The Broken Girls

Summary: A suspense novel from the award-winning author of The Haunting of Maddy Clare…

Vermont, 1950. There’s a place for the girls whom no one wants–the troublemakers, the illegitimate, the too smart for their own good. It’s called Idlewild Hall. And in the small town where it’s located, there are rumors that the boarding school is haunted. Four roommates bond over their whispered fears, their budding friendship blossoming–until one of them mysteriously disappears. . . .

Vermont, 2014. As much as she’s tried, journalist Fiona Sheridan cannot stop revisiting the events surrounding her older sister’s death. Twenty years ago, her body was found lying in the overgrown fields near the ruins of Idlewild Hall. And though her sister’s boyfriend was tried and convicted of murder, Fiona can’t shake the suspicion that something was never right about the case.

When Fiona discovers that Idlewild Hall is being restored by an anonymous benefactor, she decides to write a story about it. But a shocking discovery during the renovations will link the loss of her sister to secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the past–and a voice that won’t be silenced. . . .

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

SO many people have been telling me to read this book for EVER and I kept meaning to. And then after absolutely LOVING The Sun Down Motel,I vowed 2020 would be the year I read The Broken Girls.

 

What I Liked:

The cover- although not as eye catching as The Sun Down Motel- still a good cover.

Fiona. I loved her character- also I loved how she was a reporter dating a cop- talk about some conflicts of interest.

The ending- I loved how this story was wrapped up.

 

Bottom line: For me, I did enjoy The Sun Down Motel a bit more- but The Broken Girls is def a good book.
