All Abby Cahill wanted was a quiet summer job in the beautiful Wisconsin woods. But the hospital where she's filling in turns out to be overcrowded, understaffed and decidedly stretched for cash. And as if she didn't have enough on her hands, the only vacancy in town for a "single woman with mutt" is at the farmhouse of wildlife biologist Ethan Matthews, who son is with him for the season, along with several newborn puppies.
Ethan is a handsome, solitary man who seems to need Abby as much as she needs...Problem is she'll never find out what she needs. At the end of August she's got to go back to her job in the city teaching nursing.
And leave this temporary arrangement, which is starting to feel too darn comfortable. For all three of them.
Blackberry Hill Memorial...A hospital at the heart of town.
After Abby Cahill takes a temporary position as director of nursing at a small-town hospital, she's left without a place to live when the apartment she rented burns to the ground. Luckily, she finds help in the form of wildlife biologist and part-time fishing guide Ethan Matthews, who offers Abby a place to stay in return for helping him out while he recovers from an injury. But things get a little complicated when Ethan's animals start mysteriously escaping, and Abby is framed for a theft after a fundraiser. A Temporary Arrangement (4), by Roxanne Rustand, is an entertaining read. The characters are well developed, and the dialogue is good. The book offers a fascinating peek into the return of wolves to their native habitats.
