I want to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity and all views and opinions expressed are my own.
Katie LeClair has finally settled down as the new doctor in Baxter, MI. After years of moving, schooling, and training, she wants nothing more than to find a place she can call home, and a small town outside of Ann Arbor seemed perfect.
Katie quickly gets to work in building a life for herself in Baxter, and beyond reviving her love life, she also finds a pair of business partners in a team of father and son family practitioners. But that idyllic dream is immediately shattered when one of her patients is found dead. That wouldn’t be the worst thing, except the death is ruled a suicide, and as evidence has it, the suicide was a result of the medication Katie had prescribed. But she doesn’t remember writing it.
When a closer investigation reveals it was murder, Katie is catapulted into an off-the-books investigation that leads her down a dark path of past secrets. But someone is willing to kill to keep part of the town’s history in the shadows, and Katie must race to find out who before it’s too late in nationally bestselling author Dawn Eastman’s riveting series debut Unnatural Causes.
I give this book 4 out of 5 Suspenseful Stars! I really enjoyed this story and was completely engrossed by the suspense of this story. The story wasn’t too suspenseful but not too cozy either, it was mostly just right. I really enjoyed Katie’s character and the complexity of her relationship with her brother. I found Katie likable and relatable which was fantastic. The reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because I wish their was some more tension in the story at some points. It’s kind of hard to explain, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this suspenseful novel. The plot was very intriguing and solid. I thought this was a great start to an enthralling series and I am looking forward to the future books in this series!
I hope everyone has a lovely day! Xoxo😗🤗💖📚
