Neverending Beginnings- Mary Chris Escobar



Mary Chris Escobar’s comparison of her romantic comedy Neverending Beginnings to the movies Groundhog Day and My Best Friend’s Wedding is spot on. Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies of all time so I was excited to read this novel and it did not disappoint.

Imagine your best friend announces she’s getting married after only dating her boyfriend for six months. Now imagine he’s your ex-boyfriend.  At the wedding, Kate has a few drinks too many at the bar before her bridesmaid speech. To make matters worse, she left her notes at the bar. Kate starts off by mentioning that Jack is her ex-boyfriend. She says a few other inappropriate things before she blacks out. When she wakes the next morning, she obviously regrets her actions. However, she soon realizes that the wedding isn’t for another week…at least to everyone but her. She has the opportunity to makes things right but first she has to relive the week before the wedding again, and again, and again…

“In a few days would I wake up hung-over from week one? Or did I drink so much that I died? Was this the afterlife? Was it hell? Like, literally, my own personal eternity of punishment?” (Kate, 53).

Kate’s character is extremely relateable and she’s someone that I think most people will root for. Jack’s best man, Ben is as confused by the quickie wedding as Kate is, and they bond over that, among other things.

“The thing is part of me thinks this is all really fast and crazy but then there’s this whole other side. Like when they started dating he was more excited than I think I have ever seen him,” (Ben, 66).

“Really, isn’t everything more exciting in the beginning?” (Kate, 66)

If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, and if like me, you over-analyze situations and think “what if this had happened differently?” you’ll love Neverending Beginnings. 

To read an excerpt:

The following two tabs change content below.


  1. The title just boggles me.

    Sometimes I kind of wish I still over analyzed situations and loved rom-coms, but something broke me for them, and I don’t know what it is. At least, I don’t like the rom-com movies. Maybe I’d like the books.

    Methinks I’ll have to check this out.
