Escape to the Country: Intensive Care (Book #1)

0914 Intensive Care_Final

Escaping to the country was meant to be easy …

On the surface it looks like busy intensive care nurse Kate Kennedy has it all: a long-term relationship, a great career and a sleek inner city apartment. But appearances are deceiving, and in one fell swoop everything comes crashing down around her. In a moment of spontaneity, Kate leaves her city life and takes a new role as Nurse Unit Manager at Birrangulla Base Hospital, but her dream move proves harder than expected.

Local café owner Joel O’Connor finds himself increasingly drawn to the gorgeous new nurse, but like Kate, he’s been scarred by love and isn’t looking to jump into anything. Yet their chemistry is hard to deny and after a near fatal incident, Joel and Kate find themselves opening up to one another.

Just when Kate thinks she’s found love again, their fragile relationship is thwarted by their pasts. Can they both let go of their guilt and grief to move on to a bright new future?

Intensive Care kicks off with a Sliding Doors punch to the gut, but quickly becomes a fish-out-of-water love story as her heroine, nurse Kate Kennedy, moves to the country to put her past behind her, and meets local café owner Joel O’Connor, who is dealing with a past of his own. With evocative descriptions of both the Australian countryside and hospital procedures, this is a heart-warming debut from an author to watch.” (Romantic Intentions Quarterly, GoodReads)
