The sixth title in this year’s R*BY Review Challenge is Dr Perfect on Her Doorstep by Lucy Clark. Originally released in September 2014, this is brought to you by Harlequin Medical Romance.
OK, now what did I think of Dr Perfect on Her Doorstep?
Love is often found where, and when, you least expect to come across it. Stacey and Pierce, the couple at the heart of Lucy Clark’s Dr Perfect on Her Doorstep, sure aren’t looking for love, but from the moment we meet them in the yard of her childhood home, romance is most definitely on the cards.
It’s always lovely to see two people, previously unlucky in love, find their luck. Stacey and Pierce’s connection develops slowly, and is definitely on the sweeter side, but nevertheless, you can see a really lovely chemistry building between them. They make a great team, and not just in the workplace! There isn’t a truly black moment in this story, and you know what, that’s more than OK in this case. Their romance is tested, of course, and the way in which it comes to a resolution was very sweet and rather funny.
Stacey and Pierce have both known responsibility beyond what they had expected – having taken on the care of siblings. What I liked about how they were written was that despite having to put aside certain things in their lives, neither blamed the kids for this. No “woe is me, you ruined my life” stuff here. The children are an integral part of the story, and blessedly, they are written as actual children – not as overly perfect robot kids. I loved the way in which Nell (Pierce’s sister) was written – her condition never being made light of or lessened for effect.
I am very keen to see how the other Wilton girls fare in love – time to track down their tales, I think.
Dr Perfect on Her Doorstep is nominated in the Short Sweet category at the R*BYs, and I wish you, Lucy, the very best of luck!
