9781492637363: A Deadly Affection (Dr. Genevieve Summerford Mystery)

A ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Award and the Next Generation Indie Book Award for Best Mystery

Shortlisted for the Strand Critics Award for Best Debut Mystery Novel

"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.

About the Author:

Cuyler Overholt worked as a litigation attorney and freelance business writer before turning to fiction. A Deadly Affection, her first novel, received ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Award and the Next Generation Indie Book Award for best mystery. The author's interest in old New York was sparked by the reminiscences of her grandmother, whose life spanned over a century of the city's history. She lives with her husband, a psychologist, in the hills of Northwestern Connecticut, where she is working on her second novel.

Review:

"this superb debut reflects the author's impeccable research with its portrait of turn-of-the-century New York City. Discussion questions at the end focusing on women's rights make this a solid book club choice.
" - Library Journal, Starred Review

"A well-paced, 20th-century whodunit full of dark secrets and fascinating intrigue." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"intriguing first novel...[a] richly detailed whodunit populated with believable characters. 
" - Publishers Weekly

"Backed by meticulous research and presented with acute attention to detail, the novel ... shines like a star in a highly competitive genre ... Even a seasoned reader of murder mysteries will be surprised at the number of false conclusions one can reach when [reading] Overholt's debut novel." - ForeWord Clarion Review, 5 Stars

"I had to put my life on hold until I'd finished it. What a satisfying finish...and what a smooth, complex, enlightening, riveting journey. A Deadly Affection is masterfully crafted, a delightful combination of suspense and romance. I cannot wait for Overholt's next novel." - Historical Novels Review

"Rich with historical detail, Overholt brings turn-of-the-century New York to vibrant and gritty life. Readers will become immersed in the plight of her psychiatrist heroine and eagerly follow her through the twists and turns of the human mind." - Anna Lee Huber, national bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries

"Genevieve Summerford is a heroine with brains, compassion, and grit. A psychiatrist during a time women were supposed to be wives and mothers, she not only practices medicine, but also protects secrets, and solves murders. A riveting period puzzler, filled with history, mystery, and romance." - Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author of the Maggie Hope series

"The characters are well-written, as is the mystery component, and the author also adds some fascinating elements, including psychological and sociological conflicts. " - RT Book Reviews

"Overholt's story is a winning combination of intrigue and romance." - BookPage
