About the Author

Carol Ross lives with her husband and two dogs (a perfect border collie and a perfectly loveable miscreant of a dachshund) in a small town in Washington near both the ocean and the mountains. She loves the Northwest because, when the temperamental weather cooperates, she enjoys hiking, running, skiing, and spending time outdoors. And when it doesn’t…she dons a raincoat, or gets lost in a book. She enjoys reading in many genres but writes about what she loves the most-romance.

"In the Doctor's Arms" follows Iris and Flynn on their path to romance. Iris is a triplet, and she was heavily bullied and made fun of growing up. It left her with some complexes and a need to get away from the small town in Alaska where she lived. She is back in town but only temporarily for her brother's wedding. She has a PhD in economics and is dreaming of a job in a DC think tank. Flynn has been her friend (and crush) since high school. Flynn is now a resident in his grandfather's practice and hopes to buy it from him someday. He has figured out he has a crush on Iris, but he isn't sure how to turn it into a relationship. When the opportunity presents itself at the wedding, he pretends to be her boyfriend and gives her a kiss. Soon, he plans to turn the fake relationship into a real one. There is a minor amount of push and pull between this friends-turned-lovers romance since they are clearly made for each other. With the added fake-relationship-turned-real trope added on, this is anything but boring. I loved watching them discover their mutual feelings and find love- even overcoming the obstacles of potential long distance (for the think tank in DC). Notably, as a heartwarming book, you won't find anything more than kisses, and it works really well here. I felt like there was more than enough plot with all of the above, but at the end, there's a wild twist that comes in and made me question their romance. I did not feel that it was necessary, and I did not like the compromises that had to be made to complete it. As it all arises at the end, it felt really rushed and too much to me. I felt like that plotline could have been its own book entirely and not been crammed into the end. I also liked their relationship with its struggles more before that event and consequences than after considering the particular compromise that was to be made (it's not really something I could see the compromise working out for). I would have preferred it be left out entirely, especially as there was more than enough before that to show the couple overcoming adversity, growing as individuals, and falling in love. Overall, I found it to be a solid romance and would have given it five stars without the end twists and turns. It definitely made me want to go to Alaska!

In the Doctor’s Arms was a sweet and clean novel that dealt with many issues, including the lingering effects of bullying, the importance of family, the art of forgiveness, and much more. The author handled these issues while infusing plenty of lighthearted moments and a wonderful second chance romance into the story. This novel is book six in the Seasons of Alaska series and I was impressed that I was able to jump right into this book without any confusion, even though I have not read any of the previous novels. There are many characters and family members in the story. It is clear that some of them have already had their happily ever after stories, while there are others who may get theirs in future books. Regardless, I was able to immerse myself into these characters’ lives and enjoy the people and the setting. I liked these two main characters and it was interesting to get to know them in this book, while also learning what each of them had been like in high school. Their romance was very sweet. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
