I have shivers running up and down my spine. I just finished “Broken Pieces” by Carla Cassidy and I really hope none of my stairs creak tonight or I’ll likely have a heart attack screaming my head off. If you like books that scare you and have you looking over your shoulder, this one will fit the bill.

Mariah’s childhood wasn’t that great. Her fire and brimstone father was a firm believer in ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’. So much so, that sh
Carla Cassidy has created a story that has the reader’s attention at the very beginning. Mariah Sayers doesn’t seem like a heroine at the beginning, just a woman with a traumatic start in life, yet as the plot unfolds you realize that indeed she is, simply by doing, being constant and overcoming; indeed more than a heroine, she is a strong survivor. This is a good read for those who like myself, enjoy reading books where the universe seems to finally right itself for individuals who not only de ...more
I have a bunch half read books that I'm trying to finish up. Really glad I came back to this one. I am not always in the mood to want to read stories that have elements of sexual assault and healing past trauma. Not to mention teenage daughters, this is a topic I am always trying to get away from. This was a suspenseful, good read. I look forward to reading more of her work.
Pretty good book. The rape & abuse was brutal but not graphically described. I was a bit frustrated with the h at times but not too much. The H is not alpha but was a really good guy. I figured out who the rapist was about 1/3 of the way in but was not truly bothered by that because I was anxiously awaiting the confrontation when Mariah figured it out and there was enough tension with other things going on. Worth a read.
Nicely done romantic suspense. The plot made sense and moved right along. The author kept me guessing about the bad guy. I did guess but mostly because I picked one of the suspects and just stuck with him. A nice balance of romance and suspense. I liked the strong heroine and the nice guy hero.

I picked this up at one of the dollar stores for 1.50. It was well worth it. Everyone I have loaned out to thought it was a great read too. The story kept twisting. It kept you guessing right up to the end who the "bad guy" was. Loved the mother daughter relationship.
Great book. It was full of drama, intrigue, suspense, love, romance and friendship. A definite page turner that will keep you guessing till the end. Well written with a great writing style. Mariah and Dr Hot were just that HOT.

This book is definitley going down on one of my "treasure forever" books. It definitley has a lot of climax points and i am for sure that the end will be astonishing...I look forward to seeing who the killer is.

Broken Pieces is very light reading. I have never read Carla Cassidy's work before, but it is very reminiscent in style to Mary Higgins Clark. A good mystery but a little heavy on the romance.
I never in a MILLION years expected the monster to be...........who it was! I was caught up in this book and read it in one day!!
