Center of Gravity

Ava Carson is a woman who has everything she wants. An attractive husband, 2 children, and all the love she can handle to help her overcome the emotional scars of never measuring to the expectations of her mother.

Ava’s life is pretty perfect.

Or is it?

Within  months of marrying Mitchell, months of having her first child with Mitchell- a half brother for Mitchell’s first child- Jack- Ava begins to get the feeling that something is not quite right. On the surface, things look fine- and yet, something is amiss.

One day an accident happens. Jack has been hurt and in Ava’s rush to get to him- Murphy’s Law begins to happen. A childhood friend, a police officer in town, gives Ava a helping hand- and with that, Ava’s world begins to crumble.

Mitchell is a jealous man- and his punishment for Ava is torture- the worst kind of torture a mother can ever experience- being denied the rights to her children.

As battle rages on between Ava and Mitchell- Ava begins to discover that her husband, her beloved- has many secrets in his past- and is willing to do anything to keep them buried.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I read through CENTER OF GRAVITY in a day- I just got sucked into Ava’s story- her desperation, her need, the mystery.

Let’s just say it- Mitchell is a first class jerk. But he’s smart- he’s set things up pretty perfectly. In fact, if Mitchell had not been so self-assured that he was the best- he might have 100% bested Ava.

Ava is the character you root for the entire book- you know that she’s got strength inside her and yet- at times, she’s almost afraid to use it. But, when Ava makes up her mind- no one will stand in her way.

Jack- SO cute- he wants to be a super-hero (Can we say “Awwwwwww”?) Love him. And yet, I wanted to cry sometime how Mitchell treated him- hello- he’s your son! He just wants to be loved!

CENTER OF GRAVITY had a HUSH LITTLE BABY by Suzanne Redfearn feel to me (and that is a good thing!)

Bottom line: It’s a short read, quick chapters that fly by, and you’ll quickly find yourself engrossed in Ava;s story. Perfect for an afternoon by the pool- slightly heavier than a light beach read- but not so heavy to make you feel all bogged down.
