Title: The Broken
Author: Casey Kelleher
Stars: 5 stars
I never read anyone else reviews before writing and posting my own but this time I had to see what others were saying.
This is one heck of a ride that will keep readers hooked and needing more when the story ends.
Case Kelleher takes the story of the Godfather and turns in upside down and backwards in the most unique and captivating way.
I had know idea this was the second in the series but the author catches readers up fast in a way that readers will have no idea there was a book before this one.
The story ends with a cliffhanger and questions that still need answering and this readers needs those answers.
Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for the advance copy.

Keeping her family together all while Joanie, her beloved grandma, falls apart, and her brother Daniel goes off the rails forces Nancy to grow up - fast.
But while Nancy takes the men on at their own game, there’s a greater danger hiding on the dark streets. Jimmy’s killer is on her trail - and will stop at nothing to shut her up.
