Crushed by Kate Hamer Review

I received Crushed from PGC Books Canada to read and review and although it isn't really the type of book I usually prefer to read, I still enjoyed the story at times. It took a few chapters to be able to engage in the story and have an idea of what was going on. Once my attention was grabbed, I was intrigued by what was happening but it didn't quite last all the way through the entire book. 

About halfway through, I found myself skimming passages that seemed to be dragging and overly described. I thought it would have done the novel justice if the author didn't include as much details. That resulted in my eventual loss of interest.

Although it wasn't quite my style of story, I'm sure other readers will enjoy it. It's a dark and disturbing novel that has a lot of potential for fans of this genre.  

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Here's a quick synopsis:
Phoebe stands on Pulteney Bridge, tights gashed from toe to thigh. The shock of mangled metal and blood-stained walls flashes through her mind as she tries to cover her face so she won't be recognised. It wouldn't do to be spotted looking like this. She's missing a shoe. She feels sick.

Phoebe thought murder and murder happened. Thoughts are just thoughts, they said. Now she knows they were wrong.

At home, Phoebe arranges the scissors and knives so they point toward her mother's room. She is exhausted, making sure there's no trace of herself - not a single hair, not even her scent - left anywhere in the house. She must not let her thoughts unravel, because if they do, there's no telling who might be caught in the crossfire, and Phoebe will have to live with the consequences. (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading,
