#BookChat Whether I'll Live or Die by Stacy Eaton


“It sounded so simple in theory; ready... aim... fire... but what actually transpired was so much more.”

Officer Nicole Nolan holds the gun steady in her hands, knowing that life will be forever altered once she pulls the trigger. Her position as a small town police officer is to protect those who cannot protect themselves. It is her job, her career and her life.

Amanda stands where protection does not exist. With several failed relationships behind her, Amanda turns a blind eye to the possessiveness Josh displays in order to sooth her desperate need to be loved. As the mental abuse turns violent, Amanda must deal with the denial and embarrassment of being a victim once again. With her emotional and physical health siting on the edge, she must fight to regain control of her life.

A gripping story with one final destination, but will it be life or death?

From the Author:

I have felt the hand of Domestic Violence in my life. I deal with it every day in my job as a police officer. It is a tough subject that few want to tackle, but it needs to be spoken about. Victims need to understand they are not at fault. They need to know they can get help and get away. They need to know that there are people who will help them.

Whether I’ll Live or Die is a very intense novel that will bring to light the nasty parts of domestic violence; the fear, the embarrassment, and the self-blame.  It will show you what a young victim goes through while at the same time showing you how a female police officer must deal with it in the legal sense.

It is not a light hearted love story, no fairytale romance here. This is what real life is like in the hands of an abuser.

What Readers are Saying:

“I could not put this book down until I finished reading it. Whether or not you have ever gone through mental, verbal or physical abuse, this book will strike the cord somewhere deep inside, it will make you feel the pain and anguish of the people brought to life in the story. The book will also give hope. Hope that no matter what the circumstances are, life does not have to stay this bad. It can change and be different. This book helps to learn to protect ourselves (whether you are a man, a woman or a child) against the situations anyone can come across when they expect it the least.” Reader…Tatiana L.
