Tom, Rachel, and their daughter Holly have been through some tough times. First, their son, Michael, was killed in a joyriding accident, then they were attacked and mugged leaving Holly badly scarred. Seeking an opportunity to reconnect and attempt to put their family back together, they go to stay in a secluded lodge in Scotland. But, once they’re all settled in bed, they hear the sound of glass breaking and are launched into a night of absolute terror.
This book was full of tension and excitement, in the perfect remote setting for a truly terrifying plot to unfold. It’s a gripping read, which I would not recommend reading at bedtime.
I loved the concept of a novel following a home invasion. It was exciting, scary and really gets you thinking: What would you do? However, I personally think this book would have been much better if it was based on a random break-in. Instead, there’s a whole load of background and sub-plot which I found a little bit ridiculous and didn’t really care about.
A Window Breaks was mostly a very good, exciting book, but was let down by the over complicated and far-fetched subplot.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
