    A readable version of the TV show

    This book is the first based on the TV series, Royal Pains. The author, who is a doctor, does a great job of writing Evan and Divya, an okay job of writing Hank and Jill but apparently doesn't understand Boris at all. There are a couple of different patients using the same type of vitamins and a granddaughter of another patient that Hank is treating. It is easy and fast to read. I wasn't wowed but it is okay.

    I recommend it

    I am a big fan of the show. I found the book every bit as good as the show.

    Waste Of My Time

    The characterization is totally wrong-except Evan, his annoying qualities are well in tact. The patients' dialogues all sound so repetitive that you would think that it was the same person if they didn't have names. This book does not do the television show justice at all. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Like Lee Goldberg, D.P. Lyle writes novels with TV tie-ins that are fun to read

    Dr. Hank Lawson worked in a major New York City hospital. Two severely ill patients arrived at the same time; he immediately treated the sicker person. That man survived, but he was unable to tend to the other person in time. Hank was fired and blackballed because the man who died was wealthy and a contributor to the hospital. Although Hank no longer could obtain a hospital position, he kept his medical license.

    Dr. Lawson became a concierge doctor to the rich in the Hamptons. He makes house calls, holds their hands, and provides service like the old general physician of years ago. One of his favorite patients is Eleanor Parker Wentworth who is a down to earth person. She is giving her granddaughter Nicole an extravagant wedding. Dr. Lawson learns Nicole suffers from fugue incidents when she disappears and does not know where she is at. Hank locates her, but she has no idea who she is. Her blood contains a dangerous mix of chemicals, but she swears she only takes vitamins. Other patients show the same symptoms. They share one thing in common, but to prove it before someone dies makes Dr. Lawson go out on the limb again; his brother Evan, his girlfriend Jill and his P.A. Dixie has his back.

    Hank remains hurt that he cannot practice the medicine he loves though his patients adore and respect him. Readers will admire and like him as he seems like a Dr. Welby with flaws including irritability. He is all heart as he cares about his patients, his and their families and his staff. Like Lee Goldberg, D.P. Lyle writes novels with TV tie-ins that are fun to read.
