Description

“A powerful and evocative story about the life-altering consequences of a single decision… Riveting.” —Emily Giffin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lies that Bind and Something Borrowed

“Karma Brown's work is as smart as it is effortless to read.” —Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Reese's Book Club Pick Daisy Jones & The Six

From the #1 internationally bestselling author of Recipe for a Perfect Wife comes an emotional tale of the aftermath of one woman’s earthshattering mistake

Meg Pepper has a fulfilling career and a happy family. But her life shatters in an instant when a chance encounter results in a terrible accident that leaves a teenage boy in critical condition. Full of remorse, Meg throws herself into helping the teenager’s family as he rehabs from his injuries. But the more Meg tries to absolve herself, the more she alienates her own family—and the more she finds herself being drawn to the boy's father.

Soon Meg's picture-perfect life is unravelling before her eyes. As the painful secrets she's been burying bubble dangerously close to the surface, she will have to decide: Can she forgive herself, or will she risk losing everything she holds dear to her heart?

"IN THIS MOMENT is a powerful and evocative story about the life-altering consequences of a single decision. Karma Brown delivers a riveting tale, infused with emotion and morality, that will leave readers asking, 'What would I have done?'" --Emily Giffin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of FIRST COMES LOVE

"When an accident's ripple effects threaten to tear apart Meg Pepper's life, she must decide what--and who--matters most. Exploring the influence and consequence of guilt, love and responsibility, Karma Brown's latest, IN THIS MOMENT, is an emotionally riveting read." - Amy Hatvany, author of It Happens All the Time and Somewhere Out There

"IN THIS MOMENT is a gripping examination of how one seemingly innocuous split-second decision can change your entire life. In her latest, Karma Brown proves once again that she is a masterful observer of the emotional nuance of relationships- both familial and romantic. A must-read." - Colleen Oakley, author of CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH and BEFORE I GO

"Karma Brown has a knack for zeroing in on a heart-stopping flash when lives can change forever, and then for deftly examining the fissures in a family that can materialize out of the aftermath. After reading In This Moment, I'll never casually wave anyone across a street again, but I will await Karma Brown's next book with admiration and anticipation. - Meg Mitchell Moore, author of The Captain's Daughter and The Admissions

"A warmly compelling love story [and] deeply moving debut." -Booklist

"Brown delivers an emotional punch in The Choices We Make. This is a good, old-fashioned tear-jerker of a book." -The Toronto Star
