Reviews: Time of My Life


“Scotch's novel is a clever, entertaining look at the compromises women make
— and the dangers of getting what you asked for.”

Scotch is a fluent, spirited writer, and character she has created is easy to understand, a woman trying to figure out who she is and what she wants to do with her life. The Boston Globe

"A moving, hilarious tale...and Scotch carries it off with witty, breeze aplomb. Just about the perfect late-summer fare." - The Dallas Morning News

After this hilarious read, you may just return to your own crazy-busy
routine a little happier.

A must-read. A fantastic, often funny novel. Hallmark Magazine


Scotch’s second book shows a writer coming into her own, a storyteller who doesn’t take the easy way out, and a woman with a fine understanding of human nature. Booklist


An engaging, fast-moving, high-concept drama. Scotch keeps one dexterous step ahead of page-flipping readers eager to guess the outcome. Publishers Weekly


If you've ever wanted your own do-over, this read will keep you guessing
'til the end.
Library Journal


Time of My Life is a fabulous, madcap read, but don't be fooled: Allison Winn Scotch's narrator is wrestling with some tough issues: how do I find my place in the world? Can I become a wife and mother without losing myself? Would I have been happier if I had chosen another path? Scotch's book is hilarious and true. I loved it. – Amanda Eyre Ward, author of Sleep Toward Heaven, How To Be Lost and Forgive Me


I loved this book! Time of My Life is funny and delightful and honest in the way only the best novels can be. Scotch's protagonist, Jillian Westfield, asks the highly-relatable question: “Did I pick the wrong life?” And, as she finds her answer, she also finds her best self. I could not put down this novel, reading it all in one delicious sitting. I envy the reader picking up this book for the first time. – Laura Dave, bestselling author of London is the Best City in America and The Divorce Party


Time of My Life is for anyone who has asked the question “what if?, which is to say that this book is for everyone. This story of one woman's big regrets and choices will keep you reading all night, and guessing till the very end. An honest and engaging tale about how hindsight may not be twenty-twenty, and how our decisions are rarely black and white. I loved it. – Julie Buxbaum, author of The Opposite of Love
