A summer in Jewell Cove leads ER doctor Lizzie Howard to discover there’s more to life than living up to expectations in the latest title by New York Times Bestselling Author, Donna Alward.
When Lizzie Howard’s best friend asks if she will cover her maternity leave in a small-town medical practice, Lizzie almost refuses. But with her career as a top ER doc in jeopardy and a failed relationship in her rear-view mirror, maybe a change of pace is exactly what she needs. Her boss is a veteran and widower, and Lizzie’s relieved there’s no chance of a distraction as she gets her life back together.
Josh Collins returned to Jewell Cove after his wife was killed on deployment. Now he runs the town’s medical clinic and puts up with his family’s meddling to find him a new wife. The new doctor is definitely not his type—she’s not into small towns or the slow pace of family medicine. Which is fine. If he falls in love again, he’ll do it at his own pace.
A trip to Lovers’ Island on a summer afternoon changes everything. It’s more than just passion between them, but Josh doesn’t trust Lizzie to stay, and Lizzie can’t let go of her dream to return to her life-in-progress. When that opportunity arrives in the form of her old boss and lover, will she take it and leave Jewell Cove—and Josh—behind?
