Stress Test (Review)


My Thoughts:
Well this was an interesting book.  It moved a bit slow to me, needed more hints as to who and why all this was happening to Dr. Matt Newman.  I understand that suspense is supposed to build up to a big reveal, but a few more clues as to why all this was going on and who has behind it, would have helped make this story more enjoyable.  The last few chapters have the big reveal but after moving so slow earlier, I felt let down.  I really found the story line  with the lawyer a bit unbelievable. So my over all thoughts was there was not enough "hook"  to find it believable.  3 stars. 
This book was provided by BookSneeze for my honest thoughts and review of the book. 

About the Book:
THEY MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO CONVICT HIM, BUT THEY HAVE ENOUGH TO RUIN HIS LIFE.
Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans—they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU . . . where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder.
Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship. But when Matt calls, she knows she can’t walk away from defending someone who is truly innocent.
Matt’s career is going down the drain. His freedom and perhaps his life may be next. But with the police convinced he’s a killer and the kidnappers still trying to finish what they started, finding the truth—and the faith to keep going—will be the toughest stress test Matt has ever endured.
