I just finished another winner.
Code Blue is the debut novel in Dr. Richard Mabry’s new Prescription for Trouble series.
Dr. Cathy Sewell has returned to her home town to set up practice as a general practitioner. Whatever can go wrong, does. She’s in a serious accident when a black SUV runs her off the road. The hospital stalls her request for privileges to admit and treat her patients there. The other doctors in town are skeptical of her skills, especially when a patient claims malpractice. The bank has second thoughts about the money they loaned her to get her practice up and running.
Cathy has more than the present issues weighing on her. She left town with personal problems and they seem to crowd her as well. She has to learn how to make peace with her past before she can deal with the present.
Mabry writes with medical knowledge gleaned from a career practicing and teaching medicine. He does a great job writing a female protagonist, as well.
The suspense builds naturally as Cathy learns someone does indeed want her out of town. Or dead. She finds the strength and the faith to face her problems and resolve them.
My prescription for your fiction fix: Get Code Blue and read it “stat.”
Currently reading: Today, I picked up three (3!!) books I had on hold at the library. I think I’ll start with The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.
Last movie: Haven’t seen one recently…
Praying for: Amy, Leigh Steinberg, Taryn
