Saving Meghan is a riveting new thriller full of secrets and lies from author D.J. Palmer. Can you love someone to death?
Some would say Becky Gerard is a devoted mother and would do anything for her only child. Others, including her husband Carl, claim she's obsessed and can't stop the vicious circle of finding a cure at her daughter's expense.
Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghan’s illness. Doctors suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what's going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand?
As the Gerards grow more and more suspicious of each other and their medical team, Becky must race against time to prove her daughter has a deadly disease. But first, she must confront her darkest fears and family secrets that threaten to not only upend her once-ordered life…but to destroy it.
***3 Star Review***
Saving Meghan was a good debut book. It was a very slow paced book but not enough to make me lose interest in the story. Is Meghan sick?! Is her mother making her ill?! Are the doctors plotting against them?! Is her Father telling the truth?! These were several of the questions running through my mind while reading. There weren't many big twists throughout this book until the end. I had a feeling as to what was going on with Meghan but the author threw a twist in there I didn't see coming.
If you are looking for a slow paced but intriguing read with a big twist at the end, this is the one. I would recommend this to my friends and I look forward to reading more of D.J. Palmer.
