Read-a-thon review #14
This was an okay Harlequin romance. The writing was a bit too much “telling” instead of showing. I would also have liked a longer time with the folks in the small town of Forever. For me, the romance was secondary to the minor characters and the way they acted like one big family. And the heroine’s “guardian angel” really sounded like she could have been an actual angel. Intriguing!
Big-city radiologist Dan Davenport is ready to take New York by storm. But when an accident robs him of the most important person in his life, he decides to honor his brother by taking his place as the town physician in Forever, Texas—temporarily. He’s never been fond of commitment, but when he meets a beautiful young mother struggling to get back on her feet, he reconsiders.
Tina Blayne can’t afford to open her heart to another man, especially one itching to leave town at the first opportunity. Yet when she begins working at Dan’s clinic, she realizes the doctor’s got wounds of his own… wounds that require her special brand of healing.
