Spencer Mathews spent twenty years on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police force. However, the recent death of his former wife and crippling injury to his beloved daughter Devon in a car accident has left Spencer questioning his work, especially the use of force. Unable to cope, Matthews retires and takes a security job at Vancouver¿s St. Joseph Hospital. <P>The highly regarded Dr. Joanne Duncan works in the same hospital¿s emergency room. She meets Spencer when he disarms a drug-crazed teen holding a knife. Together they work on the birth of a girl to aspiring actress and single mother Natasha Stevens, but within two hours the infant vanished. A distraught Joanne, feeling she erred in the baby delivery, turns to the former criminal investigator for help in locating the missing child. As they work closely together in search of the lost infant, Spencer and Joanne fall in love, but he carries demons from his previous marriage that cold prevent him from trying for a second chance at happiness. <P>The sixth St. Joseph¿s Hospital novel retains the energy, excitement, and passionate romance of the previous tales. The story line is fast-paced and filled with reader empathy due to author Bobby Hutchinson¿s ability to engage the audience¿s feelings of anxiety while accompanying the lead couple in their quest. Joanne is a wonderful person and Spencer is a heroic individual struggling with guilt. The support cast, namely his family and the hospital staff adds depth to the plot and the main characters. Fans of medical romance novels will fully enjoy FULL RECOVERY and Ms. Hutchinson¿s five previous St. Joseph¿s novels. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
