Book Review Spotlight - Resuscitation by Jerrid Edgington
Resuscitation by Jerrid Edgington is the second book in the Racing the Reaper series and one that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you read through it.
The book begins shortly after the first one, Racing the Reaper, leaves off. Following after Bridge, the main character, Jacob, is in a new town and in a new job. Little does he know that his love interest, Bridge is already involved with a doctor at the hospital. Jacob discovers this when he happens to run into her and the doctor one day after Jacob delivers a patient via ambulance to the hospital.
The reader is taken on a journey through emotional highs and lows right along with Jacob. I cringed, cried and laughed out loud at some of the emergency calls that Jacob had to respond to, but in the end thought that all of it seemed very realistic in terms of what first responders go through on a daily basis.
Intertwined with the main plot is the struggle between Bridge and Jacob to work out a way to be together. All the while, Jacob must also deal with Bridge's ex-boyfriend who is a power hungry, control freak that gets his comeuppance later in the book.
Although this second book stands on its own, I would recommend reading the first book prior to this one to get the full back story of Jacob and his life before the new town and new job.
The author did a great job of tying up loose ends and delivering a complete, well-written sequel to Racing the Reaper (Book 1). Looking forward to the next book in the series.
