I really enjoyed Lola Keeley’s second book Major Surgery. This is a medical drama/romance that will keep your interest all the way through the book. The story revolves around two characters; St. Sophia Hospital’s surgical department head Veronica Mallick and the new head of the Trauma Department, ex-army surgeon Cassie Taylor. The two meet under less than friendly terms, but as the tale unfolds they slowly become friends and then more. There is drama in the story, both medical as well as personal. There is some angst and a fairly slow romance. I enjoyed the pace of the story as well as the romance.
The only real problem I had with the book was something I don’t think the author could have helped since it involved the medical system in the UK. I didn’t understand the way the hospital system worked there, especially the way they divided up the departments. I also didn’t recognize some of the titles given to the staff, since many of those titles in the story were abbreviations that I didn’t know. I finally just started ignoring those things and hoped it wouldn’t cause me problems understanding the story. Thankfully, it didn’t and I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
Ms. Keeley has proven with this, her second novel, that she is an excellent author. I can recommend this book to all who love a good medical romance. I look forward to reading more of her writing in the future.
