about the book

Dr. Tyler Gentry had it all planned out, but the death of his parents in a plane crash changed everything. When he discovered his father had left him a mountain of debt, piled on top of his own student debt, the offer from Dr. William Hall to join his group of surgeons seemed a perfect solution. But the night before he was to start, Tyler received a call that told him to get out while he could.

Despite the salary and perks, Tyler found a curtain of mystery surrounding the surgical group. The only thing that made it worthwhile was the lovely operating room nurse, Ashley Wynn, with whom Tyler seemed to make an instant connection. But when their first date ended with his car exploding while she watched, Ashley seemed hesitant to continue their relationship.

The stakes continued to rise while Tyler was faced with his dilemma: stay or go?

GENRE: Inspirational Medical Mystery/Suspense
RELEASE DATE: March 13, 2017
PAGES: 140

Doctor’s Dilemma, the latest medical suspense novella from Dr. Richard Mabry, starts out with an ominous phone call and keeps the tension high until the end.  It has it all – suspense, mystery, romance, faith. Not to mention the medical setting and the tension and intrigue that surrounds Tyler Gentry’s new job.

This is a fairly quick read, but it’s packed with several twists I wasn’t anticipating. The fast pace keeps readers on the edge of their favorite reading chairs, the suspense seamlessly trading places with the romance when appropriate. A clear but gentle subthread of faith supports the story as well as Ashley and Tyler, and Dr. Mabry’s medical background adds credibility to the characters and their discussions.

Bottom Line: Doctor’s Dilemma by Dr. Richard Mabry is the perfect choice for an evening in or a weekend read. High tension and riveting suspense reel you in, and the intrigue surrounding the medical group keeps you guessing. Sweet romance and nudges of faith temper the drama and engage you with the characters. A slight (tongue-in-cheek) warning, however: The next time your surgeon is running late, you might recall the events from Doctor’s Dilemma and be understandably concerned.

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / Love it!

    I have not read any of Richard’s books that I dint love. Suspense, a puzzle to solve and romance. What’s not to love! By all means catch up on reading his books!
