At All Costs by Micheala Lynn

A very interesting concept, let down by the quality of the writing. We have an ER doctor who meets a wheelchair-bound woman who works in a bookshop. Their initial encounter does not go well, but then they get to know each other and lurve flourishes.

In the mix, our doctor has attachment issues, and our paraplegic heroine has independence issues. These all seemed authentic enough, as did grappling with a physical relationship as, and with, a disabled woman. Then there’s a traumatic, life-threatening accident to contend with, and guilt, and families, etc.

All interesting stuff, but difficult to identify with, or believe, because the dialogue and writing gets in the way of believing in the relationship. It’s a little bit like a decent synopsis of the book got written, and it just needed another draft or two before hitting ‘publish’.
