About the Book:
Overcoming these odds will take more than a miracle drug—it will take a miracle.
The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovers why—his patients, including the former President of the United States, have been dosed with a different strain of the original virus, one that is universally fatal. The only chance for survival is treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.
As if treating the President of the United States isn’t stressful enough, the situation goes from bad to worse when Rachel Moore, a nurse Josh is falling in love with, falls ill. With the nation’s eyes on him, Josh must pull off a miracle to save a man who holds a good deal of power and the woman who holds his heart.

About the Author:
Dr. Richard Mabry is a retired physician who writes “medical suspense with heart.” His novels have won multiple awards: a semifinalist for International Thriller Writers’ debut novel; finalists for the Carol Award, Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award, and Romantic Times’ Reader’s Choice Award; and both finalist and winner of the Selah Award. “Miracle Drug” is his ninth published novel. He and his wife live in Frisco, Texas.
I really enjoy Richard Mabry’s writing and this one was no different, although this one did seem a bit slower than some of his others and took me a little longer to get in to, it proved worth it to stay with the book and keep reading. Maybe because I’m used to reading medical books and journals some of the terms and the constant explanations got on my nerves a little bit, but I also recognize not everyone will know or be familiar with some medical terminology. Again, like in his other books there is the criminal aspect but nothing is so gruesome that would be stomach turning and of course, because he lives up to the name of Christian fiction, no cussing or sex scenes. Dr. Josh Pearson is a widower trying to figure out life and how a new girlfriend fits into that without being unfaithful to his wife’s memory as well as being personal physician to a former President of the United States.
Like I said, the book was slow moving at first but I’m glad I kept with it as it really turned into a page turner and one that I’m glad I read – the whodunit aspect had me guessing until I had it all pieced together which was about the same time as the characters began putting it all together. The end is neatly wrapped up with justice being served and happily ever after – which at this point in my life I prefer as I have enough messy in my real life. If you enjoy suspense novels either from a medical viewpoint or not this is another great one from Mabry and if you’re just looking for a Christian fiction book and not having to wonder what you’ll encounter when you turn the page, this is the book for you.
