In A Second by J. E. Spina

In A Second by J E Spina.

Athena feels as if she is going out of her mind. She can’t function after losing her fiancé, Justin, in a car accident, or did she? She keeps having dreams or rather nightmares of being trapped in a car with Justin’s lifeless body. But when she wakes up in the hospital no one will tell her what happened to Justin.

She begins to think that he is a figment of her imagination until she calls his number and he answers. They make a date but then, he doesn’t show up. There are many secrets that Athena’s parents are keeping from her. Can she deal with all the secrets that threaten her whole being? Her only salvation is her Gramma Grace who knows the truth and has the power of clairvoyance to help her.

Athena finally meets someone who could possibly give her a chance at love again but can Lucas give her what she needs or is he asking too much of her? When her psychiatrist, Dr. Nick Jasper, shows an interest in her too she feels overwhelmed and confused. Will Athena be able to choose between Dr. Jasper and Lucas? Will she ever forget Justin?

Review by Michele Rolfe: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Is Athena Going Crazy? When Athena wakes up in the hospital & asks about her boyfriend Justin, no one will tell her anything. She keeps having dreams or maybe visions of her being in a car accident with Justin’s body next to her. She finally gets a call from Justin & they make a date, but he doesn’t show up. What happened to him? There are more than a few secrets her parents & grandmother are keeping from her, too. Will these secrets destroy her or clear things up for her? J.E. Spina has another mystery hit on her hands! I got this book for my honest review.
