Praise For Time of My Life…
Named a Top 10 Must-Read for the Season by The Today Show
"Scotch's novel is a clever, entertaining look at the compromises women make - and the dangers of getting what you asked for."
“After this hilarious read, you may just return to your crazy-busy routine a little happier.”
“Perfect to read with friends. A book we love....The kind of unputdownable book you'll really hope gets made into a movie."
"[Jillian] is easy to understand, a woman trying to figure out who she is and what she wants to do with her life. Scotch is a fluent, spirited writer."
“Book pick of the month. Insightful and honest, Winn Scotch keeps it light but delves in the dark doubts of the road not taken.”
“A must-read. A fantastic, often funny novel.”
“An engaging, fast-moving, high-concept drama. Scotch keeps one dexterous step ahead of page-flipping readers eager to guess the outcome.“
“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.”
“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 Forgive Me

—Laura Dave, author of London Is the Best City in America and The Divorce Party
“Time of My Life 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
