The book, published by Sphere on 20th January tells the story of high-flying Susannah, who on the hottest day of the year finds herself running on autopilot before realising she has made a devastating life changing mistake that is the nightmare of any parent.


In addition to top sales, the novel has received press attention and critical acclaim opening up a conversation on burnout and asking has breaking point become the new normal for so many women.

“This novel about modern motherhood stretched beyond capacity merits bestseller status. And a movie too”

Sunday Independent


“Hugely compelling - I devoured it in a day . . . a compulsive debut that keeps you turning its pages”

Sunday Business Post


Breaking Point has all the hallmarks of a future bestseller. Written in an economical, stripped-back style, it has the pace, setting and glamour of a Hollywood thriller… Coffey gives us an outstandingly good portrait of a woman on trial who discovers too late she is entirely the wrong person to win sympathy from others”

Jane Casey, The Irish Times


Skilfully explores what it means to be a woman trying to juggle it all - and the consequences when tragedy strikes. You won't be able to put this down”

The Gloss


“You won't be able to put this one down”

Stellar Magazine

“This is not only a gripping page-turner and gripping courtroom drama, it also has a lot to say about the expectations and judgement put on women when they become mothers. Prepare to feel devastated and enraged all at once”

Crime Monthly

“A heart-in-mouth type of novel that will have you wonder how you'd react if in similar circumstances”
