Publisher's Summary

Those trained to save lives might be the most skilled at taking them.

Paramedic Anneliese Ashmore's routine shift takes a startling turn when she answers the call she was never meant to hear - a call to a crime scene where her sister, Sydney, is the victim of an apparent overdose suicide.

The evidence says otherwise.

In the midst of a heated divorce, motive implicates Sydney's soon-to-be ex-husband. While the police focus on the single lead, Ana makes her own discovery.

A chain of emails between Sydney and her surgeon's office sets Ana on a search for answers about her sister's recent diagnosis and the life-altering treatment that saved her. The body count rises as Ana closes in on the truth and on the man of her dreams.

With the help of Dr. Jared Monroe, an unhappily married physician with a bit of a crush, Ana uncovers a ring of greed and corruption and exposes the fact that Sydney's medical treatment may have been the catalyst for her murder.

Unfortunately for Ana, she may be next.

Reminded me of a soap opera

This reminded me of General Hospital. Several characters from different walks of life all entangled in a medical drama. The plot is entertaining and filled with twists and turns just like daytime soaps. The plot is advanced by introducing a new chapter. Almost like the abrupt scene changes on a soap. All in all it was a good story and I might read the next in this series.

Bad Noreen!

This is a worthwhile medical/detective thriller that could possibly classified as "chick lit". There is not a lot of mystery involved but it is a well written novel that flows well. Noreen is evil!

Can't wait for the next book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Fatal Reaction to be better than the print version?

I only listen instead of read so this was perfect for me.

Lots of twists and turns. A true mystery.

Interesting medical thriller

This book was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.
This is a medical thriller.
I found that although it was a good story with an interesting plot that the scenes were too short to actually allow me to get to know the different characters. The result was that I had to stop and think who the person was as he or she was re-introduced to the story and this spoilt it for me.
Besides this I found the whole concept very interesting - a bit more spit and polish in the editing department would have made this a great book.
I had no problem with the narration. It was well read.

Great book, kept me hooked the entire time

What did you love best about Fatal Reaction?

I enjoyed the plot that kept me guessing and moving throughout the book. At about 1/2 into the book I figured out who the "bad guy" was; but I still wanted to keep reading.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was easy to follow, and seemed to be true to real life.

What does Julia Farmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love her ability to switch her voice to the different characters. She has a great acting ability and it was definitely displayed in this reading.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no extreme reaction, it just had me gripped.

Fatal Reaction

This book was great! I loved Julia Farmer interpretation of the book. She did well with just a slight change in her voice and you could tell who she was reading for with each character.
I work in the health field so the authors knowledge was great on this topic as well. I think she has done her research. The book was a great mystery and I enjoyed the story line and I would read/listen to more books from both Belinda Frisch and more narrated by Julia Farmer. I have listened to a few other books but I was very impressed by this one. I can't wait for book 2!

Too many characters but good

I enjoyed this book it was more of a medical thriller. Only complaint there was many characters you really have to pay attention too so you remember them when bought back into the story. I look forward to book 2.This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast. Thank you

The plot of this book is good so many lives intertwined. This did remind me of a soap opera. I liked the fact not much along the lines of

graffic sex. I've never thought of uterine transplant,I had to check and see if it had been done. I was surprised a successful birth from the

procedure occurred in Sweden more than a year ago and clinical trials are beginning in the US.


The narration was very good.

Awesome Mystery

This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost to me in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.
This book kept me hooked from the beginning to the end. I really enjoyed the main character and her strength. Awesome mystery and suspense. Could not put it down...I Listened to it in one sitting. My only complaint was with the narrator. She was good...but very hard at times to differentiate between characters. Over all...very pleased though. :) Highly recommend this book!

A great listen and well written story that kept me hooked. The narrator was excellent and really brought the story to life. I don’t usually listen to books in this category, but will be looking for more from this author in the future.
