The Best Medicine
Everyone in Bell Harbor thinks career-minded plastic surgeon Evelyn Rhoades needs a husband. Everyone, that is, except for Evelyn…sort of. Even if she did want a husband (which she doesn’t…most of the time), she’d never let something as intangible as fate determine who she marries. No, if she’s going to find someone to spend her life with, she’ll do it scientifically: with...more

Evelyn Rhoades aka Evie is a 35 yr. old single woman. She recently moved to a small town called Bell Harbor, where she works as a plastic surgeon. Evie is the newest Dr. in town, and spends most of her time working. She has always been a more serious person, who isn't carefree. She moves to Bell Harbor to be close to her best friend & colleague Hilary, and also to try to slow down a little, and enjoy the peaceful small town lifestyle. ...more
When Tyler lands in the Emergency Department after an accident on a stolen Jet-ski she feels an immediate twinge in the pants department...but on her perfect match meter he rates an absolute zero. ...more
Funny and definitely a stress buster book! The title says it all. It's a light read and a great change from all the hard, complicated stories I've read so far.
I was all smiles and laughs because of the characters and the point of view of the heroine is a winner. I loved Dr. Evie Rhoades witty expressions and comebacks.
A story about a beautiful and smart mid-thirty plastic surgeon who was looking or I might say, getting ready for Marriage or husband-to be because of all the pressures ...more
Once again, I laughed constantly. I literally had to put my hand over my mouth to hold back my chuckles, as people started staring at me.
I will say I liked the heroine in this story more than the first Bell Harbor novel, but if you like laugh-out-loud chick-lit, I'd recommend that you read both, especially since several of the characters from Book One make ...more
I really do have to commend Tracy Brogan on putting a good story together. The Best Medicine is the second book in the Bell Harbour Series, and in the main I enjoyed this book as much as I did book 1 – Crazy Little Thing.
As with any series set in a town it is always enjoyable to see the return of characters from the previous books. I loved Dody and Fontaine from Crazy Little Thing so it was great to catch up with them as well as Des, Sadie ...more
Received an ARC courtesy of the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first Tracy Brogan novel I've ever read and I can honestly say I haven't felt this way about an author since Emily Hemmer. Okay, that sounded creepy. Not a stalker, ladies, I promise! I'm just so excited to have found a book that can snag me emotionally while making me laugh out ...more
Things change when she gets called to do a consult for a sexy, young patient named Tyler. Just the sight of him makes blood rush to ...more
Another hilarious romantic comedy by Tracy Brogan for my collection! Tyler is not only going to have you swooning, but he'll definitely win your heart. What a hero! I also loved Dr. Evelyn Rhoades or Evie, which I prefer calling her, who is quite funny, but she doesn't know it.
Even though THE BEST MEDICINE is book 2 of the Bell Harbor Series, you can still enjoy it without having read first CRAZY LITTLE THING- Book 1. But, I highly ...more
Thank you to NetGalley and Amazon for the opportunity to read and review this book.
Tracy Brogan's writing style reminds me so much of Kristan Higgans, so if you're a fan of Ms Higgans, be sure to check out this author!!!!
Evie, a successful professional woman is being bombarded with messages from her friends and family that she’s somehow incomplete (or even a failure) because she isn’t married or doesn’t have a beau at age 35. And worse, she seems to buy into this nonsense. Now enter the hot male love interest who by accounts is a hot mess ...more
You just never know what you are getting into when you request an ARC for a "new to you" author. In this particular case, I truly stumbled across a gem because I am now a full-fledged Tracy Brogan fan. Her classical writing style is easy to read and "The Best Medicine" is the perfect combination of emotion, liveliness, humor and romance.
Evie Rhoades is a successful plastic surgeon and her biological clock kicked into high gear on her 35th birthday. Now that her professional goals have ...more
Plastic surgeon, Dr. Evelyn Rhoades, has not been in Bell Harbor long before small town living is catching up with her. Recently having celebrated her thirty-fifth birthday, her friends and colleagues seem to have decided to help her stay ahead of her rapidly declining years, by way of finding her a man. Granted, she has been a tad pre-occupied with her career thus far, but she hasn't had the shiniest of examples from back home either. Not completely adverse to the idea of ...more
Today was the day. I started reading in sometime in the afternoon and I couldn't do anything else today. I didn't even eat until 10pm, just to finish it. At some point i realized it's going to end, so I read it slowly, just to enjoy it longer. :)
It's amazing! It's ...more
It also bugged me that they tried to justify the way she started dating a patient by saying he'd switch doctors (picking up dates in the ER is a no-no). I also really didn't like the way ALL the staff at the office AND the ER acted like the patients were eye candy. It made me not ...more
Dr Evie Rhoades is 35 and has a list of reqirements for the perfect husband. That alone is funny. Up comes Tyler Connelly a patient in emergency after a drunken accident. He is perfect in her eyes--- especially his muscles and the rest ...more
