As someone with very close and important female friendships, I always enjoy reading a book wherein the central relationship is a friendship between women. Queen of Hearts is the tale of a decade+ long friendship, and the secret that could unravel it entirely. As the author is a doctor, it makes sense that she would give the two main characters the same profession. However, I would criticize the amount of medical-description is in the book. There is way too much detail about medical procedures and issues and surgeries - and it is not at all needed for the plot. There's basically 2 medical emergencies in the storyline that are integral to how to story unfolds, everything else is just superfluous, and I didn't care at all. I ended up skimming most of those parts. A better editor could have cut like 50 pages of unnecessary description from the book, and it would have a been a much more fluid and enjoyable read.

This was a fun summer read. I wanted to find out what happened with the characters and it kept a decent pace. Found it via the Modern Mrs. Darcy summer reading list.

I really liked this book! I cared about the flawed, realistic characters, loved the behind-the-scenes hospital setting, and enjoyed the author's writing style (though sometimes she was a wee bit too descriptive when describing surgical procedures).
