"The sirens electrify the gunman. His free hand goes to his head, clutching a handful of hair. He spins in a complete circle before rushing to the front windows where he pulls down all the blinds."
What happens when you lose everything? When you have nothing left to live for?
At the start of this story we follow the stories of three very different people, all going about their lives. Soon, they all end up at the same place, at the same time, becoming a part of each others stories. When a gunman holds them hostage in their local cafe, they fear the worst. But things don't always work out the way you think they will.
Hooo boy. This one made me ugly cry. Not entirely sure if it's the pregnancy hormones or the book itself, so if you've read this please let me know if it made you cry too
I was gripped from the first page and I honestly couldn't stop reading. From start to finish, this was a well written, well paced read. I've not read anything from this author before but I will definitely be looking for more from her.
