I don't like Christian fiction and avoid it at all costs. I must also admit I have never read Christian fiction before I grabbed this book based solely on it being a medical thiller/mystery. I realized what I had done when every secondary character in the book told the main character "I will pray for you" within the first 25 pages. I was so convinced the story would be sappy and completey unpalatable. I was so wrong. I must say I thought this story was amazing! The characters were well-rounded, imperfect and real! My impression of what Christian fiction must be was shattered by the edge of my seat thiller Dianosis Death is. I became engrossed in each character. The story easily could be taking place anywhere and I was easily able to empathize with the characters. I found the internal dialogue the main character was forced to have to be very believable. A wonderful read.

There were elements to this story that I liked. For example, the author brought back Cathy Sewell and Will Kennedy so we could catch up on them since "Code Blue". Nice to read of their relationship progressing and including a baby. The author weaved that into the plot seamlessly and I didn't feel like this was Cathy and Will's story and not Elena's. What I didn't like was the heavy-handed Christian posturing - particularly surrounding the character, Frank. Also, in each book Dr. Mabry has stuck to a formula of 2 possible suitors for each of the heroines. I noticed it in "Code Blue" and "Medical Error" - not a big deal, but in this 3rd novel in the series it became repetitive and overdone. Overall, the plot was believable and the pace was good. Not the best in the series for me as mentioned, but solid writing all the same.

    Not bad

    A Christian, medical, romance, who would of thought it? A little over 200 pages. The proofing was good. The plot was interesting. The heroine was always looking to a man to rescue her. Any available man and then she worried she was leading the guy on. Duh! She used the my husband just died card a few times too often to get out of trouble. She also seemed too needy and not smart enough to be a doctor. The preachiness was not over whelming and for a while I thought one of the doctors was the murderer. It surprized me whodunit. Which was very nice. No sex, no gore, the murder act was mentioned in generic terms, so those fourteen and up could read this book.

    Good read

    This was a good read. A couple of twists kept it interesting but not the best book I've read it was just ok.

    okay

    I had a hard time initially getting into the book but once I did, it was easy reading. I enjoyed most of the book very much but the end felt rushed and made up on the spot, without much background on the culprit. It felt like the author just decided "hm, I need to wrap this up so this person will be the villain". I enjoyed the read but felt let down.
