Harry Kraus' "Serenity" is a mystery set at a small hospital in the Outer Banks community of Serenity, North Carolina. Two new staffers join the hospital simultaneously: Dr. Adam Tyson, a surgeon, and head nurse Beth Carlson. Beth is almost immediately the victim of a hit-and-run driver--who turns out to be Tyson, who turns out not really to be a surgeon but a physician's assistant who has taken his late employer's identity. Even so, he's the hero, and licensed or not, he's skilled in the operating room. The villains of the piece are the hospital's CEO and a manipulative nurse, who are engaged in Medicare fraud. Though a trifle preachy, Kraus' mystery is engaging, and his operating-room scenes sparkle.

A wonderful reminder of how God loves us unconditionally, because of who He is,not what we do.

I usually like Harry Kraus' writing but this book was a disappointment. I was reading it aloud to my husband and we wanted to hear the ending so I did finish it - but it was difficult.

The storyline was interesting but the portrayal of the police and FBI was pitiful. They were pretty much the KEYSTONE COPS. That did make it hard to read. At first I thought it would improve (they would get smarter) but no such luck.

Otherwise it was a good story - but that is a big otherwise.

Good story about a life started as a lie, a murder and alittle romance. If you like a mystery you'll enjoy this one.
