    4 eerie, ghostly stars to The Broken Girls! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

    The Broken Girls started off with a bang with a dynamically engaging prologue! Was there a ghost right from the start?

    If you think you do not enjoy ghost stories, I have to say, this one is executed well. Spooky is done with a light hand, not overdone, even feasible if that’s possible for a ghost story?! The atmosphere is perfectly staged with an old school building featuring “tooth-shaped windows.”

    Told in dual story lines, past and present,

    3.5 stars!

    The Broken Girls was a quick, entertaining, fast-paced and atmospheric gothic mystery novel that was an enjoyable and satisfying read. I did enjoy the dual storylines, but I thought that the past timeline was a little more interesting than the present one though.

    I do love a good ghost story and the supernatural and I definitely thought the author delivered a spooky read here, but for some reason when I was reading this novel, I wasn't overly impressed with the author's prose though so

    4.5 stars! I loved the gothic and mysterious feel of this gripping novel!

    From page one, I was drawn into this fascinating story surrounding Idlewild Hall, an old crumbling abandoned girls boarding school. In the 1950’s, an Idlewild Hall student disappeared, leaving for a weekend family visit, never to return. Almost fifty years later, a local girl is left dead in the open field surrounding the abandoned property of Idlewild Hall, the school having closed down decades prior. Add into the story th

    THE BROKEN GIRLS was an amazing book, combining many elements I love: mystery, ghost story, historical fiction, dual time periods, and crime drama. I loved it – yes, it was dark and unsettling, but I was glued to the pages.

    The story alternates between the early 1950s and 2014 in a tiny Vermont town. In the past, four teenage girls attend a local boarding school for troubled girls called Idlewild Hall when one goes missing; in the present, a journalist named Fiona investigates the death of her si

    What a marvelous and unexpected on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of read! Simon St. James's The Broken Girls is set in Barrons, Vermont, during two different time periods and ultimately merging into one storyline.

    1950- In a generation of people affected by the aftermath of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War, there is a boarding school in rural Vermont called Idlewild Hall. This all girls boarding school is home to many of society's "degenerates", trouble-makers, family secrets, and b

    "Mary Hand, Mary Hand, dead and buried under land.... Faster, faster. Don't let her catch you. She'll say she wants to be your friend...."

    What a bloody brilliant story! The Broken Girls by Simone St. James is a creepy, chilling, and BOLD ghost story. Oh my gosh... I absolutely loved how Simone created a mystery within a paranormal/ghost story. I have read previous novels where authors have tried to create a paranormal feel to the mystery/thriller and it failed miserably but wow... I am utterly

    4.5 Stars!!

    “Mary Hand, Mary Hand, dead and buried under land…

    Faster, faster. Don’t let her catch you.

    She’ll say she wants to be your friend…

    Do not let her in again!”

    I’m not usually one for paranormal/ghost stories, but when I read the description for “The Broken Girls” I was really intrigued. I’m thrilled to say that this was even better than I expected.

    I’m weary of thrillers. I’m not a fan of ghost stories. And, bad girls in boarding school has been done to death. Sounds like a recipe for a disappointing read but Broken Girls was a pleasant surprise. The four “bad” girls in 1950 weren’t bad by today’s standards, in fact they weren’t bad at all. Mostly, these girls were shuttled off to a crumbling and severe boarding school to shield their parents from embarrassment and then a student goes missing. Everyone was afraid at Idlewild Hall even the ...more
