Having spent the last twenty-something years with her nose in a textbook, brilliant and driven Norah Kapadia has just landed the medical residency of her dreams. But after a disastrous first day, she's ready to quit. Disgruntled patients, sleep deprivation, and her duty to be the "perfect Indian daughter" have her questioning her future as a doctor.

Enter chief resident Ethan Cantor. He's everything Norah aspires to be- respected by the attending physicians, calm during emergencies, and charismatic with his patients. And as he morphs from Norah's mentor to something more, it seems her luck is finally changing.

But when a fatal medical mistake is made, pulling Norah into a cover-up, she must decide how far she's willing to go to protect the secret. What if "doing no harm" means putting herself at risk?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Norah Kapadia is hoping to follow in her father's footsteps by becoming a great doctor, but her outlook isn't promising--especially after she accidentally sticks herself with a needle. Plus, being on call is far from glamorous, with the sleep deprivation (she's learned to sleep sitting up) and having to take on the least-appealing jobs. However, when her attending doctor, Ethan Cantor, comes on the scene, he's both a potential mentor for Norah, as well as easy on the eyes. Ethan and Norah's work relationship quickly becomes more, until a medical mistake puts both of their careers on the line. Sinha's debut is a culturally diverse novel full of medical jargon interspersed with a love interest, an affair, and more. Norah's relationship with her Indian family is examined closely, especially as her mother is concerned that Norah hasn't found a nice Indian man to settle down with. Norah and her chaotic hospital work keep the story moving at a fast clip. The combination of women's fiction and soapy relationships in a hospital setting make this a good match for fans of Grey's Anatomy."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Physician Sinha sparkles in her enjoyable and realistic debut about an ambitious 26-year-old Indian American medical resident going through training. Norah Kapadia is facing a lot of pressure to be the perfect Indian daughter and a standout student. On top of that, she feels awkward around men in social situations and painfully aware of still feeling like a shy teenager. After she lands her prestigious internal medicine residency spot at Philadelphia General Hospital, she's excited to get started--even more so once she meets the chief resident, Ethan Cantor, who starts out as Norah's mentor and soon becomes the funny, smart, and charming man of her dreams. But as Norah learns, looks can be deceiving. After a member of their team makes a major mistake resulting in a patient's death, Norah is forced to choose between covering up for her colleague and telling the truth--which may get her fired. The author writes with the expertise of a physician who has slogged through her own residency and training, realistically depicting the insane hours, the need to make life-changing decisions in moments, and the camaraderie among classmates. All dutiful daughters and hard workers will see themselves in Norah. Sinha's tale is one to savor. (Sept.)"
