Sydney Harbour Hospital: Tom's Redemption
Sydney Harbour Hospital: Tom's Redemption by Fiona Lowe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Hayley Grey is a Resident at Sydney Harbour Hospital, she is one exam away from being a qualified Surgeon. She is scared of the dark but other than that a good kick ass female main character. Tom Jordon, a Surgeon, has returned to Sydney from Perth where he had been recuperating for two years following an accident; a car banged into him when he was cycling.
We learn that Tom is gorgeous, a serious person whose focus has been 100% on his carear which is now not an option for him. So he is at the stage in his life where he is looking for what he wants to do now.
Enter Hayley into his life. They develop a friendship which grows to more...
This book is a fast read. I didn't really feel involved in the story which I think was mainly due to the length of the book not giving the author or reader time to really engaged in the story. Likewise, these two fairly interesting characters didn't get room to grow. Their bumps in their relationship seemed to be solved before you got a chance to fret for them.
The medical referencing was just enough to convince me they knew what they were doing without flowing the pages with terminology.
I enjoyed the book but it was just ok.
