Book Description

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 kill herself after fighting a triumphant battle against 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 her, 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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Do No Harm November 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A slow night shift takes a turn for the absolute worst when Paramedic Anneliese Ashmore happens upon the scene of her sister, Sydney's, apparent suicide. Sydney was strong, Sydney was a survivor. Ana knows in her heart that suicide is something her older sister would never contemplate. The crime scene seems perfect, too perfect, and Ana takes it upon herself to work outside the law and do her own investigation. As she delves deeper into the rabbit hole, she'll discover a trail of lies, deceit, and greed. Will she unravel the mystery of her sister's death, or die trying?

Fatal Reaction hits the ground running and doesn’t stop until the very end. Part medical mystery, part thriller, part amateur sleuth novel, it combines several genres and does it well, thanks to Frisch’s fast and succinct, yet descriptive style, and her ability to weave a complex and twisty plot without ever losing the reader. Every chapter has a purpose; every character has their part to play. There is no fat on this book, and it reads in such a way that the short chapters fly by. She makes you want to turn that page, she makes you want to find out the truth behind the mystery, she makes you want to see the characters’ reactions. It’s addictive in the best possible way, and has an almost cozy, small town feel to it that pulls you right into it.

Plot is nothing without well executed and interesting characters, and Fatal Reaction has a great cast. From the heroes to the villains, each person is fleshed out with their own back story, motivations, and voice. Even in scenes where there are many players, Frisch deftly handles them in a concise, natural, and realistic way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enough to scare you away from doctors and hospitals January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Unfaithful spouses, greedy doctors who care more for their professional success than about their patients, and couples desperate to have a baby of their own. Unethical medical procedures, evil practices, and murder disguised as suicide. Although the characters and their actions sound like the Mafia at work, everything takes place in a prestigious hospital by well-known medical professionals. It's enough to make a reader vow never to schedule an appointment with a doctor and never to allow surgery or other serious procedures in a hospital.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic medical thriller December 21, 2013
By Reader
Format:Kindle Edition
this was a fantastic book. A great medical murder mystery full of suspense, thrill and intrigue. Though I think the author gave up the villain too early in the book, it was great to see how things connected. The first three chapters introduced the characters, though a little much don’t let it dissuade you from continuing because slowly everything unfolds. More dead people turn up as others discover and rediscover love. I can’t say more because I don’t want to give away too much but this is a definite must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book December 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful medical thriller. It takes many twists and turns. What I loved most about this book was you didn't know who the killer was until near the end of the book. If you like medical dramas, this is the book for you. If you like crime thrillers, this is the book for you.

Please note that I was given a free copy for this review.
I will be picking up more of Belinda's works.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Medical Drama January 24, 2015
By Mariann
Format:Kindle Edition
The plot is a bit predictable but the story line about uterine transplants is interesting and unexpected. The characters are well defined. It's easy to become involved with their lives. There are a few explicit sex scenes but they're easy to skip over. The book would have been better without these.
