Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Mills and Boon Medical
Title: NY Doc Under the Northern Lights by Amy Ruttan
Author: Amy Ruttan
Publisher: Mills and Book
Published: October 4th, 2018
This is a real page turner read, with a talented surgeon, Betty Jacinth, travelling to work in Iceland for three months, just like her father did decades before. She’s going now because she’s ready for a change after the untimely death of her father and discovering that her now ex-boyfriend – and manipulative boss who used her skills and undermined her self belief to promote himself – is marrying someone else.When she arrives in Iceland she’s met by Dr Axel Sturlusson, someone she’ll be working with and whose father was close friends with her own.
Alex has issues of his own to contend with. He was the sole survivor of an incident in which his beloved older brother perished. Alex is suffering from PSTD and survivor guilt as well as trying to bring up his orphaned teenage niece, Eira, and cope with his own father’s awful attitude and behaviour to them both. Whilst he initially resents being given the added responsibility of sorting things out for Betty, she soon brightens the lives of both Alex and Eira. However, she’s only staying for three months. Can they overcome their fears and give their love a chance? You’ll have to read it yourself to discover what happens!
This is the first book I’ve read that has been set in Iceland and now I’d really like to visit to see if it is as lovely as the author’s great descriptions suggest. It is an engaging read that I didn’t want to put down. There are so many emotional barriers to this romance and just how they can be overcome make it an enthralling read. I’ll definitely be looking out for more by this author in future and have no hesitation in highly recommending this book to anyone who enjoys medical romances or stories where someone regains their confidence and is able to stand up for themselves again!
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Escaping the big city…
