A disappearance in a small town, a decade old murder case revisited, and an enigmatic man at the center of it all—Dawn Eastman’s Do No Harm is compulsively readable and absorbing.

I’d almost consider this to be a cross between a cozy mystery and a crime thriller, since it centers around amateur detective and family practitioner Katie Leclair and takes place in a small town with some big murders. This is a fun one, and I think readers will adore Katie as much as I did!

Do No Harm is actually the se

Book two in this series finds Katie helping a young man recently released from prison as well as searching for a college aged woman that was investigating his case before going missing. I didn’t find this book as well done as the first. Katie is a newly minted GP and it continues to beggar belief that she spends so much of her time investigating possible crimes.

I enjoy the characters in this series. Eastman does get the whole small town feel right - the lack of privacy, the constant gossip.

Within a month after he was released from prison, another girl is found dead ...less than half a mile from where Eugene is living with his mother. The young victim was a college student looking into Eugene's case. Her father was a police offic

Set in late October we meet Katie’s new patient Eugene Lowe, who has just been released from prison for a murder he still claims he didn’t commit. We also learn a young college student who had previously worked with Katie is missing. Taylor Knox just happened to be researching

Dr. Katie LeClair returns in DO NO HARM for another exciting mystery. Her new patient, Eugene, has just returned to town after serving 10 years for manslaughter of a young woman, and he and his mother are being threatened and harassed. Another young woman goes missing. Even though she was reportedly trying to prove his innocence, he comes under suspicion. Enjoyable page-turner!

This is definitely an easy to read quick mystery and even being that its the second in a series doesn't effect how you enjoy it. Dr. Leclair is a very likable character and her honest curiosity draws you into the story with her. It wasn't a difficult or overly thrilling crime, I'd say it's pretty close to a "cozy mystery" type of story but it's a very entertaining, well plotted read.

Do No Harm isn't the most innovative mystery novel I've ever read, but I found myself enjoying it immensely regardless.

It was only after I started reading that I realized that this is actually the second book in a series featuring the protagonist of Dr. Katie LeClair. Despite the fact that I hadn't read the first book, I wasn't lost or confused at all as Dawn Eastman did a great job of catching the reader up on the events from the previous story.

DO NO HARM, the second book in the Dr. Katie LeClair mystery series, is a well written book of suspense and small town life. It can easily be read as a standalone mystery. Eastman does a good job of giving readers plenty of back story without ruining the mystery of the first book in the series. The story is compelling and the pace steady, keeping me glued to the pages, reading the entire book in one sitting.

Do No Harm by Dawn Eastman is the 2nd in this series however it reads as a stand-alone novel as well as the fact that the author does a great job at giving the backstory so that the reader can follow along. Eugene Lowe has been released from prison after serving 10 years for a manslaughter charge. He goes back to his small hometown to live with his mother. He visits a Dr once home to remove some sutures he had and finds out that she does not know who he is or his past as she is new to the town. ...more

DO NO HARM is the second in the Dr Le Clair mystery series but my first read. I found it easy to follow as a stand alone but feel having read this in a day, that I will certainly be going back to No. 1 and keeping a look out for future instalments! I loved the whole Jessica Fletcher stance, although in this case a small town Doctor solving a mystery, I kinda figured out the perpetrator so it came as no surprise but it didn’t take away from it. Quick easy read, perfect for those that love a good ...more

Somehow I missed the first in this new series which surprised me because I have read her other series and enjoyed it. Now to get my hands on the previous mystery.

A nice follow up to Eastman's debut Kate LeClair novel. These fall somewhere to the side of a cozy as they feature an amateur detective with an interesting side job (she's a physician) solving crime in a small town with, in this case, a good relationship with local law enforcement. Katie finds herself wrapped into drama involving Eugene, newly released from prison where he was serving time for manslaughter, and also into the hunt for Taylor, a young woman who worked with her at the clinic.

Do no Harm
Fast easy read. I never felt bored or wanting it to get going. Ending seemed rushed and a bit predictable. But I do find it a little difficult to believe that a physician would have the time to investigate a case, and to figure things out that law enforcement could not. But overall a good beach read.
Thanks to NetGalley for advanced copy of the book.

I didn't feel so relaxed that I wasn't interested though. I finished in one day. This book comes out December 2018 and I would put this on my to read list.
