One killer is in her blood. The other is in her house. Blood Secrets, Book 1 There’s a killer lurking in Dr. Skylar Novak’s family tree: the gene for breast cancer. That's why her brilliant brother invented the Bella vaccine. But even if the miracle drug protects her from the cancer that took her mother's life, it can't save Sky from the flesh and bone evil stalking her in secret. When the killer strikes, detective Daniel Benson finds himself in the wrong place at the right time. The bold detective manages to save Sky's life…just in time for her to return the favor. Survival leads to seduction, and Danny risks everything—his career, even his life, to keep Sky safe. But will the buried sins they uncover cost him her heart? Danny’s strong arms may hold her close, but only Sky can stop the terror that's coming next… Warning: Contents include: One heart-melting hero—good luck getting this delicious detective out of your head. One reluctant heroine—wielding a Glock was never on her to-do list. One crazed villain—an entire flock of baa baa black sheep won't be enough to put you to sleep. And a lifesaving vaccine with one deadly side effect—murder.… (més)

Loved this book. The author is a physician and boy you could tell through out this book. The first three chapters blew me away both with the introduction of the hero and heroine and with the detailed explanations of medical procedures that had to be performed. Don't say this often but I also fell in love with the hero from his first words in the book.

Dr. Skylar Novak goes through life determining the threat level and quickest escape route of every place she goes due to seeing her father killed and being both physically and almost sexually assaulted by the person that killed her father when she was a younger. She thinks she is finally happy in her life now that she has her clinic, her brother and her fiance. As she is waiting for her favorite diner to open where she is meeting her brother and fiance she runs into detective Daniel Benson who is quite the flirt and if she wasn't already engaged she would be charmed by. But everything changes in the blink of an eye. A robber comes in and destroys her happiness again by killing her fiance and shooting Daniel who was trying to defuse the hostage situation.

Skylar's brother Garth is the creator of a vaccination that cures a specific form of breast cancer. The same form that killed there mother and also the type that Skylar has test positive for. Skylar supports her brothers research and longs for the drug to be approved by the FDA so it can finally be made available to the many women that need it. She refuses to take a dose for herself until its on the market and readily available to everyone.

Three months after the shooting Daniel is still on leave due to his shoulder not being back to 100%. Daniel is the single father to a teenage girl who is going through so major issues due to her father's job and her mother's suicide when she was little. He is also having a hard time letting go of this feeling that the robbery was not all it seemed like it was. He decides he needs to ask Skylar more questions about her Fiance's death.

This starts the balling rolling on more twist and turns than you could imagine. You just sit back and hang on for the ride through every shock that comes at you. The book just flowed from beginning to end and I couldn't wait to see what the author was going to throw at us next.

I started reading this book, and I literally couldn't put it down. I finished it in one day. Every time I stopped reading, I kept coming back to it, because I had to know what was going to happen. Let me say at the outset, that I think this is correctly called a romantic thriller. If you're thinking of it as a traditional "romantic suspense," I'd put it much heavier on the suspense side, maybe 70/30 or 80/20 suspense. I even think readers of "mainstream" thrillers/suspense would love this book. Regardless of how you characterize it, the bottom line is that this is an excellent book!!

Things I loved about this book--I love strong suspense plots. This book hooks you from the opening scene. It is action packed and keeps you guessing. When the big villain reveal occurs, you will literally say, OH NO. The heroine, Sky, is a doctor who works at a non profit clinic. She is immediately likeable and relatable. Strong, smart, but also damaged in her own ways. The hero, Danny, is equally amazing. He is truly one of the "good guys." The tension between them is strong. Danny's daughter, Katie, is a great addition and adds a layer to the story. As I said earlier, this book is heavy on suspense, and at some parts is quite dark--and a lot of people die. I had no problem with that, but if you're looking for a light and airy romantic suspense, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a well-written, fast paced, gripping and smart thriller with a dose of romance--Baldwin has the book for you.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book. ( )

This is a fast-paced medical thriller that begins when single-father cop Danny Benson finds himself in the middle of a robbery at a diner that results in the death of Sky Novak's fiance and almost results in his death too. When he recovers he discovers that the investigation has been closed even though he still has questions about it. When he goes to see Sky, he quickly learns that the attack in the diner mirrors a robbery attempt at her home when she was seventeen that killed her father. Both happened on the same day. She was saved when she was seventeen because her adopted brother Garth came home in time and strangled the man who killed her father and was trying to rape her.

Garth is now famous for inventing a vaccine that repairs a damaged gene that causes women who have it to develop breast cancer. He has named the vaccine Bella for Sky's mother who rescued him from an abusive foster home situation, adopted him, and then died of breast cancer. Sky has also become a doctor and runs a free clinic. She has the gene but refuses to take the vaccine until there is enough in production for everyone who needs it. Her brother is both frustrated and angry with her because of her decision. Sky runs her clinic on a shoestring and, when her former fiance and partner is served with a malpractice suit, she has to prove that the the Bella vaccine is not the cause.

We learn who the villain is early in this one. He is a complete psychopath who always has a rational reason, at least to him, for all the murders he is committing. I personally find this kind of villain the most chilling because he doesn't see himself as evil. All of the horrible things he does are fully justified and even necessary in his mind.

I also liked the romance in this one. Both Danny and Sky have suffered losses. Sky is still letting hers influence the rest of her life. Danny has managed to come to grips with his loss at least partially because he has had to be strong for his thirteen-year-old daughter. He helps Sky come to terms with her losses too as they fall in love.

I recommend this one for fans of quick-paced thrillers. Romance lovers will also like the relationship between Sky and Danny. ( )

FIRST DO NO EVIL is a well written, entertaining thriller with a great love story. Baldwin creates a tale with enough suspense to have the reader sitting on the edge of their seat. Danny and Skylar are very real and likeable. I couldn’t wait for the scenes where they interacted. Baldwin’s medical experience gives her the ability to bring life and additional tension to crisis scenes with her realistic portrayal of the danger. Sky’s brother Garth could easily become just another stereotype but Baldwin makes him different and interesting. I’ve found a new writer to add to my must read list. ( )
