Delaney Blair loves her job at Echo Lake’s Mercy Hospital, where she’s developed a reputation for being smart, fair, and driven. When she’s assigned to cut funding, she has to temporarily relocate her office, put on borrowed scrubs, and go toe-to-toe with Dr. Joshua Mackenzie, the interim head of the pediatrics department. His killer smile and rock-star body are distractions Delaney could do without, but she’s determined to stay focused while she brings his budget into line. It’s not working.
Beloved by his colleagues and patients alike, Josh is too busy caring for sick kids to talk numbers with the sexy, stiletto-clad Delaney. Every time they talk business, tensions run high…but so does a powerful attraction neither of them can ignore. When an emergency brings Mercy to its knees, Delaney and Josh must work together to save lives. But can they also find a way into each other’s hearts?
My Rating: 5 stars
Heart Like Mine by Maggie McGinnis is an outstanding novel. I was impressed with the plot and its amazing characters. Hospitals are scary enough without a budget cut to stress over. That’s exactly where readers will find the incredible heart melting people like Delaney Blair and Dr. Joshua MacKenzie. Two good people fighting to save the pediatrics department and the innocent lives that need their help.
Maggie McGinnis has beautifully woven together a realistic threat to small-town hospitals like Mercy. Inside, readers will get a first hand experience in what it’s like to cut budgets in places that you don’t want to cut from as well as trying to save your own butt from being dismissed. Then there’s the instant attraction that happens between a pediatrics doctor and the woman in charge of handling the budget maintenance. Heart Like Mine is definitely a sweet and inspirational romance that will tug at every reader’s heart. Overall, I highly recommend this well-written contemporary romance to readers everywhere.
