Overview

Clinical and rational, forensic pathologist Margo Nolan is wholly unprepared for sudden parenthood when she is named guardian to a tween that she once loved as a daughter. Struggling to balance her professional life against sudden parenthood, Margo is at a loss of how to reach out to her ‘daughter’ Emma. Complicating matters is the sexy doctor-next-door Jamie Gillespie.

Jamie Gillespie volunteered to step in as village doctor for his uncle—in part as a favor to the older man and in part to stick it to his father’s ambitions. The last thing he expected was to meet the tough and seemingly cold Margo, but he can’t ignore his attraction for the woman or his need to help her out.

The question is—can Jamie overcome Margo’s reticence and build a proper life together or will she let old fears and prejudices keep the sexy village doctor at arm’s length?


Warning: Contains a thoroughly British sensibility and humor, as well as a charming doctor and tween angst…

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer - Marianne Petrino-Schaad
"Well crafted gentle romance. Margo Nolan, Forensic pathologist, certainly does not need men in her life. She is a fully adult woman who has taken on the care of a dead friend's Emma's tween daughter. Sexy Doctor Jamie, new to town, is a fresh breeze that indicates a sea change for the hard working woman. Her journey to allow herself to find a soft place to take a rest from her labors and her pains is one well worth taking."
Reviewer - Natalie Guillaumier-Owens
"This is not the first book I've read by Zee Monodee, and in this, as in other works of hers, I see her masterful touch with characterization. This book is so different from her romantic suspense offering, the edge-of-your-seat plot of Walking the Edge from the Corpus Brides series. Calling Home is not about a sweeping adventure, epic quest or heart-stopping action. Here, however, it really shows how the author is a pro at building memorable, believable characters that creep into your heart..."

Meet the Author

Stories about love, life, relationships... in a melting-pot of culture

Zee is an author who grew up on a fence - on one side there was modernity and the global world, on the other there was culture and traditions. Putting up with the culture for half of her life, one day she decided she'd stand tall on her wall and dip toes every now and then into both sides of her non-conventional upbringing.

From this resolution spanned a world of adaptation and learning to live on said wall. The realization also came that many other young women of the world were on their own fence.

This particular position became her favorite when she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing - her heroines all sit 'on a fence', whether cultural or societal, in today's world or in times past, and face dilemmas about life and love.

Hailing from the multicultural island of Mauritius, Zee is a degree holder in Communications Science. She is married, mum to a tween son, & stepmum to a teenage lad.
