"Janessa McNeil's husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University's Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases--especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn't exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings--which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment. One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme--or their young daughter will be next. But Janessa's marriage is already rocky. She's so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all. Welcome to the Lyme wars, Janessa."--Publisher's website.

Take a look at the trailer for this book. It may draw you in.

This book was very interesting and sheds light on realities in medical research. It was a page turner, so it was entertaining; (I finished it in one day because I just had to know what happened)

I did not like how the mystery ended... the ending was very weak. The story was built up but fell flat at the end.

However, this was my first book by this author and I believe she has the gift of drawing the reader in; so ill read another book from her in the future.
