Summary

Dr. Tyler Gentry had it all planned out, but the death of his parents in a plane crash changed everything. When he discovered his father had left him a mountain of debt, piled on top of his own student debt, the offer from Dr. William Hall to join his group of surgeons seemed a perfect solution. But the night before he was to start, Tyler received a call that told him to get out while he could.

Despite the salary and perks, Tyler found a curtain of mystery surrounding the surgical group. The only thing that made it worthwhile was the lovely operating room nurse, Ashley Wynn, with whom Tyler seemed to make an instant connection. But when their first date ended with his car exploding while she watched, Ashley seemed hesitant to continue their relationship.

The stakes continued to rise while Tyler was faced with his dilemma: stay or go?

Doctor’s Dilema

An interesting listen with a few nice twists. Not too much medical jargon, which makes it nice and easy to listen to. The few religious mentions feel a little shoehorned and didn’t really add to the story.
Really nicely narrated. Bill is great at presenting the tension and makes it really easy to listen to.
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.

Doctor's Dilemma

I really enjoyed this book. It was engaging and the pace is satisfying. The plot is complex, and was skillfully revealed in bits and pieces that engaged my interest throughout.
This is not the first time I have listened to performances by this narrator and he is very good. I did need some time to get used to his patterns of emphasis at first, but he is adept at providing distinct character voices throughout, something I believe is invaluable to a good audio production.

Great Read

Doctor's Dilemma was a great read by Richard L. Mabry. Everything changed for Dr. Tyler Gentry when his parents died in a plane crash. He found out that his father left him a mountain of debt, along with his own student debts. Dr. William Hall offers him to join his group of surgeons and it seems like a perfect solution to his problems. The night before he's supposed to start, he receives a call that told him to get out while he can. There is a curtain of mystery that surrounds the surgical group. The only thing that made it worthwhile was the operating room nurse, Ashley Wynn. They have an instant connection and on their first date, it ended in his car exploding. Ashley watched this happened and seemed hesitant to continue their relationship. I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Just ok

This was a short story about a doctor that gets into seemingly dangerous employment after trying to repay the debts his deceased parents left him. He has a romantic interest in a nurse that he works with, and life threatening situations add to the suspense. The story was ok, not my favourite, but I really enjoy the narrator.

"Next time it could be you."

Burdened by huge debts and, with the death of his parents, without job prospects, newly qualified surgeon Tyler is hugely relieved to be offered a position within the Hall Group. But all is not right within the practice. Then Hall is found dead in his home...
The story is intriguing, the writing, especially near the beginning, rather wooden, the narration by Bill Nevitt good. There is also a tentative romance and some Christian messaging, this latter restricted mostly to church attendance and a few pleas to God for help rather than preaching to the reader. Overall, a quick and easy read focussing more on the dilemma than anything medical.

I was fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of The Doctor's Dilemma, at my request, by the rights holder. Thank you.

Short and to the point

I really liked the mystery here. It was really well done.

And I liked Dr. Tyler Gentry; although some of his decisions seem less than smart I guess when you are under too much pressure is hard to make good decisions and, therefore, I can understand him.

The pace is quick and there are several twists I wasn’t anticipating, at all.

The romance, though... ugh! So little chemistry between those two. It was there because, apparently, there is a rule about having a romance, always. The fact that Ashley is the most unlikely (and unlikable) character ever doesn't help. Her dialogues are simply unbelievable. None woman would talk like that.

But other than that, I really enjoyed the story. And Bill Nevitt's narration is wonderful.

Doctor's Dilemma

Tyler Gentry, fresh out of med school and looking for his first job, thinks he has it all locked up until his parents die and everything falls apart. But out of the blue he is offered a awesome job with great benefits, that it is just too good to turn down. But once he gets there and starts working he starts to hear things about the practice and can feel the trepidation build. When the main doctor of the practice dies that is when all the fun begins. Should Tyler leave or stay at the practice with all its wonderful perks, that 2ould be a dilemma for anyone.

This is a very exciting, fast paced, suspenseful, medical drama, only you do not need to know anything medical to love this book. Dr. Mabry's writing is well paced and the characters work very well together. He doesn't throw a lot of medical jargon at you so everyone can enjoy his books. I listened to the audio version of the book and Mr. Nevitt narration is wonder, he makes you feel a part of the story there with Tyler throughout the whole story. The audio will not disappoint it was real good, but what ever format you decide on I think you will enjoy this book.
