critical condition

Dr. Frasier couldn’t save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she’s fighting for her own life.

It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier’s colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again.

Her “almost-fiancé” Dr. Mark Gilbert’s support only adds to Shannon’s feelings of guilt, since she can’t bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he’s just been diagnosed with leukemia.

Shannon thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, “What did he say before he died?”

With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.

My Comments:  I love books that combine suspense and medical information. Not only does this book have that, but the main characters are preacher’s daughters, which hits close to my home and heart. There are a few interesting twists and turns. I was led to believe someone was involved in the crime who wasn’t. I like that. I don’t want to be able to clearly figure it out. I do like having options which this story provides. I read this book in about two days while on vacation. It was hard to put down. I felt vicariously involved in Shannon’s faith journey. I felt it real to life that she was struggling, and her boyfriend who wasn’t raised “in the faith” had a strong, vibrant faith. I have read all of the books written so far by Richard Mabry and I will continue reading as long as he keeps writing! 

I received a free e-copy of this book from BookLook and the Publishers in exchange for my honest review which I have given.
