Book Review: Broken by KA Hobbs 1

The Connected Series

By KA Hobbs

Release Date: Jan 12 2015
My name is Lauren. You’ve met my daughter, Abigail. She is pretty amazing isn’t she? I want you to understand a little about me, about why I did what I did. I took away Doug’s chance to experience those first few years of his daughters life, but I feel like in doing so, I lost the rest of them. If I could trade those first few years for the rest of her life, I would. In a heartbeat. 
No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. I hope I can be forgiven for mine.

Favorite Quote:


“I’m that little gust of wind you feel when there is no window open, I’m that little shiver up your spine when you’re perfectly warm.  I’m that little drop of rain you feel when the sky is perfectly blue – and the sky will be blue for you today beautiful, but if for some reason it isn’t… It isn’t bad luck, it is all the Angels crying in happiness for you…”

My Review:

It would be extremely hard to write letters from a dead woman to her child and remaining relatives, and not be at least a little sappy.  K.A. Hobbs did a good job of keeping the sap to a bearable level.  While it was sad and squeezed the heart, it was also touching, and even quite believable.  I had my doubts going in after being team Doug from reading the first two volumes, although I found myself appreciating Lauren’s sacrifice, and quickly began to care for her as the story unfolded.

About the Author
KA Hobbs lives with her husband in Essex. When she isn’t lost in a book or creating one, she loves to cook, swim and shop. Her happiest times are always when she is surrounded by family and friends. She is a little obsessed with the Tudors and would love to go back to that period in time. 

One day, while watching TV, a scene came to her, completely out of the blue. She could see the scene unfolding, could picture the characters so clearly. She couldn’t get to her laptop quick enough and spent hours writing not only that scene, but lots of others too.
She will happily admit to being grumpy when she doesn’t get to write, she loves her characters and spending time listening to what they have to say. KA Hobbs is currently working on other books in The Connected Series.
