Book Description

From the author of a #1 Amazon Historical Romance Kindle Bestseller, BROKEN LEGACY, comes FRAGMENTED, a suspense thriller that you won't be able to put down!

The first in the Boston's Crimes of Passion Series! A pulse-pounding thriller! Ms Connally's first murder mystery delivers! Suspenseful...shocking...a psychological thriller-- leaving readers on the edge of their seat. Cameron Quinn is caught in a web of deceit. Protecting her brother from being framed for a murder places Cameron in untold danger. When the real killer diverts his attention to her, she has nowhere to turn, especially not to the man she shared one unforgettable night... who now is trying to put her brother in prison. A "must read" for any suspense lover!

She would do anything to protect her family... 
Cameron Quinn watched her father fall into a world of despair after being falsely accused of causing her mother's death. Now, her brother is a suspect in a crime she knows he's not capable of committing. She'll risk everything to save her brother from the same fate as her father, even destroying evidence that implicates him in a series of murders.

He would do anything to win a case... 
ADA Darren Kennedy is known as 'the bulldog.' He doesn't lose. When a killer emerges on the streets of Boston, he's dead-set on putting that killer behind bars...along with anyone that stands in his way.

A killer would do anything to get his heart's desire...
Cameron soon discovers that the police aren't the only ones who suspect her of covering for her brother. The murderer is still out there and he isn't happy his plans have been disrupted. Now, the twisted psychopath has turned his attention towards Cameron and will stop at nothing until he has her in his control.


Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Praise for Fragmented~ 

"Fragmented is a thoroughly engrossing romantic suspense which will have you turning the pages as fast as you can! Author Colleen Connally does a masterful job diving into the demented mind of a serial killer. If you liked Silence of the Lambs, you'll love this story. Highly recommended!" ~ S.G. Rogers

"A gripping, page-turning thriller. You won't be able to stop reading. And you'll sleep with the lights on! Colleen Connally creates evocative words that will send more than chills down your spine. There's also a few scenes that will grip your heart!"~ Elaine Raco Chase

"A fast-paced, sensual romantic suspense with a compelling heroine and a caring, dynamic hero." ~ Lindsay Townsend

"A compelling read that will keep you guessing until the very end. Well done, Ms. Connally!"
~ Mary Campisi

About the Author

I'm a Southern gal that has lived the last thirty years near Boston with my Yankee husband. The funny thing is that as a Southerner I know I'm Southern; he hasn't a clue he's a Yankee. I believe in love and the power it holds. It is the reason I write romances. 

Secret Lives, a historical romance series, is riddled with romantic suspense and a touch of paranormal. Fragmented, Book One of Boston's Crimes of Passion, marks my first contemporary suspense thriller.

I, also, write under the name Jerri Hines. My fascination for history has inspired many of my books including the Winds of Betrayal and Tide of Charleston Series both set during the American Revolution. My latest, Southern Legacy, is a Civil War romance saga. The serial begins with Belle of Charleston and Shadows of Magnolia. Born To Be Brothers will be released May 26...followed this summer by the conclusion, The Sun Will Rise. 

I am a supporter of The Home For Little Wanderers in Boston and the Alzheimer's Association.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner January 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Fragmented. I couldn't put it down. The suspense was really good and kept me guessing. It's creative and different. I loved Darren. I liked Samantha too but I felt there were times when she put herself in jeopardy needlessly. It didn't ruin the story because the fast pacing kept me reading. I loved the whole Boston locale too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling read! January 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first murder caused concern among the public; the second alarm. Brophy, the cop who solves cases but who no one likes, knows the third murder will cause panic. These atrocities have to stop. This story includes a beautiful nurse called Cameron, whose brother Zach is always making trouble for her, especially with her roommate who has problems of his own. Mathew, her former fiancé decides he's made a horrible mistake in ditching her with a bunch of unpaid bills and marrying another. He wants her back. Cameron's best friend Meghan relies on her to continually save her from the sticky situations that she gets herself into. Then there's Darren Kennedy, a handsome ADA who works for the District Attorney's office and who's life shut down after the death of his wife, Sara - Brophy's sister. Until he meets Cameron! Then all hell breaks loose. A thrilling read that'll keep you on your toes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Exciting Romantic Thriller December 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Fragmented is about family, what makes a family and what can destroy it. For some characters in this powerful romantic thriller, families are things that are lost and yearned for. For other characters families are dangerous, especially when a killer decides to target those who threaten a particular family.

Set in modern Boston, written in a crisp, fast-moving style with an engaging, selfless heroine and a hero who comes to understand and appreciate her, filled with hair-raising tension and twists and turns, 'Fragmented' is a read-at-a-sitting novel. I devoured it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Thriller! December 11, 2013
By TC Yip
Format:Kindle Edition
Fragmented is a must-read for anyone and everyone who loves a great "nail biting, can't wait to read what happens next!" suspense thriller. Colleen Connally paints a vivid picture of the smart and sexy Cameron fighting for her family and the brewing romance with the handsome attorney, Kennedy. The unexpected twists in the plot made it hard to put down until the end. Love that the setting takes place in Boston and surrounding area! Completely love the idea that this book is first in a new series and cannot wait to read the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy I Found This Book February 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure wheather or not I would like this book because it seemed more of a suspense than a romance novel. I was pleasently surprised, so much that I couldn't put it down. I told my family that they would have to have takeout because I was to into the story. <g> Read this book you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, page-turning thriller - December 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A gripping, page-turning thriller. You won’t be able to stop reading. And you’ll sleep with the lights on! Colleen Connally creates evocative words that will send more than chills down your spine. There’s also a few scenes that will grip your heart!

Scary thing is...it's cut from today's headlines but Boston Strong is more than a phrase for heroine Cameron Quinn!

(I received an advanced reading copy of this book from the publisher (ARC) - but the opinion is totally my own.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Who is the Fragmented killer? December 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
You'll hold your breath, clench your teeth, feel like running, screaming, yelling at Cameron not to... Colleen Connally knows how to keep you guessing. Fragmented is a great read - if you aren't afraid of the shadows that move. Lock your doors, put bars on your windows, but he'll still be there!
