The Patient by Teri Terry

Due to a heart condition, Saphy is awaiting a transplant. Ever since the attack, Flora has been in a coma and has been declared brain stem dead. Receiving Flora's heart should have reinvigorated Saphy's passion for life, but instead she becomes fixated on Flora and her family. When some of Flora's organ recipients are under attack, she worries about her own life being at risk.

I loved it, especially because of the captivating cover that caught my attention, so I was eagerly anticipating reading it. The story was captivating, intriguing, and enjoyable. Saphy and Fern (Flora's sister) provide their unique perspectives in the story. The author did an excellent job of writing the characters, both main and secondary, and I felt a deep connection with all of them. I found the story to be enthralling, and it was enjoyable to puzzle out the events. I was pleased with how the story concluded, and the unexpected turns added excitement. Although the major action and attacks took longer to unfold, the rapid pace afterwards kept me engrossed in the story. A fantastic thriller all around.

Many thanks to @TeriTerryWrites @Netgalley & @bookouture for a spot on the tour.

I'm Teri Terry, author of both young adult and adult fiction.


For adults I write psychological thrillers, the sort that keep you awake at night. Sorry about that. Writing them has the same effect on me, so it only seems fair.


My YA books are also thrillers - some futuristic, some current - with a keen eye on characters and what makes them tick, a good splash of weird science and occasional flights of fantasy and the supernatural.


My YA books are available at all good bookshops and online sellers.


As for my adult books ... The Patient is out on 13th February 2024 with Bookouture! You can buy it here in digital, paperback & audio - in English, around the world. Fingers crossed that translation into other languages will soon follow.
