Product Details


“If you want to finish your year, or kick off 2023, with a New Year’s themed read, then This Time Next Year is perfect!” —HerCampus

“[A] second-chance romance that makes you feel unabashedly hopeful.” –Refinery29

“[A] cute contemporary romantic comedy…The characters in this page-turning novel are richly drawn and transform substantially, especially Minnie, and all suggest that maybe happy ever after is up to us.”NPR Books

“If you make time for just one holiday read this year, make it Sophie Cousens’s This Time Next Year.”PopSugar

“With its distinctive British charm and New Year’s Eve midnight magic, this swoony debut holiday love story is about two people whose paths have crossed numerous times.”Parade

“[A] touching debut…Flashbacks to New Year’s past and subplots…add depth, while hilarious secondary characters inject levity in just the right places…Cousens’s debut is ripe with both emotional vulnerability and zaniness.”Publishers Weekly

“A brilliantly written story about love, redemption, friendship, and self-empowerment… This book is an absolute delight… [and] a feel-good tale to cozy up with.”San Francisco Book Review

This Time Next Year is a clever, offbeat romantic comedy…Cousens’s colorful, quirky cast becomes embroiled in big, memorable scenes…Rom-com readers will revel in Cousens’s wry, lively story, which probes themes of self-discovery, acceptance and forgiveness, and the abiding nature of friendship.”Shelf Awareness

“A funny, pull-at-your-heartstrings read, this is the perfect companion for curling up with hot chocolate and a blanket. Unashamedly romantic and packed full of holiday sparkle, it’s a hug in book form.”—Josie Silver, author of One Day in December

“Sparkling and uplifting.”—Mhairi McFarlane, author of If I Never Met You
“Heart-warming and unashamedly romantic.”—Ruth Jones, author of Us Three

“Swooningly romantic…I didn’t want to put it down'”—Kirsty Greenwood, author of He Will Be Mine

“A beautiful debut full of heart, soul and serendipity with characters you can’t help but fall in love with.”—Alex Brown, author of A Postcard from Italy

This Time Next Year will make you laugh, cry and keep reading long into the night – it’s the escapist read everyone needs right now.”—Holly Martin, author of Autumn Skies Over Ruby Falls
