Secrets and second chances

First of all, this was a bad blurb. Neill DID know about the baby and his daughter Morgan DID NOT want them together until the very end.

I had a hard time connecting with Neill and Sherri. Both of them seemed to be rather immature and selfish at the beginning, though they did change somewhat. They had dated through their senior year in high school, when Neill went off to Boston to med school. He wanted Sherri to go with him, even though he had no way to support her and he was going to school. Mea

Everyone is sick or dying in this book which completely overshadowed the romance. The on again off again relationship with endless conversations about the same issues made the plot line frustrating and boring. It felt like the author was purposely introducing drama to keep the main characters apart till the very end... and then magically every complication disappears in the last three pages and the main characters get engaged. It made no sense to me. The characters seem to be eating all the time ...more

Surprisingly good

I must say how surprised I was too see well rounded characters . They were flawed but I see them everywhere . Author did her research both regarding medical profession & aid regarding medical issues . I enjoyed the book very much . Look forward to next installment.

Did not through 30 pages..and will not even sell this for credit.
Too much negativity is thrown at the reader all at once; I don't read romance to get depressed!
Why did this pass the editors?

I fell in love with reading at a very early age, mostly because my mother was a school teacher and she insisted that my sisters and I be able to read really well. It wasn't until a career change that I was able to embrace my joy of writing. I'm happiest when I'm writing. I will always write. I can't help myself. The stories in my head have to reach the page, regardless of how commercial or marketa ...more
