Review - All Of Us Are Broken by Fiona Cummins

All Of Us Are Broken by Fiona Cummins
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Release date: 20 July 2023
Back cover blurb: The Family. After a year they want to forget, the Hardwicke family set out to the Scottish Highlands for a much needed holiday. The Crimes. They are about to cross paths with a violent and dangerous young couple hell-bent on infamy, their love story etched in blood and a dark past which must be uncovered. The Detective. As the clock ticks down, Detective Saul Anguish is on the hunt to find the couple before more lives are lost. The Mother – who will be forced to make an impossible decision.

All Of Us Are Broken. 

This is a fact. 

We are all humans, and human beings are incredibly flawed, but some are more flawed than others...

This brilliant novel opens with a terrifying hostage situation in a remote but idyllic Scottish resort. Christine Hardwicke is being forced to chose between her beloved Children, Galen and Tom in a situation no parent ever wants to find themselves in. 

Missy and Fox want infamy. They are violent and dangerous, and want to be remembered for all of the wrong reasons.

It is a classic case of wrong place, wrong time for the Hardwicke's. 

After a harrowing year, they just wanted a break, and came up to Scotland for a holiday and to see the Dolphins at Chanonry point. But Missy and Fox are not interested in their reasons for interrupting their evening.

They just want them to pay for it.

All Of Us Are Broken is a dark, twisty, face paced rollercoaster ride of a novel. I can't say too much more as I don't want to spoil anything if you haven't yet had the pleasure of reading! 

There are times during this novel when you might want the pace to ease up a little so you can catch your breath. But the relentless pace is 100% worth it.

All Of Us Are Broken is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
