I've enjoyed each of the books in this series, Angels of Mercy! The characters are both charming and at times frustrating in their stubbornness in maintaining what they believe. As a long retired of the medical field, I have to admit some of the senarios can be a bit far-fetched. But that's what makes for an unputdownable novel is all about! Keep them coming!
Good reading while waiting for a flight or before going to bed at night! CJ Lyons has been a mainstay for me and my wife. We really enjoy her fictional account of the ER in action. It's not Grey's Anatomy at all. There are elements of romance and personal relationships but that is true in real life as well. Lyons has written a prodigious amount of novels dealing with medical issues but she was an ER MD in her past so she writes from experience. No matter, it is enjoyable to read her novels because they keep you rooted in suspense and keeps you interested in how the story ends. Warning Signs is the 2nd book of a series of novels dealing with the ER. It follows the lives of the main characters as they navigate the intricacies of the ER while living their lives as normal as they can. Interpersonal relationships are crucial for the main characters and there's always a real bad character around. Guessing who that person or persons is part of the fun of reading the book.
Just a little bit close to the "romantic" novels where a couple meet, disagree and end up happily together in the end. This told me a lot about hospital workers and how some things happen behind those closed doors. I did enjoy reading the whole book. I hope ms. Lyons has a better proof reader than she used for the short part of her new book. In the few pages that were included at the end of this book there were 2 stupid spell check words that were wrong. Please have books read by a person rather then just spell checked. Ie: the rap was never talked about. Spell check doesn't realize they were talking about a rape, and the word rap is really a word, it just doesn't belong there.
CJ Lyons always delivers. Her description of life in the emergency rooms are graphic, but she adds the emotions of the personnel into the mix to make it real and exciting. There are never any dull moments in her plots. Although, each novel can stand on its own, the fact that she interjects some of her previous characters into the mix, gives the reader a feeling of involvement. Very well done.

CJ Lyons has done it again, kept me engaged up until the very end. Great metaphors and analogies. The drama of emergency medicine intertwined with police work, mystery, romance, and the intricacies of the human psyche are all here. Even the mysterious No Name cat is intriguing and perhaps an angel in disguise. Lyons does a great job of character development and the book, although part of a series, stands alone as a fascinating and exciting story. Keep them coming!
Great continuation of a series. C J Lyons keeps the 4-8 main characters lives, professional & personal, flowing without confusion and keeps you guessing. I just love her. Looks & ant read them fast enough.
