A Five-Minute Life by Emma Scott
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2019
Cover Designer: Melissa Panio-Petersen
Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

I have to read something from Emma. I know how much you love her! Her books always sound amazing and I love the covers.
Oh wow, she literally only has five minutes to remember things?? That would totally mess me up… How does she even have time to write anything down and then read afterwards?? I’m so intrigued. The plot reminds me of the movie Barefoot which, if you haven’t watched yet, you definitely should, Sophie! It’s right up your alley and it’s honestly so so cute (and heartbreaking).
Thanks for the rec Sophie!!!! And it reminds me of “Before I Go to Sleep” by SJ Watson (fantastic thriller!)
Oh I’ll have to check that one out!
It would be a perfect pool side read. And I love the gorgeous cover too!
Exactly! You are spot on Laura!
That is a beautiful cover! I haven’t read anything by this author before and I am excited to learn more. Thanks for sharing this! 🙂
You are most welcome!
This cover is absolutely beautiful. I’m yet to read Emma but I really want to….
Oh Caro I am so sure you’ll love it!!
