IN AN INSTANT by Suzanne Redfearn – Spotlight & Giveaway



A deeply moving story of carrying on even when it seems impossible.

In Suzanne Redfearn’s new novel, IN AN INSTANT (LakeUnionPublishing), life is over in an instant for sixteen-year-old Finn Miller when a devastating car accident tumbles her and ten others over the side of a mountain. Suspended between worlds, she watches helplessly as those she loves struggle to survive.

Impossible choices are made, decisions that leave the survivors tormented with grief and regret. Unable to let go, Finn keeps vigil as they struggle to reclaim their shattered lives. Jack, her father, who seeks vengeance against the one person he can blame other than himself; her best friend, Mo, who bravely searches for the truth as the story of their survival is rewritten; her sister Chloe, who knows Finn lingers and yearns to join her; and her mother, Ann, who saved them all but is haunted by her decisions. Finn needs to move on, but how can she with her family still in pieces?

I’ve enjoyed reading Suzanne’s compelling novels. She digs deep into characters personality traits, both positive and negative. IN AN INSTANT is smartly plotted creating a growing momentum to the last page.


Suzanne Redfearn is a summa cum laude graduate from California Polytechnic University and is an architect, in addition to an author. She is also an avid surfer, golfer, skier, and Angels fan. She lives with her husband and children in California.

She also happens to be a really smart and warm person. I got to spend some time with her at her restaurant in southern California.

  5. My closest experience was a serious car wreck in 2007. I was airlifted to Memphis Trauma Center. I prayed that I would live long enough to see my son before something happened to me. I ended up with back injuries, a cracked cheek bone, black eye and living with PTSD on a daily basis. Sometimes I have to fight the urge to not give up driving.

  12. I survived an abusive with alcoholic husband in a first marriage. It was awful, I couldn’t be a few minutes late getting home from work or anywhere. I had lost my sis and that opened my eyes to just pack up and leave it, that life is too short.
