Infection: An Essential Post-Apocalyptic Survival Novel (Sympatico Syndrome Book 1) by M.P. McDonald

What started as a “flu” outbreak on a military base proves deadlier than Ebola and more contagious than the Spanish Flu. Sympatico Syndrome is unlike anything the world has ever seen. Victims’ behavior is changing to accommodate the rapid spread of the virus.
Former Navy epidemiologist Cole Evans is well aware of the rare, infectious diseases the military studies. He also knows, first-hand, the government’s stance on sharing information with the public, so if the media has already learned about the disease, then it’s far too late to contain the outbreak.
Cole’s only chance to save his family is to establish a safe haven. Isolated, hard to reach, and with enough space for his brother’s family as well, he has the perfect location–if only they can all reach it before they’re infected…

Blue Hydrangeas: an Alzheimer’s love story by Marianne Sciucco

What if the person who knew you best and loved you most forgot your face, and couldn’t remember your name? A care facility is everyone’s solution for what to do about Sara, but her husband, Jack, can’t bear to live without her. He is committed to saving his marriage, his wife, and their life together from the devastation of Alzheimer’s disease. He and Sara retired years ago to the house of their dreams, and operated it as a Cape Cod bed and breakfast named Blue Hydrangeas. Jack has made an impossible promise: He and Sara will stay together in their beautiful home no matter what the disease brings. However, after nine years of selfless caregiving, complicated by her progressing Alzheimer’s and his own failing heart, he finally admits he can no longer care for her at home. With reluctance, he arranges to admit her to an assisted living facility. But, on the day of admission, Sara is having one of her few good days, and he is unable to follow through. Instead, he takes them on an impulsive journey to confront their past and reclaim their future. In the end, he realizes that staying together at any cost is what truly matters.

Broken Heart Syndrome by Susie Tate

Some extracts from UK reviews:
‘Delicious escapism’
‘totally gripping’
‘I laughed and cried my way through the book’
‘well-paced fun read’
‘Hilarious and addictive’
‘Totally lush’
‘The characters are powerful and convincing and the plot enthralling’
‘couldn’t put it down’

Shy, reclusive Frankie and her best friend Lou obsess over Thomas G. Longley, as they reverently refer to him, for their entire first two years of medical school. So when he publicly humiliates her at the student bar she is devastated.

Ten years later, Frankie has to work in the testosterone driven environment of Cardiology before she can start her palliative care training and, to her dismay, Tom is her boss.

Thankfully the subject of her long-term crush doesn’t seem to remember her and, given her ability to blend into the background, she’s not really surprised. What does surprise her is how cruel he is. Sure he squished her self esteem like a bug at Uni, but the Tom she spent many a pointless lunch break covertly watching seemed easy going and quick to smile; not an uptight, overly critical bully.

Between passing out in theatre and being covered head to foot in the bloody vomit of ‘Scary Glenda’ (A&E’s most frequent, frequent flyer), she can’t wait to get through the six months.

Although she’s too timid to tell Tom to jog on when she is his only target, when it’s her patients that he starts trampling she decides to grow a backbone, and Tom begins to see that she is not the cold, aloof woman he once thought.

As the misunderstandings of the past come to light, Tom realizes that the ‘complete-bastard’ routine he has been clinging to out of hurt pride might not have been his most stellar idea. He has a fight on his hands to win Frankie over and, unfortunately, it’s not just his past behaviour he’s fighting against. You see, Frankie knows all about being pushed around. She’s dealt with enough verbal and even physical abuse before to last a lifetime and she’s not going to be fooled into thinking that this ruthless alpha male has turned over a new leaf.

Even if he could convince her that he’s not really the bully he projected before, her low self-esteem would never allow her to believe that a man like Tom could really be into a boring, bland, nondescript girl like her.

Luckily for Frankie, Tom is used to getting what he wants. He’s determined to make her see herself clearly for the first time in her life and he’s just arrogant enough to believe that he can break through her defenses.

But Frankie’s past is not ready to let her go quite yet. There’s a reason that she spends next to no money but is always skint: a reason that she keeps her flat door open: a reason that she holds herself back from him. Maybe he won’t manage to convince her and he’ll allow her to push him away. Or maybe (as Lou rightly puts it) he should ‘stop being a pussy and man up already.’

Author Background
I’m a general practitioner now, but I’ve also spent years as a hospital doctor. Having worked with and treated some real characters in my time and been involved in some pretty bizarre and often hilarious situations, I wanted to use my experience to write what I hope is a funny, at times heartbreaking story, with a real insight into what goes on behind the scenes in medicine.

I’m a sucker for a bossy alpha male hero, and apologies to my cardiology mates but, out of all the specialties I worked in, yours’ was the most arrogant (surpassing even the orthopedic surgeons – gulp!). This book is a work of fiction, but I promise that you really can cut the testosterone in some cardiology departments with a knife, and I thought it would be a fun place to set a romantic comedy / medical romance.

Warning – this is a romantic comedy / adult contemporary romance and whilst being only slightly steamy, it does have some swearing in it. I would love to say that being foul-mouthed is completely out of character for me but…

A Heart of Time by Shari J. Ryan and Lisa Brown

“Time of death…” the doctor said.I won’t forget that moment I looked over at Ellie—the paleness of her once rosy cheeks, the blue hue coating her perfect lips—the woman I had been with since we were five years old. My wife. My best friend…and the mother to our newborn baby girl.You promised me we would be together forever, I wanted to tell her. She gave me her forever, I told myself. Her forever just ended at twenty-five.“You need to say your goodbyes…” the doctor said.How do I say goodbye to the one person in my life I could never say goodbye to?My body is numb, and my heart hurts. Hurts like someone just ripped it out of my chest. Which is ironic…“We are going to remove her heart now, Hunter. It was her wish to donate,” the doctor said.She never told me this.She never told me another woman would carry on with her beating heart. She never told me this woman knew me but wouldn’t let me know her.She never told me if I should follow her heart, or if I should follow mine.She knew. She could have told me…
