My favorite of this series!
Definitely my favorite of this series. I loved the connection between Tuck and Jensen. Their chemistry is sizzling hot and forbidden. I’ve been wanting their story and it doesn’t disappoint. Loved it!
Heartwarming and poignant
A girl, a boy who happens to be her brother’s best friend and an adorable little boy...and wild horses. Let me tell you wild horses couldn’t pull me away from this story. It was poignant, heart piercing and phenomenal.
Tuck and Jensen have been friends and confidants their whole lives. They share a special bond. They also share a love of wild horses and being with each other.
This is a deep, thoughtful book about love, loss, family and human flaws. It is flawlessly executed and has some threads of suspense perfectly woven through the storyline . It is my first read by this author and it will not be my last. I now have another favorite author to add to my list.

Highly anticipated story for Jensen and Tuck!
By Samantha B. Sokol
Highly anticipated story for Jensen and Tuck! After meeting both of these characters in the first book in the series, I could not WAIT to get their stories and was even more excited in finding out it was one in the same! Unknowingly playing a role in the attempted murder of her brother and his girlfriend, Jensen has become reserved and untrusting of herself. In love with her brother’s best friend her entire life; while she couldn’t be with him romantically, they developed their own close friendship. Tuck has been in love with Jensen for as long as he can remember, with her being the one to keep his only secrets regarding his family life, and when he sees her withdrawing decides to take action. But after years of bubbling up, the chemistry and feelings hit a point and everything comes to the surface with these two. While keeping things under wraps, they also find themselves deep into the shootings of horses, which are near and dear to Jensen’s heart, and when the shooter sets their eyes on Jensen for getting involved, Tuck will stop at nothing to ensure her safety. I for one was shocked at who the shooter was, especially as we got to meet the people in town throughout the course of the book. This was such an explosive read and I was so happy to find these two together! Not only the plot and storyline, but also Catherine’s style of writing and attention to detail really makes this book for the reader! I can’t wait to see who is next in this series, but I’m positive that she won’t disappoint!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Wonderfully written entry in the Sutter Lake series ... best story yet (which is saying a LOT)
Beautifully Broken Spirit (BBS) is something you need to download now!
It's a terrific standalone entry in the Sutter Lake series that is chock-full of familiar character friends wrapped in a suspenseful story that sizzles.
The characters, Tuck and Jensen, are ones we met in previous books. Tuck has been Jensen's friend for a long time. She's made lemonade out of lemon and is far richer for it. Tuck has always been around ... but now he's AROUND. SAs she grapples with newfound feelings ... or are they feelings that have always been suppressed ... a dark shadow moves over Sutter Lake.
Ms. Cowels' writing is even better than the previous books ... and that is saying a lot! BBS is a complex story that will pull you in! ...and this book should come with a warning. My housework has suffered as I've been on the couch with a "cold" binge reading!
Download this now! If you're not a Catherine Cowels fan, you can start with this one, but you'll want to re-read the others in the series.
I received an ARC. This is my honest review.
Best romantic suspense
By Crystal 💜📚
Absolutely blown away!!! Tuck and Jensen.... I knew from the moment I read Beautifully Broken Pieces that I wanted Jensen and Tuck’s story, yet I can’t believe what I just read. The author has a serious way with words that just flow.
This beautiful story needs to be rated over 5 stars. One of the best books I have read in 2019 that is for sure. Character development is spot on. Plot just flows and it keeps you turning the page. The detail throughout the book is simply amazing. You feel as if you are on that boulder with Jensen and her mustangs! Beautifully Broken Spirit, just like the rest of the books from the Sutter Lake Series, has an element of suspense. Catherine Cowles seriously nails romantic suspense!!
I am not sure what else I can say, this is one that will be reread very soon!
So much Chemistry!
By Lacie Romano
This story had so much chemistry in it! These two characters both broke my heart yet set it on fire throughout the whole book! was so drawn into this story since the previous books in the series and the build-up did not disappoint at all! This book had me in tears and yet it was gorgeous and beautiful. As always, the side characters were awesome in this book as well. I seriously can't wait for the next one! A must-read whether you have read the series or not!
My favorite so far!
Wow, Wow, Wow!!! Every time I think I find THE book by Ms. Cowles I'm wrong. Because each book I pick up just gets better and better. And I have to say in this case, I've been waiting for Tucker and Jensen's book. There has just been something about these two from the very beginning that I fell in love with. And I have to say, I've had top book boyfriends before and Tucker, he's right up there. He is everything and then some. But most of the time, the ones who think they are "damaged" turn out to be the ones that love the most and the deepest and honestly, have the heart of gold. Tuck is no different. This man, just he is EVERYTHING. I think I could go on about him for days and not get tired of it. And then Jensen... this girl has been through hell and back. And she has kept on trucking. Some days are not easy, but Tuck is always there to pick her up when needed. Jensen is one tough cookie and one I know I'd be good friends with if I could just figure out how to jump into this book and this series. Because I just really want to go to Sutter Lake. I'm in love with this town, these characters, and the words that Ms. Cowles writes. I don't think I will ever get enough. And I can't wait for the next read by her. Because I know it's going to be everything and then some... Just like Austin and Carter, Walker and Taylor, Liam and Tessa, and of course my new favorite book best friend and boyfriend Tuck and Jensen. Seriously, I love these two. One click today for an amazing read!!
I’ve been wanting to read Jensen and Tuck’s story from the first book and Catherine didn’t disappoint.
Beautiful friends to lovers book. Slow building and lots of suspense. I was rooting for Jensen and Tuck so hard. I wanted, no..I needed them to have their HEA.
“It all came down to trust. A five-letter word that was so incredibly fragile. With others, but even more with yourself.”
Jensen Cole didn’t trust. Not herself and she didn’t trust herself in a relationship.
Not after past mistakes. She couldn’t forgive herself. And it was killing her.
Tucker Harris didn’t do relationships. But Jensen was always his more. But she’s his best friend’s little sister and he’s afraid to go there because he’s not good enough for her.
This book is so beautiful. So many emotions while reading. Catherine Cowles is a queen of small town romances. Her writing style is one of my favorites and you could feel the emotions coming from the pages.
“Tucker Harris, I’ve loved you since before I knew what the word even meant. “
If you love small town romance, protective alpha males and suspense, you have to read this series.
My Rating: 5 STARS!
Another beautiful Sutter Lake book
Catherine Cowles is a master of romantic suspense and Beautifully Broken Spirit is yet another example of why this author is one of my automatic one-click authors. The story grabs you and pulls you into the lives of Jensen and Tuck in a love story that is heartwarming, steamy and so honestly written. There were moments I held my breath and didn’t want the story to end while at the same time I raced to the finish because I couldn’t put the book down. Brilliantly woven into their story is the perfect amount of suspense that holds you captivated until the very end. I wish there were more than five stars because I want to give so many more.
