Fantastic! In This Moment by Karma Brown

by Susan Roberts

I loved Karma Brown's first two books and was excited to find her new book was as fantastic as the first two. Karma's books show how one event can take even the best life off track and create a ripple effect that resonates through the family.

ebook, audio, print (304 pages); women's fiction
The characters in this novel - especially Meg - are so well written that many of us can identify with them. Meg works as a full-time realtor while trying to be the perfect wife and mother. She is stressed and takes care of everyone but herself. When an accident happens at her daughter's school, she is consumed with guilt even though the accident wasn't technically her fault. The accident brings back the unresolved guilt from an accident that happened when she was 16 that she had never forgiven herself for. As her guilt begins to alienate her from her husband and daughter, she sees her family life slipping away.

This is a wonderful novel by a fantastic author who is able to create characters that the reader identifies with and cares about. Be sure you clear your calendar before you start In This Moment because you won't want to put it down until the last page.

About the book

Meg Pepper has a fulfilling career and a happy family. Most days she's able to keep it all together and glide through life. But then, in one unalterable moment, everything changes.

At after school pick up one day, she stops her car to wave a teenage boy across the street…just as another car comes hurtling down the road and slams into him.

Meg can't help but blame herself for her role in this horrific disaster. Full of remorse, she throws herself into helping the boy's family as he rehabs from his injuries. But the more Meg tries to absolve herself, the more she alienates her own family—and the more she finds herself being drawn to the boy's father, Andrew.

Soon Meg's picture-perfect life is unraveling before her eyes. As the painful secrets she's been burying bubble dangerously close to the surface, she will have to decide: Can she forgive herself, or will she risk losing everything she holds dear to her heart?
