American Surgeon in London
Grace Turner, a plastic surgeon, starts a new job in the Hunter's Clinic in London. She is single and feels sure she will never find anyone to date or marry as she has a secret she hides.
Mitchell Cooper, also a plastic surgeon, who works at the Hunter's Clinic meets Grace and becomes friends. Mitchell has a young daughter, who he is raising alone.
Doing their best to stay friends and only co workers is becoming rather difficult for these two as they find many interests alike and once Grace meets Mia, Mitchell's daughter there is more problems as Grace really feels close to both Mia and her father.
The story line is very well written and very enjoyable which I will no go into as I do not want to spoil the story. It finally comes out the secret Grace is hiding is scars from a chemical burn and now can she overcome the fears she is dealing with because of them.
A very moving book and one I feel is so close to what many of the people in real life faces, scars and handicaps which they themselves can not accept and feel no one else will accept either.
I loved the book and the ending was so well done. I highly recommend this book when it comes out and was so pleased to have the chance to review it and tell my side of the book.
Further Harley Street delight
The fourth book in the 200 Harley Street continuity sees Grace riddled with low esteem, running from trauma in her native Arizona meet Mitchell - a plastic surgeon with a young daughter - who has been bruised by a messy divorce, at a fundraising event at the London Eye.
The two make an instant connection although neither is ready for commitment.
However it transpires they are work colleagues and find it increasingly difficult to keep any relationship platonic.
Both Mitchell and Grace are everyday likable characters and although somewhat low key Mrs Marshall develops the relationship nicely giving interesting insight into their innermost feelings.
There is some interesting background with characters from forthcoming books in the Series however I personally could have done with less of Mitchell's daughter Mia and I found the ending just a bit too sweet and twee but that's just me.
Overall I would say that I thought it was a very good read.

Lynne Marshall is one of those authors that has always been able to truly speak to me through her books. She takes ordinary everyday stories of romance and turns them in to the extraordinary!
In her latest read we meet Micthell Cooper, once he had it all, a beautiful wife, adorable daughter and a high class living it up Hollywood career, then reality came crashing through the golden doors and he moved to London with his little girl to try and rebuild their lives.
He meets fellow surgeon Grace and after one magical night together he falls for her hook line and sinker, only Grace hides a painful secret and she is in no way ready to reveal the scars. But Michell has his heart set on winning over the one and only woman that has given him a reason to live again, and there is no stopping until he wins her over.
The characters in this read were so powerful they captured my attention from start to finish. From the first introductions I was completely obsessed with them all, I craved the insight into their minds, aches and hurts so badly, and knowing this author has the ability to give it all with amazing flair I knew all I had to do was keep reading and I would walk away with everything I craved.
I not only walked away with it all I got so much more, a stunning blossoming romance, a message so powerful it will forever remain with me and the magic of being blessed enough to have this author's books in my life!
Through the character of Michell I learned that when life gets you down and all that you had seems lost to the perfect existence you carved out for yourself it really is not the end of the world, it is simply a chance to rebuild your life into something more spectacular then what you had. It might seem that everything you had was perfect but when you look back you will see it was simply a mirage of perfection, the true life of wonder lies in the secret of knowing when you find the true perfect things in life.
Through the character of Grace I learned that hiding our scars will only make the hurt fester into something that we will never get away from. Stand up and face it head on, it will be hard and for most it will take years to see that just being you with scars and all is not all that bad, somewhere out there is someone that is going to accept you for you. And just because you are able to heal other's problems but not your own , does not mean you are damaged or a failure, it just means that just like those you help you also require the help of others to help you through a problem.
I am taking away a message of everything in life happens for a reason, bad or good it is all part of the plan to shape us in to the people we need to be.
I highly recommend this read for all fans of romance reads, it was passionate, heartfelt and so wonderfully emotional it will remain with me for all my life!
