Kelli McCabe is a no nonsense detective with a tough exterior. Only a select few know her as a loyal, loving friend. Committed to her family, her friends, and her job, Kelli puts her needs behind everyone else’s.
As a surgeon, Nora Whitmore is used to being in control. The hospital is her life and leaves room for little else. Respected by her colleagues, but misunderstood by the residents, Nora takes what she needs and keeps everyone at arm’s length. In the process, she creates unexpected enemies.
Tragedy brings them together. As chaos grows around them, the lines between them begin to blur. Despite being from different worlds, friendship grows between them, turning quickly to attraction. Will these two strong, independent women find a way to deal with their individual baggage? Or will they be overcome by it?
Feel good story
Kelli is a tough, foul mouthed and impatient cop who has been shot in the line of duty. Her partner has been shot as well and may never walk again, her brother is back on drugs and her mom lives in a permanent state of denial. Nora is a solitary creature. Shes a no-nonsense, by the book, stuffy surgeon. For some reason she has a calming effect on Kelli and Kelli has a way of bringing her out of her sheltered world. When Nora is suspended can Kelli help her from walling herself off completely?
I liked the characters in this story. Kelli is a bad ass who faces life head on. Nora is so sheltered and closed off. She is use to being alone, unable to trust anyone. I felt so badly for her.
The story itself was pretty great. Both women were struggling with their own personal issues but together they balanced each other. When one was angry or upset the other was able to be strong for her. They made an excellent couple. I loved watching Nora come out of her self imposed prison and become a warm and caring woman.
The conflicts in the story were good and handles very well. I am eagerly awaiting Ms. Williamson’s next novel!
