Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday. Needless to say, Nobel was taken aback by the way in which he would be remembered after his death. This foundation annually bestows international awards in recognition of cultural and scientific advances. Today, Nobel is not remembered as the merchant of death. Having read his obituary while he was still alive gave him the opportunity to change his legacy.
Although it sounds a bit macabre, writing your own obituary—or asking a friend or a family member to do it for you—can be an excellent wake-up call that can help you make important changes in your life. It can give you a second chance at life. It stars Kelsey Grammer as Seattle radio psychiatrist Dr.
Frasier Crane. One day, Frasier hurts his nose in a minor car accident and goes to the hospital to get it looked at. This man suddenly dies of a heart attack in the hospital, and the evening news reports that Frasier Crane had died. The next day, Frasier has an experience very similar to the one that Alfred Nobel went through: the newspaper mistakenly published his obituary.
This makes Frasier reflect on his life and everything that he has yet to achieve. After that exchange, Frasier goes home and, as a self-actualizing exercise, he writes his obituary as he would like it to appear years later, at the time of his actual death. In addition, he included in his aspire-to-obituary that he had started a blog to teach children about psychiatry, that he had traveled to South America, that he had taken up rafting, and that he spoke Russian.

Do the following: write an obituary as a true account of your life to date. As an alternative, if you want to be more objective, you can ask a friend or family member who knows you well to do it for you. That have all the opportunities to become strong but don't. This book was about a weak woman who was too stupid to be given a second chance. Feb 16, Courtney Hagel-Swinson rated it really liked it.
I really enjoyed this book but it was definitely not a romance.
It seemed like more of a mystery or thriller to me. That being said, I was hooked from the very first chapter and the author did a really good job of keeping my attention throughout the whole book. Elaina and her unborn child die a horrible death but she is sent back two years in time for a second chance and the opportunity to uncover a government conspiracy.
You can't help but feel sorry for Elaina throughout the whole story. Just I really enjoyed this book but it was definitely not a romance. Just when it seems like things may start to go right for her, Sonia is always one step ahead of her. You automically hate Sonia for what she does to Elaina in the first chapter and that hatred exponentially grows throughout the story.
I was disappointed that Sonia didn't get more than she deserved at the end. Her co-conspirator and Elaina's husband, Mendes, is brought to justice at the end but I thought Sonia was more deserving of that type of punishment. As I previously mentioned, this wasn't a romance.

I wish there had been more romance between Elaina and Evan besides fleeting glances. Elaina does eventually get her happily ever after but the build up to it fell flat. However, I still really enjoyed the book but just be warned that there isn't really any romance. There is also one short scene of marital rape.

A different perspective on time travel and historical fiction, but it really worked. Lady Elaina is a strong female character in this book.
This book does fall under the romance category but the romance of the story line is very small so be warned. This book is full of failed plots, revenge, suspense. Definitely, a good read for when the book list is low. This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. I started reading this 2 years ago, and about half way i stopped reading.
I couldn't remember why i had stopped reading it, but i picked it up again 3 days ago, and finished it. And while reading, i remembered why i had stopped reading it in the first place.

The main protagonist comes across as really annoying. She 's selfish, whiney and wants to cry almost every single page. On the other hand, i did like the general story. Aug 17, Min rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

Some tropes stay the same e. Oct 15, Yafania T. What would you do if you had no one to trust and were surrounded by enemies? That is Elaina Sertan's problem. Well that, and the small fact that she's come back from the dead and time traveled. Elaina is a incredible narrator who brings you straight into the story.

What a poorly written book.
Repetitive throughout and very poorly plotted.
