Synopsis (from Goodreads):
"I hate you. I hate you with all of Sylvia's heart."

Helen has waited for months for the heart that will save her life. After reaching out to the grieving mother of her donor heart, Helen realises that a second chance comes at a price. The price, she soon realises, is much steeper than she'd ever have chosen to pay.

There's more than one way to break a heart. There's more than one way to destroy a life...

My Review:
This novella by Donna Brown was fast paced that covers a wide range of emotions in a small number of pages, Helen is probably facing the most difficult of issues, she is in need of a heart transplant and she has five months to live. Cut to 6 months later and Helen is still very much alive and is not really worried about living her life on the edge. She is having an affair with her doc Jack, all whilst her husband and the mother of the donor become more and more suspicious.

Even though Helen is cheating on her husband she is a likable narrator who is being put in a very tough position. She is truly in love with Jack and her husband is less than sympathetic. The grieving mother of the heart donor is using Helen’s guilt to insert herself into Helen’s life more. She is already balancing a tough situation and then thing take a turn for the worst.

My Rating:
