Fatal Reaction by Belinda Frisch

About the book


During a slow night on duty, paramedic Ana Ashmore drives past a crime scene at the shabby Aquarian Motel—a scene that, strangely, wasn’t broadcast on her first-responder’s radio. Curious, she stops to help and quickly realizes why she’d been excluded from the call. Her sister, Sydney, has been found dead of an apparent suicide. But why would Sydney take her own life right after her successful battle with cancer?
As the police get to work, Ana decides to launch an investigation of her own. Sydney’s soon-to-be ex-husband certainly had a motive to murder, and while the police focus on him, Ana makes a startling discovery: a chain of e-mails between Sydney and her surgeon that brings into question Sydney’s diagnosis and the life-altering treatment that followed. With the help of Dr. Jared Monroe, who has his own troubling connection to the surgeon in question, Ana uncovers a ring of corruption and greed. As the two dig deeper, they develop a complicated attraction. Can they survive their attempt to expose a dangerous deception and avenge Sydney’s murder?
YES, Yes, yes, do read this book. 
My two cents.
I was impressed with this book.  The character list never assumed I am dumb and could lose the thread due to more than two people in the cast.
The pace was fast and relentless always driving forward. 
The story was fun, entertaining. 
I wont go so far as to say I could not put the book down but I came pretty close to it.
So if a medical mystery thriller is your cuppa, then I recommend this book.  It is well written, well edited and in the end it did what I want from a book.  It gave me the escape from every day life I crave when I pick up a book.
Really, what more do you want from fiction?

  1. I will have to check that book out. I actually have both of her books Cure and Dead Spell. Thanks for reading a book by this author because it got me to search for her books and they will be a perfect October Read. Great review.
