    Fast paced, Hard to put down

    The Suicide Gene hooked me from the first chapter when the book started out with the death of a woman. (I’m not giving anything away there.) But some key facts, such as the person’s identify, were held back. When the author made a leap into the past, I wanted to keep reading to find out who the person was and what series of events led to her death. The plot was unlike any other I’ve read. It touched on so many interesting things from identical twins to adoption to Ernest Hemingway, and of course, to a possible suicide gene. Every time I thought I had the plot figured out, there was a twist. I found the characters well developed and unique. I’d recommend this book to adults interested in a page-turner. However, the author did note on the Dedication Page that it might not be the best book if you are having suicidal thoughts because the book deals with suicide and depression. She even gave a hotline number. But I thought the author handled a difficult topic in a respectful, and likely realistic way, by interspersing chapters where a character was about to commit suicide, and then for various reasons, chose to live.

    Dark engrossing look at am obsessed psychiatrist!

    Dr. Emma Rose is convinced that there is a Suicide Gene that makes some families, like the Hemingway’s, more likely to kill themselves in this introspective thriller. Emma is a psychiatrist counseling the McKinney family before one of their members commit suicide. Emma struggles with her own marital and psychological issues. She was adopted and her birth files have mysteriously disappeared. Her lifelong obsession with genetics leads her to conclude that her patients are her long-lost siblings. The McKinneys have a history of suicide, depression and infidelity. Emma has been mistaken for them on several occasions due their physical similarities. At the same time, Emma suspects that her husband, Josh, is cheating on her. There is a swirling mishmash of plots circling the possibly unreliable narrator. Emma and most of the other characters are very unsympathetic and cold. It is hard to care much about what will happen to them. However, the two mysteries found within Suicide Gene are intriguing enough to keep the reader moving forward. This is an extremely dark story. Readers with a history of suicidal thoughts, family Alzheimer’s or breast cancer will probably not enjoy this book. However, it is very different from most thrillers or mysteries so those looking for something unique will enjoy it. 3 stars. Thanks to the publisher, Wild Rose Press, Inc., and NetGalley for a copy in an exchange for my honest review.
