This is a fantastic new medical thriller series. It had all the real life dealings of the behind the scenes of the Emergency Room in a hospital setting. I loved the Philadelphia location and how we get to know Lydia and her co-workers personally and outside of the hospital. I loved how they bonded and get to know each other. I hated for Lydia to wonder about the mystery of her mom's mystery. This medical thriller had a lot of action, drama and sparks of romance, all wrapped up in one in tense package.
