We’ve all heard about the importance of quality book covers, and if I’m honest about my own book buying habits, I have to agree. I browse the covers. If I like a cover, I read the blurb. If I like the blurb, I read the first few pages. From there it lands in my shopping cart. A treat for me!

Fatal Reaction by Belinda Frisch

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!  “This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com.”  5/5
