Timothy S. Graves, a good man. He is a business genius, not a neophyte, and he is determined to reach the top rung any way he can. A solid marriage, set financial future, all neatly wrapped up... or is it? Shirley doesn’t see it that way. She just might do something outrageous, something just for her, something shocking. What if? “If,” could transform everything in an instant. When the psychic with her ‘vision’ tells good ole Timmy her revelations, a series of events unfold that will change the lives of those around him forever.

For a novella this book was on point in some areas. If is a major word when you thinking or talking out loud. What if I did this today instead of that, what if I slept in a few minutes more will that affect my day?  In this novella we are introduced to the word If and the life of Timothy. He thinks he has it all until one day his world is flipped upside down with this wife wanting more out of her life, he visits a psychic who says he has 24 hours to live make the most of his life, most people would make amends with those they have wrong, told their loves one they loved them one more time heck even eat their favorite foods one more time. Timothy doesn’t do that he doesn’t want to believe it until the end of the story. Only reason I gave this book a 4 rating is I wanted to know what his friend wanted. He kept calling him and he kept ignoring it, it may not seem to be a big deal but I just wonder if maybe his friend had something important to say.
I will be reading book two to see what else this author will give us to think about.
