Finished Reading Feb 3, 2013. Indeed a Christian thriller that was very enjoyable. I don’t do spoilers, but I will tell the ending was unexpected. I found the pace fairly good and the characters relatively substantial.
If there is a complaint about the book it is not against Dr. Mabry’s writing.I found the formatting difficult at times, and numerous typos. Spaces where there should not be spaces, or no space at the beginning of sentences. They were not a dire distraction, but from a publisher like Abingdon Press I expected more.
I recommend the book, but do remember the genre is Christian and deserving of 4 1/2 Stars. The second book in the series is on my “to read” list.
I just finished reading “The Land That Time Forgot” by Edgar Rice Burroughs. A timely classic I enjoyed very much and available at Project Gutenberg as are many wonderful classics. It’s good sometimes to stop, go back and read the books that thrilled us in our childhood and sparked our imagination.
It’s good, though, to read what’s new, or relatively contemporary. I found Richard Mabry’s “Code Blue” on my Kindle last evening and decided it was time to read it. I purchased it some time ago after beginning to follow Dr. Mabry on Twitter, seeing it is customary for me to purchase at least one book by an author I follow. It has sat on my reader for some time.
Time to blow off the dust and crack the cover, and yes, my Kindle has a cover.
— Book Description —
In the first book of the Prescription for Trouble series, Code Blue means more to Dr. Cathy Sewell than the cardiac emergency she has to face. It describes her mental state as she finds that coming back to her hometown hasn’t brought her the peace she so desperately needs. Instead, it s clear that someone there wants her gone…or dead.
Cathy returns to her hometown seeking healing after a broken relationship, but discovers that among her friends and acquaintances is someone who wants her out of town…or dead.
Lawyer Will Kennedy, her high school sweetheart, offers help, but does it carry a price tag? Is hospital chief of staff Dr. Marcus Bell really on her side in her fight to get hospital privileges? Is Will’s father, Pastor Matthew Kennedy, interested in advising her or just trying to get her back to the church she left years ago? When one of Cathy’s prescriptions almost kills the town banker, it sets the stage for a malpractice suit that could end her time in town, if not her career. It s soon clear that this return home was a prescription for trouble.
