Hello, TranscriberHello, Transcriber by Hannah Morrissey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked this book enough but it started off a little slow and I had a hard time getting into it. I did love the unique premise as I don't think I have ever read a book with a transcriber as a character before. Hazel was the type of character I loved to hate, I felt for her in some ways as it seemed her job defined her as she had a crumbling marriage and suffers from depression. I like when books can focus on mental health in a non judgy yet real way...It happens to the best of us. Hannah Morrissey writes with great characterization and I was able to feel things about them. I did not like the romantic side of the story though, it wasn't needed, this book worked well as a simple crime story and an adult, school-girl crushing over a detective took something away from the story in my opinion. Overall a fairly decent read and I see great things in future for this author.

With many thanks to NetGalley, Hannah Morrissey and St. Martin's Press, Minotaur Books for the giving of the ARC.
