I hold Nicki Edwards responsible for my late nights last week I really enjoyed Intensive Care While I haven't been to rural NSW since I was a kid the descriptions of the scenery were stunning I'm from Melbourne The characters were likable and complex Kate bugged me a bit at the start refusing to speak to Marcus but as I got to know her it made a lot senseI'm looking forward to reading books by Nicki Edwards

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 spont. Crushed when she discovers her live in boyfriend of three years has been having an affair ICU nurse Kate Kennedy packs up her belongings and desperate to move on impulsively accepts a position at a hospital in the small country town of Birrangulla five hours west of Sydney Everything seems to be falling into place she's found the perfect job the perfect home and in search of the the perfect cup of coffee may just have found the perfect man but Intensive Care is a contemporary rural medical romance in which the author Nicki Edwards draws on her love of country Australia and her personal nursing experienceI found Kate to be a bit of a passive aggressive character There is a lot of emphasis on her dislike of confrontation but I thought she was often over sensitive snappish and impatient I understood her avoidance of her cheating boyfriend Marcus especially as details about their relationship were revealed and sympathised with her feelings of hurt and betrayal And while I admired Kate's professional compassion for her patients her reaction to Joel's sister's concerns bothered me she didn't demonstrate a lot of understanding for the younger woman's fearsTaking place over the period of about a year the romance between Kate and Joel develops slowly Though they both have good reasons to be wary of beginning a new relationship I found their chemistry a bit lacking Joel in particularly seems disinterested much of the time while Kate tries to force the issue which was slightly discomfitingJoel with his Irish accent coffee making genius and handyman skills is an appealing hero made so by his tragic past Though perhaps a little passive for my taste I found him sweet and charmingA blend of medical drama and rural romance Intensive Care is a pleasant novel which should appeal to fans of both genres

Intensive Care Escape to the Country #1O anything Yet their chemistry is hard to deny and after a near fatal incident Joel and Kate find themselves opening up to one anotherJust 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 futur. 35 stars If you love to curl up with a good old MBHN medical romance then you should love this book It’s a lot longer than those books but that just gives the story time to develop This is a classic tale of a city girl moving to the country after her almost perfect life falls apart – with added medical dramaI liked Kate True I thought her stubborn insistence in not talking to Marcus was a bit over the top but it’s clear from what little we learn of their relationship that he’s always had a strong influence over her and that she lost a lot of faith in herself during their time together However as the story progresses it’s clear there’s nothing weak or hesitant about her If there was she could never have made such a move or stuck it out when things weren’t easy with her work colleaguesThen again with Joel around she certainly had some good motivation for sticking in place What a sweetheart Joel is – kind caring always willing to help Actually he’s a little too perfect and a touch passive at times I loved all the thoughtful things he did for Kate but he does have issues of his own to work through that cause than a few bumps on the road to loveAs lovely as I found Joel and as much as I liked Kate the two most emotional parts of this book came from patients in the hospital There were two that really got me Away from the hospital things are muted – not in a bad way because offers a pleasant contrast but there was a lack of intensity and chemistry between Joel and Kate that made it easier to believe they were just friends Taking place over a year the pace is measured and steady and there’s no grand romance here Instead this is a story about Kate finding her feet again in a new place in both love life and work It has some emotional moments and a pleasant sweetness set against the backdrop of a small Australian community A nice easy read I look forward to from this author I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
