Medical Judgment by Richard L, Mabry, M.D. - REVIEWED

About the book: 

Medical Judgment (Abingdon Press, May 2016)

Dr. Sarah Gordon lost her husband and daughter. Now she's about to lose her life.

After losing the two people she loved the most, Sarah Gordon doesn't think life could get worse. But, after a fire in her garage is ruled an arson, she begins to realize someone is after her---and that person wants to see her dead. But first, they want to see her suffer.

Her late husband's best friend, Kyle Andrews, and a recovering alcoholic detective, Bill Larson, are trying to solve the mystery before it's too late, and they're both trying to win her heart, too. Not only does Sarah feel torn between two men, she also feels as though she cannot trust anyone.

With creepy threats that become more and more sinister, Sarah finds herself in constant fear, but even the best home alarm technology won't protect her. Who is doing this, and why are they after her?

My Thoughts:
That’s paranoid thinking.”  (p. 84)

After all that Dr. Sarah Gordon had been through, I can understand why she would question her own judgement.  Loss with more trauma piled on top of it makes the reader feel as though Sarah has had more than her fair share of bad things thrown her way.  But, at the point she thinks she is getting paranoid…well, let’s just say she will have more reasons than ever to be paranoid and just plain scared out of her mind by the end of the novel!

Richard Mabry has a knack for building suspense in his novels from the very first page.  Sarah Gordon makes a compelling main character, because readers will identify with her longing to move forward and begin to recover from a devastating loss. Her anxiety and anger toward God is realistic, and when her hour of desperation comes, that too is believable and heart felt.

The only thing that seemed a tad out of balance in the novel are the number of men ready to jump into her life and become the focus of her interest.  Maybe a nice problem for a grieving widow to have, but I’d be as cautious of the line of men queuing up in my phone calls as I would be of the person who was obviously stalking me! (just my own paranoia peeping through, I guess!)  Anyway, the men that become so abundant in Sarah’s life also have believable points of entry, and I’m thankful her ability to feel Holy Spirit’s nudge toward one of her possible suitors was plain!

This is a suspenseful, quick read that is perfect for the beach or any other vacation location! Pick up you copy HERE today!  You won’t be disappointed!
