THE STEPCHILD By Joanne Fluke

A romantic suspense, it was written 1980. I didn’t realize that this author has a number of suspense novels. While it was well written and the narrative flow smoothly, I was disappointed it was very predictable. I knew before I was very far into the book it was written earlier than the current time by the many uses of cigarettes. The ending did give a small surprise that I was not expecting.
Kathy Ellison, a student, and daughter of a candidate for a Senate seat has moved into a boyfriend’s apartment. The election is closed and she must do nothing to interest the press. Whenever she has sex with her boyfriend she has dreams of another life. She will go into a trance and speak with a child’s voice and called the name Shari. Kathy is afraid of trains and a couple of times she almost committed suicide. What is happening? Is Kathi being processed by a spirit?

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Kensington Books through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
