Publisher's Summary

A woman trying to rebuild her life.

Kennedy is doing all she can to escape, to prove that she's not the monster her father was. A simple life of peace and service is all she needs.

A man haunted by a past he can't forget.

Cain has buried his demons under layers of control and success. The only thing he needs is his company and his solitude. Certainly not a woman with captivating green eyes filled with ghosts so similar to his own.

He's a reminder of the life she's left behind. And she's a threat to his tightly guarded control. As sparks fly between them, they discover that what they might need most is each other.

But with pasts like theirs...you never know when darkness might descend.

Beautifully broken characters

Catherine again takes broken people and makes them whole in Beautifully Broken Control. I loved the evolution of Cain and Kennedy's relationship. Both characters were wonderfully complex. Another masterpiece added to the Sutter Lake collection. Amazing narration as expected from Maxine and Aaron.

Love this Age-Gap Small-Town Romance

“There’s nothing in this life I’m more grateful for than you.” Review: This is book 4 in the Sutter Lake series. We have gotten glimpses of Cain throughout the other books in the series and he intrigued me. I am so excited to finally have his story and that he gets an HEA too! Kennedy is working hard to make it on her own and make a new life for herself. Cain works hard and is in need of an escape when he gets upsetting news. Kennedy works at The Kettle and has been taken under Jensen's wing. Jensen brings her into the fold and therefore into their family gatherings. Kennedy meets Cain one night at the Cole house. Cain is instantly curious about the girl who evades giving too much away. She sparks his curiousity further and he can't help but look into her further. She draws him in like no one has in years. Only what he finds is not what he expected. These two were both broken and shielding themselves from love and any true connection with another. They were so perfect to help each other and break down those walls. I loved Kennedy's outlook on her new life and even started a Grateful jar of my own. “There was always something to be grateful for. Always.” Cain was so protective of Kennedy and my heart broke for him and the pain he had to endure from his past. I understood why he felt he had to protect the ones he loved. These two were a slow burn, but once the match was lit, they were fire! I loved them! I also loved that we got updates on everyone in the series. This found family is just what each of them needed!

Amazing story that should not be missed!

Catherine Cowles has written another amazing story in the Sutter Lake series! Beautifully Broken Control is the journey of Cain and Kennedy that is beautifully told by Maxine Mitchell and Aaron Shedlock . Cain and Kennedy have tragic events that bring them to Sutter Lake, but their love story includes all of the amazing feels with mystery and suspense as Catherine always includes. You will love this story!

Pleasantly surprised

When I first started listening, I wasn’t sold on the narrators. But as I continued to listen, they couldn’t have been more perfect. Love this series so much!

Oh my goodness! This was the perfect ending to the Sutter Lake Series! Kennedy and Cain’s relationship proved the old adage of “That which does not kill us makes us stronger!” They both suffered heartbreak from their families, albeit in very different circumstances and situations, but were able to overcome their obstacles to get the future they wanted ! Maxine Mitchell and Aaron Shedlock were fantastic narrators! Their performances were spot on! I loved the entire series 🥰😍🤩🥰😍

I didn’t think I could love this story more but Maxine Mitchell narration was perfection as usual. Listening to this book on audible was like reading it for the first time again!
