The Photographer By: Mary Dixie Carter / Book Review


When perfect images as a photographer, Delta Dawn observes the seemingly perfect lives of New York City’s elite: snapping photos of their children’s birthday parties, transforming images of stiff hugs and tearstained faces into visions of pure joy, and creating moments these parents long for. Are made of beautiful lies! When Delta is hired for Natalie Straub’s eleventh birthday, she finds herself wishing she wasn’t behind the lens but a part of the scene-in the Straub family’s gorgeous home and elegant life. The truth will be exposed!! That’s when Delta puts her plan in place, by babysitting for Natalie; befriending her mother, Amelia; finding chances to listen to her father, Fritz. Soon she’s bathing in the master bathtub, drinking their expensive wine, and eyeing the beautifully finished garden apartment in their townhouse. It seems she can never get close enough, until she discovers that photos aren’t all she can manipulate.


Delta is one of the best photographers she can make any picture look incredible. She first meets the Straub’s family when they hire her for their daughter’s birthday party, she’s immediately intrigued by this family and wants to know more about them, and Oh Boy she does, she begins babysitting for them, house sitting when their away! She learns that Amelia is desperate to have another baby but unfortunately she can’t bear anymore children! So what better way to get more involved with the family then to offer to become their surrogate, and she will stop at nothing to make this happen, even if that’s lying! This story is basically about a women who becomes so obsessed with a family the writing style is good the storyline is pretty good and definitely keep me intrigued to know what the outcome would be this is a psychological thriller but I didn’t get it for myself like I have with other books I’ve read I was looking for a more twist ending and felt like the ending was a little rushed and was hoping for a little bit more! I would probably gives this a 3.5 Star!

Thank you for reading my blog!!!  Let me know what other book you all would recommend I would love to read them!
