Book Review / The Breakdown by BA Paris

THE NEW CHILLING, PROPULSIVE NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside―the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped.

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby.

The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…

MY REVIEW

I enjoyed this very much!    This book had me on the edge of my seat nearly the whole way through.  You have this great beginning where Cass drives past a woman who has broken down in a side road.  She stops but the woman does not get out, so Cass drives on thinking that she is ok.  It is only the next day she finds out that the woman she passed was dead.  Ashamed to admit that she drove past her before she died, Cass keeps this to herself.  We follow Cass in this story as strange things start happening to her, is someone now out to get her too or is she going mad.

What I loved about this book the most was the build up.  I had to find out what happened next, is Cass mad or is there really someone out to get her. I had to know.  I read this in two sittings, but on the same day.  I could not put this down!  And that ending, such a great plot twist!  I saw half of it coming but the other half of the twist I had not been expecting and I loved that!
