Summary: Since the death of his wife, Frank Brannigan has focused on raising his two daughters and furthering his medical practice, but he’s lonely. Maybe it’s time to get married again, but how?
Marry the Doctor is book two in the Love and Chocolate Series. Each book is a stand-alone sweet romance without cliff hangers.
Cover Review: Okay, this cover may be kinda cute, but it’s super misleading. The characters portrayed on the cover actually like 40ish. Not 18. So the pic is just kinda awkward, tbh.
My Review: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Every time I read a Beverly Farr book, it hits me how much I love her writing. I always forget just how beautiful it is. Every time I open one of her books, I get re-immersed not just in her worlds and her characters, but her masterful writing. It pulls me in immediately.
I thought the premise of this one was very intriguing and refreshingly different. The characters were middle-aged, quirky, and realistic. Frank was dealing with the passing of his wife, being the single parent of two daughters, and when he finally ventures back into the dating world, he deals with countless people who are just after his fortune, and don’t actually care about him.
As I read the book, I became quickly invested in the characters and their lives. In addition to the stars of this book, there were some cameo appearances from the main characters of the first book, and the main character of the third book was introduced. It adds to the realism of the world, and Beverly weaves all of these storylines together effortlessly.
I highly recommend this book! I read it in one sitting — it was impossible to put down. I loved Marry The Doctor! It was the perfect way to spend a relaxing summer day.
Content Advisory: It’s a sweet romance novel. The author puts it this way:
“Very little swearing. There may be an occasional hell or damn, maybe even a b*tch, but there will be no Lord’s name in vain and no f-bombs. No explicit sex scenes. Characters might discuss sex, but any love scenes are off screen (Think AFRICAN QUEEN).”
To Sum It Up: Another fantastic novel from Beverly Farr! Looking for a light, fun, sweet romance? The best part is, though this is technically part of a series, it IS a standalone novel in it’s own right. I highly recommend the first book, but you don’t have to read it first! You’ll love this one, too. :)
I would recommend this book to anyone over 16+.
