I’m digging back into 2020 for today’s first line.
About the Book
When Dr. Libby Holman’s favorite patient, Sophia Romano, nearly dies after a routine dose of chemotherapy, Libby has more than a hunch the drug somehow got contaminated with a dangerous toxin at the factory. After all, Sophia tolerated the first five cycles of chemo without a hitch. Sophia’s son, prosecuting attorney Marcus Romano, isn’t buying Libby’s lame excuse. Not one bit. He suspects Libby botched up the dose calculation and thereby overdosed his mother’s chemo. Can you spell L-A-W-S-U-I-T? Is it malpractice, a manufacturing mishap, … or something far more sinister? Libby and Marcus struggle to work together, hampered by her fear of malpractice and his suspicion of medical incompetence. Despite their mutual mistrust, they find themselves attracted to one another. When Libby’s life gets threatened by a man from her past, they race to uncover the truth before Libby, or more patients, get harmed. Will they also discover love? Stir in a rambunctious Labradoodle puppy and Marcus’s old fiancé and the stakes are high.
