    A good, solid, psychological thriller. A woman wronged, hell bent on revenge. The theme might seem familiar, it’s one that’s been done many times before.
    Now, the thing here, as the author, is to make your version of it seem new and fresh. Make it enticing & exciting so the reader picks it up in the first place.
    Well, something must have been done properly for me to want to read it in the first instance.
    There’s clearly been a lot of thought gone into this, as the background for the book has

    From the beginning of the book, you are sucked right in and you cannot put it down until you finish this book. This book is action packed, with suspense and excitement about what happens next.

    Medeia is the wife of John, a man cheating on her with his secretary Anna. He keeps Medeia from having a job, friends and basically from being herself. Medeia, being from the sticks, goes along with these things John does not allow her to do, thinking she is being the wife he wants her to be. Until....she c

    Holy cow! Dear Anna had everything I look for in a book. This story sucked me in from that very first page. The notes to Anna were seriously perfect and the workings of a veteran author—not someone writing their first thriller.

    Blanchard’s words were flawless. Every bit of this story flowed smoothly and effortlessly. I’ve never rooted for a character like I did Medeia. She was a scorned wife with a horrible, horrible excuse for a husband. This author’s mind was so dark and twisted, the way she w

    Dear Anna,
    I was the perfect wife.
    You were his whore.
    You plotted against me with the devil, himself.
    Will God let you repent for your sin?
    I won't.

    This book was nice but I would not go so far and call it "psychological thriller",it's more a book about domestic violence.
    It was nicely written,it wasn't too long,there was no dragging around,it was fast paced and straight on point.It's told only from Media's POV so you get really good insight into her mind.However,there was no suspension here because you already know how this thing will end before you reach the middle of the book.

    "He wanted me to have everything I desired back then, and I was so enamored with it that I didn’t realize I would be giving parts of my soul away as payment."

    Dear Anna was my first book by Katie Blanchard and I must admit I am pretty impressed. You would NEVER know this was her first taste of writing a physiological thriller.

    Wow! What a thriller, action packed, exciting, riveting, powerful. Oh men, beware your betrayed spouse!

    Medeia is married to John, a very wealthy successful businessman who has groomed her in more ways than one. Gone is the poor girl with a dubious family with little or nothing; she is now the trophy wife with impeccable grooming, taste and charm. But John has groomed her in the negative sense as well. Gone is her job, gone is her family (they are not good enough), gone are all her friends, gone

    I had noticed Dear Anna by Katie Blanchard out and about for a few days. While it sounded really good I just didn't have the time to add another review to my calendar for mid-July. Then I saw the cover. I don't know what it is about covers but they can really make or break a book. In this instance, it went from I just can't too... I have to find a way to fit this in. And I did.

As you read from the blurb Medeia is married to John, a wealthy man. The opening chapter is you seeing Media watching her husband having an intimate lunch with his secretary Anna, hence the name of the book. Media gave up everything to be married to John and then to find out he his cheating on her is devastating. But, that is not all. She finds out that with ...more

    Holy cow!!! This book was AMAZING!!!! Definitely on my list for top reads of this year. This isn't a romance, it's classified as a psychological thriller, and rightfully so. This will fuck with your head, but in the most delicious way possible. It's definitely a thriller, you won't be able to put this book down. There's not really any twists, except for the very last sentence of the book, which I'm still crazy over.

    This book totally left me with all the feels. This book is about an abused woman who gets revenge on her husband once he sleeps with his secretary.. he tried to keep her as naive as he could by making her cut off all family members and friends but little did her husband know that she saw him with his secretary getting awful cozy. Revenge will be gotten and karma never felt so good. I loved how this book was only one perspective ( the wife’s) which helped me to stay connected to the story. This b ...more

    This is a well written book, especially since it’s a debut novel. It’s short and fast paced. There’s no dragging around. It’s written only from one perspective and that helps to keep it straight. It’s interesting enough that you keep turning the pages but it’s not a thriller. It’s a domestic drama with a murder but not a shocking psychological thriller as it’s being portrayed. There aren’t any twists in the tale that prove shocking. The characters are well created and make you wish you

    Wow. What a suspenseful thrill ride. Medeia discovers her rich, controlling husband is cheating on her with his secretary. But with an iron clad prenup, divorce is out of the question. What's a girl to do? Murder, of course.

    I didn't care for the ending. It seemed hastily thrown together. But the journey to get there was well thought out, well written, and fun to read. I couldn't put it down. Nicely done.

    I love books. I love to hold books, look at books, hoard books, buy too many books, and most importantly read books. I decided one day that instead of letting characters act out the day inside my head, that I would put them down on paper. Thus, the birth of Pressing Flowers, my first self-published novel.
