New York Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan returns to the beloved Scottish Highland town of Kirrinfief, which readers first met in The Bookshop on the Shore, and adds a dash of London's bustling urban landscape.

Lissie, is a nurse in a gritty, hectic London neighborhood. Always terribly competent and good at keeping it all together, she's been suffering quietly with PTSD after helping to save the victim of a shocking crime. Her supervisor quietly arranges for Lissie to spend a few months doing a much less demanding job in the little town of Kirrinfeif in Scottish Highlands, hoping that the change of scenery will help her heal. Lissie will be swapping places with Cormack, an Army veteran who's Kirrinfeif's easygoing nurse/paramedic/all-purpose medical man. Lissie's never experienced small-town life, and Cormack's never spent more than a day in a big city, but it seems like a swap that would do them both some good.

In London, the gentle Cormack is a fish out of the water; in Kirrinfief, the dynamic Lissie finds it hard to adjust to the quiet. But these two strangers are now in constant contact, taking over each other's patients, endlessly emailing about anything and everything. Lissie and Cormack discover a new depth of feeling...for their profession and for each other.

But what will happen when Lissie and Cormack finally meet...?

A sweet novel. I really enjoyed this. Lovely narrator. I found it to be a wonderful escape. I've been reading a lot of heavy stuff and this was light and bright and airy. A terrific change and much needed. ( )

I really liked this one. It was just like the other two in the series but the ending felt rushed and left me going "huh"??? Otherwise I blew through it. Was like eating candy. ( )

Cute. But, is mail delivered on Sunday and the post office open until noon on Sunday? ( )

It was a pleasure to come back to Kirrinfeif, the beautiful (albeit fictional) town in the Scottish Highlands where Colgan has set stories in the past, and to reunite with old characters.

In this book, we meet Lissa Westcott, a nurse practitioner liaison (NPL) in London, who suffers from PTSD after witnessing a murder in the streets of a young boy she knew. Her supervisor arranged for her to change places for three months with Cormac MacPherson, also an NPL, who worked 500 miles away, in Kirrinfeif, on the shores of Loch Ness.

At first, each of them had difficulty adjusting to their new environments, so different from what they were used to. They began emailing to exchange case notes, and eventually their correspondence got more personal. But they had never met. Nevertheless, they got to have a lot in common as they met each others patients and friends and go to know each place in which they now lived and worked.

Evaluation: As usual, Jenny Colgan has written a wonderful story with a charming setting, endearing characters, and heartwarming romances. And her stories always seem to involve a love of books. What couldn’t be a winning formula, with all of that? ( )
