Doctor January by Rhoda Baxter
If you keep looking back, you might miss what’s standing right in front of you …
Beth works in a lab with two guys Hibs and Vic, she is currently studying for her PhD. Her life is her work and studies, something she has thrown herself into following her boyfriend Gordon walking out on her 6 months ago. So why on the night of her birthday celebrations, has he chose to return?
Beth is a great character and it’s horrible to see the emotions she goes through following the return of Gordon.
I found her so easy to relate to, her confidence issues, her focus in life, all of this makes Beth wonderful to read about.
It is a shame that Beth doesn’t see how wonderful she is, but that’s where Hibs comes in.
Hibs is incredible, it’s obvious how he feels for Beth and the way he builds her up after Gordon knocks her down is great.
I have a bit of a crush on Hibs, he is just lovely. There were only two characters in this book that I didn’t like.
The first being, Beth’s supervisor Roger, he is a bully who seems to think he can speak to Beth however he likes.
The second is Gordon, a nasty manipulative person, who will stop at nothing to get his own way. Personally, I think he needs a good slap.
Rhoda Baxter has delivered a fantastic read that you will want to devour in one sitting, Doctor January!
