Summer Reads: Medical Judgement

Abingdon Press; 320 pages; $14.99; Buy Link; Blog Tour
It's not a secret that I love to read a good mystery now and then. From a Sherlock Holmes classic to a James Patterson crime novel, pretty much all mysteries appeal to me.

Now available to own in paperback is the medical suspense novel Medical Judgement by Richard L. Mabry, M.D., the author of the Prescription for Trouble Series.

Medical Judgment centers on Dr. Sarah Gordon, a woman who is still grieving the deaths of her husband, Harry, and their two-year-old daughter, Jenny. It's been over eight months since the accident occurred that destroyed her life, and now another tragic event happens - her house catches on fire.

Well, to be more precise, somebody sets her garage on fire. Why who would somebody want to kill Sarah?

This is where Bill Larson comes into the picture. He is a recovering alcoholic, and he's also the detective assigned to investigate the arson case. It doesn't take him long to realizes that someone is targeting Sarah. With the help of attorney Kyle Anderson (who was also the best friend of Sarah's husband), they try to unravel the mystery.

Final Thoughts: The funny thing is that I had featured the book cover for Medical Judgment in my blog's monthly meme "Top 5 Best Book Covers" last month. I later realized that I had already signed up to review it. Typically when I receive an advanced copy, I would stack the book in the to-be-read pile and read each one by the order of the book tour date. However, that wasn't the case with this one as I read it on the day I received it.

The author wastes no time setting up the main plot; within the first chapter you are introduced to the main character, Sarah, learn about her heartbreaking past, and find out that her house is set on fire. From that point on, I was clued to the story; turning each page and reading each chapter with excitement.

Overall, Medical Judgement is a fast-paced thriller with plenty of twists and turns around every corner (or every few chapters). I didn't know who was behind the "fire" until very end.
