That Certain Spark by Cathy Marie Hake is the fourth book in the Only in Gooding! series. Twin siblings, Enoch and Taylor Bestman, come to Gooding, Texas to take on the roles of veterinarian and doctor, respectively. Unfortunately, the townsfolk missed the note in her recommendation that Taylor is a woman and they aren't ready for a lady doctor in 1892.
I liked this book by Cathy Marie Hake but I didn't love it. I thought that the romance between the two main characters, Taylor and Karl, was very well done. The banter between Enoch and Taylor was particularly fun.
But I really didn't like the secondary romance between Taylor's twin brother, Enoch, and Mercy. I never really understood why Mercy fell in love with Enoch. He just basically decided two seconds after meeting her that he was going to marry her. His feelings for Mercy and her daughter did not seem real at all.
The characters are not very well developed and the ending felt just a bit rushed. I don’t think this fourth book in the series was as good as the first three.

This is the 4th book in the Only in Gooding series. I have really enjoyed this series of books. I like how all of the characters are in almost all of the books. This book was about the new lady doctor in town. The book did bog down a little bit for me during some of the long conversations between Taylor and Karl but I still enjoyed it immensely.
