This is my first book by KARMA BROWN and it definitely will not be my last.
IN THIS MOMENT by KARMA BROWN is a cautionary tale that explores one woman’s overwhelming guilt, grief, love, balancing responsibilities and the consequences of split-second decisions that can ultimately affect you and your family.
Special mention to The Cookbook Club that was included in this storyline as I am a cookbook collector and really love the idea of a club that gets together and prepares meals from a unique and different cookbook each time they get together. I would love to be in a club like that!
KARMA BROWN delivers a well-written, original, and believable story here that had me wondering and pondering what I would have done if I was put in the same situation as our main character, Meg Pepper. Although, normally I am a person that really thinks of all the consequences that might happen from a certain decision or situation that I have made or come across. I have also been known to make split-second decisions that weren’t the best choices and have regretted them and wished that I would have thought it through better. Nothing as profound or tragic as Meg’s though. But, I think that is what made this story so enjoyable for me as it was so realistic and had me sympathizing and caring about the outcome of the decisions Meg made and the quilt she is harboring from those decisions. My stomach was in knots a few times while I was reading this story.
IN THIS MOMENT is a powerful, steady-paced, and an emotional read with a realistic and hopeful ending. Would recommend!!
