That One Moment, is a contemporary, romantic suspense with a plot that kept my interest!
I’m not generally a fan of romance, but Patty Wiseman has created a believable character in Ricki Sheridan. She is a Game Warden with a tough persona, strong sense of duty, and an independent spirit. But Ricki has a weakness. Her caring heart led her into a relationship with a man that betrayed her trusting nature.
Needing to clear her head and heal, Ricki flees to a mountain lodge where she joins a group hike. She’s not mentally or emotionally prepared to accept Kory Littleton or that unexpected moment. When her past follows her, everyone’s life is in danger. Ricki knows she must put her past in order before her heart can move forward.
Patty Wiseman does a good job keeping the story and characters’ emotions flowing into a memorable story that would make a good movie.
Intriguing and Inspirational
In this Historical fiction novel, two strong-willed women form a strong friendship in high school. Their lives twist and turn in different directions for several years, then their bond is tested by an unexpected event.
The point of view switches between Blanche and Miriam in separate chapters, making their stories easy to follow. Ingram’s tight writing style makes for a fast paced, enjoyable read. One slightly explicit sex scene and one suggestive, but neither were overdone.
In a friendship forged in high school days, solemn athletic Miriam Meyer and flamboyant actress Blanche LaRue seem as different as apples and kumquats.
After winning an Olympic Gold Medal while still a teenager, a plane crash forces Miriam to give up her dream of a repeat performance. She marries and settles for small-town life as the wife of her banker husband, Brad Hammond.
Blanche disposes of anything that will come in the way of achieving her goal, even husband and child. Her career carries her into the European war scene. An enamored Count Romano Vicente comes to rescue her.
Although continents sometimes separate the friends, their strong bond of friendship remains.
