Exhume (Dr. Schwartzman Series Book 1) by Danielle Girard #NewRelease #Review

Exhume (Dr. Schwartzman Series Book 1) by [Girard, Danielle]About the book:

Dr. Annabelle Schwartzman has finally found a place to belong. As the medical examiner for the San Francisco Police Department, working alongside homicide detective Hal Harris, she uncovers the tales the dead can’t tell about their final moments. It is a job that gives her purpose—and a safe haven from her former life at the hands of an abusive husband. Although it’s been seven years since she escaped that ordeal, she still checks over her shoulder to make sure no one is behind her.

Schwartzman’s latest case is deeply troubling: the victim bears an eerie resemblance to herself. What’s more, a shocking piece of evidence suggests that the killer’s business is far from over—and that Schwartzman may be in danger. In this pulse-pounding thriller from award-winning writer Danielle Girard, a woman must face her worst nightmare to catch a killer.

When does the next one come out????

I love the cover and the synopsis sounded pretty good. Let me tell you! It does NOT do this story justice! I couldn’t imagine going through everything Annabelle does. She is one tough woman!

This book is written so superbly, I had to calm myself and remember it was just a story in a book and the bad guy wasn’t here in my house or out to get me.

If you like psychological suspense novels, you’ll feel at home with this one! My anxiety was ratcheted to the top notch as I was sitting on the edge reading. I feared the characters and felt Annabelle’s angst. Give it a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
