In this powerful narrative, bestselling author Sarah Price takes us on the dark road to addiction.
Laura Reese is losing control. Compassionate and conscientious, she excels as a post-op nurse, but her new supervisor doesn’t care how much she needs time off. Although she’s a selfless wife and mother, news of her husband’s promotion only fills her with anxiety. The country-club lifestyle he craves triggers memories of the dysfunctional family she came from, and of her own mother’s single-minded ambition to climb the social ladder.
Laura has reached a breaking point. For her, there’s only one way to pull it all together, to balance the demands of her family and job, and to keep pleasing everyone she loves. But her little blue pills are pushing her closer to the edge…

The only God thoughts are "Oh God"... a common prayer when in trouble and we want to escape consequences. The author never acknowledges a faith in God in her story (or in her dedication). And because of that I became increasingly anxious myself as I am daily involved in the medical field and rely on the nurses for the care of people I love. I became weary with the story and no hope for this character . Even though there was resolution of the problem, the ending was not realistic and what lessons were learned were devoid of spiritual growth. The character did it "on her own" without any help from God. There were plenty of opportunities to bring the guidance of our beliefs into the struggle through critically ill patients like the elderly woman, Geri. A Christian fiction book should have elements of behavior and struggle in this world but with resolution with the power God gives us, "so that the world will see the difference."

As I devoured this heartbreaking narrative of a beautiful young mother, wife, and nurse who faces the pain of addiction to prescription meds, my emotions were all over the page -- literally.
I loved Laura's character...that of a compassionate nurse, loving mother, and devoted wife who becomes overwhelmed and begins to suffer from anxiety attacks. With finesse and sensitivity, Ms. Price touches on a subject where few dare to tread, but where many have painfully traveled. Overuse and over prescribing anti-anxiety, pain, and antidepressant medications are a major problem in every walk of life. A beautifully written and well-researched novel of hope and healing I couldn't put down. Highly recommended!

It seems everyone wants something from her and now the holidays on upon her and she just can't seem to get a break. Her new boss seems to want to make everything that much harder and she is not about to make this transition easy. All she needs is a little something to get through it all and she knows it will give her a break, I mean it can't be that bad right?
Just like other books I have read of Sarahs this one does not hold back and will not disappoint at all. Sarahs not afraid to write/talk about some tough subjects in her books and that was very much the case with Heavenly Blues. I loved how she held nothing back in this book. Addiction weather legal or illegal is facing our nation and this book was a total eye opener to that. Addiction doesnt have a face it can effect anyone. This book is so worth the read and is so so amazing. Once you start the book you will not want to put it down the author did an amazing job at sucking you in to the story and leaving you wanting more with every page.
