Rating: 3.5 / 5
THE PHOTOGRAPHER begins with photographer Delta working a birthday party for a young girl. She’s captivated by the family and by the young girl’s mother. Soon she is finding ways to befriend the daughter and parents alike, stepping in as emergency babysitter and all around family friend. The family doesn’t really know the true Delta and they certainly don’t know the lengths she will go to to cement her place in their lives.
This is a book where I think going in blind is a big help! Getting inside Delta’s mind is a wild ride as she finds ways to spin a story that even she almost believes about her own life. This isn’t a book that is big on plot twists, but the wild extremes that Delta will go to kept me hooked to the story and needing to know what would happen next.
I think this is a book that lends itself well to audio since we’re getting so much of the story from Delta’s thoughts and the audiobook made for a great read! I was really hooked right up to the end needing to know how this would all turn out!
I will be looking to pick up more from this author in the future! THE PHOTOGRAPHER is out today!
