Dubray Books review:
Georgie has a landline telephone in her childhood bedroom that allows her to speak to her husband, Neal. Only, the Neal who answers the call is a great deal younger than his present self, at the age when he and Georgie first started to date. With their marriage currently in a state of limbo, Georgie sees an opportunity to guide the Neal from her past in a different direction; surely, this will save them both from years of unnecessary heartache and a potential divorce? But what of their children: might they cease to exist? And surely their years together count for something given how they were once so much in love? Landline creates a light-hearted yet captivating Sliding Doors situation that makes you wonder just what you would do. It certainly made me stop and reflect on my own life choices.

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it's been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and he still loves her - but that almost seems besides the point now. Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells him 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 - he is always a little upset with her - but she doesn't expect to 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
