Review: Tiffany King hits another one out of the park with this emotional read!!
Book two in the Fractured Lives series, A Shattered Heart is Kat’s story. The series revolves around a group of life-long friends who were involved in a terrible car accident on the night of their high school graduation. Not all of them survived. The series deals with each of the survivors and their guilt and suffering after the accident. Book one was Mac’s story. Now it’s Kat’s turn.
This was such an emotional read touching on survivor’s guilt and remorse. The characters are so realistic. Tiffany King writes unapologetically. Her characters are flawed and their trauma is real. There are no easy answers which to the problems Kat faces and Tiffany King doesn’t write an easy resolution.
This is a fabulous series and book two is another home run.
Each novel can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend starting with book one because the characters are so interconnected.
