Critical Condition: A Blog Tour and Review

About The Book:

Dr. Frasier couldn’t save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she’s fighting for her own life.
It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier’s colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again.
Her “almost-fiancé” Dr. Mark Gilbert’s support only adds to Shannon’s feelings of guilt, since she can’t bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he’s just been diagnosed with leukemia.
Shannon thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, “What did he say before he died?”
With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.

My Review:
I loved this book! 
If you are looking for a spine-tingling, can't-put-down, thriller that will have you checking over your shoulder and reading late into the night...this is the book for you.
I have now read several of author, Dr. Richard Mabry's novels and each one has been better than the last, with this definitely one of my favorites for sure. 
The action begins within the first couple pages of chapter one and does not let up ever. The characters, with all their quirks, faults and distinct personalities, are very nicely developed and the story lines (yes, there are a couple that intertwine, but nicely) are well-written, and flow nicely. All the questions about "who-dun-it" will be answered by the end of the book (through me for a loop, and I quite enjoyed that) and I cannot wait to see what comes next from this author.
BUY IT: You can purchase Critical Condition online here. It is also available through your favorite local Christian book retailer from Thomas Nelson
