    Full disclosure: Kimmery and I are both part of TheDebutanteBall.com and I received a free copy form Net Galley in exchange for a review. I absolutely loved Kimmery Martin's tone of voice. I was sucked in right from the beginning by her unexpected and endearing prose. "Meanwhil...

    Zadie and Emma have a friendship that has stood the test of time. They went to medical school together, endured the highs and lows of dating, and are now juggling the demands of a family as neighbors in North Carolina. Their lives and careers were pretty uneventful until a colleague ni...

    2 Stars. Zadie and Emma are best friends. They have been since medical school. Now both are successful doctors with beautiful families. Their lives should be perfect right? Yet both have secrets they want to keep hidden, some of which they have even kept from each other. Now, with t...

    This book is a beautifully written, compelling read that is full of delicious treats: laugh-out-loud humor; an equally riveting view of the home front as from the hospital; and an unflinching yet tender acknowledgment of doctors as flawed human beings who struggle to reconcile their bi...

    ***ARC received for an honest review*** I took a gamble, and it paid off. This is a debut novel so when I agreed to read the ARC I had no idea what lay ahead. But I read the blurb four times and stared at that gorgeous cover while my internal debate raged. And finally I thought "wha...

    3 stars This was an entertaining medical suspense drama revolving around best friends and fellow doctors, Emma and Zadie. I enjoyed it for the most part, but found the medical detail to be quite heavy and overpowering. It had a Grey?s Anatomy feel to it which I enjoyed (I used to ...

    This book has the medical drama, excitement, and steamy work romance of Gray?s Anatomy, and the female bonds, motherhood struggles, secrets, heartbreak, and wit of Big Little Lies tied up in one delectable package. I LOVED it, and I couldn?t get enough of it. I think that this b...

    This was a wonderful book about the power and strength of friendship. Zadie and Emma meet in medical school, and through the years their friendship grows. Secrecy and self-doubt are wound throughout the timeline, and in the end, will their long, tangled rich friendship be enough to ove...

    Release date: February 13, 2018 4.5 stars! I LOVED this book! The Queen of Hearts is a book about doctors, written by a doctor. It was so good! The two main characters, Emma and Zadie, have been best friends since medical school. But something happens in their third year of scho...

    Combine late hours working at the hospital with an irresistible, handsome, charming and persistent doctor?friendships and disasters go hand in hand in Kimmery Martin?s debut, The Queen of Hearts. Zadie and Emma are best friends, from medical school to the present, currently living ...

    Thank you so much to Berkley Publishing for providing my free copy of THE QUEEN OF HEARTS by Kimmery Martin - all opinions are my own. This is one addictive read! The Queen of Hearts is a brilliant story about two best friends, Zadie and Emma, and a moving tale of friendship, love,...

    I loved this book! Not often will I read a novel based or involved in the area of Medicine as I spend so much of my time living and working within that world in reality. Often novel portrayals can be on two opposite sides of the spectrum, either incredibly unrealistic or too realist...

    The ingredients of this book are my ultimate kryptonite: long, windy, delicate but exacting sentence structure and accoutrement; emotional turmoil in a health care setting; biology based literary devices. I so sure this would be 5 stars but sadly the sum of the parts did not make a coh...

    Oh sooo good!! 4.5 Stars... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sometimes a book just hits you right. Touches all of your senses and emotions and maybe even shocks you a bit. When I started reading The Queen of Hearts, I was expecting just a women?s fiction. But this book is so much more. ...

    "If there's anything I've learned it's this: the past is never really gone. It's one long chain linking the present and also the future, and sometimes it doubles back on itself, exposing the things you thought were buried." This debut novel by Kimmery Martin is sharp, witty, beautif...

    Whip-smart and full of heart, Martin expertly weaves the threads of friendship, love and betrayal into a story that crackles with humor and compassion. The Queen of Hearts is a brilliant debut. ...

    Fans of Grey's Anatomy will LOVE THIS BOOK!!! This story focuses on Zadie and Emma - best friend since medical school - now in private practice with families of their own. Zadie is a pediatric cardiologist and Emma is a surgeon. When Nick, chief resident during their medical school ...

    Sadie and Emma are roommates in college and go through medical school together. They remain best friends and both have practices in North Carolina many years later. Zadie is a pediatric cardiologist, and Emma is a trauma surgeon. Their friendship begins to unravel when Emma starts brin...

    OMG! 5 stars all over the freaking place! This was such an amazing book. It pulled at my "heartstrings" no pun intended. First off here's my wish.... I wish this was a movie and here is how my cast would be. Amanda Seyfried - Emma Joey Lauren Adams - Zadie Wayne Brady - Wyatt Jo...

    Told through Zadie and Emma's perspectives, the author takes us on a journey of their friendship... From when they hit it off the first day in their dorms as new roommates to decades later as lifelong friends, their "persons" and the only one who truly accepted each others' nuances. Bo...

    This was a wonderful book about the power and strength of friendship. Zadie and Emma meet in medical school, and through the years their friendship grows. Secrecy and self-doubt are wound throughout the timeline, and in the end, will their long, tangled rich friendship be enough to ove...

    Release date: February 13, 2018 4.5 stars! I LOVED this book! The Queen of Hearts is a book about doctors, written by a doctor. It was so good! The two main characters, Emma and Zadie, have been best friends since medical school. But something happens in their third year of scho...

    Thank you so much to Berkley Publishing for providing my free copy of THE QUEEN OF HEARTS by Kimmery Martin - all opinions are my own. This is one addictive read! The Queen of Hearts is a brilliant story about two best friends, Zadie and Emma, and a moving tale of friendship, love,...

    I loved this book! Not often will I read a novel based or involved in the area of Medicine as I spend so much of my time living and working within that world in reality. Often novel portrayals can be on two opposite sides of the spectrum, either incredibly unrealistic or too realist...

    The ingredients of this book are my ultimate kryptonite: long, windy, delicate but exacting sentence structure and accoutrement; emotional turmoil in a health care setting; biology based literary devices. I so sure this would be 5 stars but sadly the sum of the parts did not make a coh...

    Oh sooo good!! 4.5 Stars... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sometimes a book just hits you right. Touches all of your senses and emotions and maybe even shocks you a bit. When I started reading The Queen of Hearts, I was expecting just a women?s fiction. But this book is so much more. ...

    "If there's anything I've learned it's this: the past is never really gone. It's one long chain linking the present and also the future, and sometimes it doubles back on itself, exposing the things you thought were buried." This debut novel by Kimmery Martin is sharp, witty, beautif...

    Whip-smart and full of heart, Martin expertly weaves the threads of friendship, love and betrayal into a story that crackles with humor and compassion. The Queen of Hearts is a brilliant debut. ...

    Fans of Grey's Anatomy will LOVE THIS BOOK!!! This story focuses on Zadie and Emma - best friend since medical school - now in private practice with families of their own. Zadie is a pediatric cardiologist and Emma is a surgeon. When Nick, chief resident during their medical school ...

    OMG! 5 stars all over the freaking place! This was such an amazing book. It pulled at my "heartstrings" no pun intended. First off here's my wish.... I wish this was a movie and here is how my cast would be. Amanda Seyfried - Emma Joey Lauren Adams - Zadie Wayne Brady - Wyatt Jo...

    Told through Zadie and Emma's perspectives, the author takes us on a journey of their friendship... From when they hit it off the first day in their dorms as new roommates to decades later as lifelong friends, their "persons" and the only one who truly accepted each others' nuances. Bo...
