Brake Failure by Alison Brodie

10:00 am 0 Comments A+ a-

“Is it too late to tell him you love him when you are looking down the barrel of his gun?” 

An English debutante transforms from Miss-Perfectly-Correct to criminally insane as she breaks the bonds of her rigid upbringing. Sheriff Hank Gephart tries to reel her in - but she’s out of control and she’s not hitting the brakes. 

What happened to the genteel lady in twin-set and pearls? And why did she shoot Mr Right? 

Brake Failure is set in 1999 in the months leading up to Y2K “meltdown” when the US government was spending $150 billion preparing for Armageddon As Lionel Shriver says in her novel, We Have To Talk About Kevin: "1999, a year widely mooted beforehand as the end of the world." 



Hey! Here's my review.

Quirky characters, lots of giggles and racoons in the chimney.

Set in the not too distant past, Ruby learns to let go and party like it was 1999 (because it was). A romantic comedy that begins at the end then put all the pieces together. 
I enjoyed Ruby's story and look forward to reading more from Alison.
