An excellent murder mystery/ghost story centered around the ruins of a former school for unwanted girls known as Idlewild Hall. The mystery is engaging, moving between the 1950s and the present, and the ghost story has a marvelously creepy urban legend vibe.Highly recommended.

The Broken Girls is set during two timelines, one being set in the 1950s in a boarding school for troubled girls and the other one being set in 2014, where a journalist starts to look into the murder of her sister, whose body has been found 20 years prior on the grounds of the aforementioned boardin...

I loved this book - St. James set this tale in the perfect location, and it is both mysterious and horrifying. It is probably something I would imagine would one day become a film because it is up there with "Kiss the Girls," as far as contemporary suspense goes. The story does flash a bit back to o...

As Fiona investigates the family who’s jus...

The Broken Girls is a book that straddles two timelines. Usually books like this leave me confused at least a time or two but not this one. They’ll often leave me frustrated too because I typically find one timeline far more interesting than the other but that didn’t happen this time around either. ...

After I fell in love with The Haunting of Maddy Clare several years ago, I read all of St. James books. I just love her stories and I was really excited and so looking forward to this! Which is why it really pains me to say The Broken Girls just didn't do very much for me. Maybe my expectations we...
