  • "This book was so good I couldnt put it down. Not always one for ghost stories, but this mixed ghosts + history +mystery and was just captivating. "

  • "So many types of books rolled into one beautiful package; mystery, thriller, historical fiction, supernatural. Well written with nicely developed characters."

  • "Fun read with a few twists along the way. A ghost story blended with 2 mysteries. A story of the damage that is done by silencing our truth and the power of friendship. I highly recommend this one!"

  • "The Broken Girls was a first-rate thriller and a great read in every way: plot, character development, pacing. There were two separate timelines in the story, so it would have been easy for the details to get lost, but this was a well-crafted story."

  • "I loved this book! It hooked me from the first page! I read this book in a day. It was interesting to see how the two story's were twisted together! "

  • "I don't usually enjoy thrillers but this one kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more. I liked the addition of a supernatural element--which drove fear in the hearts of the characters--and that, despite the ghost story, the plot and characters still felt grounded in reality."

  • "This book was amazing! My favorite from book of the month. "
