FINDING HER FOREVER FAMILY by Traci Douglass is a Harlequin contemporary medical romance set in the same Alaskan hospital as this author's previous medical romance, One Night with the Army Doc. This is an extremely emotional romance with an O.B. doctor, single dad and an E.R. trauma nurse with the unresolved fear of a hereditary disease hanging over her head.
Wendy Smith is an exceptional trauma nurse in the E.R. Even though she faces other people's traumas every day, she is still unwilling to face the results of her test for the hereditary Huntington's mutation. She watched her vibrant mother die at a young age and refuses to risk passing the disease on so she has built a wall around her heart and never becomes involved in relationships for more than one night stands.
Dr. Tom Faber is the O.B. doctor on call when Wendy's sister-in-law delivers her twins. Besides long hours at the hospital, Tom has recently received custody of his twelve-year-old daughter after the death of his ex-wife. They are both struggling to connect. When he finds out Wendy has been helping with his daughter's counseling and has a connection with her, he asks for her help without violating their privacy. Wendy agrees to help, knowing how hard it is to lose a parent at that age.
Wendy and Tom are instantly attracted to each other and each have reasons to take it slower, but they just cannot stay away from each other. Wendy wants to help this perfectionist doctor learn to accept that not everything can be planned and perfect, especially in his relationship with his daughter. Tom wants to help Wendy face her fear of her test results and have a real relationship with her. Will they be able to move forward past their individual fears and come together as a family?
I found Wendy and Tom's romance well written, but too short. I feel the issues they were both dealing with deserved a more in-depth story. This author did a very good job though of taking several heavy issues and fitting them into this shorter format. The sex scenes are explicit, but short and not gratuitous. This is an easy-to-read, heartwarming story with interesting characters that keeps you emotionally involved throughout.
