BookSparks’ Summer Reading Challenge continues with Karma Brown’s, freshly published, IN THIS MOMENT (ParkRowBooks/HarperCollins/Harlequin). Once again, it’s time to get out your Kleenex and don’t expect to leave your chair or couch once you start reading. It’d suggest making up a nice little table with drinks, perhaps some cheese and crackers, treats and you’ll be ready to settle in.
Meg Pepper has a busy career, married to radiologist, Ryan, 15 year-old daughter, Audrey, she’s stressed, but keeping it together. Then one day, everything changes. All is takes is one unexpected moment and your world turns. Tragedy Leading to guilt and grief.
Meg sees Audrey’s best friend rundown after she calls him over, triggering a memory from her own past. She proceeds to help the boy’s family at the expense of her own and what readers watch is the unraveling of two families.
IN THIS MOMENT is based on one of those horrible “what ifs” that anyone of us could find ourselves facing. Her characters are complex and struggle to do what is right, but what is right? Morality at times, can be up for debate. One’s value’s are certainly their own, subject to discussion. Life can seem so black and white, but we live in a world of grey.
Karma has always loved the written word. As a kid she could usually be found with her face buried in a book, or writing stories about ice-skating elephants. Now that she’s (mostly) grown up, she’s a bestselling author whose debut novel, Come Away with Me, was a Globe & Mail Best 100 Books of 2015. Karma’s sophomore novel, The Choices We Make, also earned her a spot on the Globe & Mail and Toronto Star bestseller lists.
A National Magazine Award winning journalist, Karma has been published in a variety of publications, including SELF, Redbook, Today’s Parent, Best Health, Canadian Living and Chatelaine.
Karma lives just outside Toronto, Canada with her husband, daughter, and a labradoodle named Fred. When not crafting copy or mulling plot lines, she is typically running or working on her downward dog, hanging out with her family, making a mess in the kitchen and checking items off her bucket list. Karma is represented by Carolyn Forde at Westwood Creative Artists, and is currently wearing down her laptop’s keyboard writing her next novel.
