BLOG TOUR - The Good Doctor


I finally have everything I’ve ever wanted: a career saving lives, my dream home among the pines, and my caring fiancĂ©, Elton. He doesn’t know about my past. And I’ll do anything to keep it that way…

I’m so excited for my life with Elton—we’ve even discussed which room would make the perfect nursery. And we’re working together in our new jobs in the ICU at Portland General hospital.
But when I walk in on my first day, I see my ex-husband Jameson. His familiar broad shoulders are unmistakable in his white doctor’s coat. The shock knocks the air from my lungs.
I’m thrown back to the moment Jameson and I gathered around that hospital bed as the steady beeping on the monitor slowed.
We did something unforgivable that day.

And for the first time, I saw who Jameson truly was.

The truth scared me more than I can explain.

So I ran.

If Jameson tells Elton what I did, I’ll lose everything. Will he destroy my new, perfect life? Is he still a danger to the innocent patients all around us? And how far will I have to go to stop him?

The Good Doctor is a totally twisty, rollercoaster ride of a psychological thriller that will have you glued to the pages late into the night. Fans of Freida McFadden,
My Lovely Wife and The Couple Next Door will love it!

The latest book by Jessica Payne is full of surprise twists that had me turning page after page. In fact, this book was another stunning and shocking one-sitting read. 

The Good Doctor includes a sensitive subject with regard to Chloe Woods’ ex-husband and his medical practices. Chloe not only had successfully left him and divorced him, she has a rewarding job as a nurse practitioner and a loving partner, and is in fact now engaged. Taking on her newest job, including buying a new home, Chloe shockingly learns that she will working alongside her ex. 

Chloe is plagued with guilt and regret from actions that occurred while she was still married, and seeing her ex-husband daily brings those difficult feelings front and center. One of her newest responsibilities is collating medical records that pertain to numerous patient deaths. Chloe’s problems are beginning all over again. 

Just when I thought I knew was happening, I found myself surprised and this was more than once. Definitely looking forward to Jessica Payne’s next book. 
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
