One Moment In Time by Shari Low

Carpe Diem

One Moment In Time by Shari Low is a most delightful contemporary novel which I loved.

The tale is about love and family. We see characters who love their families so much that they always put them first. They practice sacrificial love.

Lives have been squashed for far too long as smiles were plastered on faces. Somewhere down the years, characters lost sight of themselves. It is never too late to have a fresh start.

Big hearted daughters plan something special for their parents thirtieth wedding anniversary. Little do they realise that the dominoes are about to fall.

The reader is treated to the sights and sounds of Las Vagas. Shari Low provides full descriptions painting the urban landscape for us as we imagine ourselves there.

All the characters are well drawn, realistic and easy to empathise with. Our emotional responses to the characters were expertly guided by Shari Low. There were moments when we commiserated with the characters, applauded their responses and laughed out loud!

One Moment In Time was a fun read but it had its serious moments too. We all need to seize the day as we practice carpe diem. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

I received a free copy via Rachel’s Random Resources. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.


One Moment in Time

Sometimes the best surprises reveal the most shocking secrets.

After three decades of marriage, Brenda Jones has decided to leave her husband, just as soon as they both return from a mystery trip with their daughter Zara. But she has no idea that Zara is flying them to Las Vegas to renew their vows.

Zara Jones has recreated almost every detail of her parent’s original wedding – now her only challenge is tracking down the two friends who were pictured with her mum and dad back in 1993.

Aiden Gregg is dealing with his own relationship woes when he receives an unexpected message from a complete stranger. WIth the help of Facebook, Zara has tracked him down and is asking if his parents are the other couple in the old photo? And if so, could he bring them to Vegas for a surprise reunion?

What Zara and Aiden don’t know is that thirty years ago, One Moment In Time changed everything.

Will rewinding the clock right the wrongs of the past?

Or are they all counting down to a rendezvous with disaster?
