This book had me on page one. Aaron, is fired from his current medical job in Connecticut and goes home to find his wife left him. After these upsetting times he picks himself up and moves to Texas to start a new life and opens a medical practice. His job brings him in contact with many of the townspeople. He soon discovers that these people and the town are not all they seem to be. Are they crazy or is he? Is he going to be before the end? This book really grabbed me. Its written in a very straight forward way that made it easy to follow, but it lacked emotion at times. The story was very good though. Its full of mystery and really keeps you guessing and wanting to know more. While this book had some crazy and wild characters it sent a positive message as well. I really enjoyed it.....Stormi
Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite Fractured Eden by Steven Gossington is a suspense thriller. Dr Roysing has lost everything. Fired from a job he loves, attacked by the father of a patient, he finds himself moving on, having to start his life over again. A small town in East Texas should be the perfect place, but something is wrong. The people of the town are wrong. Abductions, mental illness and addiction haunt the town. Dr Roysing may soon find himself in trouble when a serial killer sets his sights on the doctor as his next victim. How is Aaron Roysing going to get out of this one? Will he live to tell the tale and, if he does, will he still be sane? Fractured Eden by Steven Gossington is great story, packed full of suspense. It isn’t your average suspense thriller though, because Mr Gossington has interwoven elements of the supernatural with a masterful tale of murder, making this an original and thrilling roller coaster of a read. With action on every page, there was always something that kept me reading. It was a case of 'just one more page' which turned into chapters in what I can only describe as an 'unputdownable' book. Mr Gossington has mastered the art of holding a reader’s attention and developing his characters in such a way that you honestly feel like you know them so well. This is a real mix of genres – suspense, thriller, action, romance, mystery, and the supernatural. I think it will appeal to a wide range of readers, particularly anyone who likes a good, strong story with a great plot and plenty of twists. Excellent book, I'm really looking forward to more like this.
