I was intrigued to find out where Rosie's friendship with Alfie was going and I enjoyed reading about their road trip but the storyline was a slow burner and at times sounded like a tour guide. The reason I have given it just two stars is because I found the ending very disappointing. The writing style seemed to change for the last 6% of the book and it became far fetched and unbelievable almost as if the author was working to a deadline and didn't think the ending through properly.

Why is Rosemary Lomax in the police station? As her story unfolds and we learn the crime of which she is accused, more questions are raised in our minds. Is she a repeat offender? Why do her parents not seem to trust her? Has she recovered? And, most of all, who is the charismatic yet bizarre stranger whom she has befriended as a fellow traveller, and what, if any, is her part in the crime? An engaging read.

A superb second book from this talented writer. She is now on my " one to watch out for " list. I highly recommend this author to anyone who enjoys a gripping thriller. I sincerely hope there is at lot more to come ( and soon ) from Ms Hammersley.

Liked this even more than Heleyne Hammersley's first book 'Forgotten'. Gripping to the last and, again, unputdownable. Looking forward to her third book now.

From the start I was intrigued about Rosie, her parents seem to be happy to send their daughter half way around the world to stay with family. There is obviously something from her past that they want her to get away from in the hope of making a fresh start.

To go to Australia must be an amazing experience in itself and I was very envious when after meeting Alfie, both women decide to go on a road trip.

As soon as Rosie meets Alfie, alarm bells were ringing. She seems to be a bit of a free spirit and from the off it is obvious this girl is trouble. Unfortunately for Rosie she seems to be captivated by Alfie and is quite happy to follow her lead.

The story alternates between Rosie meeting Alfie and events that happen while on their road trip and to present day where Rosie is being interrogated by DS Pete Norton. I was interested to know the reason for why Rosie was being questioned and as to what could have happened that would see her ending up where she was.

Personally for me I found Fracture to be more a story of suspense than a psychological thriller. Even though I enjoyed the story line, I didn’t find it as gripping as I would expect from this sort of genre as again, for me, I found it set at a slower pace and I didn’t feel that urgency of turning the pages that I would usually get. Obviously this is just my personal preference and I would still urge people to give Fracture a shot as it is still an enjoyable read and I would certainly read more by the author.

My thanks to Bloodhound Books for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Format: Paperback
You have been hurt in the past – the scars are there for everyone to see. You are sent away to the other end of the world, to start anew, to build up a life. But can you free yourself from who you are? Are you ever able to put the past to rest? When something happens and the police find you – who would believe you, with your past, to be innocent?

Rosie finds herself in a police station –accused of all sorts of things. She acknowledges a theft – but they keep nagging at her to confess. Confess to what? What is happening? She came from the UK to Sydney, Australia to build a new life, far away from her parents and the terrors of her past.
Her uncle Charlie and his wife Rita welcomed Rosie with open arms, offering her the opportunity to find herself - and a future.
Rosie is twenty-eight years old, but she’s vulnerable and to the reader it seems like she’s only starting to get on her own feet, not having discovered the world before.

When Rosie starts exploring Sydney, she meets a young woman named Alfie. Rose is captivated by Alfie's personality and playfulness as well as her darker side. Rosie senses Alfie, just like herself, also has secrets in the past she wants to keep buried. Rosie is fascinated by Alfie's ability to turn ordinary day-to-day situations into exciting imaginative schemes. The more Rosie enjoys Alfie's company, the more desperate she is to be liked - to be loved. Is it a shock for Rosie to realize she's attracted to Alfie?

The insights into Rosie’s former life don’t provide an explanation for Rosie's current situation, locked up in a police station. Rosie admits to spending money from a man's wallet Alfie had stolen - but the attitude of the police suggests there's something more serious going on.

Rosie travels halfway round the world to escape from - what? We don't know at first, but it doesn't feel like anything good. Then Rosie meets Alfie, and our sense of foreboding grows... Another excellent suspense novel by Heleyne Hammersley.
