The Surgeon’s Secret Baby by Anne Christopher

The Surgeon’s Secret Baby is the second book in a four part miniseries centered in the Hopewell General hospital. Although, this book is part of a miniseries, it is excellent enough to stand on its own. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Christopher’s story about Lia, who has hacked the hospital’s computer to determine the identity of her son’s sperm donor and Thomas, an eminently acclaimed surgeon.

Lia was widowed before the birth of her son and is doing everything in her power to help her son find a kidney transplant. She finds out that Thomas is her son’s father and immediately appeals to him to get tested to see if he can be a donor for her child. Thomas decided long ago not to father a child and only donated sperm as a college student. But once he meets his little mini-me, Thomas wants to play a significant role in his son’s life. At the same time, he is very attracted to his son’s mother and the sparks fly between them from the first time that they meet. Their interaction just had me melting all the way through this book. I must confess that I have read this book several times so that I could just enjoy taking part in coming together of a beautiful family.

This book shows the growth of all the family members including Thomas’s father who has issues of his own and brings several plot turning events to the story. This was an integration of different characters and perspectives and I look forward to discovering more of Ms. Christopher’s work. I highly recommend this book as a heart-warming feel good story.

Against the Storm by Kat Martin

I must say that Ms. Kat Martin has given us an extremely entertaining suspense romance. This book is the first sequel to her equally enjoyable Raines’ Brother trilogy. Trace Rawlings, ex-ranger and now Private Investigator, meets Maggie O’Connell while working on a case as a bodyguard. Maggie, a successful photographer, was taking pictures of the events and Trace knocked out the bad guy, confiscated her camera, and erased the pictures. Someone is stalking Maggie and based on the way Trace handling this case, her friend encourages Maggie to solicit Trace’s help in identifying and stopping her stalker.

Maggie shows the harassing and alarming notes to Trace and he accepts her case.  Maggie has not been very forthcoming about her past to Trace and this compounds the problems in getting police help to stop the stalker. From this point, the rollercoaster adventure is on. There are so many twists and turns in this book that you be on the edge of your seat until the very last page. The chemistry between Maggie and Trace is palpable and it is nicely interwoven in their resolution to stop Maggie’s stalker. Both Maggie and Trace has to work through their past baggage and trust issues so that they can stop the stalker and accept that they are meant to be together.

When you pick up this book to read, make sure that you have allocated plenty of time to enjoy this excellently written story. Ms. Martin has a winner with her “Against” series and I for one can’t wait for the next installment.
