Book Review: Wedding Bells For The Village Nurse by Abigail Gordon

Wedding Bells for the Village Nurse (Medical Romance HB)Wedding Bells for the Village Nurse by Abigail Gordon

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I'm afraid this was the hardest book I've read all year. And it's a shame because it's my first ever medical Mills and Boon read. I picked it up thinking I usually devour Mills and Boons books in two to three days - not with this one!

I loved the setting, it being in Devon, but most of the time this book was very telling and not very showing. I never actually saw the relationship between the two developing, I was just being told about it. Therefore I found myself not caring.

I did finish it though. I know some would have said, put it down, start another book, but I thought it was only 183 pages, and I wanted to read a medical romance!

The general plot was a good idea, I just don't feel it was executed as well as it could have been. And I can't believe two people can go out for an evening meal, then go surfing at night - in the middle of winter!

I've been in Devon's waters. They're bloody cold in August!

Thankfully, I didn't buy this book. It was out of my RNA conference pack. I've given it two stars, because I'm not sure I can be so mean to give one. If you're happy to be told the story, with point of view changes within the same scenes, and there seemed to be an omniscient point of view at times, then this is maybe the book for you.
