The Good Doctor

Jessica Payne

Mystery Thriller

I finally have everything I’ve ever wanted: a career saving lives, my dream home among the pines, and my caring fiancé, Elton. He doesn’t know about my past. And I’ll do anything to keep it that way…

I’m so excited for my life with Elton—we’ve even discussed which room would make the perfect nursery. And we’re working together in our new jobs in the ICU at Portland General hospital.

But when I walk in on my first day, I see my ex-husband Jameson. His familiar broad shoulders are unmistakable in his white doctor’s coat. The shock knocks the air from my lungs.

I’m thrown back to the moment Jameson and I gathered around that hospital bed as the steady beeping on the monitor slowed.

We did something unforgivable that day.
And for the first time, I saw who Jameson truly was.
The truth scared me more than I can explain.
So I ran.

If Jameson tells Elton what I did, I’ll lose everything. Will he destroy my new, perfect life? Is he still a danger to the innocent patients all around us? And how far will I have to go to stop him?

The Good Doctor is a totally twisty, rollercoaster ride of a psychological thriller that will have you glued to the pages late into the night. Fans of Freida McFadden, My Lovely Wife and The Couple Next Door will love it!

My Opinion

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5) This was a book that I had a hard time putting down. Not only is the subject of doctor-assisted suicide controversial but the mystery was just as intriguing.

As the story unfolds, there are unexpected twists that surprised me! There were many and it kept me flipping pages quickly. Not only was it entertaining, but the reality of it was astounding too. I believe that along with the great twists, characters and the outstanding ending that many are going to love this one just as much as I did.

General content summary: F words = 17, fatal illness, doctor assisted suicide, intimacy (closed door, multiple, few details), foster care (previous), parental deaths (car crash, previous), blood, patient care and deaths (some details, multiple), ALS and symptoms, details of a physician assisted suicide where the patient reacted badly, sitting with someone taking their last breaths, knife death (previous, few details), infidelity.
