The Broken

The Broken - Shelley Coriell I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

This book hooked me from the first few pages and never let go. It's one of those that I didn't want to finish, however instead of reading in one sitting - as I would normally - I kept putting it down to make it last longer. It's billed as a "romantic suspense" but I'm not sure how it's much different from my usual murder mysteries. Maybe there is a *tad* more skin, but not much. I've read plenty of traditional murder mysteries with sexual tension. I wouldn't let the "romantic" classification scare any mystery lovers away. This is great, whatever you call it. I didn't want to let it go so much that I did something I almost *never* do: I read the first few chapters of the next book at the end. It would appear the next book picks up the story line of one of the other characters on the Apostle team. Great concept. Can't wait!!! Can I get an ARC. Now? Please? Grovel...
