Blurb: Dr. Jeff Martin has spent five years as a rural general practitioner on the Isle of Wight, hiding the fact he’s gay. He travels in secret to see his partner, Tris, but when he discovers Tris has been cheating on him, he ends their relationship. Then Jeff meets island native Cameron Gillard. Cameron is down-to-earth, lively, and treats Jeff like he’s the most important person in his life. Jeff blooms under Cameron’s attention, and he decides to come out to his colleagues and friends.
Just when things are going well, Tris reappears out of the blue. Jeff is no longer interested in Tris, but it seems he has two men to convince. Tris, who can’t believe Jeff is serious about wanting to end their relationship, and Cameron, who can’t hide his jealousy of Tris.
Jeff is certain about one thing—the only man he wants in his life is Cameron. Now he just needs to prove it to him.
Review: Island Doctor is a cozy story that shows two very different men falling in love. Jeff is currently in a relationship, and inevitably goes through a breakup with Tris. Jeff responds to one of his patient’s grandsons, Cameron, in a wonderful and naughty way, and we watch as they fall in love and interact in with the third main character of this book, the Isle of Wight.
As usual, Sue Brown creates loveable but flawed characters and an amazing supporting cast, especially Cameron’s Gran, she is fabulous! I always look forward to going to the Isle of Wight in this series and cannot wait to visit again.
Narration: This was my first book narrated by Adam Rivington. He has a lovely accent that complemented the characters nicely. Sometimes that combination is enough, and I really did enjoy this audio; however, I did have a hard time differentiating the characters as they conversed and had to rewind a couple of times to figure it out.
