We can’t let April go by without featuring Jennifer Taylor’s last book, ‘Reunited by their Baby’, which is published this month. So we’ve asked reader and reviewer, Helen Sibbritt – who needs no introduction to readers of this blog – to review the book for us. Thank you Helen!
Reunited by Their Baby (The Larches Practice), by Jennifer Taylor
Review by Helen Sibbritt
I love the medical line from Harlequin, they are heart-warming, moving and emotional stories with a sensual pull and heroes and heroines that are rich in character and very easy to love, and this one ticks all of those boxes. I practically inhaled this one, a second chance romance that left me feeling very happy as I am sure it will anyone who reads it and I do recommend that you read it. I loved the setting a small town in The Dales filled with fabulous characters that all add to the story.
Beth Andrews is a GP at the Larches Practice she has a beautiful daughter Beatrix and she is single and quite content with her life, that is until her ex-husband arrives on the scene. Callum O’Neill, is yet to meet his daughter and that is why he is here. Beth has never gotten over the way Callum left, she thought they were very happy, they were trying to have a baby and things weren’t working out and he left. When Beth realized she was pregnant she wrote a letter but he never acknowledged it, Beatrix is ten months old now and a lot of things have changed, but has she stopped loving him?
Callum is a doctor, he grew up without love from his parents and when old enough travelled, he has done a lot of work with aid agencies in Africa and that had taken his time that is until he met Beth and fell head over heels in love with her. They married settled into working together at The Larches and Beth wanted a baby, Callum was a bit unsure about that but was happy with the idea, that is until they weren’t succeeding and he felt Beth needed to let go and he left and divorced her. A year later he finally received the letter she sent and rushed back to meet his daughter and to try and win back the love of his life.
This really is such a beautiful story, trying so hard to have a baby pushed them apart and now gorgeous little Beatrix will pull them together. Neither had ever stopped loving each other, there was a lot of misunderstanding and thinking they were doing the right thing instead of talking but now Beth is so untrusting of Callum and he has a lot of convincing to show her his true love, they are so good together. I loved this story, there are so many emotions happening. Ms Taylor has written a keeper, one that I highly recommend.
I am very saddened that Ms Taylor has passed away and this is her last book and a fabulous story it is. Her stories will always be there to read and re-read she has left a lot of happiness in this world.
