Lip Reading

I received a copy of Lip Reading by Harry Kraus from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  
She Could Save Millions, or Save Herself She just needs a little longer. She’s really close. Dr. Rebecca Jackson, a medical researcher, stands on the verge of a breakthrough that will transform medicine. But she soon discovers the reason behind the miraculous progress in her research, and it leaves her with a nearly impossible choice . . . and little time to decide. More than her research is at stake. And more threatens it than this latest revelation. Something she’s tried hard to cover up. There is a high cost to some things in medicine and it’s not always the patient who pays. Can Rebecca find the faith and wisdom she needs to make the right call? The clock is ticking and the pressure is on.  
This book was very easy to get into from the beginning.  There was a lot of medical research terminology but it didn't hinder the story line at all.  As we learned more about the characters and their history the more intrigued I became.  I love how both Rebecca and Noah have a terrible experience in high school and they both come out of it with a life long goal to focus on a way to save millions of lives.  What they don't realize at first is they're both working on the same goal but from different angles.  Once they put money and fame aside they find out how much faster the goal is met when working together.  I have to admit I really didn't like the ending.
