Could Be Something Good
Dr. Daniel Durand wanted Winnie Baker the minute he laid eyes on her. Never mind that she's his attending physician's daughter, can't stand him, and she's a few years older than him. Giving up would've been the smart thing to do when the hot blonde midwife gave him the cold shoulder at the elevators his first week of residency at Santiam, b ...more
I really liked this novel, it's different from what I usually read.
Here, it's the female character who is older than the male character.
I loved that Winnie rebelled and chose her own path.
A lot of the scenes are cute, especially when Winnie's ex intervenes and Daniel marks his territory.
The pop culture references in the novel are just great.
There's a very nice dynamic throughout the novel. It's well paced; there are no big twists and turns, but the actions in the nove ...more
Picked this on a whim when I saw it on KU and it was a great decision. It has a very sweet older woman-younger man romance. The hero is adorable and 100% so into the heroine. I also really loved the secondary cast and look forward to reading their books!

This book is about Winnie and Daniel.
Winnie works as a nurse/midwife in the same hospital as Daniel, who is a doctor. This book is about love at first sight, age gap, dyslexia and being accepted for the choices you make.
I won't give spoilers, but i liked the chemistry between the main characters. I just wish that the depth of their feelings for each other was explored more. The author has done a great job with ...more
This book follows Winnie, a thirty-one-year-old midwife and Daniel, a twenty-something resident, both working at a rural hospital. For Daniel, meeting Winnie is love at first sight. For Winnie, however, the feeling is not mutual. At least, not really. But when Winnie needs a date to her mentor's wedding, she decides to bite the bullet and invite Daniel, mostly in an eff ...more
Dropped a star because part of the "tension" keeping the couple apart is a bet that they won't have sex for 8 weeks. And all I can say is that if they couldn't last 2 months immediately after they started dati ...more
Small town romance between a doctor and a doula/midwife. Younger man/older woman. Lovable side characters, I cared enough to check out their books.
I love cheesy romance but the hero was on the cringy side, I don't blame the heroine if she didn't find him attractive at all. Lots of fillers, to a point that this feels like it crammed a lot of things in one story and I wasn't a fan of the number of filler characters introduced to make you feel like you're in a small town where everyone kn ...more
I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Once again, I’m reading a genre that is very unlike me! I never read adult romance novels, usually because I have trouble finding clean ones, but I couldn’t resist the cute cover! It’s much better than the covers that most adult romances have. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book! The best part is that it was the first in a series of romance books that all take place in the same small town so I’m loo ...more
Small towns have a way of taking your heart, even when Winnie did not come to Timber Falls for anything but focusing on work. A midwife with a doctor for a mother as well, the last thing she needs is to fall for the younger doctor in her hospital.
Winnie and Daniel were a cute fun couple of characters and I really liked who they were as individuals and how they came together as a couple throughout the story. I thought West did a great job setting up all the characters ...more
I loved that the author made Daniel dyslexic and gave him the courage to not let it stop him from becoming a doctor. Winnie was intimidated by her mom, and at first, let it box her in. But Daniel brought her out of her shell, and it made her loosen up. Once she stood up to her mother, I think it allowed her mom to loosen up a little too.
I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
I liked this sweet romance a lot. But...there were a few things that gave me pause. First of all, I felt Winifred, the heroine, at 30, acted way older. Maybe that was a purposeful device by the author to make her seem out of date, isolated, and a loner. If it was, it worked.
If she intended to make the dyslexic hero who is a medical resident act like a nerdy teenager, she succeeded.
If she intended this b ...more
Winnifred and Daniel were great main characters. There was definitely a case of insta love from Daniel when it comes to Winnie but I still enjoyed the story because he has to work to win her over. Daniel was charming and patient. He knew when t ...more

I'm fairly new to reading adult romances, and have read around two or three at the most, so I didn't know what to expect going into this book. Honestly, it was so well written, so full of emotions and so relatable, that I couldn't help but love it! ❤️

Welcome to Timber Falls in the first of a 6 book series. We start off with not 1, but 2 [seemingly] hot doctors, while the women are in stereotypical “female” rolls (nurse, beautician, teacher, librarian) and the one female doctor is portrayed as a cold, tough character.
This has all makings of a small town romance. We learn how entangled this cast of characters is early on and you can’t help but be excite ...more
Could Be Something Good...could be something good! I really liked this book, but it wasn't a home run for me. I think because in the first chapter, the set up for Kyle and Ainsley's story was so POTENT, that I almost immediately lost interest in Daniel and Winnie's story. I can't wait for that one to come out because the longing on page is just...A+ level pining and I am a sucker for unrequit ...more
Dr.Daniel Durand has decided that he wants to get serious and find the woman of his dreams, he just didn't think she would be his attendings daughter. It was love at first sight for Daniel, Winnie stole his heart and then went on to blow him off, this however didn't stop Daniel. With the help of his older brother and dad, Daniel continues to pursue Winnie and prove t ...more
Wow! What a lovely surprise. I can't believe how good this book was, i think i'm rating it 4.5 stars but only because this one is very light on the steamy side and i would have loved for it to have at least one sex scene.
Could be something good is an amazing rom-com between a doctor and a midwife who work in the same hospital. I adored these two characters and espe ...more
Thank you to Net Galley and Fiona West for allowing me to read and review this book!
I'm a new Fiona West fan! Did you get that? This was my first book from her and I'm already in love!
Dr. Daniel Durand has just started his residency and while that's all fun and games, he can't get his mind off of Winnie Baker, one of the nurse/midwife's at the hospital. She might think that they shouldn't be together, but he's got different plans. He's going to crash her barriers and show her just ...more
This was such a cute story! Winnie is a midwife working at the same hospital Daniel is doing his residency in. He is smitten the first time he lays eyes on her, but she is determined not to fall for his charms – until she does, of course.
Daniel was just a great guy, so respectful and invested in his career and his relationship with Winnie. I also loved his family! The mother daughter relationship between t ...more

I thought Could Be Something Good was a cute and easy read. It is a Romance between a 31year old midwife and a twenty-something med student who meet because they work in the same small town hospital. The book is very much focused on the love story but dives into some other interesting themes: dyslexia, early death of a parent, age gap (in which the woman is the older party), difficult relationships between parents and their (gr ...more
