Dr. Anna McIntyre's life was going along just fine until suddenly everything seemed to go wrong for her. First, one of her patients die because of an identity mix-up, then the authorities come after her because of forged prescriptions, and after that she discovers her credit is in ruins as someone used her credit cards without her knowing. Her troubles just keep piling up, and she can't figure out what is going on. There are two men who are willing to listen and help; Dr. Nick Valentine, who works at the same hospital, and Attorney Ross Donovan, who is the man she hires to help her out of her mess. As Anna digs deeper on her own to discover who's behind the identity thefts, she will discover that someone out there doesn't like what she is doing. Finally, when her life is on the line, Anna will discover the truth. The real question is though, which man in her life will she reach out to when her life is on the line.

This was a good mystery and intrigue story and I would not have guessed how this all came about, but after finding out how it all happened it was a little scary to think about. Another good book in this series. These stories are written as stand alone stories and can be read in any order. ( )

I enjoyed the medical setting of this book and the complication of a doctor's stolen identity was an interesting 'what if' to consider. The two main male characters and their appeal to Dr. Anna McIntyre kept the romance part of the plot moving along—sort of (for me it was one of those books where I skimmed over the 'romantic' parts because they felt predictable and cheesy.)

I enjoyed the mystery aspect of puzzling out who had stolen Anna's I.D. and was truly concerned for the attractive leading lady when the guns came out (i.e. the suspense moniker = well earned).

Much was made of Anna's Christian faith, in that it was mentioned repeatedly, and yet it didn't seem to make a great deal of difference in how she handled her problems or chose her man.

All in all, the authentic medical milieu is what would entice me to read more Mabry books. ( )

Title: Medical Error (Prescription for Trouble #2)
Author: Richard L. Mabry, M.D.
Pages: 262
Year: 2010
Publisher: Abingdon Press
This is the second book in Richard Mabry’s Prescription for Trouble series. The first book is titled, Code Blue and was reviewed here previously. This story is set in Texas, which is also where the author lives. His experiential knowledge lends great detail and information to the story.
Nick Valentine is a pathologist, trying to gain a promotion to assistant professor at a medical school. He receives an order for an autopsy of a patient to be done stat. Don’t all doctors want that? He performs the autopsy, but has some questions when he is finished. He contacts the doctor who had ordered the autopsy and they agree to meet. Once he lays eyes on Dr. Anna McIntyre, Nick decides he would like more than a professional acquaintance. He asks if he can help her with some other problems she is dealing with and she agrees. Soon he is spending much more time with Anna and thinks they have the potential for a serious relationship. Anna just wants to be friends until her problems are solved. Is she just saying that so she can pursue a relationship with her attorney instead of Nick?
Anna McIntyre is due to complete her residency in a month. She had a job all lined up, but that was suddenly pulled out from under her. She unexpectedly has a patient die and some blame her. Someone is using her name and DEA number to prescribe narcotics, someone has used her credit cards fraudulently, her car breaks down and she must hire an attorney as she faces more and more serious legal problems with arrest looming on the horizon. Due to these problems, she is temporarily suspended and charged by her attending physician with finding out who is prescribing these drugs. She enlists Nick’s help. She and her attorney both find each other attractive, but neither act on this. Anna discovers she has feelings for Nick, but the timing couldn’t be worse. The police are breathing down her neck, thinking she really is the one prescribing the drugs and just angry she got caught. Is someone framing her? Is there a connection between her identity theft and her dead patient?
The storyline had the potential to be really good; however, I found this not to be true at the end of the book. It was just average. Nick’s behavior toward Anna sometimes borders on stalking. There is not enough suspense and tension to create a feeling of anticipation for what’s going to happen next. The story drags a bit. I found the characters to be a bit shallow. There was a good plot twist at the end. I’ve read other books by this author that are better, and I still plan to read the next book in this series, Diagnosis Death.
My rating is 3 stars.

I grabbed this e-book when it was free for my nook. I didn’t read it right away, but when I finally had time I really enjoyed this inspirational medical based story. There were a few problems with word spacing and dropped letters, but I don’t know if it was book editing or e-book formatting problems. It didn’t bother me, but I know some find it annoying.

The story is about a female doctor whose life is spiraling out of control when her identity is stolen. She is a woman of faith and therefore her decisions and daily life reflect that faith. In fact, at one point I was disappointed in a decision she made only to realize that her decisions was the morally right one. What was I thinking! The story is not “preachy”, but just part of her life.

I thought it was a good story and will definitely read more by this author. ( )

You probably will enjoy this book if you're a Christian who likes to believe everyone is a Christian and that any wayward sheep can be brought back into the fold. I tried the free Kindle edition, and I realized it was free because the author hopes to promote Christianity.

He did have a clever idea for a plot - the use of stolen identity through mail theft and use of those identities to obtain drugs and health services (insurance is a big problem in America!) - but the prose was sappy and weak, and the relationships between the characters trite and predictable, not to mention the unsubtle sermonizing. I appreciate the plot idea, but would have preferred to read it in a sentence or two. ( )
