When Quinn Cruz receives a cryptic text message from her older sister, Nora, she doesn't think much of it. They haven't seen each other in nearly a year, and their relationship consists mostly of infrequent phone calls and the occasional e-mail. But when a haunted-looking Nora shows up just hours later, a chain reaction is set into motion that will change both of their lives forever. It's a matter of life and death, of family and freedom, and the lengths a woman will go to protect the ones she loves.

It was a good, slow build psychological thriller. If there were a word for a thriller with a little less thrill I would use that. I did like the family dynamics played into the novel. A soft thriller?

A family drama centered around 2 sisters with a little mystery and suspense thrown in. Nothing spectacular - an average easy read that entertained me.

"I have something for you" is the text message Quinn receives from her older sister, Nora, who she rarely talks to and hasn't seen in quite some time. She thinks nothing of it, until Nora wants to meet, and delivers a wide-eye, scared little girl and asks Quinn to keep her safe and tell no one.

No Quinn and her husband must care for this strange girl, all while trying to figure out why.

I have to say it was an enjoyable, quick read. I loved the small town setting and the characters were mostly believable.

The first 2/3 of the book kept my attention, however the last 1/3 seemed to drag on and I just wanted the story to hurry up and end. The conclusion was something I suspected, I just wasn't sure how it would come full circle.

Little Broken Things is the story of a troubled family with strained relationships and secrets. It was worth reading, though it wasn't a stand out novel in my eyes.

Thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for allowing me the egalley to read and give my honest review.

This book could have been better but it wasn't overall terribly bad. I enjoyed it, however, I felt it built up only to let you down very gently. When the events came to a head it was much less climactic than previous parts of the book.
