In Seconds

All Laurel Hodges wants is peace. Yet gang members won’t let her get peace, but instead they want her afraid. Living in fear is not what she dreamed of her life being like. For four years she has been hiding always looking behind her back. She knows coming to Montana was a huge mistake but her kids deserves somewhat of a childhood place. She has tried to fight this by herself but Sheriff Myles King just won’t leave her alone. Laurel knows the more people she involves in her life means one day less for them. Can she outrun “The Crew” and stay alive for her kids?

One word for this suspense by Brenda Novak is wow. I loved that the suspense never stopped until the end. It made me turn the pages to find out what was next. The Crew is definitely not stopping until Laurel is dead and the Sheriff being on her side is not stopping them. Though four years have happened Laurel is constantly in fear and just being with Myles gives her a little peace. This is definitely a book by Brenda Novak that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved it.
