My Review This is a novel with intense emotional themes. I was hooked right from the beginning, Joanne Simon TAilele does not waste anytime diving into the gritty. This one definitely falls into a Thriller/Suspens sub-category of Women's Fiction and the author does not disappoint. These characters have major issues because of past mistakes and their journeys are tragic. As a mother I really connected to this novel and I am not going to lie, the tears were flowing. I loved the plot twists, I was kept on my toes throughout the whole book.
Joanne Simon Tailele was born a midwest girl in Youngstown Ohio and wrote her first short story at the age of ten in blue colored pencil. For most of her life, writing was private, for her own enjoyment and therapy. In 2010, she discovered NANOWRIMO and challenged herself to write a 50K novel in 30 days. She finished it, but admits it was awful. After joining an online writer's group, she picked away at the story for a full year with the help of the other girls in my group from all over the globe. It took another year of edits and rewrites before she I joined a local writer's group and felt the script was ready for the public eye. Two and half years later, ACCIDENT went public. Her second novel, Town Without Mercy, was released Janaury, 2014. Joanne currently resides on Marco Island on the SW Gulf coast of Florida with her husband. The proud the parents of 8 his-and-hers kids and 9 grandkids, they spend their time boating and enjoying the white sandy beach of Marco Island when she is not writing.
