This was a good book. It definitely falls into my 3 star category. I can comfortably say it was written well, had a good story line, and I had no issue with the character development. I enjoyed the book and it certainly kept me turning the pages. If asked, I would definitely tell others it is worth reading. The thing is, I’m just not jumping up and down over it.
I’m not going to lie, I guessed very early on who pushed her. That didn’t ruin the book for me in any way, but I did feel that I’ve kind of read this topic a few times before, and maybe that’s why I’m not as excited about this novel as a lot of the other reviewers have been. Being a medical professional the subject of keeping the patient alive due to the pregnancy was very intriguing to me and I can honestly say I would have liked to read a little more about that, but maybe that wasn’t appropriate for all readers.
I would say if you are looking for a quick read that isn’t something you have to seriously concentrate on, this is definitely one for you. It’s enjoyable, well written, not difficult to follow, and does not leave you wanting to throw the book onto the street hoping a UPS truck runs it over when you are finished. I will read from Ms. McDonald again.
