Doctor’s Orders

By Paula Roberts

Is love really the best medicine?

After the death of her beloved husband, Jim, Shirley Foster was devastated. But with her baby son, Simon to bring up, Shirley had to put her grief away for his sake. Now Simon is starting school, and with her heart slowly healing, Shirley decides to return to her career as a nurse nearly seven years later.

While a lot has changed in seven years, there are many familiar faces: her old friend, Jenny, and Dr. Gerry Bland – who, it seems, still holds a candle for Shirley. And of course, there’s Mavis. Once a determined (if not very bright) nurse, Mavis is now a Sister and it seems she still holds a grudge on Shirley.

But one new face is one Doctor Ken Merill, a handsome yet distant man that Mavis is keen on. Shirley is determined to stay away for fear of Mavis’ wrath but fate has other ideas…

Set in a small English town, Doctor’s Orders is a sweet, charming tale of romance and hope, showing that love can indeed strike twice. Perfect for fans of Miranda Barnes and Anne Piper, Paula Roberts is sure to delight.

A former nurse, Paula Roberts used her extensive experience in hospitals in her medical romance novels. During her life, she penned several successful books including Part-Time Nurse, Case Nurse and Love in Ward Two.
