[Review] The Body Reader – Anne Frasier

This digital copy of The Body Reader by Anna Frasier was courtesy of NetGalley. Stars: 4/5 tl;dr: Fast paced, compelling psychological thriller. This was pretty damn hard to put down. Detective Jude Fontaine escaped a 3-year captivity after overpowering her captor and making a run for it. But she was not the same person anymore. Everything about her and her life before she was kidnapped has changed – she was

[Review] The Escape of Princess Madeline – Kristin Pulioff
