5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read 26 Mar. 2011
By JM VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't be put off by some less favourable reviews, please go ahead and try it. I'd already bought this book when I saw them and they made me think it would fall a bit flat. Not so, I loved it and thought it was as good as Emma's Baby.
Dawn is the Matron of a busy London hospital. When an elderly patient in pain begs her to end her life she does so, unaware that someone is watching her. Only when she is blackmailed does she realise she was seen.
Suspicion jumps from person to person as Dawn tries to work out who saw her, and is making her life hell. For me too, my suspicions moved from one suspect to another, I was convinced of who it was from early on but was way off the mark. There are many twists and turns to keep you turning the pages and not wanting to put this book down. It's a far more original plot than lots of crime books which all seem to follow the same tired lines.
Another excellent read from this author and looking forward to the next already!

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner 12 Mar. 2011
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to read about the topic of euthanasia written by a doctor who obviously has had experience of the issue. I liked the way she doesn't force the issue down your throat but leaves you to make up your own mind about whether Dawn, a character you sometimes feel ambiguous about, did the right thing. I found it fascinating to read the inner details of how a hospital ward is run and the relationships between the hospital staff. There are plenty of twists and turns and I, for one, couldn't see how on earth Dawn was going to get out of her predicament. The end, while unexpected, was satisfying as it made you see the truth of her character.

2.0 out of 5 stars Safe Hands by Abbie Taylor, Disappointment! 27 Mar. 2011
By Poppet
Format:Paperback
I was really looking forward to the 2nd book by Abbie Taylor. I thought her 1st book Emma's Baby was amazing and have reccommended this to many and loaned mine out several times!
Safe Hands was nowhere near as good and unfortunately I felt I struggled to read to the end as It was soooo bad.

Hopefully the 3rd book will be back on form and as good as the 1st.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 2nd novel 1 Jun. 2011
By Sarah
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this because I loved Emma's Baby and I was so looking forward to reading it. It is nowhere near as good, the writing and dialogue are clunky and the perpetrator of the blackmail was extremely obvious from very early on, so I felt that there was no hook or tension. I hope Abbie writes another, better novel for her 3rd novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars In Safe Hands 1 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
A nicely written, well-plotted novel about a nurse who cares deeply for her patients. She is willing to take the ultimate risk for their comfort. But is she willing to pay the price? Someone knows what she's done. But who are they? The author keeps us guessing right until the end. What are the strengths of the book? The main character is well-drawn,comes alive on the page, and her life of work in the hospital feels real.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nurse in Charge 6 Mar. 2011
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Emma's Baby and was looking forward to reading her next book, unfortunately it just didn't live up to expectations.

The story is about a matron on a ward who working is wholly involved with her work but something happens (I don't want to spoil the plot) There are many points where you think this book is going to develop into something but it never quite happens. I did finish the book but even what is supposed to be the twist just doesn't work.
