a warm character driven tale
Everyone who meets Dr. Ivan ¿the Terrible¿ Munro detests him although he is recognized as the best neurosurgeon at Blaire memorial Hospital. Ivan likes saving lives, but ironically loathes people. Those forced to work for him fear his wrath as he is sarcastic and condemning especially of residents, nurses, and other medical professionals.------------ Bailey Del Monico is the latest resident trained by Ivan. He is nasty as always with his acerbic barbs about her incompetence. Although his ugly commentary hurts, Bailey refuses to show he intimidates her. Having grown up as part of a missionary family in Africa, she has participated in much worse than a few caustic comments. However, she also sees the vulnerability Ivan hides from everyone with his acerbic armor so she reaches out to him risking his slicing her arm and her heart.----------------- Ivan actually makes this a delightful contemporary medical romance as his terrible bedside manner is somewhat abated with a sharp dry humor. He meets his match in the Pollyanna of residents as Bailey refuses to back down. Marie Ferrarella provides a warm character driven tale starring two doctors in the house.------------ Harriet Klausner

A lovely book. Well written with fully developed characters. I wish it had been longer just because I liked Ivan the terrible and Bailey so much.
