A Fresh New Voice in Christian Fiction

Cathy Sewell doesn't just find herself a woman doctor in a man's world. She is a family doctor in a town ruled by specialists. And she has to prove herself and her abilities to gain the hospital privileges she needs to best help her patients. But someone doesn't want her to succeed.

I enjoyed watching Cathy prove her worth over and over. But would it be enough?

Richard L. Mabry, MD is a writer to watch. He brings a fresh new voice to Christian Fiction and medical suspense.

It wasn't very good even for what it was advertised as, which was a "medical thriller." The man who wrote it really does a poor job with a female main character viewpoint, and the poor writing of the main character made the prose agonizingly tedious to read. I made twenty pages before I simply could not continue.

Also, could it have been specifically advertised as Christian fiction instead of as a medical thriller? I'm not Christian and I don't care to be preached at. If I had known that this is actually Christian fiction, I wouldn't have downloaded it at all. Why not be up front about this and save some bad reviews brought on by the bait and switch?
