I have read almost all of Dr. Mabry books and he quickly has become one of my favorite authors,  I had no doubt that I would enjoy this book and I was not let down at all.

I have read almost all of Dr. Mabry books and he quickly has become one of my favorite authors,  I had no doubt that I would enjoy this book and I was not let down at all. 




Dr. Carrie Markham never thought she would fall in love again after the death of her husband.  Two years later she finds herself in love and happier than she though was possible.  Adam Davidson has a big secret that he has not shared with his new fiancé Carrie.   Within the first few pages, you will be hooked---Carrie and Adam are leaving the local theater and next thing you there is an attempt on their lives with a drive-by shooting. Adam realizes that he must tell Carrie his secret.  Adam is not his real name, he is really Keith Branson and that he is on the run as some very bad people are trying to kill him so he had been placed in the witness protection program. 




Carrie is hurt as she is no longer sure who she is engaged to and calls the engagement off.  After agreeing to talk with 'Adam', Carrie knows that deep down she really does love him and puts the engagement on hold while they figure out things.  Little did Carrie know that they would have to deal with more life threatening situation since the drive-by that started the roller coaster when Adam revealed his true identity. 




This story has it all--suspense, romance, action, lots of twist, a great plot. Both the main characters are very believable and I found myself rooting for them to make it through everything and to be able to have their very own happily ever after with each other. This story reminds us that The Lord is in control of everything and to never give up your faith in him. 




Dr. Mabry does a wonderful job of telling the medical.  He does not use medical jargon that most people do not understand.  Instead he explains things in layman's  term so as you are reading you have an understanding as to what something is.  When I read my first book by him, Code Blue, #1 in the prescription for trouble series, I knew that I had read more this author.  I think with his background in medicine and his style of writing, that he does an incredible job of explaining things to those not in the medical field. 




For anyone who is looking for an great clean suspenseful medical book with some romance--this is your book.  You will not be let down.  Medical suspense books are one of my top genre go to books after reading Dr. Mabry books.  I want to and look forward to reading a lot more by him.  His books are ones that I have recommended to many other people. 








Disclosure:  I was given a copy of this book by the author.  In return I am giving my honest, unbiased review.

Please bn, do something with these plot spoilers who consistently reveal every detail of the book, then brag how they got their book for free for their so cslled honest and unbiased review. It is not honest or unbiased nor is it a review when it is a reveal of the entire plot line.

    Richard Mabry can always be counted on to produce a fast-paced, page-turning medical thriller with believable characters and settings, authentic medical detail, and lots of heart (plus a little bit of baseball). He's done it again with Heart Failure. Themes of love and loss, faith and doubt, revenge and forgiveness give this gripping read a deeper, satisfying significance.

     I love Dr. Richard Mabry's books.  They are a real treat: enjoy

     I love Dr. Richard Mabry's books.  They are a real treat: enjoyable all the way through each moment of fast paced mysterious adventure. When I'm reading one of his books, I just can't guess what's coming next!

    My acquaintance with Dr. Mabry's books began March of 2013 with Stress Test. I knew I would love that book from the moment I encountered the line: "Let's get him in the trunk."

    Heart Failure had me from this line: "To begin with, Adam Davidson isn't my real name.... My real name is Keith Branson. I'm on the run. If the wrong people find me, I'm a dead man."

    Wow, what a hook to pull you in! Those words were spoken by our main male character to his fiancee, moments after they were nearly killed in a drive-by shooting as they left a the movies after a date.
    The lovely Spring dusk that had been so peaceful was shattered by fear, and then their evening was filled with revelation.
    Carrie apparently did *not* know all there was to know about the man she loved. Adam, really Keith, was fleeing from the Witness Security Program. All he had wanted was to live a real life, free from both pursuers and protectors... but now he may have endangered the woman who holds his heart.

    If you haven't read Stress Test, you can start with Heart Failure.
    If you have read Stress Test, then you know why you have to read Heart Failure.

    What makes these books so good?
    The interpersonal relationships are painted in full color; there is just the right amount of romance; the suspense level is high... I just can't say enough about these stories!

    Thank you Booksneeze for sending me my copy of Heart Failure to review.
