  • A Fabulous Beginning To A New Series

    This book is the first instalment in the Jessie Novak series written by Roberta Gately, set in Boston, Massachusetts. Married couple Rob and Ann Hart are out and about when a man approaches them and shoots, hitting Rob in his side and Ann in the head, but when the emergency dispatcher asks Rob to check whether or not Ann's breathing, there's no answer and the line goes dead with a click. Meanwhile, Emergency Room Triage Nurse Jessie Novak is just about to clock off when the paramedics radio to inform Boston City Hospital of their ETA. Jessie quickly assembles the trauma team and the surgeon on duty, and later, when she goes to leave the trauma area, police, reporters and others are blocking the corridor. Jessie's friend, Detective Sam Dallas is in charge of the investigation. Dead Girl Walking was a compelling read and I was soon wholly absorbed in the storyline. Being an ER Nurse gave Jessie a bit of an edge and she was a little different to your average protagonist. I liked Jessie's intelligence, astuteness and keen sense of observation. This novel for me was primarily a police procedural with a sharp amateur sleuth at its heart, whose job provided a great vantage point to oversee anyone admitted with injuries that might give cause for suspicion. This novel was a wicked and exciting thriller where no one could be trusted, with dangerous situations crossing boundaries between Jessie’s working and personal life. It was so good and I can't wait for book two! I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Bookouture via NetGalley at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • A good start to a new series

    Dead Girl Walking is the first book in a new series featuring Jessie Novak, a Emergency Room Triage Nurse as its lead. Set in Boston Massachusetts, the story follows Jessie’s quest for answers after a beautiful woman is bought into the emergency room, with a gunshot. Who would do this? Why? The story has been well plotted, executed and with Roberta Gately bringing her own knowledge as a nurse to the table, this makes for an interesting medical drama crossed with a crime thriller. The mystery itself plays out well and kept me on my toes and while there are no big shocks or surprises, still made for an entertaining read. Jessie’s character has been written very well. She is smart, gutsy and has good instincts. While there were no big surprises, there were plenty of distractions for Jessie, first and foremost, her love life. Can Jessie find the find balance in her life? And a killer? What I like most about this book and what initially drew me to it, was that Jessie is an Emergency Room Triage Nurse and not a police detective as is normally the case with these types of stories. Her role puts her front and centre into the thick of things and brings a refreshing change, with a different point of view. Dead Girl Walking is a strong start to a new series. The prologue kicks things off in spectacular fashion and from there it hits the ground running, never letting up on its frantic pace until the final page. The story is interesting, the characters are real and relatable, the writing is sharp and I look forward to seeing the direction the series takes next.

  • Interesting New Female Protagonist!

    Dead Girl Walking by Roberta Gately is the first book in her Jessie Novak series. As an ER nurse, Jessie Novak is both observer and participant. She’s a smart new female protagonist, even though she’s not the usual cop/former cop or private investigator. I warmed to her personality as the story and her background details evolved. The story is well-written and the plot is engaging. Some of the elements are predictable, but I still enjoyed this mystery and will read any future installments to follow Jessie’s development. My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    Thanks for your feedback!
