While all the stories Lynne Marshall writes that contain some medical references have been positive plus convincing, MIRACLE FOR THE NEUROSURGEON is her most heartwarming yet. So many factors dealing with having a spinal cord injury are explored, from physical complications to emotional issues, and each matter not only made the two main characters come across as realistic but also very likable. When I start a book by Lynne Marshall, I know the main couple will be facing several difficulties, but ...more

Lynne Marshall’s unique voice as a storyteller is in full force with “Miracle for the Neurosurgeon”, a captivating contemporary romance that will surprise and satisfy the romance lover’s imagination. The character in the title, Wes Van Allen, is stubborn, somewhat superior, and very sexy—a man used to having his own way. An accident which leaves him a wheelchair-bound paraplegic changes his life forever and forces him to adapt to a whole new lifestyle, and it challenges him to overcome and excel ...more

Wes Van Allen was a brilliant neurosurgeon until an accident put him out of commission and landed him in a wheelchair. Determined not to let him isolate himself from those that love him, his sister calls for reinforcements to get him out of his funk. Luckily, physical therapist Mary Harris, his sister’s best friend, has what it takes to get him back to fighting form and doing most of the things he loved doing before he got injured. Read More

I really enjoyed this story. It kind of reminded me of stories by my all time favorite author Betty Neels. Just a great feel good story. I also feel I learned from this story as it was about a topic new to me.

I definitely recommend this as a good happily ever after book!

In a world where money is no issue .... that was one of my thoughts

In any way the story felt superficial at best. There was no real depth to the characters. I am truely sorry that I could not feel any chemistry so therefore this is a OK read at best ...

Miracle for the Neurosurgeon by Lynne Marshall is a deep, emotional story that tugged at my heartstrings! The clarity with which Ms. Marshall writes instantly garnered my attention. I found her latest medical romance to be nothing short of heart-wrenching. The plot is unique and the main characters are not your typical leads. Mary Harris is a breath of fresh air and Wes Van Allen is a man who is tough as much as he is handsome. The journey towards the HEA hasn’t been a smooth ride, however, ever

An inspirational story of overcoming what life throws at you and finding a way to be all that you can be regardless! I really enjoyed this "feel good" story ... not only did we feel the genuine fondness that they felt for each other from the very beginning of the book, but as they let their guard down and shared their inner most thoughts and feelings with each other, we watched their inner beings strengthen and a personal depth shine through. Great characters, a solid plot and a top of the line ...more

Miracle for the Neurosurgeon by Lynne Marshall captivated me from the outset. I always learn something when I read a novel by Ms. Marshall and she definitely didn’t disappoint with this one. She does extensive research when writing her medical novels and it definitely shows. I loved reading about Wes’ vulnerability and Mary’s desire to help him. Even though Wes believed his life was forever changed by his accident, he learned how to persevere. As medical science progressed, he took advantage of ...more

Wow is all I can say. Miracle for the Neurosurgeon by Lynne Marshall is a brilliantly delivered story. It makes you think about your life and how lucky most of us are.

Wesley Van Allen, a neurosurgeon, became a paraplegic following a ski accident. Suddenly, his life changed from him being the golden boy with the brightest future to a man stuck in a chair for the rest of his life. Mary Harris, a physical therapist, has had a crush on Wes since high school but apart from a couple of scorching hot
Written with clarity and skill, not a word was wasted. The story of Wes and Mary is inspiring, emotional and completely engaging.

Miracle for the Neurosurgeon is just that touch more incredible because Lynne has that extra bit of inside knowledge that she can apply to her stories and make you feel completely caught up and engrossed in what's going on AS WELL AS learning something.

Stunningly written, emotions captured perfectly, two characters who already have a past and an interesting plot makes

Wonderful story. I was fascinated

I couldn't wait to read this story about a newly paraplegic doctor and how the woman who'd love him since she was fifteen, now a physical therapist, came back into his life as a friend to help him learn to deal with his disability.
I not only enjoyed the love story, I loved learning what can be done these days to help a paraplegic lead a full life, including once again enjoying lovemaking. Highly satisfying read. Thank you, Lynne Marshall, for another lovely boo

Lynn Marshall , your book " Miracle for the Neurosurgeon " it had my heart strings from the first words written.

Wesley Van Allen, was a "Golden Boy" at being a Neurosurgeon, the best in his field. UNTIL , one fatal day, one slip, one wrong turn and it was ALL GONE. The skiing accident left Wesley paraplegic what he thought was gonna be for the rest of his life. But MARY HARRIS , therapist, had other ideas for him.

Little did Wesley know that in the End of the Grand scheme of things, he would be

I like the Harlequin medical series and I accept that some books are better than others. I also like Lynne Marshall. This book was interesting to me since I know nothing about the sex life of a paraplegic. The book only had two characters. The remaining characters were so minor that they were non existent. I probably will not read This again. No, it was not worth the money. However, I am an escape reader and I did enjoy the escape on something interesting. I probably could have read a medical jo ...more
