Love where he least expects it…

GP Oliver James knows exactly what his ‘perfect bride’ should be like – and vibrant, unconventional new locum Lula Chance is the total opposite! Yet there’s something about beautiful Lula and the heartbreak in her eyes that intrigues him…

Lula’s determined not to be distracted by brooding bachelor Oliver… no matter how gorgeous he is. She’s arrived in Atlee Wold hoping to find her mother! But it’s only a matter of time before she gives in to the inevitable…

Love and surprises are found in all kinds of shapes and of course in the most unexpected of places. Much like everyone else in life GP Oliver James knows exactly what his " perfect bride" should be like - and vibrant, unconventional new locum Lula Chance is the total opposite of the image in his mind. But if there is one thing I have learned in life , it's that those little images of perfection we create in our minds are never what we expected them to be when they finally do emerge. And for the most part it of course has always left me thinking " Boy I did not see that coming !" and also " Really, that's what this picture is suppose to look like?" So course that is pretty much what Oliver ends up thinking when Lula and all her long list of imperfections she has that so does not fit in with his list , she intrigues him and there seems to not be a thing he can do about it, well except maybe go with the flow. The heartbreak in Lula's eyes are the clinger in this romance, it's what captures Oliver's attention and bounds him to her in such a tightly wrapped bubble of romance there really is no way he can get out of it. But Lula is determined not to be distracted by brooding Oliver, no matter how gorgeous he is or how caring he might seem to be. She's arrived in Atlee Wold hoping to find her mother and Oliver will for darn sure be the distraction from her quest that she cannot afford. But us romance fans know that giving in to the inevitable is only a matter of time and it's then that the sparks for these two characters really start to light up the night sky. And who knows, just maybe Lula can fit into that perfect little image of perfect bride for Oliver, after-all. This read was one of those that simply shine from start to finish. It had the perfect heroine that 's quirky, different in all the ways real heroines in life are, that for the most part are sometimes completely lost in romance reads. You know the type I am talking about, the " Really, that's what she just did, which normal person does that?" As for Oliver , I wanted to grab the nearest bedpan and hit the man over the head. Dreaming up an image of the perfect bride is just about one of the dumbest things in life anyone can do, but I totally enjoyed seeing him get knocked down by Lula and her definitely non-perfect-bride attitude. She puts him in his place and it was totally off the hook awesome! A truly wonderful, captivating read with a beautiful message of life not always being exactly the way we want it to be and of course that all things in life even our perfect images of love and success does not always quite look the way we dreamed them to be, but they are always for darn sure ten times better! 5/5 star review " He sees her, she sees him. But will they see the real person inside ?"

Mrs Heaton maintains the high standard of her debut novel with this compelling follow-up. Although set in a sleepy English village this was fast-paced and filled with incident and the closing chapters were outstanding . Oliver and Lula were charismatic everyday characters - Oliver especially bowled me over! Plenty of medical detail but one of the plotlines was sketchy and left unfinished. Nevertheless a superior Medical. Ten out of ten
