    Team Becky or Team Meghan? Couldn't decide!

    In the acknowledgements for Saving Meghan, author D. J. Palmer writes, “I am here to entertain, enthrall, and thrill you, and to that end, I hope I have exceeded your expectations – wildly so at that.” Well done, D. J. Palmer. Saving Meghan is one wild ride from start to finish. From the very first page, I was swinging back and forth from Team Meghan to Team Becky and sometimes to Team Carl. Nobody made a good first impression, but everybody eventually got my sympathy. Becky was a manipulative, sneaky liar and could be very cold, but there was no doubt she loved her daughter more than anything. Meghan wasn’t really a sweet innocent teen, but whether she was making herself sick or Becky was causing it, she was in agony much of the time and her life as a smart, active high schooler had all but disappeared. Carl almost seemed like a victim at times. There was something between Carl and Meghan – something she saw? Something he did?? To her??? But it seemed apparent he wanted his daughter to be normal and well and was beginning to worry that there may be something seriously wrong with his wife. Carl, Becky and Meghan are a family, but a family with secrets and lies and suspicions. And everyone they interact with seems to have an ulterior motive, a hidden agenda. Saving Meghan is riveting and the plot moves at a lightning pace, full of danger and suspense. There are plenty of twists, and twisted relationships, that had me guessing – incorrectly – until the very end. I kept changing my mind about who could be at fault or what was really happening, and even though I knew it wasn’t likely I kept hoping for the fairy-tale ending with one big happy family on the final page. D. J. Palmer does an excellent job of keeping you engaged and making your sympathies change almost from page to page. Thanks for St. Martin’s Press for providing an advance copy for me to read and review. I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend it. #SavingMeghan #ProtectMeghan #BelieveBecky

    Wow!!!!

    This is one of the best books I’ve read in quite a while. Meghan is a fifteen year old girl whose life has been plagued by illness. The doctors seem unable to find the cause of her symptom and now her illness seems worse. Her mother Becky is desperate to find a cure for these illnesses, yet her father Carl seems to be getting more and more impatient with them and the situation. Trying different doctors and facilities doesn’t seem to work. In the meantime, it is taking quite a toll on Becky and Carl’s marriage. I could feel Becky’s desperation and frustration. Then came the ending and it completely blew me away! I had my own opinion about what could be happening but in no way could I figure out what the ending would be and how shocking it was. I highly recommend this book!

    We are often bound to repeat our parents' mistakes

    Becky grew up as a pawn, used by her mother to help deceive officials and Doctors so she could continue to claim her disability checks. A grown woman now, mother to her own sick child, she is constantly searching out answers to solve her daughter, Meghan's mysterious and unnamed disease. But to what lengths would a mother go to save her child? How far would she go to protect her? And at what point does it come into question? This book will keep you teetering from one side to the other... #ProtectMeghan or #BelieveBecky. I was clueless from page one... never wanting to believe a mother could hurt her child, yet the unanswered questions and odd timing kept me guessing until the final pages. Love, betrayal, and secrets... I couldn't put this one down- Highly recommended!!

    Legally Bound

    This starts out fairly slowly; I wasn't sure I was even going to be interested. But as the plot unfolded and the story enveloped me, I found myself sucked in, turning pages ever faster, while my brain tried to get ahead of the tale to figure out what was going on. The need for instant action to protect the innocent can create massive injustices to all parties. Lack of sufficiently trained personnel to investigate and verify claims makes the appalling actions permitted by law that much more flagrant. This nice, solid, medical thriller explores a number of areas not generally known--I love when a book teaches me new things!

    Medical drama

    Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer is a medical drama injected with many twists and turns. Fifteen-year-old Meghan is the daughter of Becky and Carl Gerard. For years she has been plagued by mysterious illnesses which have baffled numerous physicians and divided her parents when it comes to deciding what to do. When her health deteriorates further, doctors and social workers begin to suspect Becky of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, meaning that the parent makes her child sick on purpose to gain attention and admiration. What could be the cause of Meghan's ill health? Just when the reader thinks the mystery is solved, something or someone else moves the story into another direction. Saving Meghan will keep you entertained and guessing until the last page. Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.
