Nurse’s One-Night Baby Surprise by Louisa George

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The trials of a modern family 
Following the death of his daughters mother and her getting into trouble with the police in London, Fraser and Lily have moved to the Lake District where Lily’s mothers best friend and Lily’s godmother Briana lives 
I liked Fraser as a character, he is a dedicated dad and he puts Lily first even though he does have trouble with her adjusting to their new life and being a teenager. He doesn’t want to be attracted to Briana but he can’t help it and with her he learns so much about himself and what he wants from life 
Briana has been hurt badly in the past and she has problems trusting people however she wants to build a relationship with Lily and make sure that she has a female influence in her life to support her and be there for her. She perseveres with Lily and I really liked this part of her character, she supports people to become better people through her work as a school outreach nurse and some of her anti bullying techniques sound like they could translate to the real world. Her trust issues and anger towards Fraser makes their relationship harder and although I understood the reasoning behind it, I still struggled at times with this part of her character. She wants to be safe and in control of her life which can be destructive behaviour but can also make her a stronger character as she begins to trust again 
I’m not going to lie, I found the premise of this book a little weird, Briana has a relationship with her dead best friends co-parent which felt a bit strange to me and made it harder for me to connect to the characters. However this book did catch my attention and I ended up reading it in one evening. The focus is on the relationships between Fraser, Briana and Lily, how things can change and how challenged can both draw you together but also force you apart 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance in a fabulous setting that focuses on the lives of the characters and how relationships evolve

Night Shifts with the Miami Doc by Ann McIntosh

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What is more important, career or love?
Regina has taken some time off from her normal hospital to work at one in Miami in Florida for a short contract and whilst there she bumps into Mateo who she worked with when he was a student 
I liked Regina, she is incredibly driven and wants to be Chief of Medicine at her normal hospital so has a plan on how to get there but she doesn’t count on Mateo making her feel things and he starts to break through her icy facade
Mateo was an easier character to like, he raised his adopted siblings after his parents died and he had to almost put some of his life and dreams on hold so he could do that. He doesn’t want anything long term in terms of relationships but things with Regina may make that a difficult pledge to stick to! 
Both Regina and Mateo are dedicated doctors and this came across when I read about their interactions with their patients. They know what they are talking about and their bedside manner is really good. This book also looks at some of the more specialised hospital patients instead of being an emergency room and it was really good to follow some of the patients through from the start in their treatment and diagnosis without it feeling too overpowering 
I think that this book would probably appeal to those who enjoy reading romances with a lot of drama and some really strong character personalities who will capture your heart and attention

Awakening His Shy Vet by Shelley Rivers

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A book that makes you look under the surface 
Ruby is a vet but she is also a goth which have put a lot of vet practices off but she gets a chance at a job in Dorset and whist she is there she meets Kern who used to train racehorses but who is now back on his families farm 
I liked Ruby, she doesn’t look like the traditional vet but every time she is with a patient she completely focuses on them and understanding the problem. She has been hurt badly in the past and this has a huge bearing on her. I enjoyed learning more about her and understanding her story which made me love her quite quickly
Kern has left the racing world in disgrace and has come back to Dorset as it’s the only place he has left. It was harder for me to get to know Kern as more of the book was set from Ruby’s perspective but it also helped me to like him when seeing him through Ruby’s eyes 
Both Kern and Ruby have been hurt in the past and this brings them closer together. Unsurprisingly a lot of the book is linked to horses and I think this really works as it gives the reader a better understanding of what is important to Ruby and Kern and why, it also helps force them together when they otherwise might have avoided each other 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a vet romance with characters who develop so much into the people that they can be and whose journey you will love being on

Christmas Under the Northern Lights by Annie O’Neil

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Audrey has come to Bourtree Castle, a Scottish island village, as a cover for the islands nurse, the doctor she works with is Cooper who grew up on Bourtree and doesn’t have the best memories of his time 
Audrey is running away from her life in London, she caught her fiancée cheating on her and knew she needed to get away and Scotland seemed a good choice. I loved how Audrey developed throughout the book to become more self confident and her care for her patients came through so strongly. She manages to find the space and time she needs to think about what she really wants in life. Although the story comes from Audrey and Coopers points of view you could feel the love the islanders have for her coming through and how they welcome her into their community 
Cooper also learns a lot about himself throughout the book and it allows his confidence to grow. He may have at times had a difficult past but the islanders accept him as their new doctor, although there are some teething problems on the way! I did struggle with Cooper at times, I think my main issue was his how much he kept bottled inside which affected him and made him at times a more difficult character to understand 
I loved the setting of this book, a remote island off of Scotland where the lack of light pollution allows the Northern Lights to shine through which felt magical and made me adore it even more. I think part of the appeal is actually the islanders themselves, the brought the setting alive and made the story work so well 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance where the main characters have to overcome emotional adversity but in an amazing setting which will keep you turning the page

The Heart Of Doctor Steele by Colette Dixon

The Heart Of Doctor Steele Cover

Are the rumors about him true? She intends to find out. 

The mysterious Dr. Steele has taken up residence next door, and scandalous rumors about him are spreading through Margaret Landeau’s small Massachusetts town. Rumors of women he’s ill-used and exploited for his experimental surgeries. Never one to believe gossip, Margaret arms herself with a basket of baked goods and ventures to discover the truth from the man himself.

John Steele has lost everything. His parents, his aunt, too many women he intended to save, and his good name. All he has left is his aunt’s home in a far-flung village and a library he’s stocked with whiskey. He has nothing to offer anyone. Especially not the bold woman next door whose passion for healing reminds him of the man he once was.

But when a dangerously ill girl arrives on his doorstep, pleading for help, Margaret is thrust into his world. She will learn who the real Dr. John Steele truly is, and soon, not even his dark past can stop her from fighting for the brilliant doctor she now loves. But he must deny his crushing desire for her—loving a man like him can only cast a shadow over her own bright future.

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

John Steele has been banished from Boston and tarred with the label of a monster for his treatment of women. Now living in a smaller town his neighbours are reserving judgement until they know the full facts, especially one of the daughters, Margaret 
John is an early form of what we would know these days as a gynaecologist but at the time is thought as nothing worse than abuser of women and a butcher if surgery is performed. He is in hiding because of his experiences in Boston and struggles to cope with life, especially as gossip travels fast and far. His isolation is disrupted by Margaret being determined to welcome him as a neighbour and it is thanks to her that he slowly starts to come out of his shell and become more self assured. I liked John as a character, he is a times hard to understand but I think this works so well, he is mysterious and hard to know which I think added to his appeal to me and made me love him as a character 
Margaret dreams of being a doctor and throughout the book her determination shines through. She challenges the societal norms and pushes the boundaries of what is meant to be possible for a female in a way that shows her strength of character. She doesn’t judge people based on gossip but instead chooses to make her own assessments. She is kind and caring and would do anything for her family which made her a fabulous character
This book deals with some difficult subjects but also looks at the development of medicine and the people behind that. The characters work so well together and this along with many other things kept me reading 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy unconventional stories with a huge amount of character development which you will adore

Falling for the Secret Prince by Alison Roberts

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dom and Emilia have been competing against each other to be the best since they were in medical school and now they are working together at Seattle General Hospital but a car accident is about to change everything for them 
I loved Emilia as a character, she has been through so much in her life and is determined to put the past behind her. She is smart, talented and very good at what she does but she also has a vulnerable side which while she keeps hidden is there and which influences who she is and what she does
Dom has a secret, he is a prince but his family has allowed him to come to America to learn to be and to practice as a doctor. Then his father is in an accident and Dom will need to resume his royal duties. His closest relationship is with Emilia and he lets her into his secret which does scare him but he also realises that he wants to spend more time with her before he leaves. Dom doesn’t let this secret stop him being really good at his job or from challenging Emilia to be the best. He is aware of his responsibilities but he is also so normal which made me love him 
There is a lot of medical detail in this book which I personally loved reading about, most of it focused on traumas and what has to be done both when the person arrives but also some of the challenges that the staff face in the battle to keep their patient alive. Both Emilia and Dom as so passionate about their work and this comes across so strongly and I found myself pulled into the drama and caring about the patients and what would happen with them next 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a medical romance with some fabulous characters and the possibility of a Cinderella story

The Vet’s Secret Son by Annie O’Neil

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ellie owns a high tech vet practice in Cornwall with her best friend Drew and her young son Maverick but Drew has had a horrific car accident and the person who is coming to help out in the clinic is Lucas, her ex fiancé and the father to her son
I adored Ellie, she is bright and loving. Her vet practice is more of a community centre with a petting zoo than just a traditional practice, she also cares just as much about the people as animals and has huge respect in the community
Lucas was a bit harder to figure out as it didn’t make sense initially why of all the vet practices he would go to hers after he hurt her so badly but once I understood why his reasoning made so much more sense. He cares a lot and just wanted to make Ellie, and once he found out about him, Maverick happy
I loved the descriptions of the patients and the surgery’s that Ellie and Lucas have to deal with from a breach alpaca birth to wild horses and a dog who ate a bucket of less weights as well as the more traditional cases which was so interesting and caught my attention pulling me deeper into the book 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance with fabulous characters, both human and animal, as well as a look into if it’s possible to learn to love again

Snowflakes Over Bay Tree Terrace by Fay Keenan

Snowflakes Over Bay Tree Terrace HI RES

As the snowflakes fall, new love blossoms…

When teacher Florence Ashton receives a surprise inheritance, she decides to make the life-changing decision to up sticks to the charming town of Willowbury in Somerset. With a new house and a new job, she’s too busy putting down roots to think about love.

Air Ambulance pilot Sam Ellis is definitely not looking for romance either, especially not on his doorstep. When Florence, his new neighbour, complains about his noisy housemate, he feels more cross than star-crossed.

But as the nights draw in and both find themselves thrown together in Willowbury’s seasonal drama production, will they overcome their differences and allow a little bit of winter magic to fall along with the snow? And what secrets will be revealed by the box of memories Florence finds in the attic at Bay Tree Terrace?

Let Fay Keenan transport you to the perfect country winter wonderland, with roaring firesspectacular scenery, and unforgettable characters.  Perfect for all fans of Cathy Bramley, Fern Britton and Katie Fforde.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sam and Florence don’t get off to the best of starts, his brother keeps her up all night playing guitar through an amp. When she goes to complain the next morning she meets Sam, the local air ambulance pilot. English teacher Florence is dragged in to help in a local production of a Christmas version of Much Ado About Nothing by one of her colleagues. She is reluctantly cast as Beatrice and Sam is even more reluctantly cast as Benedicks understudy but forces bring them together 
I liked Florence as a character, she knows what she wants but is also new to the area and it’s taking some time to adjust. She quickly forms friendships and settles in to local life. She does however unconsciously keep part of her teachers voice and persona on even when not at work which can make things interesting. She likes Sam and his brother Aidan from early on and seeing her relationships develop with them makes her feel much more human
I loved Sam, he was nervous about Florence, he really likes her but finds it hard to share his feelings as he was in the Navy and his job as an air ambulance pilot means that he has kept his feelings bottled up for years and now caring for his brother he is determined to show a strong facade. Sam adores Florence and seeing him develop as a character was really good and pulled the story together properly 
This book looks at the magic of Christmas and how a nightmare may actually be the best thing that has happened to you
I liked how this book also focused on the air ambulance. In the UK, as far as I’m aware, all air ambulances are funded by donations not the government but the crew and staff will be there when you need them the most, when your life could be in severe danger so please do consider supporting your local air ambulance if you can, whether that be by donations, attending open days, fundraising or even just spreading the word that they aren’t government funded then I’m sure they would appreciate it
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story with a brilliant cast of characters and a hero and heroine who will warm your heart

Fighting for the Trauma Doc’s Heart by Rachel Dove

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A well written book that looks at the difficulties that people can face
Michelle and Jacob are trauma doctors both vying to be the head of the new trauma centre but both have their own secrets. Michelle is battling PTSD as a result of her overseas tours and Jacob has an autistic daughter that he needs to protect 
I loved both Michelle and Jacob and their stories work so well together. He is the one who gets her to even consider therapy and she is the person who he isn’t sure he can live without (blurb extract not a spoiler!) 
They are both so human and well written that you can feel the leaping off the page and you can see the intensity and drama that is the backdrop to their story. They both, but especially Michelle, develop so much in the story and the issue of mental health isn’t hidden but is instead treated respectfully and in an honest manner which I liked 
Set in a busy trauma centre in Surrey the medical details flow and work so well but may not always be suitable if you don’t like a lot of detail in what has happened to people (uk readers think 24 hours in A&E)
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a well written medical romance with lots of drama and characters who are so real

Awakened by Her Brooding Brazilian by Ann McIntosh

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was interesting, looking into a world I didn’t know much about, that or reconstructive facial surgery and the innovations that have happened over time
Krysta is an incredibly bright surgeon and brilliant who dedicated her life to her research and her job but when she is on a teaching placement in Brazil she starts to see things in a different way. Krysta develops a lot over the course of the book and it’s good to see how she becomes more confident and happy within herself
Francisco almost hero worships Krysta and was desperate to get an introduction to her when she first came to Brazil. He is a dedicated surgeon with a playboy reputation but his fascination with Krysta makes him interesting and his perspective shows him becoming more natural as time goes by
I will admit that there was something I really struggled with with this book, I’m not quite sure what but I struggled to bond with the characters, however I have loved other books by this author so maybe I’m just having a bad day! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a book which focuses on character development and the importance of being yourself with a fascinating medical background
