As We Know It
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Deep beneath the ocean, stretching hundreds of miles alongside the Pacific Northwest coastline, lies the Cascadia subduction zone—a fault on the verge of unleashing a catastrophic earthquake, thirty times more powerful than the San Andreas. Unfortunately, like most tourists, Elena Cordova is oblivious.
She’s got her own pent-up stress to deal with, a humiliating breakup that’s driven her to end her tenure as a human doormat once and for all. So, when a pickpocket makes off with the last remnant of her relationship, she takes action—only to get trapped with him when disaster strikes.
Now, if either one hopes to survive, they’ll have to get past their initial impressions and work together… because in fifteen minutes, half the town will be underwater.
Such good characters!
This book was amazing. Fast paced, stressful and humorous all in one. While I don't typically like books about catastrophes, the author won me over with incredibly lovable characters. I am a huge fan of the first person perspective where you can be in their head, hearing their thoughts and this main character has a great mind, thinking what I would think but never say out loud. The romance in the book is believable and adorable. The story line is incredible and based on a plausible reality. It's just an all-around good read...that I plowed through in two days because I couldn't put it down. Now if only I could make the characters come to life so I could invite them over for dinner!
This was an amazing read. It had a ton of action from start to finish along with some humor and romance, but only enough to keep the story from being too overwhelming in tragedy. Couldn't put it down. Highly recommended!!
