Grace, new mother of baby Miles, desperately wants to put her rough past behind her for good, but she finds it impossible when her path crosses with Hadley’s, and her quest for a new start quickly spirals out of control and turns into a terrifying flight for survival.
Stronger together than apart, the two find their fates inextricably entwined, and as the danger closes in, each must decide how much she is willing to risk for the other.
A powerful story of self-discovery, Hadley and Grace is the heart-racing tale of two women facing insurmountable odds, racing to stay one step ahead of the trouble that is chasing them, and discovering new kinds of love and family along the wayHadley & Grace by Suzanne Redfearn
This review will not contain any spoilers, it will just be an overall summation of my thoughts. First of all, I have to say that this book is wild from start to finish. It’s fast-paced and it’s one of those books that anything can happen and you can’t look away. While reading it, I felt sucked in, like when you’re walking past a TV and the ID channel is on and you just can’t look away because you need to know how everyone got into this situation.
I also feel as though you were running alongside them. Everything happens very quickly and the book leaves you with very little downtime and very little breathing room, which I thought was perfect for this type of story. It doesn’t throw you in the land of make-believe, where there are no consequences and everything will turn out okay. Anything can happen, and that’s the fun of it.
Overall, I rated it a 5/5 on Goodreads. This story was super gripping and was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys realistic fiction and a whole lot of action.
