Hart and Drake
review 1: This is definitely a better than average detective who-dunnit mystery. Ms. Lyons is an actual doctor who works in an ER, and therefore the story has a great deal of authenticity. There were enough possible perps to make the mystery interesting, and the eventual/actual perp was a logical choice, and at the same time, not one that I was able to guess. The love scenes between Hart and Drake were reasonable erotic, and yet not too obtrusive. My one complaint about the book is that there were a number of errors in grammar and syntax, so that some serious editing was needed. I always look for the chance to learn something when reading, and that is why I usually lean toward historical fiction. In this book, there was no hint of that, but the ER scenes were realisti... morec enough so that it was possible to learn something about medicine. I give this a rating of 7 out of 10.
review 2: OK, I couldn't resist - a book (first in a series) by a PEM doctor-turned-author. About 2/3 of the way through. A little heavy on the sensual romance for me, but the medicine is real and accurate (inaccurate medicine in entertainment drives me crazy). At times I think the "heroine" is being downright silly. A fun, fast-paced book for the summer, but not sure if I'm going to be reading any more of these. less
