Could Be Something Good by Fiona West
Winnie knows babies, and the intern who just hit on her by the hospital elevators definitely qualifies.
Winnie’s starting to think she has a target on her back: her mom is pestering her to sign up for the MCAT’s again, even though she’s already a midwife. Her bothersome ex is at it, too, blowing up her phone with texts and calls, asking her to attend the wedding of a mutual acquaintance when he knows she wants nothing to do with him. And to top it all off, the cute new resident at the hospital–who’s way too young for her–seems to think they should be friends. How’s a midwife supposed to catch babies with all this drama?
Daniel wants three things: a long bike ride, a good comic book, and a date with Winnie. When the beautiful blond midwife gives him the brush-off, he’s only mildly concerned; dyslexia has taught him to be patient. He’s willing to wait until she sees how good they could be together…and being her date to that wedding she’s dreading is the perfect opportunity to show her. But when his boss (who happens to be Winnie’s mother) makes a public pronouncement about how wrong they are for each other, things get serious more quickly than laid-back Daniel had in mind.
With all of Timber Falls taking sides, can their fledgling relationship withstand the pressure, or will they prove her mother right after all?
