|Over the Edge
By Brandilyn Collins / B&H Books
Janessa McNeil’s husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, has spent his life "proving" chronic Lyme Disease doesn’t exist. Because of doctors like Brock many Lyme patients remain untreated. One embittered man–who lost his wife to the disease–has seen enough. He breaks into the McNeil’s house and places an infected tick on Jannie while she sleeps. After Jannie develops Lyme symptoms the man states his demand–or her daughter will be next. Jannie must convince her husband to publicly change his opinion about Lyme. But her marriage is already rocky. She’s so sick she can hardly walk or think. And her husband denies that she has Lymes at all.
When I heard Brandilyn Collins was writing a book about Lyme disease I was thinking, “How is that going to work? It can’t be good.What is she thinking!?!?!” Well, guess what? I was so wrong. Yet again, Brandilyn Collins gives us one wild ride. From the beginning she captures your attention and doesn’t let go until the very end.
Janessa McNeil is probably a typical doctor’s wife, she takes care of the home, puts much of her energy into raising their daughter and dealing with the demons from her past. Jannie is not only haunted by her past but she is damaged by it. And Brock McNeil is probably a typical doctor, arrogant and never wrong. He’s overly confident and quite honestly I had strong feelings of DISLIKE toward this man most of the book.
If you’re a Brandilyn Collins’ fan this is another winner! If you have never read Brandilyn Collins this is a great one to start with as it is a stand alone book. You will find her writing easy to follow and engaging.
