Book Review-Alex's Beginnings: An Alexandra Destephano Prequel-Judith Lucci

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Once you read this prequel you will know why Alexandra Destephano became who she is and why.

Unfortunately this same scenario has happened to many in real life--both men and women I might add. Alexandra lived with her boyfriend who was becoming a doctor--she was also going to school. She decided she wanted to continue her education. He did not want her to-he, it turned out wanted the status quo--a stay at home wife and mother to his children-just like his Mom (and hers actually) were. Totally an old fashioned mind set--She had to make a decision--and that decision would make her realize what kind of man he really was-and set the course for the rest of her life and the book series.

I actually did read the first in this series and it was really good! I found that I totally sympathized with Alexandra and was very glad she did what she did! I think you will be as well. This prequel, for those of you who have never read any other in this series, will definitely make you want to read the rest!

"I love to think of heinous ways to dispose of people - sometimes a lot of people- but it must be creative. I don't use guns very often but rather rely on my medical background and research to figure out the best way to get the job done. Bullets are just too easy. I'm sure a psychiatrist would have a ball trying to figure out why someone who spent her life caring for people and saving lives, now spends hours each day in the creative pursuit of murder."
