31 Aug One Moment by Becky Hunter
A gorgeous story of love and loss, told from beyond the grave …
Congratulations to Becky Hunter on paperback publication of her debut novel One Moment.
I read this book back in March, when it came out in hardback, and it has left a strong impression on me, thanks to the deep emotions, empathetic characters and the slight quirkiness of the narrative being related by a departed spirit.
This gorgeous story from Becky works on every level. A really well-written romance, where you’re rooting for the heroine to find true love, happiness and peace from the very first page, it tugs at the heart-strings even more with its extra dimension of strong female friendship from beyond the grave.
When Scarlett dies in a tragic accident, her spirit lingers, looking out for her best friend Evie, whose recent MS diagnosis has made her shrink from the world.
Because of the accident, Evie meets Nate, but can she ever forgive him for the death of her beloved friend? Or forgive Scarlett, for appearing to move on without her? And does he even want a committed relationship?
As for Scarlett, will she every be able to finally rest in peace? Only if she can put things right for Evie, whom she never meant to betray.
Told from Evie and Scarlett”s point of view, this is an engrossing and heartbreaking story with strong, empathetic characters. Each has his or her strengths and flaws – they’re genuine people. caught in a challenging situation, all trying to do their best for themselves, and for each other.
The story explores friendship, love, loyalty and family ties. The varying threads come together seamlessly as the narrative flows its way towards the story’s resolution – which holds surprises right up to the end.
It made me cry – and I loved it!
