Disclosure: Life as Leels received a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for my review.
D.C. paralegal Jezebel Stone’s tardiness often gets her in trouble, but this time it leads to meeting her dream man. Her choice of metro seats places her on track for finding love again. But when their ride ends in a fiery crash, their separation sends her on a mission of reuniting with him and finishing their fateful trip.
But instead, it entangles Jezebel in the twisted lives of those determined to destroy each other. This prickly path also holds the potential of leading Jezebel to an unlikely place of joy. Finding joy seems impossible when life is literally exploding all around her.
LATE FOR FATE won Best First Chapter from WRITERS’ TYPE
“Jones is a gifted author with a talent for sharp, fast-paced prose that keeps the pages turning. Late for Fate moves at a thrilling pace. It’s studded with sharp-edged, witty dialogue and quirky characters that stuck with me long after reading. Jones’ knack for creating stories that feel familiar but are unique in voice and plot make every read (including Late for Fate!) a great one. – Kathleen Shoop, best-selling author of the Letter Series and After the Fog
“Ms. Jones has perfectly captured how one moment in time can change a life for both good and bad. Excellent story with well written characters and a terrific (sometimes terrifying) theme. A great read. Highly recommended.” – Amazon Review
“Lori has shown an extremely deft touch. I enjoyed the entire reading experience in second attempt at authoring. I enjoyed the characters, the quick pacing, the brushes with fate, the witty banter and the slick manner in which Lori handles the alternating points of view.” – James J. Robinson,Jr.
“Scene-stealing Nicole had me laughing out loud. From the opener, I was hooked.” – Carolyn Menke
Late for Fate starts out quick with the ‘action’ which I really liked. There is nothing worse than a drawn out story line.
But what you think is going to be a sweet story line of romance, really becomes a twisted scenario.
This is one of those reads where you can see what the lead cannot (or will not) see. You know in horror movies where you hear the music and know the bad guy is coming and you start screaming for the actors to hear you and turn around and get out of there? You may find yourself doing the same with Late for Fate. (Just be forewarned, she doesn’t hear you!)
I enjoyed reading Late for Fate. It kept my attention and every time I started to get content (forgetting this was a suspense book) I was taken by surprise by a slight twist that kept me turning pages.
