Kelli McCabe is a no-nonsense detective with a tough exterior. Only a select few know her as a loyal, loving friend. To a fault, she is committed to her family, friends and her job.
As a surgeon, Nora Whitmore is used to being in control. The hospital is her life. There is little else. Respected by her colleagues but ridiculed by the residents, Nora takes what she needs and keeps everyone else at arm’s length, creating unexpected enemies.
Tragedy brings them together in a clash of personalities. As the chaos around them continues, they find the lines between them blurring. A friendship forms, understanding grows, and attraction soon follows. Together, they may conquer their own misgivings, but will the outside forces keep them apart?
This was a really interesting story for me. I’ve always been a fan of medical type shows, so getting to read a book with a character in the medical field was a bit different for me.
I do want to say though that I wasn’t lost when it came to the medical talk because it was all explained very simply so that people like me with no medical experience could follow along and understand it.
I do also want to say that this book does deal with drug addiction with a secondary character – that did catch me off guard and I was a bit taken aback by it. However, it did add to the story, I don’t feel like the author just threw it in there for shock value.
I really loved how different the characters were. Kelli and Nora were complete 180’s from each other, but it ended up working out great for the story. Getting to follow along as Nora slowly started opening up and revealing more about herself was great. Kelli’s overall personality was one that was great as well because she is a no-holding back type of girl.
There was plenty of suspense going on in the book and that kept me turning the pages even quicker.
I would definitely read more from this author in the future!
