Review: One part medical drama and one part soap opera, THE QUEEN OF HEARTS is just what the doctor ordered.  This is a contemporary drama spanning a twenty year friendship between doctors, Zadie and Emma, highlighting the highs and lows of medical school, relationships, family, and careers.  A testament that extraordinary people have ordinary problems also.

Set in present day Charlotte, NC, the book alternates narratives between Zadie and Emma’s recollections of their third year in medical school. The flashbacks reveal a steamy romance between Zadie and their chief resident, ‘Dr. X’. Thru these revelations damages unfold as jealousy plagues their friendship and the strength it takes to truly forgive. Martin sprinkles in a few laughs throughout the story with Zadie’s youngest child, Delaney’s adorable antics.

As a long time admirer of shows like ER and Grey’s Anatomy, I really enjoyed the medical parts and jargon Martin injects into this story.

A delightful debut novel for fans of medical dramas, family life, and hospitals.
