Review: Breaking Jess by H.B. Moore

Heidi Reads... Breaking Jess by H.B. Moore

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


What do a crooked detective, an upstanding psychiatrist, and a teenager who can’t remember killing her parents all have in common? Nine years of lies.

My Review

There are so many layers to this compelling and suspenseful story! Jess is now a young adult, having spent the past years since the murders in a metal institution. Her brother gets her a new psychiatrist, which puts into motion the uncovering of secrets and memories of the past. The sense of anxiety and danger is at the surface as the real killer makes moves to prevent Jess from revealing what her mind is finally ready to face. It was fascinating to read the story from the first person perspectives of both Jess and Dr. Mayer. The pace was steady in the beginning, but built momentum as the climax approached through several twists and turns. What stood out to me was that the book didn't end there with a typical wrap-up. I loved that we got to see Jess's recovery and development after such a traumatic life experience and how Dr. Mayer was involved after his professional duties were over. Highly recommend to fans of suspense or thrillers!
