A Deadly Affection
A Deadly Affection | Cuyler Overholt
22 posts | 14 read | 29 to read
"Do no harm" is easier said than done... Dr. Genevieve Summerford prides herself on her ability as a psychiatrist to understand the inner workings of the human mind. But when one of her patients is arrested for murder-a murder Genevieve fears she may have unwittingly provoked-she begins to doubt her training and intuition. Unable to believe that her patient could have committed the gruesome crime, Genevieve seeks out answers, desperate to clear the woman's name-and her own. Over the course of her investigation, Genevieve uncovers a dark secret-one that could, should Genevieve choose to reveal it, bring down catastrophe on those she cares most about. But, should she let it lie, it will almost certainly send her patient to the electric chair. Steeped in the gritty atmosphere of turn-of-the-century New York City, A Deadly Affection is a riveting debut mystery and the first in an exciting new series featuring Dr. Genevieve Summerford.

I‘ve been listening to this book and I just got to a part that makes me want to sit in my car, never mind that it‘s below freezing outside.

I went with my family to see Bentleyville tonight. This is my nephew being silly inside a huge ornament of lights.

This was Book #38—an ARC I picked up a couple of years ago at BEA—in my quest to read down my TBR pile by 50 books. Set in 1907 New York, it‘s the story of Dr. Genevieve Summerford, a newly minted doctor (psychiatrist to be exact). One of her patients is accused of murder. Was it Summerford‘s advice? Is the woman actually the perpetrator? A dash of mystery, an old flame, NYC in the early 1900s & you have a fun story. Good but not great.

Book one of 2018 complete! Enjoyed it not just for the who done it, but also for the psychological mystery. First time using the Libby app. Loved it. Perfect for vacation!

Ok, gotta buckle down now. I‘m leading a discussion on this book on Wednesday, meaning I really should finish it. I‘ve enjoyed the few chapters I‘ve read so far!

I promise, I wanted to like this book. I tried, I got halfway through, and realized I didn't like any of the characters, and didn't really care if they solved their problems or not. Which is a pity, because it had so much potential!

Enjoyable mystery set during the Progressive Era in NYC. A young female doctor has just started a psycho-therapy practice when one of her patients is accused of murder.

An #engaging read for those who like #murder #mystery. I like the old #NewYork setting. Dr. Genevieve Summerford specialized in #psychotherapy and she is determined to prove her patient's innocence who is accused of murder. #historicalfiction #pageturner #greatread

A cozy day: coffee in a thick diner mug, pumpkin biscotti, and a cozy mystery. #perfection Truly life is perfect at this moment. (Also the cat is asleep on Mr JSW-who is also asleep- and so the house is quiet and my lap is my own!) #BLISS

This, exactly. Trained as a counselor, I can tell you.... everyone wants to know you understand, really understand, their pain. This book is promising.

One of my highly anticipated fall releases! 🙆🏻 This is about Dr. Genevieve Summerford, a psychiatrist whose patient is arrested for murder in 1907. She doubts her skill as a clinician and is confronted with a secret about this patient.
It sounds like EVERYTHING I love: women in the mental health field 💜, mystery 🕵🏻‍♀️, and morally grey 🤔 ethical issues. This is another book in my September Book Haul video 📚📽 which is on my channel now! 💕

read_diverse_books Sounds great! Off to watch your book haul video. 😄 3y

A historical fiction mystery set in 1907 NYC with a spunky young female psychologist out to find a murderer. An impressive debut that had many red herrings. 4/5 STARS

Liberty I recently read a book with this very same cover! 3y
BethFishReads Sounds good ! 3y
Bakingbookworm @Liberty I noticed the same thing (Sawbones was really good!). I let the publisher know in my review on NetGalley. I assume it will be/has been fixed for the final copy. 3y

annahenke It's probably a stock photo. Free for publishers to use. My company does this sometimes for low budget books. @Liberty @Bakingbookworm 3y
Bakingbookworm @ahenke Thats what I figured. You'd think they'd use a different one though since Sawbones was just out last year. 3y
annahenke Yeah, it's definitely unfortunate timing. 3y

Reading an advance copy is never about the pretty cover, or the fancy type. It's the joy of reading a book before anyone else. Lol. #mystery #historical #advancecopy #arcaugust
