The Breakdown – Review

The Breakdown - Review by BA Paris cover The Breakdown

Synopsis:

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…

The Breakdown – Review

This is one book that lived up to the hype (for the most part)! I was a tad intimated to jump in because of the hype, but once I did, I was hooked! Now, I am glad I ended up reading it. 

The Breakdown is a psychological thriller and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I had to know what happened next! It’s a pretty clever book. I feel like I took my time with this novel, even though it only took me two days. I would read a chapter (day), and set it down for a minute. I had to let everything sink in. This is the type of book where it doesn’t happen suddenly. It gradually happens, and you’re hanging on for dear life.

I only had one major downside to reading this book. From about 100(ish) pages in, I got serious The Girl on the Train vibes. Strong vibes. So much so as I guessed one of the major twists, and I got it right. From that early on. While I still enjoyed the book, it’s not a 5 star for me because of those vibes. However, I was surprised at the turn of events Paris brings us, through this wicked tale of breakdowns and paranoia.
