Fall to Pieces

by Becky Flade


GENRE: Romantic Suspense



Detective Alexandra Danvers is determined to bring child killer, Arthur Book, to justice, no matter the cost. Detective Xavier Knight is asked to evaluate Lexi’s fitness for duty. He fears investigating Lexi could allow a monster to walk free. Holding onto their own secrets, they launch a covert investigation into Arthur Book who could cost Lexi and Xavier their careers, including their lives.



Check out Becky’s Book Trailer for her new book, “Fall to Pieces,” below:



As if this family hasn’t suffered enough. Please don’t be her little boy. Please, God, I don’t ask for much. Ever. Please don’t let this be her little boy. “Do you have a recent picture of Tommy? Maybe on your phone?”

She fumbled for her phone, unlocked it, and passed it to Lexi, her hands shaking. It looked like it was taken earlier that day before the boys left for the park. God hadn’t been listening. Tommy Welsh, alive, in his plaid shorts, short spikey hair, freckles on his nose, and missing his two front teeth, stood beside his older brother, perhaps twelve, wearing basketball shorts and a tee-shirt, and entering the awkward phase between childhood and puberty. But the resemblance between the two boys was unmistakable. As was the love they shared.

Lexi showed the picture to Xavier and nodded to the EMTs. Recognized the flash of understanding and sadness in their eyes as acknowledgement. The sorrow and the weight of Monica Welsh’s grief could bury Lexi if she let it. Lexi took a deep breath, welcomed the muggy air of August. Her emotions served no purpose. Would only be a selfish indulgence. What this woman needed; Lexi could never provide.

“Monica, it is with the deepest regret that I must inform you…”



I seriously could not put this book down nor did I want to!!!

Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of reading and reviewing four of Becky Flade’s books, which compromised of her entire book series, “The Fated Series.”  I have loved every single one, each for a different reason, but they all have been exemplary and satisfying reads!!  So, when I saw she had a new book out, I jumped at the chance of getting dibs on her new book – and just as I expected, it was another homerun!!

This book follows the main character, Lexi, who is deeply hurting and still grieving over the loss of her husband, Robert, to suicide.  Lexi is a police detective in Philadelphia and although her solve rate is higher than most, her jacket full of citations and very few complaints, she has a problem with authority – and that is more than equally documented in her file.  While Lexi is still clearly circling through the five stages of grief, her behavior at times becomes a bit erratic, and it is brought to the attention that she may be a danger to herself or others.  Therefore, an undercover officer is placed as her new partner to investigate her abilities and determine if she is truly capable of being on active duty.

This book also follows the main character, Xavier, a loner-type who is a no-strings, no commitment, jumps from city to city, with no attachments and no worries.  Philadelphia is just another pit stop on his journey, and he has no plans of sticking around or getting attached to anything or anyone.  His latest assignment has him partnering up with Lexi, but what she doesn’t know that he’s also assessing her ability to do her job and keep her emotions in check.  While this seems like just another post for Xavier, another day sussing out the good cops from the ones that need to be removed either from being corrupt or not fit for duty, Lexi and Xavier’s very first case takes them to a profoundly sad scene – the murder of a young child.  How can anyone be expected to be able to hide their emotions over such a tragedy?!

One of the things I have always loved about Flade’s writing, which is also present in this book, is her vivid imagery details.  Flade’s writing style completely immerses you into her storytelling and keeps you hanging on every word.  I feel like when I read her books, I’m not just reading them, I can easily see them playing out in my head – like a mini-movie feature.  And I imagine that if Flade ever did turn these books into movies, my version and her version would be spot on.

I also love that this book is truly character driven!!  These characters are relatable, likable, and genuine!!  Flade writes characters that are strongly developed and play well off each other.  She uses the precise amount of wit, tension, chemistry, and empathy to create the perfect character interactions, connections, and relationships.

This book is full of strong, deep emotional elements that are sure to take the reader on an emotional rollercoaster ride!!  As this book delves into many sensitive issues, fair warning, you may want to keep a box of Kleenex tissues nearby.

Like with Flade’s other books, I also enjoyed how many book genres she was able to cross into this intriguing read!!  While I feel this book’s key highlights are mainly the romance and the psychological realism, followed by, then of course the mystery, suspense, and thriller trio that tie into the murder investigation.  This book certainly has a lot to offer a reader that is looking for a creative, complex, and engaging read!!

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!!  I think all romantic, suspense readers will like this book too!!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!!

P.S. ~ I also loved the dedication!!  It was very sweet, and totally brought a big smile!!
