About the Author

A big believer in happily ever afters, Jen Doyle decided it was high time she started creating some. She has an M.S. in Library and Information Science and has worked as a librarian, an events planner, and an administrator in both preschool and higher ed environments (some might say that there is very little difference between the two; Jen has no comment regarding whether she is one of the “some”).

I felt so bad for Karen through so much of this book. It is obvious that while her friends do what they can she’s not had the support she needs throughout her career. It’s hard enough being a doctor but the things she sees could break anyone. It takes a bit for Tuck to figure out that something is missing for her (and of course he has to have a few man moments) but when he does he steps up like the awesome guy he is. It’s not easy because she fights him every step of the way :) But he’s tenacious and willing to be patient when he needs to be. Everyone should be so lucky to have that kind of person to be at their side. *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. ***

Holiday House Call by Jen Doyle, is a nicely written romance with an engaging story-line. The two main characters, neurosurgeon Karen Carmichael, and police chief John Tucker, are likable and interesting. Both have some emotional baggage that they need to work through in order to form a lasting, loving relationship with each other. Six years ago when they both lived in Denver, Karen and Tuck flirted in a bar, which resulted in an amazing night of passion in the back of Karen's old pick-up truck. They rediscover each other in the small town of Inspiration Iowa, where they now call home. Karen has no desire to get involved for fear of getting hurt, and Tuck only wants to prove to her that he won't hurt her. Along the road to happiness, Karen has to deal with the overwhelming sadness that comes with her job and Tuck has to learn how to be her rock. Ms. Doyle combines excitement, longing, and honesty into this holiday treat. I immediately connected with both Karen and Tuck, and there was never a moment that I did not want them to be together. Most of the people of Inspiration are kind, and their personalities added a lot to the plot happenings. Overall, a solid read. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

LOVED, loved, loved!! These characters are wonderful and just what the other needs. Karen, the serious neurosurgeon gives herself a day to cry off the stresses of her job. Of course that's the day that Officer Tucker has to pull her over for her bad driving. Tuck of all people. Her one night stand from six years ago that she's never forgotten. Of course he can't even remember her name. Perfect. True, he couldn't remember her name at first but he definitely remembered the woman. Now that she's living in his town he really wants to get to know her. Convincing Karen to give him a chance might be a challenge but he's definitely up for it!! A great read that should be on everyone's holiday reading list. I highly recommend it.
