Combat doctor Ian Shupe returns home from overseas with his most important mission: to raise his little girl. But Ian’s a single dad, and working at Eagle Point’s trauma center means having to find child care. When bighearted, struggling lodge owner Bri Landis offers babysitting in exchange for construction work, Ian accepts. He vows to keep his emotional distance from Bri, yet can’t deny that his daughter is blossoming under her tender care. But is he ready to believe that his heart’s deepest prayer may finally be answered?
I absolutely adored this book. Huge kudos to Cheryl for her hero, single dad, Ian. At first I didn’t think I’d like him because he seemed a little hard around the edges, but man, as he started to soften up toward the heroine he became the perfect hero.
I love Bri. She’s fun and a bit quirky, even if she is a wounded heroine. I love how she breaks through to Ian’s little girl and is able to communicate with her on the child’s level. I especially love the way Bri talks to herself. 😉
The setting of Eagle Point had me ready to pack my bags and move.
Without giving any spoilers away, I do want to say that I loved that Cheryl was able to bring two wounded people together, one hard and loyal, one soft and somewhat of a wanderer, both lacking trust.
Doctor to the Rescue is a cute, quick read. It gave me a bit of insight into the trauma unit life, a better understanding of their chaotic world and those who support them.
I look forward to more Cheryl Wyatt books.
