Once, so very long ago, she had watched him like this when he came to pick her up from a date...Her stomach fluttered and burned with infatuation and desire. She would watch him walk up the path and think, 'This must be love.'

But that was so very long ago. Now Liz is wary and afraid. She has made a terrible mistake and it cannot be undone.

Alex believes that today will be the day she comes back to him. Today will be the day his wife and young son finally come home. Today they will be a family again.

But Liz knows that some things can never be mended. Some marriages are too broken. Some people are too damaged. Now the most important thing in her life is her son, Luke, and she will do anything in her power to protect him.

So when Alex is a few minutes late bringing Luke back Liz begins to worry and when he is an hour late her concern grows and when he is later still she can feel her whole life changing because: what if Alex is not just late?

The terrible secrets of a marriage, the love that can turn to desperation, the refuge and heartbreak of being a parent, the fragile threads that cradle a family...Three Hours Lateis a gripping and deeply emotional novel of almost unbearable suspense from a writer of great insight and empathy.

    Comments about Three Hours Late:

    Another incredible story by Nicole Trope. I have totally loved her other books that this one was just as good. You just never know how it will end until you turn the last page. It gives you an insight to both sides of the story. Nicole keep you guessing throughout the story. You just can't put it down. I would totally recommend this book.

      Comments about Three Hours Late:

      This book is suspenseful and very well written. Sure does open your eyes to what can go on behind closed doors and makes you gain a deeper understanding into mental illness and what desperation can do to a person.
      Heart wrenching, suspenseful and a page turner. Only flaw is I read it too fast..

        Comments about Three Hours Late:

        I read Three Hours Late with a breathless sense of anticipation. From the moment Alex fails to return with Luke on time, the tension is unbearable as the minutes tick by.
        Three Hours Late is a compelling and confronting novel, probing an emotive issue with sensitivity. Though a novel skewed towards an adult audience, I think this should be compulsory reading for mature teens who could benefit enormously from Liz's hindsight. I found Three Hours Late impossible to put down and I recommend it without hesitation.
