Intensive Care by Nicki Edwards

My Review

intensive-careEscaping to the country was meant to be easy …

Superficially it looks like busy intensive care nurse, Kate Kennedy has it all: a long-term relationship, a career she adores and an elegant inner city apartment that many would envy her for. But appearances can be deceiving. 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?

I’ll just bet you have so many questions, but there will be no answers until you read this fabulous book.

Nicki Edwards captures the whole rural romance genre in her own unique way. The visionary within this story is just awesome. I picture myself right there, in the moment; with the rolling hills, mountains covered in snow and the general serenity of the countryside. The romantic theme was exquisitely expressed, provoking one’s emotions. A good clean read, suitable for all ages.

About Just Jo'Anne

Josephine-Anne, also fondly known as Jo'Anne, just turned sixty years old, an age she's decided to be for the remainder of her life. Jo'Anne has had a life-long passion for reading and writing. Most of her working life was spent in the administration and finance field; however, once an early retirement became necessary, the next step was logical. So, after much soul-searching, Jo'Anne decided to spend the remainder of her days doing what she loves. She's currently working on a fictional memoir "Charlie Dreams" and has also tried her hand at short stories, poetry, and narrative non-fiction. Jo'Anne has had a poem published in the "Glimpses of Light Anthology, called "God's Woollen Blanket". Jo'Anne loves to read all kinds of fiction, especially crime/ thriller and suspense, contemporary and historical romance. When she's not writing you will find her either inside a good book, with a cup of tea in hand, or pottering around the garden daydreaming and plotting.
