Book Review: Looks That Deceive (MedAir Series Book 1) by Braxton DeGarmo

When I first encountered this book and read the blurb I thought it sounded like something I would like. It took me awhile to get around to reading Looks That Deceive because it really wasn’t high on my TBR list. I am glad I did finally get around to reading it though.

Looks That Decieve by Braxton DeGarmo coverThis is the first of a series of medical thriller mystery books and though there is a conclusion to the mystery in this story, there is a cliff hanger in regards a subplot for the characters. If you don’t like series then this book can stand alone for the main story and you wouldn’t have to read any more in the series.

I enjoyed Looks That Deceive and found the characters to be quite real. People with whom I could identify and relate. The plot was well done, and as the title suggests, it is a medical thriller. The author is either familiar with or has done a lot of research on procedures and emergency medical treatment.

The plot involves a serial killer who is targeting legal assistants that all match a similar profile. The two main characters are a MedAir nurse who is part of the team responding to emergency calls where some of the victims are found and the law enforcement officer who is trying to solve the murder cases. There is a romantic history between these two characters and is part of a subplot to the book and to the series, I’m certain.

This was an excellent read and I look forward to reading the next book in the MedAir series.

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
