About The Doctor and the Midwife

the doctor and the midwife

As a midwife running her own home birth practice, Audrey Novak deals with pressure like a superhuman. Until, that is, she meets her handsome and arrogant neighbor, Dr. Ammon Parker. Ammon, who believes only in modern medicine, is just as unprepared for the infuriating—and inconveniently beautiful—midwife. When the two are repeatedly called to the same labor and delivery unit, their clashing ideals and fiercely independent personalities threaten to derail both their professional goals and their pride.

Outside of work, Audrey is a passionate rock climber, tantalized by a secret route she’s heard about in an online forum. Her hunt for the climb’s location leads her to the intriguing BelayingonofHands, a man who claims to have set the route. Soon their anonymous virtual flirtation and witty exchanges deepen into a true connection. But when Audrey discovers the man from online is actually Ammon, she’s blindsided. It seems they have more in common than she could have imagined, but will their differences keep them from making the climb to true love together?

My review

I have heard so many great things about this book. And they’re all true! I loved every bit of this story. And I really hope the author writes more like this!

This one’s main female lead is Audrey. She’s a midwife. She works hard. Audrey is a little bit haunted by the death of a friend. I loved the way the reader hid her reasons for this for most of the book. It made her a mystery to the readers, at least a little bit more.Audrey is trying to find a certain place to climb. That’s when she meets a man online, Belayingofhands. And they begin a correspondence. Think modern day You’ve Got Mail type story. I loved this!

But….there’s also Ammon. I loved the way Audrey and Ammon did not get along through a good chunk of the story. Ammon is a likable character, but he definitely had some prejudices towards midwives that he needed to get over. I loved watching these two grow closer and get over any hard feelings they had for the other.

This book was just what I needed after having all of the pandemic stuff and some of the heavier books I’ve been reading lately. It’s light, and just plain fun. I read it so fast, because I didn’t want to put it down!

I was sent a copy of The Doctor and the Midwife as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
