All the Broken People
Woodstock, New York seems to be where All the Broken People end up. It’s where Lucy finds herself while trying to outrun her past. While there, she meets Vera and John who have their own problems. They have a plan to make John disappear: fake his death. They ask Lucy for her help, but everything goes wrong when John turns up actually dead. All the evidence points to Lucy and in this small town where she’s a stranger, she doesn’t know whom to trust. Was someone after John or has Lucy’s past come back to haunt her? Everyone has secrets and no one is really whom you think they are.
It wasn’t the worst book I’ve ever read, but I didn’t super enjoy it either. I had a hard time liking Lucy and I thought her relationship with John and Vera was fairly odd. Don’t even get me started on Rachel or Davis. I think the moral of the story was don’t ever agree to help someone fake their death on the off chance that they actually die and you look pretty suspicious. I’m sure there is a very specific group of people who will enjoy this book, but I don’t include myself in it. You would have to like murder mysteries with lots of broken people, multiple suspects, but no suspense. If you don’t have anything else to read right now, then have at it, but you might want to wait for something better.
