Dr. Hope Sze rolls into Montreal with three simple goals: 1) survive her family medicine residency, 2) try pain au chocolat, 3) go on a date sometime in the next two years.
Turns out there's no shortage of good-looking guys in the gourmet capital of North America—and a Code Blue in the men's locker room.
On her first emergency room shift, Hope tries to resuscitate a doctor found in the men’s locker room. Not just any doctor, but St. Joseph's smartest, most charming, most beloved M.D.
The police think he accidentally overdosed on insulin. Yet why did he wander in the OR in the middle of the night? Either he had untold secrets, or evil lurks in the crumbling corridors of St. Joe's.
When Hope tries to uncover the killer, two men dive in to help her.
The one man with charm to burn has zero alibi.
See Hope eat. See Hope laugh. See Hope run.
Because in the end, her only goal is #1: survive.
Code Blues. Sex, drugs, and doctors.
Written by an emergency physician trained in Montreal.
"Drawing on her personal experiences in the ER in Canada, Yi has created medical thrillers that shine with authenticity and are impossible to put down. Code Blues provides the perfect introduction to a world we often experience, but rarely understand."
— Kris Nelscott, New York Times bestseller
