Review by Nas:
ONE MONTH TO BECOME A MUM by debut author Louisa George is a March 2012 release by Mills & Boon Medical series.
After a car accident Jessie Price has a badly scarred abdomen. The accident did not just scar her but took her unborn baby as well as her ability to have more babies. Then it also resulted in the demise of her marriage. She put all her maternal yearnings aside and went to work, bringing medical help to the poor people of the world.
After a stint in Vietnam she came back to Auckland to help out at her brother’s practice while he is out before moving on. There she meets her brother’s partner, gorgeous single dad Dr Luke McKenzie, who though grumpy turns out to be a kind man. When Luke and Jessie meet sparks flew, but he was once left holding a small baby by a woman who wanted to find herself. Can he trust another woman who has wanderlust in her veins? After all she’s only filling in as a temporary locum and would be moving on.
And can Jessie open her heart to love and bare her soul and badly scarred body yet again to be rejected?
ONE MONTH TO BECOME A MUM is a romance packed with sizzle and sexual tension amid the medical drama, adding to the page turning quality of the book. Louisa George’s debut release is rich with emotion and humor, and all of the characters are exquisitely rendered. Her characters are amazing in their complexities, their interaction and their growing love for each other.
