HEALER'S HERESY is the tenth book in the Cassidy McCabe series. (How I missed the first nine books is beyond me!)
Cassidy McCabe is a psychotherapist. Her husband, Zach, is a reporter. A late night visitor arrives at their doorstep with blood on his shirt and booze on his breath. Against her husband's objections, Cassidy admits the former client to her home office. Jordan Wenzlaff, the former patient, claims that he entered the home of the woman he was stalking, a Dr. Claudia Leavitt, and found her dead. He knows the police will suspect him and he wants Cassidy to help him. Cassidy believed Jordan was over his obsession with Claudia, now she and Zach try to unravel what happened and why. It seems the doctor wasn't who she seemed to be and Jordan might be telling the truth, but will anyone get out of this unscathed?
I don't normally like sleuthing duos but Cassidy and Zach are an exception. They fit well together and balance each other. I wouldn't mind tagging along with these two. Providing I didn't get killed, that is!
The author has a breezy, conversational style of writing that I like, a lot. HEALER'S HERESY is well-plotted with lots of action, strong, likeable characters, and good pacing. Fans of this series will be pleased with this entry. Readers new to the series will be thrilled to discover a "new" author to add to their list of favorites.
