Series: The Moore Sisters of Montana #3
Title: Doctor’s Orders by Ann B Harrison
Author: Ann B Harrison
Publisher: Tule Publishing

This is a lovely, sweet romance where opposites attract and dreams can come true!
Set in Cherry Lake, Montana, this story tells how April Moore joins the other Moore sisters in this town to set up her own design studio and florist business. April has always been the most impulsive of the sisters and they are somewhat skeptical about her new venture but they’re also there to support her. She’s renting the premises – and her flat above them – from her sister and has come to an arrangement where she’s going to decorate the whole premises. The other people sharing the site work in the surgery of Doctor David Morrison.
David initially returned to Cherry Lake to help whilst his Dad was ill. Unfortunately he died so David is keeping things functioning until he can sell his father’s family practice when he then plans to return to Seattle to live and work. He’s somewhat stuck in his ways and doesn’t respond to change easily – so with April about to make lots of changes his life isn’t going to be as predictable as he thought! Maybe change and spontaneity aren’t such a bad thing, after all, especially with the building attraction between this unlikely pair!
This story is a great, fun read, highly entertaining and delightful without being cheesy. The journey of April and David towards their own HEA is filled with fun, family and changes. Through the story, you can see April becoming more focussed and decisive about what she wants from life, prepared to take the necessary steps to help her achieve her dreams. Contrarily, David was so focussed on his plans initially that but the love of a good woman helped him change – though the arrival of his ex is definitely something to put a spanner in the works! I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys escaping into a very entertaining contemporary romance with a lovely setting and great characters.
I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
April Moore has always been an impulsive dreamer. So when she shows up in Cherry Lake, announcing that she’s there to stay and start her own business–a design studio florist shop–her sisters are pleased, but more than a little skeptical. A lot more than pride is riding on her new business adventure, and April doesn’t have time to get distracted, especially not by the handsome doctor who shares office space with her. Unfortunately, April’s never been one to keep her head down and opinions to herself, and she’s barely opened for business before she thinks her first design project should involve the quiet man next door doing his best to ignore her bubbly attempts at friendship.
For someone so young, Dr David Morrison is firmly set in his ways. He’s returned to Cherry Lake temporarily to take over his father’s family practice until he can sell it and return to Seattle to rebuild his life and career. He’s always played it safe and isn’t looking for change, fireworks, or romance. Unfortunately, the vivacious April embodies all three. Each meeting is like touching a live wire, and David finds himself entranced.
Opposites attract, but can they find a happy ever after?
