More Summer Reading for 18+ – In a Second!

Another enjoyable book for summer reading for 18+ is my mystery/suspense/clairvoyant story – In a Second! This story came to me in more than a second! I couldn’t resist saying that! Sorry!

I kept having this dream about a woman in a car – a red sports car. I imagined all kinds of things happening in this story in my dream each night. It drove me crazy! I had to write it down and let the characters take over the story. They flew with it! Especially one particular character who I love and so do my readers – Gramma Grace.

She became an important part of the story and keeps urging me to give her a story of her own. I have been so busy with three other WIPs that I can’t listen to her right now. If I ignore her enough, maybe she will go away for awhile. Fingers crossed! I can’t take on another project at the moment.

Check out this book today to see what I mean about Gramma Grace! I think you will love her too! I hope you enjoy this book and any of the other books available by clicking on covers to the right of this post or by going to the links below at Amazon and BN.


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?
