    This is the fourth book in the Dr Schwartzman series Since it is obvious from the beginning that the previous book in this series ended on a cliffhanger, it would probably be best if this series was read in order I found it hard to get into and was doing quite a bit of skimming to see if I could figure out what was going on I really needed that three book backstory for this to make any sort of sense for me.The book starts off with Annabelle Schwartzman, San Francisco s medical examiner has been kidnapped by someone whom she thinks initially is her ex husband then believes to be her morgue assistant Roy Inspector Hal Harris gets involved from the beginning He found some pregnancy tests in her bathroom showing a positive result So he is even focused on finding her alive He wants her and her unborn baby to be safe.Annabelle is being held in some sort of cabin and it must be winter since it was snowing and she was saving snow to melt for drinking water since every kind of food or water was being drugged How much would a set up like that cost to maintain, jeez Just the drugs alone would have been costly Even the shower was laced with ...

    I loved the first three books in this series, but this one fell flat Anna Schwartzman is a medical examiner in San Francisco, and the crimes she helped solve in the three earlier books were compelling and kept me interested The additional storyline of her abusive ex husband pursuing her allowed for great character development for Anna and her friend turned lover Hal Harris, a detective with SFPD I loved all three books, and, when the third one ended on a cliffhanger, I couldn t wait to get my hands on book 4.But this one doesn t live up to the first three First of all, there is only one storyline here Anna has been kidnapped and Hal is trying to find her I missed the crime solving aspect of the first three books I liked watching Anna and Hal work together, and that element is completely missing from this book.Second, there are a bunch of threads to this story that make no sense whatsoever Who is Caleb What insider trading scheme Why is Anna s mom suddenly a completely different person than the character we ve met before Either leave that stuff out of the story or explain its connection to Anna and Hal better As it is, it s just a distraction I even flipped back through the book to try to fi...

    From the first page, Ms Girard had me engaged on the edge of my seat I wasn t able to put this story down until I was finished Hal Annabelle s torment engaged my sympathies from the beginning The characters were well defined realistic The plot was fast paced believable This is the first in this series I ve read I didn t feel lost or confused in the slightest There is enough background given via flashbacks or memories to fill the reader in on past events I m intrigued enough...

    Oh my god What a book 4 I got this early in return for my honest opinion I decided to reread the first 3 books prior to reading this 4th book, so the storyline would be completely fresh in my mind I m so glad I did, as my bond with all the characters in the books was able to grow and be stronger than ever for this one The author gives us complete closure and ties all the loose ends up in a nice big bow We as readers have a lot of moments that we are on the edge of our seats asking if things ...

    A Fast Paced Thriller That Immediately Captured My Attention And DeliveredExpire opened with Spencer MacDonald doing what he likes best, killing someone Spencer is Annabelle Schwartzman s ex husband and has stalked her and attempted to kill her through the first three novels Then, this novel takes off where the previous novel, Expose, left off Anna finds herself a captive in a snowbound cabin, with a tight collar secured to a cable, and all liquids appear to be drugged She suspects that she is pregnant and fears for the life of the child she may be carrying She fights not to be drugged and find a way to escape.The other main storyline thread is led by Hal Harris, an Inspector in the San Francisco Police who works regularly with Anna He saw the results the home pregnancy tests that Anna took but did not see the results before her abduction Hal was fairly sure that Anna was carrying his child From this point, he has only one mission in life rescuing Anna He seems frustrated at every turn He takes vacation time to travel to San Antonio where currently Spencer was meeting with an investor He works with an FBI Special Agent that looked like he is a 12 year old whose ways are methodical and too slow for Hal Anna s mother, who still is close with Spencer, believes that he can do no wrong.These two threads are fast pac...

    Danielle Girard s previous book in the Dr Schwartzman series, Expose, ended in an explosive cliff hanger So if you haven t read Expose, stop right here and read it, because it is significant in getting a better appreciation of Expire With that being said, the ending of Expose left us with the knowledge that medical examiner Annabelle Schwartzman has been kidnapped with the assumption that her psychopathic ex husband, Spencer MacDonald, is the kidnapper Schwartzman s love interest, detective Hal Harris, assumes that as well, and is hell bent on getting MacDonald to lead him to where he is hiding her But MacDonald is a master of deceit and puts up roadblocks for every step that Harris takes.The theme throughout the series has revolved around Schwartzman s dysfunctional relationship with her abusive ex husband, Spencer, and trying to convince everyone around her that Spencer is psychopathic and dangerous It has been difficult for her, as Spencer is wealthy, outwardly charming, and has an outstanding reputation among those that know him Even Schwartzman s mother sees Spencer in a positive light and believes that her daughter is making mountains out of mole hills when it comes to dealing with her ex husband The one person that does believe her is homicide detective Hal Harris whose relationship with Schwartzman has been developing throughout the series and finally comes to fruition at the ending of Expose Harris, who is ve...

    I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.At the close of the last book of the series, San Francisco Medical Examiner, Dr Annabelle Schwartzman was drugged and tossed into the back of a non descript white van, while rendering aid to her neighbor Now, she s awake and has found herself tethered by a plastic collar and chain in a home that appears to be in a remote location Although she has long escaped an abusive marriage and gone forward with her life, she has always known that she would encounter her ex husband again, and presumes he is the one who has taken her.Hal Harris, San Francisco homicide cop and Anna s lover meanwhile, is searching frantically He too believes that Spencer is responsible for Anna s kidnapping but how can he be, when he s hundreds of miles away, and meeting with his clients daily As Anna explores her prison, hoping to find some way out of her predicament, Spencer is plotting His ultimate plan is so smuggle Anna out of the country, to a remote land where she ll be forced to live as his wife and prisoner The story progresses from each character s viewpoints, as we watch Anna explore her situation, and we watch Hal as he attempts to hide his frustration at the roadblocks in his way We watch Anna s mother, as she slowly comes to realize that Spencer isn t the wonderful son in law she has always thought him to be, and we see her become an unlikely hero in the search for her daughter...

    I had the great fortune to read this as an Advanced Reader Copy for NetGalley in exchange for this objective review.This is the first book in the series I had read, thus I was not aware of the characters Luckily, the author wrote this book so it could be a standalone book At the beginning, I was a little confused when the same character was referred by two names Anna and Bella but soon realized she was known by 2 names one by her ex husband and family When she starts her life away from the South, she is known as Anna Also, each chapter was devoted to a different character but I adapted to it quickly.The story is about a medical examiner who is in a steady relationship with a detective She has just taken pregnancy tests but was waiting for Hal to see the results She is abducted by whom The author wrote as if she had researched cases of ...

    This is book 4 in the series and picks up exactly where Expose finishes I would definitely recommend reading these in order otherwise you might miss out on how horrendous Spencer is I liked how this one tied everything up but I preferred the other 3 I think it was because this one lacked the crime solving element They added in a secondary crime to distract Hal but we didn t get much information on it and it was all tied up pretty quick It was a bit slow in places as well, especially with how much detail and time was spent on Anna finding non drugged water It got a bit repetitive and dull That being said it was a good finale I absolutely adore Anna and Hal and they are such an adorable couple The suspense of wondering if and how Anna was going to escape and if Hal was going to be able to find her in time made it an exciting read The ending was the explosive and dramatic ending I ne...
