I really enjoyed Fractured Lines, it took a while to get into it but I put that down to having just read a 21 book series.

As a dyslexic reader it is great to be able to get into a book and enjoy it.

The twist and turns were enthralling. It was a good read. I liked that it was perfectly believable and you could see that would be or even some of our current politicians (both USA and UK) would be like Mr Gorman senior. Nigel Keeble - Cornwall, United Kingdom

Recommends it for: Psychological thriller , drama, romance fans
Recommended to Molly by: Amazon, Bookbub, author newsletter
Overbearing family doesn’t begin to describe the connections and relationships in this one

Family secrets are much bigger than Andi ever dreamed possible - horrifyingly so

Death seems to be the last great escape for Scott - what an awful way to be compelled to live

Psychological thriller, extreme family drama and sudden romance despite obstacles and especially in the face of them

This one really didn't go in the directions i was expecting. It was full of just enough twists that what you expected didn't always happen when you expected it. While twisty and a little over the top, the story line flowed nicely so you didn't get overwhelmed. ...more

Fractured Lines by Maggie Thom starts off a little slow but quickly builds suspense as Andi tries to figure out what is going on with her mom, “Uncle Scott,” and her neighbor. Imagine inheriting a cabin from someone you didn’t even know died. Why would he will her that property with its strange goings-on? How was her mother involved and why was she not answering questions? And the story keeps getting more convoluted.

Characters seem unreal and too convenient, relationships, at times, strain reali

Fractured Lines by Maggie Thom

What a super novel. This is the first Maggie Thom book I have read. Who is Delilah and what secrets is she hiding? As the story unfolds she becomes more and more mysterious and withdrawn which leaves her daughter Andi looking for hidden answers to explain this odd behaviour and mysterious disappearances. A great mystery/romance, well written and easy to read. I will certainly be looking to read more of Maggie’s books.

There was a lot crammed into this book! Family intrigue mixed with sordid mystery made for an engaging story. The writing style isn’t to my usual taste, being kind of dramatic while I prefer a straighter style, but it fit the plot-line well as that was also pretty dramatic!

The concept of the book was interesting and kept me reading until the end. I was curious to see the outcome of the father/uncle/daughter relationship. However, I found myself not caring about many of the other characters in the book. A few times there were repeated explanations of things which happened earlier in the book that I didn't feel necessary. This book had everything and the kitchen sink thrown in. I would have preferred if it was more focused. That being said, I enjoyed the main charac ...more
