By Kathleen Grieve
Heart Surgeon Stone Lassiter has successfully transplanted beating hearts. It’s his own that is causing him the most agony. With a death bed promise to his fiancée, he’s driven to open a transplant center in her hometown, and arrives at Deerborne County General Hospital. Single minded in his focus, he inadvertently alienates the nursing staff he needs to make his dream a success. He sets his stethoscope on intensive care nurse, Faith Daniels, to improve his image. Nurse of the Year, Faith Daniels has passed every nursing exam, but when faced with the task of the MCAT, she has severe test anxiety. Burned by her ex-husband, who used her while she put him through law school, she has become focused on passing that darn exam, and achieving her own dream to become a doctor in her own right. Will the white lie Stone tells Faith jeopardize the love they find?
I found this book to be a cute and romantic book. It may have had a bunch of medical terms I was not sure of, but it didn’t take from the story. I fell in love with Stone and Faith and was cheering them on all the way to the end. The characters were well developed and I didn’t have to question anything. I recommend Ms. Grieve’s book to anyone who wants a little laugh and a lot of romance. I now want to know what happens with their friends Jolene and Chad.
