Harmony has agreed to help her friend as a temporary nurse on a Scottish island. She had lost her grandmother in the year and wasn’t sure about spending the first Christmas without her, especially as her mum was going to Yorkshire to spend time with her new partner and his family and she didn’t want to be a third wheel! She is however lacking festive spirit. Oh and one thing I didn’t say, the island has a Christmas festival!
Cameron is the islands doctor, but also a bit of a daredevil adrenaline junkie, something Harmony isn’t sure about given her father who had a heart condition died whilst rock climbing and wanting to free climb
I enjoyed reading Harmony and Cam’s story, I could understand Harmony’s fears and could see why she did what she did. Her fears were almost too much for her and seeing if she can overcome them is a big part of the book.
Cam can’t understand Harmony’s fears, as she doesn’t tell him the reasoning behind it. I liked Cam, he cares about his community and the passion comes out from behind everything he does
I also adored the community on the island, it only had about 250 permanent residents but they all come together, especially for the Christmas festival. There are also some helpers along the way who make the story much more fun and interesting
I will say that there isn’t loads of medical scenarios, given that this a medical romance I was expecting a few more, but it does work well with the ones they have. Given the main focus is the community GP, the community focus is important, although I would have loved to find out more about some of the patients that they visit and their futures
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance with a festive feel and a strong community spirit
