Reviews Little Broken Things

  • Chelsea Humphrey
    Little Broken Things is indeed the next desirable novel for fans of Liane Moriarty and Amy Hatvany; I could spot so many similarities in their writing styles and, while Baart is a new to me author, I felt like I had come home to a familiar story all the same. Little Broken Things is a story filled with emotion, tension, and domestic drama. The book itself had some dark secrets spilled into the narrative and did manage to maintain an overall heavy...

    4.5 StarsI have a new favorite author to adore! I was immediately drawn into the story from the first pages. It is beautifully written and captivating, I was engaged by the mysterious texts from the start!I could imagine myself getting a text from my sister, "I have something for you" and immediate panic strikes! This is possibly not good! The story and characters are multi-layered and ultimately reveal their inner motivations that drive them to ...

    3 stars. This was a story about a mother’s love and sacrifice for her child and a family coming together after years of separation. At times, the book had my heart pounding, my worry intensifying, my stomach churning and my hope growing. There were some wild twists and turns that caught me completely off guard. I liked the main characters Quinn and Everlee. The remaining characters I had more of a hard time connecting with. Some ended up growin...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. The title of this book is spot-on for a family that has grown apart for various and sundry reasons. A mysterious text from one sister to another will set things in motion for a reunion that may prove to hold some answers and possibly repair damage done. This was a little on the tepid side for me. A mite too predictable, and an ending too pat. On the upside, I liked the notion of how guilt ac...

    3.5 StarsTraveling Sisters NetGalley Group Review by Brenda with Norma, Lindsay, Holly, Susanne, Jan and HollyI read Little Broken Things along with six of my Traveling Sisters and it left us in different coulees once again. We were mostly split into two different ones, some sisters were lost in the lush coulee and enjoying this one and others were lost in the dry coulee and finding themselves bored and napping leaving them uninterested in this o...

    3.5 stars rounded up!LITTLE BROKEN THINGS by NICOLE BAART was an engaging, suspenseful, and a slower paced mystery novel which had an intriguing storyline revolving around family secrets and the sacrifices and bond between mothers and daughters.  Little Broken Things I thought was the perfect title for this novel which is filled with familial broken relationships and the sacrifices of a mother’s love for her family.  With a little honesty, ho...

    2.5 I am not going to rehash the plot, and I really wish I could have liked this more. It was very slow moving and very predictable. The last third of the book held the most interesting for me, but I also found it unbelievable. Nora and Tiffany, their story just didn't hold together. Nora and Quinn's mother was a piece of work, lived in her own la la Land. Everlee though, the little girl I adored. Another sisters read that had us a opposite ends ...

    2.25 Stars* (rounded down)Quinn gets summoned by her sister Nora via text: “I have something for you.” Never in Quinn’s wildest dreams does she imagine that the summons involves a little girl. Or that Nora needs Quinn to hide her and keep her safe – without any explanation. It is clear that something sinister is going on, yet Quinn has no idea what. And then Nora takes off leaving her with a little girl she calls “Lucy.” Hiding “Luc...

    4.5/5Have you seen the buzz surrounding this gem of a book? I sure have, especially on Instagram and I haven’t missed the comparisons to Liane Moriarty and as much as I usually hate when books are touted as the next (insert name of huge, best selling book) I can definitely see why the comparison is being used. Fans of books in Moriarty’s vein will adore this one, I can see it being picked as a book club read very easily!This is told using var...
