Both the author and narrator were new to me. I found that this mystery book was quite enjoyable and thought provoking. I liked the hidden romance in it as well and thought the character development and descriptions were great. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

To say I enjoyed Three Seconds to Rush would be almost wrong, since the situation presented in this book would truly be every mother's nightmare, but this is a book I will certainly listen to again.
The characters in this book draws you in, they are well developed and believable.
Tara wakes up, overdosed, confused and missing her son. She claims innocence and everyone sees guilt. She calls on an old friend, Reid who is a lawyer, whom she trusts to believe her regardless of what the evidence showed.
As the story unfolds, it holds your attention, twists your emotions and keeps you to the end.
The emotion of the narrator uses makes the story come alive, tugging at your own emotions as she reads. Laura Jennings is a master!
I requested this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a suspense and kind of thriller novel with an easily predictable twist (I guessed it in the second chapter), but enjoyable plot nonetheless.
Tara wakes up in hospital after an overdose, having never used drugs. She then embarks on a journey in order to retain custody of her son, Wylie, with the help of defence attorney and childhood friend Reid, who isn't altogether convinced of her innocence, and Reid's investigative friend Willow.
Tara was a well characterised character, even if at times she annoyed me. I much preferred Willow and Reid, especially Reid, who was very much a flawed individual.
The narrator, Laura Jennings, was also brilliant. Every character felt like they had distinctive voices and it felt much easier to sympathise with Tara through the narration.
Danielle Stewart impressed me with her style and interesting plot. Sometimes a love interest can overwhelm a story, and it is refreshing to hear such a well balanced novel. The directional change between now and then was interesting and built an understanding of the complex character that is Reid. Tara is not so complicated. I like a person who refuses to be a victim, and enjoy authors who write about strong women.
I'm looking forward to the next novel in this series.
