This book is an “adaptation of the hit television show Broadchurch” which I started watching on a friends Netflix account, got hooked (hint: it has David Tennant in it) and then couldn’t watch it for a while. I asked my nephew to find it for me and he did, but due to server issues I wasn’t able to watch it. I requested it from the library which is when I noticed there was a book Broadchurch.

The book follows the story line of the TV series almost exactly. The author fleshes out the characters, lets you know their thoughts and feelings, in a sense, expands on the story. In another review, someone stated this was not her story, I would say her handling of it made it her story. She does an admirable job of keeping the reader engaged.

Who killed Danny Latimer? Alec Hardy, an experienced investigator new to the area suspects everyone. Ellie Miller, who has lived in Broadchurch her whole life can’t believe anyone there could have harmed Danny. The fact that Hardy was given a promotion promised to Miller plus knowing his last case blew up spectacularly, puts the two at odds.

Woven around the mystery is the revealing of peoples secrets, the intrusion of the press and how grief affects people. Hardy and Miller have to keep the peace while trying to solve a crime that seems to putting everyone against their friends. Innocent people are hurt while the guilty one is apparently going free. When the guilty party is finally identified, that puts more shockwaves and rifts through the community.

A very interesting read.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
