Book Review: "The Doctor’s Second Chance," by Missy Tippens (Love Inspired Series)

Recently, I hosted a giveaway for six paperback novels in the Love Inspired series. (Congratulations to the winner, Rose S.!) These books offer wholesome, faith-based entertainment for women that nourishes the soul as it affirms the values of devotion, hope and love.

Love Inspired stories show that faith, forgiveness and hope have the power to lift spirits and change lives -- always. The Love Inspired product line is a series of six books that are released every month. Once the month is over, they’re gone from the shelves!

I was fortunate to receive the six books that were released on May 15th, and I just finished one of them called The Doctor’s Second Chance, by Missy Tippens.

About the book:
Jake West’s troubled cousin leaves him with a most unusual parting gift -- her newborn baby girl! And now the small-town contractor is forced to seek help from the very woman he resents -- the new big-city pediatrician who practically stole his uncle’s practice, Violet Crenshaw. Violet knows she shouldn't be consorting with the enemy. But she can’t resist the adorable baby and her handsome new caretaker. Violet traded her chance at motherhood for her career years ago. But raising a family with Jake could be everything she’s ever wanted.

My thoughts:
I loved the characters in this book. Violet was tough on the outside, but very vulnerable and hurt on the inside as the result of a secret past that she was reluctant to share. Naturally, that interfered with her ability to form lasting relationships, even with the sweet contractor next door. Jake was everything a woman could want in a man: kind and gentle, a good provider, and a softie around babies. He and Violet were attracted to each other from the start, but Jake’s preconceived opinion about Violet and her lack of trust in people made both of them wary about fully investing in the relationship. This story was realistic in that love didn’t magically fix everything or erase the past. Both Violet and Jake had to do plenty of emotional growing before they could be together. This story had substance and heart, and it grabbed my interest to the very end.
