“You are not going to want to miss Dr. Richard Mabry’s newest thrill ride!”

--USA Today on Stress Test


When her fiancé’s dangerous secrets turn her world upside-down, a beautiful doctor must choose between her own safety and the man she loves—and thought she knew.


Dr. Carrie Markham’s heart was broken by the death of her husband two years ago. Now, just as her medical practice is taking off, her fresh engagement to paralegal Adam Davidson seems almost too good to be true . . . until a drive-by shooting leaves Carrie on the floor of his car with glass falling around her.

When he confesses that Adam isn’t his real name and that he fled the witness protection program, Carrie is left with an impossible choice: should she abandon the fiancé she isn’t sure she really knows, or accept his claim of innocence and help him fight back against this faceless menace?

While Carrie struggles to decide whether to follow her heart or her head, the threats against them continue to escalate. Her life—as well as Adam’s—depends on making the right choice . . . and the clock is ticking.


Dr. Richard L. Mabry retired from medicine after a distinguished career as a respected clinician, teacher, writer, and researcher. His previous works have been finalists for the Carol Award and Romantic Times Reader’s Choice Award, and have won the Selah Award.

Review by Susanne
A little suspense, a little mystery, a little romance, a little about faith and medicine is what this book presented to me. When Dr. Carrie Markham becomes engaged to paralegal Adam Davidson, she has finally come to a place in her life where she can move on from her past. But at a time when they should be happiest Adam's past has come to haunt them and put her in the cross hairs of someone trying to kill them. As they work to try to figure out who that person could be, Carrie is also challenged to renew the faith she left behind when her husband died. The description on the back of the book really piqued my interest but unfortunately it took until past the middle of the book for it to really start to grab my attention. Not to say that it is a bad story, it's not, but for whatever reason, it just didn't really hold my attention well until that point. When it finally did, though, I did find it hard to put down until who was threatening them finally was revealed. Just when I thought I had it figured out there were twists and more suspects thrown into the combination of characters. So a bit of a slow start to this one but I did end up enjoying the second half of the book.

Thanks to BookSneeze for providing this book free of charge for my honest review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review. (Posted on 12/18/13)
