November 2013 Debut of the Month.
A fast, easy read with alternative endings as a group of friends are celebrating going to university when a car crashes through the restaurant window killing …? Well, that’s the point. Who died and who did not? The scene is set for two alternative futures where a mugging explains one hospitalization and severe headaches another. But what actually happened and to whom, keeps you turning these pages eager for a twist. The writing is addictive, the plot enticing, the descriptions flow and the love affair is good to follow but for me the time travel element could have been explored better. Read it for a good, light romance, a chic lit tale, just don’t think about the how or why too much!
What would you do if life gave you a second chance? The night of the accident changed everything...Now, five years on, Rachel's life is crumbling. She lives alone in a tiny flat, working in a dead-end job, desperate with guilt over her best friend's death. She would give anything to turn back the clock. But life doesn't work like that...Does it? The night of the accident was a lucky escape...Now, five years on, Rachel's life is perfect. She has a wonderful fiance, loving family and friends around her, and the career she always wanted. But why can't Rachel shake the memory of a very different life? Gripping, romantic and heartbreaking, Fractured is a magical love story that asks: can two different stories lead to the same happy ending?

Please tell us a little bit about what inspired Our Song …The first germ of an idea came as quite a disquieting thought. I was thinking randomly about how many women (...More About Dani Atkins
