“The author did a fantastic job at making Delta's fabricated reality into the reality that the reader believes is true as well. It takes a while for the reader to start to understand that Delta is delusional and psychotic. We enjoyed the depth that the author gave to Amelia as well. Instead of just being a shallow character, she was someone who you felt the depth of her grief and longing for a child. Overall, this is a well-written, incredibly original, yet unnervingly realistic story that gets you to question if the people in your life are really who they say they are.”Julia, The Book Worm Bookstore
“Mary Dixie Carter’s debut is a standout psychological suspense! With excellent pacing and a completely addictive style, The Photographer is exactly the kind of book you want to read in one sitting. This is a sneaky and unsettling read that’ll leave you guessing from start to finish.”Becky LeJeune, BookBar
“Delta Dawn is an extraordinary photographer. She is especially in demand to photograph the birthday parties of the children of elite New Yorkers. She is so successful because she knows how to capture an image (or slightly manipulate it when necessary) to show the parents a picture of what they perceive the reality of their lives and relationships to be. Delta tells her own story in the book and she is just as accomplished at making the reader see reality as she wants you to believe it exists as she is at manipulating what you see. I have never encountered a character quite like Delta. This extremely addictive and suspenseful look at obsession, desire and obviously some deep-seated psychological trauma will have you asking yourself what is real until the very last word. Plus, you will learn a lot about photography.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
