A riveting new thriller about a mother accused of deliberately making her daughter sick—a phenomenon known as Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy—and the secrets and lies that are revealed.

The Gerard family has lived a charmed life. Carl is a highly successful residential developer with millions in the bank who married his high school sweetheart, Becky, and they have a beautiful daughter, Meghan. But when Meghan is suddenly struck with a mysterious illness that starts out as chronic headaches and joint pain but progresses rapidly to affect her cognitive ability, the family begins to fracture as they search desperately for a diagnosis and and a cure for Meghan’s suffering.

Dr. Zachary Fisher, a pediatrician and the foremost expect on a rare mitochondrial disease, might just be the answer to their prayers. After the death of his own son, Dr. Fisher dedicated his life to finding a way to cure the disease with a passion that borders on obsession, and he is convinced that Meghan is suffering from the same illness. However, family secrets and clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghan’s illness. As the Gerards grow more and more suspicious of each other and their medical team, they must also race against the clock to decide whether to give Meghan a dangerous test that could prove once and for all what — or who — is responsible for her condition. 

My thoughts about Saving Meghan ~~ 

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"Panic gripped her as the airplane’s hatch door closed."

Saving Meghan will have you, as the reader, questioning each character's motive and wondering who you can believe. And then, when you least expect it, you'll get hit from left field.

I knew when I started this book that there were going to be twists and unexpected turns so as I was reading it, I kept looking for the holes in peoples' stories, doubting everyone's actions. Reading like that, expecting the worst in everyone, had me on the edge of my seat through the whole book. What a tense, but exciting journey!

I loved this page-turning, extraordinary story and can't wait to see what else D. J. has in store for his readers.

I received an ARC of Saving Meghan from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
