What the hell was this? I stared at the numbers, numb with horror. The box was a bomb. And it was going to go off in two minutes.


Charlie's life is torn apart by a terrorist bomb in a London market. Months later she meets Nat, whose family has been left devastated by the same explosion. But as Charlie gets closer to Nat she starts to wonder if he knows more about the attack than he is letting on...

Life can change in the blink of an eye - whether you're ready or not. 

The new bestseller from the award-winning Sophie McKenzie.

Do I Recommend this book? No

Notes and Opinions: I tried so hard to love this book.  This one really reminded me of a book called BlackOut by Robinson Wells but where that one had some yummy plot twists and well a paranormal aspect.  In a Split Second was bogged down by a lot of gilt and well just ended up being boring. The characters didn't work for me and well I would have loved to learn more about the world they lived in.  There was no mystery in the book as you know who the bad guy is. So this one just didn't work for me.
