Review | Twice in a Lifetime

amazon Goodreads
​Clara Sinclair has known trial and misery, but knowing it doesn’t make it easy to accept. It’s been seven years since she lost her husband in the war and now, in addition to a wayward teen and a declining mother she’s being blackmailed by her disgusting employer.

Clara just can’t see any way out of this mess.

Drake McCoy is still tearing up the track at forty-two. With his mechanic by his side and money stashed away, it seems he can’t lose. What he doesn’t know is his mechanic is on the run from a past he can’t escape and Drake might just get caught in the crossfire. Because to these people guilt by association is fully acceptable.

Hott Review of Twice in a Lifetime:

What I liked: ​I enjoyed Clara and Drake. Their personalities and relationship are very relatable. Clara’s life and problems are so real and so devastating I couldn’t help but to be emotionally involved in her life, her setbacks, and her opportunities.
What I didn’t like: ​I had trouble remembering Twice in a Lifetime was a story set in the 50s instead is today.
