Do No Harm

Summary: Emma loves her life. She’s the mother of a precocious kindergartener, married to her soulmate—a loyal and loving police detective—and has a rewarding career as a doctor at the local hospital.

But everything comes crashing down when her son, Josh, is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

Determined to save him, Emma makes the risky decision to sell opioids to fund the life-saving treatment he needs. But when somebody ends up dead, a lethal game of cat and mouse ensues, her own husband leading the chase. With her son’s life hanging in the balance, Emma is dragged into the dark world of drugs, lies, and murder. Will the truth catch up to her before she can save Josh?

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Christina McDonald is all up in some gray areas in this book. Yes we know selling drugs is bad- but finding out the drug that will provide your son the best chance at survival costs $100,000 and your insurance won’t cover it and oh yeah- you got to have the money BEFORE the kid gets the medicine- is also wrong. So Emma dips her toes into the murky gray area.


What I Liked:

That cover is perfect for this book.

You know that the fact that Emma’s husband is a cop (and trying to solve crimes that Emma is closely linked to) just adds to the dramatic situation of the book.

The push and pull of the choices that Emma is making. Is she wrong? Right? Can you ever be wrong when trying to save the life of your child?


Bottom line: For me, this book did not give me the “gotta read” feeling like The Night Olivia Fell did- but still very readable. Book clubs will love this for the discussions they can have!
