Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all those who lost their lives, defending our freedoms.
Last month’s Read with Ariesgrl was a bit of a disappointment, thanks to Barnes and Noble not sharing the final chapter in their serial read selection. For the month of June, I decided to dive into my never-ending wish list to find a good suspense/mystery read. I have narrowed it down to The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry and Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. Both titles are the first in a series and each have their own unique spin on suspense. We have a couple of days left before June 1st, to decide. So which one of these titles sounds like a fun June read to you?
It can be difficult to read a book from an app on my computer, so several weeks ago, when there were fireworks and I needed my Nook to play Ozzy’s calming music at night, I was wide awake and decided to read an ebook that was on my Nook. My friend Dana, who you may remember designed my amazing logo, recommended the author Kim Harrison to me. A while back, I downloaded the first book in the series, while it was on sale. Here are my thoughts:
By: Peter Rizzolo. Format: Paperback. Read: March 2014.
Dr. Ken Benholtz has spent his career at the Children’s Hospital working to preserve organs for transplant. His job becomes more personal when his nephew is admitted and is in desperate need for a heart, around the same time that his research funds are cut. He decides to take matters into his own hands by illegally harvesting cadaver organs. This is the story of the medical and legal consequences of his decision.
This story seems to have it all… young children in need of life-saving organs, details of both the medical and legal worlds and it is packed full of suspense and intrigue. Though this book covers an intense topic and technical jargon, the plot allows it to be a fast and enjoyable read. Rizzolo does an amazing job of blurring the lines between the good guy and the evil guy. Readers will be questioning how far they would go, to save a child’s life.
How do you like your medical fiction books? Do you like them to read like a compelling thriller or a heart-wrenching story, or somewhere in between?
