Overview

The national bestseller Lifelines felt “like all the best episodes of ER and Grey's Anatomy squeezed into one breathtaking novel” (Hilton Head Monthly). Now CJ Lyons returns to the front lines of the struggle between life and death…

On rotation at Pittsburgh's Angels of Mercy Hospital and struggling to finish medical school, Amanda Mason can't afford to make any mistakes—or to reveal a troubling secret. Mysterious symptoms that defy diagnosis have been affecting her performance, and as she struggles to keep control, the only person who seems to notice is the irritatingly observant and sexy Dr. Lucas Stone.

But when two patients who experienced the same strange symptoms die, and another slips into a coma, Amanda realizes her own clock is ticking. With help from her friends—Gina, a roommate recovering from her own trauma; Lydia, a streetwise ER attending; and Nora, a by-the-book charge nurse—Amanda must solve this medical mystery before she becomes its next victim...

I could not put this book down! Not to mention one of the most amazing things about the book is how accurate it is on so many different levels. The friendships, romances, and relationships througout the book touch your heart. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE in the series :)/

Warning Signs was an awsome book. I grew up in Pittsburgh. So when I saw a book based in Pittsburgh I had to get it. I also liked the medical theme to the book. Reading Warning signs was watching a movie in the theatre. CJ Lyons brings emotions to her charaters and makes you feel what they are feeling. As I was reading warning signs I couldn't put the book down. I had to know what was going to happen next. CJ Lyons also makes you in the dark about what systoms that the main character has. If you like mystery and medical themes then you should read this book.

'Lifelines' is a well-written, fast-paced read that won't let you put it down. As a sequel, 'Warning Signs' doesn't disappoint; it's just as hard to put down. I was able to predict some of the plot but that didn't take away from the enjoyment. The twists and surprises come mostly from Gina and Nora. I did like reading more about Lydia and Trey. Amanda is almost too nice and cheerful, but I can't help rooting for her! The medical aspects provide plenty of drama and there's more romance in 'Warning Signs' than the first book. Overall, this is a great read and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Hope I don't have to wait long!

I worked in Medicine for over forty years. The characters and events are so much like people I knew and events I either participated in or heard in the rumor mill or over lunch. Ray

At Pittsburgh's Angels of Mercy Hospital, fourth year medical student Amanda Mason is on rotation and she is going to Neurology to be overseen by Dr. Lucas Stone. He is the one physician she does not want to work with because she has a crush on him. She is also angry with him. When she was a little off in her performance, he forced her to have a physical; to make ends meet she is part of a research study conducted by Dr. Nelson.

Dr. Stone¿s newest patient is paralyzed but mentally aware; two previous patients with identical symptoms died with no one knowing the cause. This frightens Amanda because she has some of the same symptoms including shaking hands and feet, and numbness that has her tripping. With two patients dead and one in a coma Amanda now knows the link between them and her, but will it prove in time to save the newest patient and perhaps the next one: Amanda.

This exhilarating medical thriller gets the blood pumping as readers will admire and root for courageous Amanda. She and Luke find the first connection although what she learns ties her to the victims. The frightened heroine and her posse of friends investigate to learn who is behind the bizarre symptoms she suffers from and others did before they advanced into paralysis and death. This is a terrific thriller and fans of Michael Palmer will enjoy this fine tale of a brave but scared medical student in trouble.

I read the first book in the series, Lifelines, and just LOVED it. I could not wait until the second book in the series came out. I snatched it up in the first week it was out. C.J. Lyons has a way of describing the inner workings of a hospital in a style that you will remember long after you put the book down. I am now waiting for the third book in the series. *g*
