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?
Shari Low is definitely one of my go to authors! You know when you pick one of her books up that you are going to be treated to an emotional, yet heart-warming and amusing story full of love and life! The book begins in Vegas 30 years previously when Brenda and C0lin are getting married in a Las Vegas chapel! Fast forward 30 years, and the same couple are heading towards their wedding anniversary. However, whilst they’ve had a good married life, they are not as happy as they should be in their relationship now. Their grown up daughters, Zara and Millie, don’t know any of this, and when they find a photo of their parents with two of their friends in Las Vegas 30 years ago, they secretly track them down, arrange a surprise reunion and wedding vows renewal in Vegas itself!
This was a wonderful read. The author has very cleverly added humour and fun into an emotional storyline that will bring tears to your eyes on one page and leave you laughing out loud on another. I loved Zara and Millie’s characters and Millie was a welcome humorous distraction in some of the more tense parts of the storyline! It was obvious from the beginning that things were not as they seem and something was going to go wrong as the story moved on. I loved following the journeys of the different characters though, and whilst some were more likeable than others, they all were a perfect addition to the book,
Told from the perspectives of the different characters, this book tugged on the heartstrings more and more as I read! I loved the arrival in Vegas, and waiting with bated breath for the inevitable fallout! This was very cleverly written with warmth and emotion, and is the perfect piece of escapism! Loved the ending which wrapped up all the characters storylines and was genuinely sad when it ended! Would definitely recommend!
