Heartbroken by Lisa Unger Review

By Lisa Unger

Emily is stuck in a dead end job with a fiancé who will do anything for a fix. Kate has two beautiful children and has finally found a husband who is perfect for her and is about to release her first novel using her grandmothers and aunts journals for inspiration. Birdie is a cold woman set in her ways the only thing that ever makes her happy is being on her island on a lake in the Adirondacks that her family has owned for generations. These three women mingle in an intertwining story that will lead each of them to a fight for their very lives.

I think that if the characters had been more relatable this novel would have been brilliant but as the novel is written you have Birdie who is rich and snooty, her daughter Kate who is a perpetual pushover who just now comes out of her shell, then Emily who is young and in love with a drug addict and has perpetually helped him with schemes to swindle people. I found no way to relate to any of these characters so as I am reading it I am not fully drawn into the story. Towards the end the novel does pick up with amazing scenes full of action and suspense it is just getting to this part that is a bit slow.
