A Doctor For Keeps Review




A Doctor for Keeps

By Lynne Marshall 

Her lifelong search for home…  
Desdemona Rask never knew much about her family. Now she is finally getting a chance to learn about her roots in the town of Heartlandia. For the first time, Desi feels as if there's somewhere she belongs…but there's more to her welcome home than she expected! Her grandmother's next-door neighbor looks like a Viking warrior, and he's giving Desi all sorts of unwelcome feelings…. 
…might be closer than she thinks! 
Caring for his son, Steven, is single dad Dr. Kent Larson's first priority. But the boy's stunning new piano teacher makes him take a second look at his to-do list. Still, he's lost at love before—how could he risk another heart-battering? Does the doctor dare to go all in? 
...........................................................................
***MY HONEST REVIEW OF A DOCTOR FOR KEEPS***

After Desi’s mother dies, she goes in search of her family roots. She remembers meeting her mother’s mother when she was young, and more recently at her mother’s funeral, but has never met her father. When she arrives at her grandmother’s home, she gets more than she bargained for with Kent, the sexy hunk of a doctor next door. As she connects and grows closer to her grandmother, she finds herself falling in love with Kent. But will she ruin her chances with him while searching for her father?

I liked the way the author displayed the raw feelings of both Desi and Kent. You could feel all the emotions bubbling at the surface. It was hard to take sides when she wanted to stay in Portland to meet her father, and Kent practically begging her to come back with him. I don’t know if I could have chosen which way to go. I really liked the town of Heartlandia and the way it was depicted. Grandma Gerda fit there perfectly.

Renaissance of the Heart Giveaway



After her husband of fifteen years comes out of the closet, a blindsided, forty-year-old Amanda Lewis is forced to salvage what remains of her shattered heart and navigate a new life for herself and her teenage daughter. But will a sizzling secret romance with a famous young NFL quarterback lead her to winning the life she deserves or set her up for her biggest loss yet?


As she embarks on the journey of rebuilding her home, Amanda discovers that finding forgiveness and repairing her damaged self-worth are her biggest challenges of all. While searching her soul–and even searching inside her city's history–she finds answers. But will answers come too late and can a broken heart ever be truly fixed?

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF RENAISSANCE***

After 15 years of marriage, Amanda’s husband Derrick asks for a divorce and moves out. Amanda figures the only explanation is another woman. When he calls a week later to meet, she is told, to her horror, that it is not another woman, but another man. Derrick is finally being true to himself. Since they have a daughter to think about, Amanda tries to make it an amiable separation while waiting on the divorce to finalize. But Derrick just won’t let up on the verbal abuse that Amanda has withstood for so long. Then as fate would have it, into her life walks famous NFL quarterback Bradley Erickson, who is very much interested in her. Will Amanda be able to get past the twelve-year age difference and her low self-esteem to find true happiness?  Only time will tell.


Amanda was such an over-analyzer, but she couldn’t help but be, with all the years of put-downs from her husband. It’s very difficult to come away from that unscathed. Being older than her, I can very much understand the insecurities she felt with her body and public judgments. I have to say though, if I was Amanda I would have shut out the voices in my head, thrown caution to the wind, and enjoyed the relationship with Eric with no regrets. I mean, how much better can it get?
