The Last Hour
by Charles Sheehan-Miles
A Thompson Sisters  novel
Publication: April 19th 2013 by Cincinnatus Press
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Book Depository Amazon B & N Goodreads

Twenty-seven year old Carrie Thompson-Sherman has the life she always wanted: her PhD, a prestigious fellowship, and an amazing husband.

Her life begins to unravel as a jealous colleague puts her fellowship in jeopardy and a haunting secret Ray Sherman carried home from Afghanistan comes to light.

Hounded by a federal investigation and the ensuing media feeding frenzy, Carrie and Ray desperately lean on each other, until a disastrous accident puts both Ray and her sister's lives at risk.

In the last hour, Carrie and Ray will each find themselves faced with a choice.

A choice that will change everything.

Interesting facts about The Last Hour
by Charles Sheehan-Miles

1. The condo in Bethesda, MD where Ray and Carrie lived through much of the book is actually at the location of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s office in real life.

2. When I went to do a walk-through at George Washington University Hospital so I could get an idea of the layout for the story, I was escorted out by security. So the interior is completely made up as fiction.

3. Much of the story is driven by an event which took place in the village of Dega Payan in Badakshan Province following an avalanche in the winter of 2012. Dega Payan is a real village, and the avalanche happened, but it happened to a different village.

4. In the first book in the series, I said there were six Thompson sisters, but only actually introduced five. A particularly attentive reader pointed it out in a very funny review suggesting that Andrea possibly forgot to breathe. I had to think up a backstory, which is hinted at in The Last Hour  but won’t be revealed until I get to Andrea’s book.

Alex Thompson’s life is following the script. A pre-law student at Columbia University, she’s focused on her grades, her life and her future. The last thing she needs is to reconnect with the boy who broke her heart.

Dylan Paris comes home from Afghanistan severely injured and knows that the one thing he cannot do is drag Alex into the mess he’s made of his life.

When Dylan and Alex are assigned to the same work study program and are forced to work side by side, they have to make new ground rules to keep from killing each other.

Only problem is, they keep breaking the rules.

The first rule is to never, ever talk about how they fell in love.

A Song for Juila
Book #2 of the Thompson Sisters  series
Publication: December 5th 2012 by Cincinnatus Press

Book Depository Amazon B & N Goodreads

Everyone should have something to rebel against.

Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he’s still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn’t ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job. The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success.

Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she's haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy.

When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.
