This is Sandra Orchard’s third novel in her Undercover Cops series, and I when I saw the cover, a little bit of the peace that autumn offers descended upon me like the fluttering leaves themselves. But I will say peace was not the feeling I received while reading it—at least not at first.

Sandra packs every page with twists and turns, emotional highs…and more highs, and a story that equated to a medical thriller romance that felt like The Fugitive meets luuve. Best of both worlds, in my romantic

Review on my blog (to be posted 10/6):

Critical Condition is the third book in Sandra Orchard's Undercover Cops series and a great addition. Having read the first two books prior to this one, I can say that I am loving this series and hope it doesn't end with this book. One thing I particularly like (besides the fact that the cops are undercover) is that some of the previous characters appear in thi

All genres are somewhat formulaic, but this one was written with a template. In addition, it was not well written - one example [among many]: toward the end of the book, the female protagonist is returning to wrk and is to put her daughter in the work-provided day care. She and the male protagonist show up at her work, but there is no child. A few pages later, it was as if the author realized the child was necessary for the plot, and inserted that the female protagonist had arranged for her sist ...more

In her book Critical Condition, Sandra Orchard captures the essence of a tender heart longing to love again. While trying to unravel the sinister schemes of two tragic hospital murders, undercover cop Zach and nurse Tara secretly find themselves caught between waves of romantic tension, fear and questions about who can be trusted. With a gift for pacing, Orchard kept me engaged and curious from front to back. The relationship between Zach and Tara’s toddler daughter was so endearing, I often for ...more

I don't typically read faith-based books, so this was an interesting departure for me. I really enjoyed Zach because he was the typical protector I look for in a hero, but he also had a softness and vulnerability to his character that felt authentic. I also enjoyed the medical element of this book which was also a first for me.
This is the first Sandra Orchard book I read. The storyline was a great suspense romance. I loved Tara & Zach as a couple. I loved Tara's daughter she is so cute & adorable. That is so evil to kill off patients in the hospital, the killer got what they deserved. I would definitely read more book by Ms. Orchard great job.
A wonderful mix between suspense and romance! As clues were suitably vague, the author had me guessing who the villain was right up till the end. It certainly wasn't who I expected! Learning to live without lost loved ones, is difficult for us all, I am sure, and it is no different for the hero.

I have to say this was one of the best Love Inspired Suspenses I've read in a long time. I couldn't stop turning the pages! I had to find out who the killer was and why. Great suspense, sweet romance, and a great Christian theme too.
I've waited for "Dak's" story. Turned out pretty well. Another great Sandra Orchard story. Hard to put down. Kept me captivated to the last page.

Was a good read that had me guessing the true villain up to the reveal. Will definitely read other faith-based books by Sandra Orchard.
