Don’t Wake Up by Liz Lawler
Thank you to TLC Book Tours and Harper for my free copy of Don’t Wake Up. I actually read this book last year with Criminally Good Book Club on IG last year and gave it four stars. It was only available from the U.K. at the time so that was the edition I bought. When I saw that it was coming out in the U.S. I jumped at the chance to feature it. I actually really love this new cover too.
Goodreads Synopsis: When Dr. Alex Taylor opens her eyes, she is hooked up to an IV, is bound to an operating table, and her legs are raised in stirrups. Disoriented and alarmed, she assumes she’s been anesthetized and brought to surgery after being in an accident. But the man standing over her, with his face hidden behind a surgical mask and wielding instruments, is no doctor she recognizes at the hospital where she works as a successful and respected doctor. He’s a stranger—and he’s calmly and methodically telling her how he’s about to attack her. Before Alex can even scream for help, she succumbs to another dose of anesthesia, rendering her unable to defend herself….
When she comes to on a gurney, she finds herself surrounded by her colleagues and immediately reports the attack and rape. The police are skeptical of her bizarre story. And after a physical exam reveals no proof of any attack, even her boyfriend has doubts. Despite Alex’s adamant claims, no one believes her, leaving her to wonder if she has, in fact, lost her mind.
Until she meets the next victim…
