Expiration Dates

We’ve all read that one book from an author and fell in love with it that you had to read the rest of their work. Have you ever read the synopsis of a book and know you’re going to immediately fall in love with it? Luckily for you both apply to me. Coming out on March 5th of 2024 is Rebecca Serle’s new novel Expiration Dates. The synopsis below has me already falling in love with the story and characters and I haven’t even read it yet.

 Daphne Belle believes the universe has a plan for her. Every time she meets a new man, she receives a slip of paper with his name and a number on it—the exact amount of time they will be together. The papers told her she’d spend three days with Martin in Paris; five weeks with Noah in San Francisco; and three months with Hugo, her ex-boyfriend turned best friend. Daphne has been receiving numbered papers for over twenty years always wondering when there might be one without an expiration. Finally the night of a blind date at her favorite Los Angeles restaurant, there’s only a name: Jake.

 But as Jake and Daphne’s story unfolds Daphne’s story unfolds, Daphne finds herself doubting the paper’s prediction, and wrestling with what it means to be both committed and truthful. Because Daphne knows things Jake doesn’t, information that—if he finds out—would break his heart.

 My heart keeps swooning for this story each time I read the synopsis. For all of us single women or men we want to know when we will meet the one and if it will last. If this concept of an expiration date were real it would be a blessing and a curse. We would know who not to waste our time with, but we would also have our hearts broken early on knowing if it wouldn’t work out, and our hearts would fly if we know it will work out. I think the lesson of this book will be about taking a chance for the right one while also being patient for what we deserve. I’m really excited and I can’t wait to read Daphne and Jake’s story. I know if I don’t get an early copy I will definitely preorder this book.
