Damaged is an intriguing Canadian medical legal thriller that grips the audience from the moment that a horrified Kate feels remorse that she allowed ..Show More »her fears to overwhelm her sense of decency as she knew the grandma made a strong appeal in the interest of her granddaughter. The key to the story line is Kate who is a classic scaredy cat who ends up in "Hell", which could have broken her or given her a backbone of steel. Fans will enjoy a sort of coming of age tale as the women who always chose flight now must choose fight for the first time in her life against a powerful influential opponent.
I thoroughly enjoyed this legal thriller. I have never read a book by the author, Pamela Callow, but am now looking forward to getting the first book..Show More » in the series - Damaged - and also listening to the third book - Tattooed. I wish I had read "Damaged" first so that I would have known the background leading up to this story, however, I enjoyed it anyhow.
I liked the main character, Kate Lange, in addition to all of the characters that the author developed extremely well. I also liked the setting of the story in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
I highly recommend this book. I also enjoyed the narration by Eva Kaminsky. She did an excellent job and I hope that she continues to narrate the series.
I have read her other two books which were pretty good, however, I found this one disappointing. It seemed too "Harlequin" type of a story to me. I ..Show More »also disliked how she talked about her feelings of sadness over the loss of her sister in an automobile accident. She has already revealed and discussed those emotions in the first and second books in the series. Why do we need to read it all over again. We get it!
Now I feel that if I ever purchased a fourth book in the series (and I'm sure she'll write another one), that for sure she'll delve on the past again, and go over the emotions she's feeling about whatever happened in the past AGAIN.
No thank you. This book was not worth a credit to me. It was just too predictable.
The narrator did fine and she'd be perfect for a "Harlequin" novel.
