The first chapter of this book where the heroine arrives at a remote Scottish island grabs you from the start. Anyone who has a teenage daughter will recognise the character of Lexi and feel for her poor mother Jenna. Jenna, a nurse, has been treated hideously by her ex and has escaped to the fictional island of Glenmore dragging Lexi with her, kicking and screaming. The last thing Jenna's looking for is love, but in fellow medic Ryan (strong, not overly silent and with the world's most wonderful home tucked away by the sea) Jenna finds her nemesis. For Ryan is irresistible and Jenna must get over her own internal fears about getting into another relationship and the possible effects that might have on a very difficult and resentful daughter who has been torn away from all the mod cons of the city.
It's a shame that another reviewer has been offhand about this book by using the phrase 'seriously lacking in research' and 'lacking in medical insight'. The fact is, this is a romance - not a medical textbook. The medical side of it is perfectly believable and there is just enough medical content to put the characters in context. All the three main characters, Jenna, Ryan and Lexi grow and change to a satisfying conclusion and there is a great rescue scene to up the action. All in all, a very satisfying well paced read which does exactly what it says on the tin.
