  • Oh My Goodness!

    Oh my Goodness! I have never been so glad to finish a book in my life. Do No Harm by Christina McDonald was the paramount of nail bitters. This book brought a heavy blanket of doom to my life. Even as I tried to go to sleep last night, I couldn't get the feeling off my chest that something was wrong.  Something was wrong alright! Everything was wrong. The doctor who took a hipocratic oath, married to a police detective gets involved in selling opioid prescriptions to fund the life saving treatment for her son with a rare cancer. How far would you go to save your child? The book raises that question in your mind. Honestly, I couldn't think that far. I was so wrapped up in all the lies and cover up There were times I had to take a break because my heart was racing, my mind was racing and I simply had to slow it all down.  If you love a good Psychological Thriller, then this book is for you. I loved the first two books by Christina McDonald but, I have to say she has knocked this one out of the park. This was not only a home run it was a grand slam. You'll be hearing the cheers for this novel. Take my word for it!  I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley for a fair and honest review. Thank you!

  • Do No Harm

    've really enjoyed Christina McDonald's books until Do No Harm. Ms McDonald tells the story mostly in our "heroine's" voice. Unfortunately I couldn't connect with this main character. To me Emma was unbelievably selfish, really thinking of no one except herself. I want to thank NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for an early copy to review

  • I love this story

    Christina McDonald is amazing. She writes books that grab the reader from the first work, pulls them as the story continues, and keeps them unable to stop reading. Do No Harm is a story that tells of the horrors of the opioid crisis in the US. The deaths of opioid addicts is something that every town is experiencing, even the little towns. Emma is facing the toughest obstacle of her life. Her little boy, Josh, has been diagnosed with cancer and insurance will not cover all the costs. The town comes together to help her family pay for the treatment, but it is not enough. She is a doctor, she sees death daily, and knows what opioids can do if taken without medical direction. The decisions she makes are not always the good choices, but are they the right choices? Emma’s husband, Nate, is a police officer that is working to bring down the opioid dealers. He follows leads, puts together clues, knowing that he must solve this case to get the promotion that would earn him more money. Money he needs to help pay for his son’s treatments. I respected how hard he worked, how he had to make decisions based on the law, his heart, and what was best for his family. I am not sure I can convey how much I loved this story. A doctors motto is Do No Harm but when faced with saving her son or keeping her motto it is not so much of a cut and dry choice.

  • Crafty, addictive, and exceptionally twisty!

    Do No Harm is a consuming, action-packed thrill ride that takes you into the life of physician Emma Sweeney as she puts her marriage, career, and life in jeopardy to do whatever it takes, including selling forged prescriptions for opioids to drug dealers, to pay for her five-year-old son’s experimental treatment that could potentially save his life from a rare, aggressive form of leukemia. The writing is gritty and intense. The characters are distressed, impulsive, and determined. And the plot told from two different perspectives is an ominous tale of life, love, deception, familial dynamics, desperation, lies, ethics, morality, drug abuse, tragedy, violence, and murder. Overall, Do No Harm is a well-crafted, gripping, relentless tale by McDonald that reminds us just how far a mother will go to save her child and is definitely one of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read in a long time.

  • I'm Here for You

    How much would any mother sacrifice for the life of their child? Is their ever a time when the end justifies the means? Is there a black and white for everything or is there that grey area and if it does are there lighter and darker shades of grey? Emma has the perfect life. She is a doctor married to a detective with a beautiful son. Than it happens and her life isn’t perfect anymore, her life becomes a nightmare. Her son Josh I’d diagnosed with Leukemia and the treatment he needs is beyond their financial reach. The insurance covers almost nothing. She has to find a way to save her son’s life. Emma has a brother , Ben, that is into drugs, using, dealing the whole nine yards. Emma contacts his friend Gabe in hopes of contacting her brother. She thinks that selling a few prescriptions could get her some money for Josh’s treatment. This is when her life spirals out of control. Drugs, murder, and betrayal follow. This is a book about the opioid crisis, how people are dragged into it, the ugliness, and the grey area’s. Is there an answer to the craziness? This book made me think and I thought what would I do to save the life of my child? I am sure it will make you think as well. I don’t know the answers, but I hope someday someone finds the answers. I would recommend this book to everyone, especially every parent. Thanks to Christina McDonald, Gallery Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
