Book Description

Esther feels like her family of four has become a family of three with a live-in social work project. She is never more aware of her failure to fit in than at her eighteenth birthday party, when the guest of honour becomes the odd one out. One impulsive act of rebellion will change everything – whether or not Esther is ready to deal with the consequences.

Cheryl lives a drama-free life – and its killing her. Motherhood has been a disappointment and the days are melting into one another, one endless blur of nothingness, funded by welfare payments and a small town that seems to be shrinking in on her. Escaping the monotony is becoming a matter of life or death.

Carla is beautiful and wealthy, and ambitious to the core. She’s new in town to find a fresh start, and it doesn’t take much effort to line up a suitable job, then partner and home. The question for Carla is, can a promising future cancel out a shadowed past?

Their lives couldn’t be more different – but Esther, Cheryl and Carla will all discover that finding peace will come at a cost…someone might have to die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story June 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story revolves around three central characters, women who seem to be at a crossroads in life, thinking about the past and how to let go of the ghosts that still haunt them. The reader gets a glimpse in each character's life, as the story weaves through them. Esther, Cheryl, and Carla are all intriguing. Their lives hang in a limbo, but the story takes us into places we never expect. The suspense, the fast pacing, and the twists and turns make for an enjoyable, surprising read. There were some things that I never expected. Kelly Rimmer's characters jump off of the pages, can easily be related to by people. That's one of the great things about a book- when a reader can emotionally connect with a character. If you're a fan of contemporary women's fiction, weaved with some suspense and romance, then check out Suspending Reality.

3.0 out of 5 stars not impressed June 15, 2012

I liked this book up until the three characters were connected. Then I didn't like it. I don't want to give away the story, but for me the connection of the 3 women was just so not believable that I felt like I wasted my time reading it.

I bought this book by mistake but decided to give it a try. It's very poorly written. Wordy. No style. Amateurish. Save your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read. April 25, 2012

This was a great read. I love how the plot resolves, and it's fast paced enough to make me want to read all the way through. The one thing I'd work on as the author would be the dialogue - it needs to be more informal, 'real speech', not perhaps so grammatical. But I'd definitely read a Rimmer book again!

More About the Author

I love the tension of the last few pages of an absolutely smashing book - reading as fast as you can because you can't wait to find out what happens, but trying to slow time down so the book doesn't end ! That's what I am striving for in my writing - I hope my readers walk away from my books having been at least a little moved, but always thoroughly entertained.

My debut novel, Suspending Reality, seemed to write itself over a very intense period of about 3 weeks after I moved cities. These three characters were following me everywhere I went and I couldn't stop daydreaming about them - so I stopped everything and sat down at the keyboard to try to get them out of my head ! As the story progressed they continued to surprise me and the finished product was nothing like what I thought I was writing. I've written a lot of words since then but these 60,000 odd are in so many ways my favourites.

Speaking of favourites, I'm an Australian author and I use "Aussie" english - we use "favoUrites" (not favorites) and "realise" (not realize) etc.

If you decide to spend some hours of your life reading my work, thanks in advance, and I really hope you enjoy it.
