First of all, I gotta tell you, Richard L. Mabry has been added to my "must read" authors list -- I loved this book! It's a very fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat, medical suspense, with a healthy dose of romance. Just what the doctor ordered *pun intended* to get me out of my reading slump. ;)
I'm not big on in-depth reviewing for mystery/suspense books, as I don't want to give away any key, or surprise, elements of the story, but I'll do my best. Honestly, the synopsis from Amazon pretty much says it all.
When I requested this book to review, it was with mixed feelings. I wondered if I would be able to understand what was going on since I'm not all that knowledgeable on medical jargon (though I did take a Medical Terminology class a couple of years ago, and am now working in a medical environment); this book is written by a retired physician/medical school professor. I thought Dr. Mabry did an excellent job with making everything understandable for the average person; I found it very easy to follow along with Dr. Cathy Sewell's life-threatening journey.
I'm already looking forward to the second book in this series, Medical Error, set to release in September 2010. Not long to wait -- yay!! If you're interested in finding out more about Dr. Richard L. Mabry, MD, or his publications/books, be sure to check out his website.
