Six Sentence Sunday-Against Medical Advice


 Excerpt is from Against Medical Advice by Ruby Johnson~

Nearly in fianancial straits following a divorce, Marti Webb takes a job covering anesthesia in a small S.C. hospital  hoping for a fresh start. But then she discovers the administrator and pharmacist seem to be in collusion and she finds herself plunged right in the middle of a situation involving medicare fraud.

The trouble began when Don  said, " I need  tranquility and you need excitement."
 Life can be that way.  He moved in with Miss Tranquility, got excitement and most of my inheritance.  Now I, Marti Webb, needed peace. That’s part of the reason I was on Sullivan’s Island in a small beach house, the only real estate I still owned. But it’s a bit more complicated than that.
