I do like a good doctor drama, especially when the doctor isn't stuck in an emergency room doing the same things every other fictional ER doctor does, a la Gray's Anatomy minus the scandal. This story was an excellent twist on the doctor and thriller genres as a doctor and a nurse are forced to survive a brutal mountain after surviving a plane crash while avoiding shooters and deciding how to save themselves so they can save another, her father who is waiting for his fancy new mechanical heart.

I had very high hopes for this book when I first saw it. It had "The Mountain Between Us" vibes to it, which excited me.

Unfortunately, Turbulence just didn't cut it for me.

My main issues were with the medical inaccuracies. The main character, Paul, is a doctor. After a plane crash, he self-diagnoses himself as having broken a couple ribs. But then he proceeds to administer several rounds of CPR to another victim. Okay, I'll buy that. He's probably got loads of adrenaline coursing through his b

Turbulence was the first book by Dana Mentink I've read--a great introduction to a new Love Inspired Suspense author. This book started with a super-charged situation.

Heroine Maddie Lambert a daughter flying with the new heart machine for her father who is dying. And in the same plane is the hero Paul Ford, MD--the doctor who treated her nieces when they were in a auto accident.

Paul wasn't able to save them and the heroine's father has vowed revenge. Oh, and BTW, the heroine was engaged to Pau

This book surprised me in a good way. I started reading after dinner and didn't stop until I finished. The suspense held my attention, and the way the characters mentioned God sounded practical rather than preachy. This was my first Love Inspired Suspense, but it won't be my last. ...more

Turbulence is the kind of story that defies logic - how can so much plot be packed into such a short novel?

The story opens with Maddie Lambert boarding the plane that will take a life-saving mechanical heart to her father. Also on board are her father's rival (Dr. Wrigley) a mystery man who claims to work for the company that makes the mechanical heart (Tai Jaden), and Maddie's ex-fiance, Dr. Paul Ford.

Then the plane crashes - on page 14. Nothing like diving into the action right away! (or per

Sometimes we stagger under the weight of tragedy and heartache, losing whatever faith we had. This book is a good reminder that no matter what we face, God is greater and He still loves us. Even when our faith crumbles and we turn from God, He still protects us and guides us, leading us back to a place where we can surrender and trust Him with our lives.

"Some things are only God's to know.

There was no way to make sense of what had happened, to know the why of it. Paul hung onto to his faith in

This book is a book that once you pick it up, you won't want to put down. The story begins with a group getting onto a plane to deliver a mechanical heart to a man that the passengers have mixed feelings about. His daughter wants to ride the plane to see personally that the heart gets to where it needs to go. Her ex-fiance is on the plane and is considered an enemy for the part she and her family believed he played in the death of her nieces. Another doctor is on the plane and holds the same bla ...more

Maggie is having a bit more than just a bad day…

I’m not even going to try to get into all the details; there’s too many and I’d just leave you confused and out on a limb.

The main character in this book is Maddie — and she’s had such a rough time during the past year, it’s not fair — but life often isn’t fair.

I really don’t want to give away any spoilers, so let me just reassure you that this book is definitely worth reading. Dana Mentink is a superb writer — this book will attest to that fact.

3.5 stars. It wasn't that there was really anything wrong with the book, but it just didn't grab me the way I like. It didn't suck me in. I found myself frequently checking to see how much I had left to read before I could be done, and the book finished. It was a decent read. I just didn't love it. ...more
