Medical Judgement by Richard L. Mabry, MD + Giveaway

Title:  Medical Judgement
Author:  Richard Mabry, M.D.
Publisher:  Abingdon Press
Release Date:  May 17, 2016
Genre: Medical Drama/Suspense

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?

Dr. Richard Mabry have the suspense level down pat.  It keeps you guessing until the very end, and Medical Judgment was just that.  You might have guessed the player(s) involved, but you really won't know until the very end. The twists that comes up will have you second guessing and sometimes even if you have it right, the reason and the process may not be what you had surmise. A short 265 pages of speculation, but satisfying enough.

I will say that none of the characters struck a chord with me.  In fact, I wasn't too thrill with any of them, even Sarah. Though Sarah's emotional state is understandable, her paranoia and progression didn't seem reasonable.  The romance was minor, even though it played quite a role between our three main characters, and the romantic conclusion was surprising, which I really didn't see coming.

The true mystery of this novel definitely was suspenseful and follows this genre perfectly, though I couldn't say for sure the conundrum we feel towards the characters and the final romance was intended or not. Either way, I'm not sure if it is a good thing or not, but as a whole, Medical Judgment gave me the anticipation of a "what to come" & "who done it" story of suspense. And that is what makes suspense worth reading.
