It was not a huge book so it could be read quickly on my pc. As a nurse, I like medical books. However, this was not "so medical" that a non medical person would not enjoy it. I like the characters and one of the twists in the book caught me by surprise. It ended but yet, gave me the impression that there could be a sequel to the book.
You might want to save this for the week-end so you can stay up until the wee hours reading, because, you will not want to put it down. The medical field mixed with mystery, romance, and strong christian values is just what this doctor ordered. I have researched the author because I was so interested in the man behind this book. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time, and I read a lot!!
A long-time historical romance fan, I rarely read mysteries or suspense novels, but Richard Mabry's book changed that. CODE BLUE swept me into the formerly unknown world of medical drama, but Dr. Mabry did such a great job making the technical aspects of his tale understandable that I was able to enjoy the story fully. I liked Dr. Cathy Sewell and felt for her from the outset. As the plot thickened and she found herself in increasing danger, I flipped the pages faster, eager to find out whodunitâ€”and to find out if there was a place for romance in her busy life. I got my answers, but I was kept guessing until the end. CODE BLUE is a winner. The good doctor has a devoted reader.
Others have written of content. My contribution is to say simply that Dr. Mabry's book is one of the best suspense novels I have ever read. The author's medical knowledge is fine,of course, but his general knowledge marks him as a first-rate mind with a great deal to share, and his writing shows him a true professional. I look forward to reading more of his work.
Cathy Sewell doesn't just find herself a woman doctor in a man's world. She is a family doctor in a town ruled by specialists. And she has to prove herself and her abilities to gain the hospital privileges she needs to best help her patients. But someone doesn't want her to succeed.I enjoyed watching Cathy prove her worth over and over. But would it be enough? Richard L. Mabry, MD is a writer to watch. He brings a fresh new voice to Christian Fiction and medical suspense.
