One Minute Later

Susan Lewis

You think your life is perfect. You think your secrets are safe. You think it'll always be this way. But your life can change in a heartbeat. With a high-flying job, a beautiful apartment and friends whose lives are as happy as her own, Vivienne Shager is living the dream. Then, on the afternoon of Vivi's twenty-seventh birthday, one catastrophic minute changes everything. Forced to move back to the small seaside town where she grew up, Vivi remembers the reasons she left. The secrets, lies and questions that now must be answered before it's too late. But the answers lie in thirty years in the past... Shelley Raynor's family home, Deerwood Farm, has always been a special place until darkness strikes at its heart. When Vivi's and Shelley's worlds begin to entwine, it only takes a moment for the truth to unravel all of their lives.


Vivi Shager has it all – a thriving legal career, swanky London apartment, glittering social diary. She also has an undiagnosed heart condition and on her 27th birthday it nearly kills her. Vivi swiftly comes to understand that without a heart transplant, she will die. It’s a crisis that will send her on a journey into a past full of dark secrets, and a future of bright, romantic hopes. A complete page-turner.
