Sunday's Book The Doctor's Dilemma #BWLAuthor #MFRWAuthor #romance #Medical #Nurse #doctor


Take one doctor who’s made a career of temporary positions and avoiding commitment. Add a nurse who dreams of security and a settled life. Stir in infant twins bequeathed to him by his dead foster sister. Pour them into a small Texas town that wants the doctor to stay.

To Dr. Neal McKay, it’s a prescription for a dilemma.

It took me about half the book to get into the story. It was almost too light and fluffy, and nothing much was happening. There were also some editing problems. Jack's constant use of "doggies" for the babies got irritating. "Shin" is not a place on a woman's back, and chocolate fudge pecan pie is usually known as German chocolate pie. From what I've seen, a fractured pelvis is not usually set. It is left to heal on its own or requires surgery. There were several puncuation errors and word misuses, like "not" for "now." The point of view changed suddenly in places, and there were all-knowing comments, such as "Before the interview was over he would know." There was one sentence I never did figure out the meaning. It read, "She opened her eyes and before she said the words, he believed her live." Nothing I could guess made sense with the story.

Despite these small problems, I ended up liking the book. It won't go down as a favorite, but it entertained enough for a short time. I appreciated the fact there was no sex or heavy profanity, although things were still steamy at times. It delivered a light, simple read, and sometimes that's okay.

I've always found medical romances fairly predictable. This one is not. When Nora Harte agrees to take orphaned twins to their guardian she doesn't expect the conflict of emotions the task creates, from developing a connection with the babies and an even stronger one with Dr. Neal McKay. Having moved many times as a child I understood Nora's yearning to settle down in one place, and also Neal's compulsion to keep moving. How these two sort out their differences makes for a very satisfying read.

I enjoyed this book but just had a hard time with the male character. He was a rolling stone and always moving yet he fell in love with these babies right away. It was at odds to me a little. Other than that it was a nice story.

This was a really fun read. The main characters wear believable, endearing, vulnerable & loving. The supporting characters were funny, nosy, busy bodies & totally in your face but in a loving way. Once again this is fiction if an author were to research every single thing that they said/wrote in passing no book would ever be published they would all be in school learning the correct procedures. Holy cow people. FICTION! Remember creative licensing. Enough said. All in all a cute storyline with solid characters.
