From the New York Times bestselling author of Blind Faith comes the first book in the Angels of Mercy series—a gripping behind-the-scenes drama of four women who face life and death every day…
July 1st—Transition Day. The most dangerous day of the year. The day staff at Pittsburgh’s Angels of Mercy Hospital braces for the arrival of the cocky, untested new interns. It’s also the first day for L.A. transplant Dr. Lydia Fiore, the new ER attending physician. Not a good day to lose a patient—especially not the Chief of Surgery’s son. Now, to save her career, Lydia must discover the truth behind her patient’s death, even as it leads her into unfamiliar—and risky—territory.
At least she’s not alone. There’s med student Amanda, a sweet Southern belle with problems of her own; Gina, a resident with a chip on her shoulder; and Nora, the take-charge charge nurse with a cool head but a fiery temper. Not to mention the paramedic who’d like to try his bedside manner out on Lydia. The four women will learn to depend on each other in their fight to save lives—because sometimes everyone needs a lifeline…
Lifelines includes a teaser for the second Angels of Mercy novel, Warning Signs.
