One Chance, One Moment by Judith Kohner is book one in The Mandy is the story of Amanda Fields, a nurse who is hired to rehabilitate Garry Danzlo, a famous musician after he was in a horrific accident.
The story opens on the day of Garry’s father’s funeral. Garry is conflicted by his father because Jonathan Danzlo left his family when Garry was a child and before his sister, Melissa was born. Unable to deal with his guilt and sorrow, Garry takes off and gets into a terrible accident. After four months, Garry is still bedridden and has fired the latest nurse hired for his care. He is depressed that his career is over and his guilt about his father’s death. Amanda Fields is recovering from her husband’s murder as well as being accused of the crime. She is approached by Garry’s sister to help Garry and Amanda takes the job for a change of scenery and she needs the money to get her life back on track. Soon the attraction between the two becomes apparent but standing in their way is Garry’s selfish and conniving girlfriend, Daphne and Eddie, Amanda’s friend who is a little more sinister than Amanda seems to realize.
I loved the flirty development of the romance between Garry and Amanda. I love the teasing attraction that left the reader eagerly waiting for more, hoping for the moment when Garry and Amanda will finally admit their attraction and make that more toward a romantic relationship. I enjoyed all the characters who had a part to play in the development of the story. Daphne is a great character to hate and despise. You will cheer when she finally gets put in her place. This book has drama, romance, and mystery. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to finish the series.
