How many lifetimes would you travel to find a love that lasts for ever?
When single career girl Jo-Jo steps onto a zebra crossing and gets hit by a car, she awakes to find herself in 1963. The fashion, the music, her job, even her romantic life: everything is different. And then it happens three more times, and Jo-Jo finds herself living a completely new life in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. The only people she can rely on are Harry and Ellie, two companions from 2013, and George, the owner of a second-hand record store.
If she's ever to return from her travels, Jo-Jo must work out why she's jumping through time like this. And if she does make it back, will her old life ever be the same again?
Step back in time with this fabulously fun and feed-good comedy of time travel and romance, from the author of From Notting Hill with Love . . . Actually
McNamara (From Notting Hill with Love... Actually) opens this saccharine time travel yarn with a minor collision between pedestrian Jo-Jo McKenzie and a white sports car in London. The overachieving accountant is knocked out, and she wakes up in the same spot 50 years earlier. It's November 1963 and Jo-Jo is thrust into the height of British Beatlemania, red pencil skirt and all. But no sooner does she solve some workplace problems with her 21st-century business savvy then there's another speeding sports car encounter in the same intersection and Jo-Jo awakens in 1977, decked in perfect period garb. The decade-hopping continues with appropriate wardrobe changes and brief encounters with best friend Ellie and love interest Harry. A record shop owner acts as Jo-Jo's spiritual travel guru, but even his wisdom can't save this messy and derivative self-discovery treacle.
