Forensic pathologist Margo Nolan is wholly unprepared when she is named guardian to a girl she once loved as her own. Struggling to balance her professional life against sudden parenthood, she has no clue how to reach out to her ‘daughter,’ Emma. Complicating matters is the sexy—and much younger!—doctor-next-door, Jamie Gillespie.
Jamie Gillespie volunteered to step in for his uncle, the village doctor—in part as a favour to the older man, and in part to stick it to his father’s lofty ambitions for him. The last thing he expected in this sleepy part of Surrey was to meet the tough and seemingly cold Margo. Everything about her aloof manner should push him away, but he cannot ignore his attraction for the woman or his need to help her out.
The question is—can Jamie overcome Margo’s reticence towards love and build a proper life with her & Emma? Or will she let old fears and prejudices keep the hunky village doctor at arm’s length?
Warning: Contains thoroughly British sensibility and humour, as well as a charm-your-socks-off doctor, tween angst, & a damsel not-exactly-in-distress but who’d welcome the help, anyway …
“Here we get a sweet, hypnotic romance set in a wonderfully charming place with extremely memorable characters, a solid, likable plot, and fantastic chemistry between Jamie, the sexy new doctor and Margo, a spirited woman who has her fill of trouble thanks to the teenager she is in charge of.” – Amazon reviewer
