From the back cover:
When her fiancé’s dangerous secrets turn her work 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.
Even a medical doctor with a clear-thinking head on her shoulders has trouble knowing who to trust when her life is in danger. Carrie and Adam have a problem to solve, and time is not on their side.
Heart Failure pits well-rounded characters against some evil, yet unknown, entity in a struggle for their lives, with perfectly paced action to create a page-turner which kept me guessing until the end.
I especially enjoyed the “hero” in Adam. He didn’t think he would get married, until he met Carrie. Now that she is in his life, he is determined not to let her go or see her hurt, no matter the cost. Sometimes the stakes are quite high, but he takes a stand in an effort to protect her.
Both Carrie and Adam are characters you want to see win. Characters with passions and fears, struggles and dreams. Subtly, throughout the story, God is at work in their hearts and lives, ultimately showing them they can trust Him when they fear they can’t trust anyone.
Go ahead and set aside your other responsibilities for a while. Heart Failure will keep you rooted until the last page!
