To Sleep....Perchance to Die by Donald R. Grippo ~ Book Review

Book Summary:

Tangled lives, tainted love, and a Shakespearean twist lead to deception, betrayal, and murder. In this sexy, psychological thriller, Eurasian beauty Mai Faca plots to marry Jake Warden, a successful oral surgeon forbidden to her because of family honor. In an unheard-of scheme, fellow surgeon, Bret Manley, falls victim to Mai's seduction as she and Jake play a cruel trick to be together. Jake acts with surgical precision to clear the path to Mai's happiness, threatening lives including his own. In a wake of turmoil and destruction, Bret's uncle and well-known criminal attorney Hubie Santos attempts to find out if a surgeon would use his knowledge to kill.

Review:

Lately I have been reading romance novels and not thrillers or mysteries. I decided to pick this book up as I recently signed up to be a tour host with this new Canadian book tour company and one of my reading goals this year was to step outside of my comfort zone. 

I am really glad I picked up this book for review. It is a great medical mystery. The author did a great job forming this storyline. If you are looking for a really suspenseful/thriller type this is more of a subtle type manipulative type storyline. A twisted romantic love story. I really liked Bret's character along with his uncle Hubie. Mai on the other hand was one character I wanted to shake throughout the book. By the end of it I was so heart broken for what Jake and Mai but Bret through but so happy that Hubie's PI was on Bret's side. A bit of a Shakespeare romance. 

I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars. It is a quick read.
