The Breakdown by B A Paris


The Breakdown by B A Paris

Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels Of 2017 by Bustle!


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…

You won't be able to put down B. A. Paris's The Breakdown, the next chilling, propulsive novel from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors.

Was hooked right away!

Page Turner!

Takes you on an emotional ride. Cass's mother had early onset dementia. So when she starts forgetting things she believes that she is destined to suffer the same fate. Or is she? B.A. Paris will take you on such an emotional journey with Cass that you won't be able to put it down. Just when you think you've figured things out she throws something at you that makes you doubt yourself. There is always another surprise around the corner and you won't believe how it ends.

Did not live up to my exepctations

The Breakdown is B.A. Paris's follow up to her amazing debut novel, Behind Closed Doors, which is one of my favorite thrillers. With Behind Closed Doors being such a great read, I went into The Breakdown with high expectations that I' sad to say weren't met. Cass tended to get on my nerves more than anything and I had no desire to keep reading. I actually didn't touch my Kindle for 3 days, which is extremely unusual for me. I still plan on reading B.A. Paris's next book with hopes that I enjoy it more than The Breakdown. 
I voluntarily received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
