Looking for a Mystery/suspense/clairvoyant Novel? In a Second is the one to check out!

We all need to find something different to read. When I wrote this book, In a Second, I wanted to create something outside what I had already written. This character came to me after seeing the name online, Athena. Once I had a title and a name for the main protagonist I flew with the story.

As in all my stories the characters take over. Athena was nearly overshadowed by her Gramma Grace who is a strong woman with formidable powers of clairvoyance and then-some. Grace always has the answers to every problem and controls more than she admits. I think she is trying to tell me that she wants her own story. I don’t know about that but you never know. She could come to me in a dream and push me to write a story for her.

What are you reading now? Are you tired of the same type of stories? Well, then it is time to tune into one of Jemsbooks mysteries like In a Second. You won’t be disappointed! You will be hooked from the first page. Happy Reading!

I like to begin my books with a bang and go out that way too and add a few twists and turns and you’ve got a gripping read. Grab your copy today! Beautiful cover by John Spina!


Athena feels as if she is going out of her mind. She can’t function after losing her fiancé, Justin, in a car accident, or did she? She keeps having dreams or rather nightmares of being trapped in a car with Justin’s lifeless body. But when she wakes up in the hospital no one will tell her what happened to Justin. She begins to think that he is a figment of her imagination until she calls his number and he answers. They make a date but then, he doesn’t show up.

There are many secrets that Athena’s parents are keeping from her. Can she deal with all the secrets that threaten her whole being? Her only salvation is her Gramma Grace who knows the truth and has the power of clairvoyance to help her.

Athena finally meets someone who could possibly give her a chance at love again but can Lucas give her what she needs or is he asking too much of her? When her psychiatrist, Dr. Nick Jasper, shows an interest in her too she feels overwhelmed and confused.

Will Athena be able to choose between Dr. Jasper and Lucas? Will she ever forget Justin?
