Overview

First time in ebook!

One foggy November morning on Chicago’s West Side, paramedic trainee Beth Reilly faces a life or death choice that will put her own future in jeopardy. High on cocaine, her veteran paramedic officer slams their ambulance into a homeless, pregnant woman, forcing the woman into labor. Beth alone must decide who will live—the fetus fighting for life or the mother who is hemorrhaging to death. She can’t save them both.

Beth’s decision tests old friendships and creates new enemies. Her woman-hating boss tries to destroy her career. An ambitious prosecutor decides her trial is his ticket to a judgeship. A religious zealot treats her as a sacrificial lamb, diverting suspicion from the woman he loves. A handsome professor enters her life, but is the timing coincidental?

When one of her tormentors dies suspiciously, Beth realized her choices have turned deadly.

    Great suspenseful mystery set around an EMT.

    Beth is a rookie paramedic riding with Angie who does drugs while on duty, but since she's a veteran, Beth knows no one will believe her. When Angie hits a young pregnant woman with the ambulance on a deserted street, Beth finds herself delivering the baby alone. She can't save the mother, so she kidnaps the baby and turns it over to a friend of her who is a Foster mother. Her fire captain doesn't think women have a place in the firehouse. So when he suspects her involvement in the kidnapping, he confronts her. He has a heart attack, and Beth saves his life. Not long after he dies and Angie's journal is found and passed on to an Internal Affairs Detective. Eventually Beth gets caught. A high-power lawyer defends her, finishing the story with page-turning suspense. This story gives the reader a rare glimpse into the daily routine of a paramedic, especially in an all-male fire station. It shows the stresses involved and how bad choices can effect everything we do. While you might not like what Beth did, you will like Beth and her struggles to do the right things. I hope the author will write more books with Beth. If you like a book that will keep you guessing with plenty of suspense, you will love this book. I highly recommend it.

    gripping paramedic plot

    Deadly Choices is a page-turning thriller about a rookie female paramedic (Beth) who finds herself kidnapping a motherless child while on duty. When her overweight fire captain suspects her involvement in the kidnapping he confronts her. As it turns out, the fire captain has a heart attack and Beth saves his life. Her 15 minutes of being the fire station hero comes to an abrupt end shortly after her captain dies and his journal surfaces into the hands of an internal affairs detective. Eventually the mysterious trail leads to Beth and she gets caught. A high-power lawyer defends her and the story ends with a page-turning courtroom drama. Deadly Choices provides a rare look into the day to day activities of a paramedic, which is something new to me at least. The story also forces you to feel compassionate about female paramedics in an all-male fire station. Think GI Jane meets a typical Grisham big city lawyer. The plot is suitable for Lifetime television. It¿s a good and easy read that is pleasantly entertaining.

    Heartpounding suspense!

    I read this book in 2 1/2 hours because I couldn't put it down! When paramedic trainee Beth Riley kidnapped the baby she'd just delivered and gave it to her best friend, a Fundamentalist Christian, to raise as her own, I was shocked! It looked like both kidnappers were going to get away with the crime until the paramedic's fire chief blackmails her. The ambulance scene read right out of ER, and the trial was true to life. The ending was totally freaky!
