Happy Thursday book geeks. I hope you’re all well and have had a good week so far. Don’t worry we’re nearly at the weekend 🙏🏻🍷
Anyway, today I am honoured to be finishing what can only be described as a beautiful tour for the fabulous author, Susan Lewis and her newest release, One Minute Later.
Before we start though let me tell you something. This is the worst review I have ever written! I feel ashamed for myself, but you know sometimes when you just go – ahh eff it? Yeah well that.
Happy days as they say 🤦🏻♀️
💙Blurb: With a high-flying job, a beautiful apartment and friends whose lives are as happy as her own, Vivienne Shager is living the dream. Then, on the afternoon of Vivi’s twenty-seventh birthday, one catastrophic minute changes everything.
Forced to move back to the small seaside town where she grew up, Vivi remembers the reasons she left. The secrets, lies and questions that now must be answered before it’s too late. But the answers lie in thirty years in the past…
Shelley Raynor’s family home, Deerwood Farm, has always been a special place until darkness strikes at its heart. When Vivi’s and Shelley’s worlds begin to entwine, it only takes a moment for the truth to unravel all of their lives.
💙My Thoughts: Ok, this is hard. I’m sitting here and have been trying to write this review for so long and you know what? I just can’t. Every time I go to say something I end up giving something away. I hate spoilers so much. You know what though I’ll try my best to give you something 🙈
Ok, so you know those books that sort of just grip you by the throat and leave you a bit breathless because of how real and raw it is?
Those books that stay with you and have you thinking? The real life books? The thought provoking ones? The powerful ones…
Well, this is one of those books. In fact, it could be a runner for too spot for these books. No word of a lie.
One Minute Later is a beautifully written tale of love, tragedy, family, love, secrets, self-worth and how we see and live life. It shows us that no matter what life can be seriously hard. To me though the most important part was the HUGE importance of organ donation it gives you. Like it or not it’s there and it’s serious food for thought. It’s an amazing thing to bring more awareness too.
Oh my god this is so shit isn’t it? 🤦🏻♀️😂
Do you know what? Just read it please. I promise you won’t be disappointed. You may struggle slightly at first with the connection between Vivi and Shelley like I did. You may not. However, if you do, let it go and carry on because it will all come together for you. And honestly when it does it will hurt your heart in both happiness and sadness. It blows you away it really does.
It’s a stunning read.
