Best Estelle Ryan Books:
Three novels come to mind when one is asked about the best books from Estelle Ryan’s Genevieve Lenard series. These are the following:
The Gauguin Connection: The first book of Estelle Ryan is undoubtedly in the top tier, as this is where the lead character has flourished from being a nonverbal communications expert into someone who solves crimes. In The Gauguin Connection, Dr. Genevieve Lenard has been recruited by a friend to research about the death of an artist and practically forced to get out of the safety shell that she has built around herself to decipher what truly happened to the murdered person. The author has generated a strong yet unique persona in the form of Dr. Genevieve Lenard, a highly known insurance investigator whose idea of normalcy is dealing with the Asperger’s syndrome or Autism. Whereas she is not a likely candidate to perform detective work in a regular setting, Estelle Ryan has done an amazing job at shedding light to the fact that being diagnosed with this condition does not entail that the number of activities that individual is allowed to take part in are limited.
The Dante Connection: Things are progressing for Dr. Genevieve Lenard in this second novel. She cannot be classified as a recluse; however, the main character has always faced difficulties in terms of interacting and making friends with other people. When a few individuals whom she has thought have abandoned her in the past have come back because of their desire to protect her from a possible assaulter while continuing to read through coded messages, Dr. Genevieve has had to adapt once more to a different environment that is full of trust and camaraderie. This promises to be a wonderful read, owing to the truth that Dr. Lenard’s newfound friends view her as a highly intelligent person, and not as an autistic whom no one can understand. Knowing that there are people who will come to your aid at all cost is one thing, but seeing the same folks treating you like an equal and valuing your ideas is a blessing that Estelle Ryan has gifted to Dr. Genevieve Lenard.
The Pucelle Connection: The sixth installment of the book series deserves to be included in the top list, for the events that have transpired in the novel have caused a huge emotional crisis for Dr. Genevieve Lenard. By this time, her allies are no longer strangers to her. They are more like the brothers and sisters that she has never had. For this reason, when an unfortunate incident has almost snuffed the life out of one of her friends, the non-verbal communications specialist has barely managed to contend with the existing issue and reiterate to herself why she is still involved in the chase after an international fugitive. Her smarts are truly helpful in putting the pieces of the imaginary puzzle together, as connective the previous cases is the only way for the whole team to capture the criminal who has been causing destruction to so many lives around the globe and avenge the poor souls who have been victimized by the evil scheme in the process.
