Annabel, a troubled young woman trying to put her life back together, decides to take a trip to the Suffolk coast to clear her head and get away from her mother. But when she arrives in the little seaside town, she discovers a series of grisly murders have taken place and police are searching for a twisted killer.
After a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger, Jude, the course of her life changes and soon she finds peace in a world away from the misery she has known.
But when Jude comes under suspicion from the police, and her idyllic world is threatened, Annabel’s happy existence starts to become a nightmare.
Can Annabel escape her painful past or is her fate sealed? And why is she haunted by horrific visions when she seems on the verge of finding happiness?
This astonishing novel will take you on a shattering journey through Annabel’s fight for survival and will ask if the greatest threat we pose is to ourselves.
Suitable for over 18’s only. It contains graphic scenes some readers may find disturbing.
Betsy is back and darker than ever, unbeknown to me that this story was previously published under the title of Beneath the Watery Moon which is the only book that I haven’t read by the author. and to be perfectly honest I am glad that I hadn’t read it because this book has had a revamp…..Not only does it have a stunning a new cover but the actual story has been revamped.So anyone that has previously read this will certainly want to read this new version.
The author grabs your attention right from the start and keeps you there until the very last page when we meet Annabel and follow her on a roller coaster journey when she decides to take a trip to Suffolk things soon change when she meets meets Judd.
I can not begin to tell you how good this book is….it is darker than dark! certainly not for the faint hearted. There are scenes in Broken that will blow your brain because they are that twisted and rather gruesome. Giving me plenty of OMG moments. This is a story that you do not want to read in the dark!
If you haven’t already gathered…..I freaking love this book and I am looking forward to more books in this style by the author. I loved everything about it. You can not help but get wrapped up in the story, Betsy is one sicko author with a very twisted mind telling a story that will stay with you forever.
Without giving to much away, this is one of those stories where you decide what is real…Absolutely mind blowing. I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.
Thank you to Heather Fitt at Bloodhound books for a copy and inviting me to take part on the tour
