In This Moment is Consuming and Compelling

In This Moment tops my list of' "Most Anticipated Reads of 2023." After loving When the Day Comes, I had exceptionally high expectations for this book and author Gabrielle Meyer doesn't disappoint. In fact, she manages to make In This Moment even more riveting with heroine Maggie as a time crosser with three time periods. 1861, 1941, and 2001.

Ms. Meyer ingeniously balances all three eras giving Maggie three distinct roles and families. In 1861, she's Margaret Wakefield, a Senator's daughter with the country on the verge of Civil War. In 1941 finds her working as nurse, Maggie Hollingsworth and in 2001 she's Meg Clarke a young prodigy medical student. 

Like her mother, Libby she must choose which time to permanently live in on her 21st birthday. Making it ever more challenging she has one man in each period she's beginning to develop feelings for. Which man will ultimately capture her heart? Will it be Gray, Seth or Zechariah? Who will she choose? I was definitely leaning towards one hero over the others, but I'm not going to tell you which one.  You'll have to read In This Moment to find out. Neither Maggie nor the reader knows which time she should choose. It takes great skill as a writer to do this well. That's the genius of this story. The author keeps you turning pages and guessing. 

The theme of In This Moment of how God plans and orchestrates our lives really resonated with me and I felt was such a timely and comforting message for today.

As with When the Day Comes, In This Moment will draw you in  and I guarantee you'll be replaying scenes in your head and this story will stay with you long after you've closed the book. 

Author Gabrielle Meyer keeps you on your toes with a few plot twists I wasn't expecting. She has set the bar sky-high and exceeded all my expectations.  I confess when I read the ending I was jumping up and down in my living room screaming with excitement over the way she sets it up for book #3! I can hardly wait! If you love books that combine history and romance coupled with the unique time-crossing element you need to add this book to your TBR pile.
