Broken by Tamar Cohen

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Two couples, both with four-year old daughters, both with marriage problems, both wanting divorces. We follow the relationships between them, the sadness and bitterness, the misunderstandings and manipulation. About a third of the way through the tale things take an ugly turn. This author is very good at revenge, at extreme emotions and betrayal. This is a painful read with a chilling twist.

If you like Tamar Cohen you might also like to read books by Louise Douglas, Amanda Prowse and Jane Fallon.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Broken by Tamar Cohen

Best friends tell you everything; about their kitchen renovation; about their little girl's schooling. How one of them is leaving the other for a younger model. Best friends don't tell lies. They don't take up residence on your couch for weeks. They don't call lawyers. They don't make you choose sides. Best friends don't keep secrets about their past. They don't put you in danger. Best friends don't always stay best friends.


A chillingly real psychological drama that had me in a total reading frenzy. I absolutely loved it. -- Lisa Jewell

Darkly compelling ... a pacy story that kept me turning the pages right until the final, shocking twist.-- Paula Daly

A brilliant and skilfully plotted depiction of the unexpected breakdown of a friendship between two couples, with one of the most chilling twists I've read in a long time. I couldn't put it down. - Louise Millar, author of THE PLAYDATE
