Diana Pringle, Retail Associate at the Gold Mine, recommends The Breakdown by B.A. Paris.
The Breakdown follows Cass, who decides to go against the wishes of her husband on a rainy night and take the dangerous shortcut home. She notices a car pulled over with a woman inside, just staring blankly out the window, why wasn’t she waving for help?
Feeling spooked, Cass decides to drive off. Days later she finds out the woman was brutally murdered, a woman she had newly befriended.
Cass is overwhelmed with guilt and cannot stop wondering what would have happened if she stopped and helped the woman. Starting that day, her life begins to fall apart.
She is consumed with guilt about the death of her new friend. Her mind now becomes her new worry as she forgets appointments, where she parked her car and items she ordered for a baby she is not expecting. Then the silent calls come everyday and Cass feels she is being watched. Cass doesn’t know who she can trust, including herself.
This is a fast moving, who-done-it, psychological thriller… something I do not normally read and I was pleasantly surprised. I randomly grabbed this book from the book room at the Gold Mine.
You can always be sure to find a great read on the bookshelves of the Gold Mine!
