Nevertheless, as each day passes they learn more about one another leaving them to wonder what happened in college if their feelings are so strong?
Just as they begin to develop a new relationship, their love is put to the test. They both have to communicate and decide if their love is strong enough to stand the test this time.

One Moment In Time is filled with romance, passion, intrigue, suspense and a load of drama. All in all it is another glimpse at Linda Hudson Smith's excellent work Mrs. Smith has brought us another great book delving into the struggle of true love. This book made me laugh, upset me and made me want to butt heads with that horrible ex. I thoroughly enjoying OMIT from beginning to end.
