A deadly accident can take a life in more than one way.
Four years ago, Carlene Adams made a deadly mistake. A tragic accident derailed the future she'd hoped for, taking the life of the man she'd planned to spend forever with.
As a self-imposed penance for her solitary sin, Carlene has given up on every dream she ever had. She has committed to spend every remaining moment trying to make up for that one instance when everything changed.
Then she gets a second chance.
When Carlene meets Nick Johnson, the single kiss they share awakens the desires she shoved aside for so long. Suddenly she wants more than what she believe she deserves. Will she ever see him again?
A thing of fate.
Leaving the life she built on regret, Carlene waits for fate to intervene. But just as she begins to believe in a fresh start, she's forced to realize a horrible truth—one with the power to send her second chance crashing before it even takes off.
Nick isn't who she thought he was. She isn't the girl he believed her to be, either. Their lives were intertwined even before they met, and if Carlene tells him the truth, she’ll risk tearing them apart—for good.
Novella’s are one of my favorite type of books to read. They’re short, sweet and leaves you wanting more. If the wanting more element doesn’t lead you to the sequel, I would be very unhappy but I’m glad Entangled Moments has a sequel and maybe a third short one in the works after the sequel? Perhaps.
Carlene’s life is in the dumps and she’s afraid to jump start her life. But when push comes to shove, she manages to put herself out there again and even got herself a job and a good start to a new life.
Reading through the book, the author lays a thin sheer curtain to mask why Charlene’s life is where it is in the beginning of the book. All we know is that there was a very very bad accident that Charlene blames herself for. And we are left to assume what really happened. Did she kill someone? Did someone threaten her life? so on and so forth.
This sense of mystery and the touch of romance in the novella keeps you reading. And when the author ended the book with this HUGE cliffhanger I wanted to scream! I loved this first installment in the Moments of Time Novellas from Dori Lavelle. I can’t wait to read more from her.
