Welcome to Literary Marie's Precision Reviews! Thanks for visiting today's virtual tour stop for Kelly Simmons' new novel, One More Day (available February 2, 2016). I am very much excited to read, review and participate in this book tour for an author I've been a literary fan of as well as her tweets about seasons rules. So pull up a comfy chair, grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the content below.
"Novels illuminate the inner life. It's a way to understand adults since we have so few clues as to why they behave the idiotic way they do." ~ 71%
In the few seconds it took to grab a quarter for the parking meter, Ben was kidnapped from his carseat. Of course his mother, Carrie, blames herself. Then after Ben had been missing for almost 15 months, he mysteriously reappeared as if a day hadn't passed without him. This is what Carrie had been hoping for all along: just one more day with her baby boy. Well be careful what you wish for.
Ben returned for just 24 hours before disappearing again, this time from his crib. Is Carrie imagining things? Is the telling the whole truth? Suddenly police, friends and even her husband start questioning whether Carrie is guilty, crazy or both.
One More Day is available now. Women's fiction bookhearts, you should read this one. I flipped the pages trying to figure out what the heck was happening. Even when I finished, I wasn't completely sure I saw where the author was going with the unique plot. One More Day was easy to get into but confusing to get out. I would rate it a solid 4 hearts if I was more sure of the conclusion...hmmm.
