Did I enjoy this book?
 I really did enjoy this read! I didn’t want to put it down. I read In This Moment every free chance I had.

This is the first book by Karma Brown that I have read, and I can’t wait to read more. In fact, I have an earlier release (The Choices We Make) sitting on my shelf, waiting for me.

In This Moment takes you on an emotional ride and reminds us that one decision can impact so many. You can’t help but feel for Meg, Audrey, Ryan, Andrew, Jack, Sam, Emma, Alysse . . . everyone. There were moments I didn’t like some characters, but I could sympathize with them. There were times I just wanted to cry for the characters. It isn’t a happy, feel good story, but it is a page turner.


Would I recommend it? Yes, I would recommend it. This would be a great book club selection.



About the book – from Goodreads: 
Bestselling author Karma Brown is back with a morally infused and emotionally riveting exploration of one woman’s guilt over an unexpected—yet avoidable—tragedy.

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.

After school pickup 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 unravelling 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?


Happy 2
