Stress Test by Richard L. Mabry, M.D.

About the Book
They may not have enough evidence to convict him, but they have enough to ruin his life.
Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left his last shift in the ER have no such plans—they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is escape. He does so, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU . . . where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder.
Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors. But when Matt calls, she knows she can’t walk away from defending someone who is truly innocent.
Matt’s career is going down the drain. His freedom and perhaps his life may be next. But with the police convinced he’s a murderer and the kidnappers still trying to finish what they started, finding the truth—and the faith to keep going—will be the toughest stress test Matt has ever endured.

My Thoughts
I was a little worried going into this book since I get grossed out very easily and the main character of this story was a doctor. But the story-line intrigued me enough to risk it and I'm glad I did. There were a couple scenes that had me cringing but I just kinda sped through them and I was fine. I ended up really enjoying the book. The plot was as good as I'd hoped it would be and the characters were really well done. Sorry that this review is so short, but I just couldn't come up with anything else to say!
