The Disappearance of Catherine Brodie by Grace Harper

My Rating: 4 Stars
Series: Yes. 
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Love, death and destiny.
Catherine Brodie has a happy life in Brighton, she has friends, a secret boyfriend and almost at the end of her law degree. 

However, everything changes when she reaches her twentieth birthday.

She tells a white lie to get out of a family dinner to celebrate her birthday and sneaks off to a party. The repercussions upend her secure and stable life. Two weeks later, she attends the funeral of her brother and parents. Each birthday following sends Catherine into turmoil with more heartache and misery. There are those that wish her harm.

Alexander Devlin was there the night of her birthday and by coincidence, he crosses paths with her every year. Catherine dismisses the coincidence, but her best friend Tara Adkins is convinced fate is throwing them together. 

The first novel of a new quartet that tells the story of Catherine Brodie and her struggle to come to terms with what she did that had far-reaching consequences. It is an epic tale of love, passion, and revenge. 

Devastated with her loss, Catherine carves out a new life and starting her own business. The group of friends she picks up along the way helps her hide from those who wish her harm. It doesn’t take long for her harasser to find her and make her life a misery once more. 

The question is, will Alexander Devlin be there in time to save her? 

My Review

I got this book for an honest review by the author and it was certainly an entertaining one. We get to follow Catherine through her accident filled life and watch as she transforms from daddy's little girl to a totally different kind of animal.

My favourite part of the story was Alex's and Catherine's encounters, like clockwork they met the same day every year, and even if they didn't they were connected somehow. 

This book tells us the story about how a person can get lost in pain and still navigate through life showing people only her outside armour. 

She's trying to find her place in the world, to discover who she really is, and she is not scared to experiment.

She is surviving, only going through the motions and not letting anyone get close enough, but as times goes by she is actually thinking she is close to having a break, but apparently life has other plans for her.

I can't wait to read about the next part of the story, the cliffhanger left me hungry for more!
