Dr. Leigh Stathos likes her ER shifts fast, furious, and adrenaline-infused—“Treat ’em and street ’em”—with no emotional complications. Life’s taught her a soul-rending lesson: nothing lasts forever, including marriage. And the clock is ticking toward the end of hers. Then an unwelcome confrontation with “the other woman” begins a whole new set of lessons.
San Francisco police officer Nick Stathos never gives up, whether protecting his patrol neighborhood, holding fast to faith—or trying to save his marriage. Seven days is all he has to reach Leigh’s heart. But when a desperate act of violence slams Golden Gate Mercy Hospital into lockdown, it starts a chain of events that will change lives forever.
I've heard such awesome things about this series that I was thrilled when Tyndale sent me this book to review.
This is a very realistically written hospital drama (some scenes had me on the edge of my chair wondering what would happen next while another section detailed a patient's allergy problems). It had these great characters that I truly was pulling for, realistic problems and struggles that they had been facing up to this point and even into their seven days and even some mystery.
I think I liked Nick best. Before you ask, no it didn't have a thing to do with the fact that he's a great cook, brave, good with kids, and have you looked at that cover? :op lol
If I was nit-picking, I would have to say I thought the time line wasn't realistic. A lot is packed into seven short days and without giving away the ending, that's about all I can say on that subject. The writing was first rate and even the secondary characters were outstanding.
This was a great book for people who love hospital dramas especially. If you would like to have this book for your very own, then please leave a comment with your email.
