The Fortune Tellers DaughterAlexandra Messner is the first since Officer Nathalie Duncan’s teens to breach the iron fortress of her heart After years of redeeming her brutal and sordid past as the fortune teller’s daughter Nathalie can finally see the promise of a happy future Until an innocently placed photo. The Fortune Teller's Daughter by Diane Wood is a gritty read that will hold you in it's clutches till the very end While the book is superb it should also come with emotional armour and a gallon jug of brain bleach There are parts of this book I wish I could erase from my memory At one point I actually gagged While the bad parts are not overly graphic they are disturbing enough to make even the toughest of the tough shudder To say this book is dark would be putting it mildly Are you still interested in reading it Well let me explain just a little what you can expectNathalie Nat Duncan is a lawyer who changed her path and became a police officer She also spends her all of her free time volunteering at a local women's center So is she the heroine of the story Yes but Nathalie is severely flawed and her flaws stem from a lifetime of horrid abuse She has suffered insurmountably at the hands of a woman who could give Sybil's mother a run for her money Incest rape child abuse sex trafficking and murder all wrapped up in one crazy evil diabolical woman Yep it's all there and the details are truly harrowing Nat is haunted by her past right fully so yet despite breaking free from the evil mother's grasp for years one phone call brings in back into the world she thought she had left behindNat's love interest in the story is Alex Messner Alex just happens to be a psychologist that begins volunteering at the very same women's center Her attraction to Nat is immediate and this is the first time she has felt anything in two years since she lost her longtime partner to cancer Alex is everything that Nat is not She is grounded open and has nothing but love in her heart She has set her sights on Nat and will do everything she can to bring happiness to Nat's life Nat just needs to trust her and let her inSo love conuers all Sure but I don't think I would classify this as a romance It doesn't follow the standard romance formula This book has love sure but this story is very multi faceted To me it leaned heavy towards an intrigue or a mystery The romance of Alex and Nat is definitely not on the main stage Plus there is also a sub plot of a lesbian targeting serial killer Nat just happens to be on the task force hunting this murdering SOB I told you it was heavySo overall this book is very good Dark and twisty and at times very hard to stomach Would I re read this book no never again brain bleach remember Would I read another book by this author oh yes I would
