google’s help it was such a fun twist for me to see the lengths she would go to just to get some answers about her ex-boyfriend. 

This book was so completely witty and I found myself truly laughing with some of the characters. I am someone that normally tends to lean towards multiple POV books, but this book was perfect for the singular point of view. I think it really gave Carly more depth and left the reading really guessing what the outcome was going to be. I really enjoyed the point of view of this book and found it so interesting.

I liked that this book made references to popular culture throughout the book. As someone born just a little before this book came out I caught onto most of the references and thought it made the book super fun. I think that definitely added to the witty, and retro feeling of this book and added a lot of depth, and felt like she was letting the reader into sort of an inside joke. 

This is a book that the reader will be able to get completely lost in and just find themselves finishing it in one go. It has withstood the passing of time, and this re-release proves it. 

I recommend this book for anyone that wants to read romcom, wants a light-hearted read, or even just wants to reminisce on what it was like before smartphones and Google ran everything.
