When a brilliant surgeon undergoes a heart transplant, her life transforms as she begins experiencing memories of a murder she never witnessed.
The residents worship her. Nurses step out of her way. Her colleagues respect and sometimes even fear her. But surgeon Tori Taylor never expected to end up on this side of the operating table.
Now she has a new heart. This life that was formerly controlled and predictable is now chaotic. Dr. Taylor had famously protected herself from love or commitment, but her walls are beginning to crumble.
And strangest of all, memories surface that will take her on a journey out of the operating room and into a murder investigation.
Where there once was a heart of stone, there is a heart of flesh. And there is no going back.
My comments:  I enjoyed this book and could hardly put it down.  It reads as if science fiction, which I don’t normally enjoy, but because this was not scifi, I stuck with it and glad I did. Books with medical mystery type themes hook me from the beginning and this was no exception to that.  I read it in a day and a half.  The whole concept of a heart transplant on a relatively young woman interested me.  This  woman whose personality completely changes, but in the end didn’t really know herself at all.  There is a romance element, and there is a large faith component – both well written and not over the top or didactic.  I liked this book and I recommend it to those who love a good mystery based in faith.
