This time the drama and action take place in Dallas as well as Dainger, Texas. Dainger was introduced in the first book of the series, Code Blue, and the main character from that story appears in this third book.
Elena Gardner has only 30 days until she finishes her residency and starts her dream job of practicing family medicine. She is still reeling from the death of her husband 6 months ago and the fact that she was the one to make the decision to put a Do Not Resuscitate order on his chart after he experienced an aneurysm. The guilt she feels is overwhelming. However, there are those who whisper she might have helped her husband on his way to his demise. Elena doesn't remember shutting off the machines that kept her husband alive, but maybe she is suppressing the memory. Then, another patient she initially admits succumbs to the same fate of life support being turned off when everyone saw Elena in the room alone with the patient. He also miraculously has a Do Not Resuscitate order on his chart with her signature. Elena swears she didn't sign the order. What is going on? Is someone trying to ruin her career?
Elena depends on her one friend, David Merritt, to listen and offer her support. He wants more than friendship, but is being patient while Elena deals with her grief and these new problems. He is soon to finish his residency and begin practicing obstetrics in Dainger, Texas. Coincidentally, Elena receives an offer to practice there as well. She will be filling in for a doctor who will be out on maternity leave with the potential to join the practice as an associate. She grabs this chance after her job offer with another physician is pulled out from under her. The staff end her last 30 days early and she leaves for Dainger. Will the phone calls that come every Tuesday at midnight continue in her new town? She is hoping for a fresh start.
This story has some similarities in characters and plot to book 2 in the series, so I am lowering my rating for some lack of originality. However, the book is still worth reading as there is suspense and mystery to entertain. This is a good addition to the series. I will be reviewing the fourth book in the series here, so stay tuned for more medical suspense stories.
