The Doctor's Unexpected Family Reviews

    I have enjoyed reading several of Kristen Ethridge's books and this was no exception. The Doctor's Unexpected Family is both part of the Port Provident: Hurricane Hope series and a stand alone book. It was a great book about hope. The Doctor's Unexpected Family deals with the aftermath of the hurricane and rebuilding lives. Kristen lived through Hurricane Ike and brings her personal observations and perhaps her experiences to this story. Her characters and story are believable. While it is a Christian story, it is not preachy and deals with personal faith. I read this book after Second Chance Sweethearts which is not technically part of this series since it's a Love Inspired book. However, it also is also about Hurricane Hope. I accidentally read it before Port Provident: Hurricane Hope Book 1 Shelter from the Storm but there was nothing I didn't understand or that didn't make sense.

    The premise of the story is all right but this book drags out and I got really tired of the theme of "been hurt by others not going there again" even though it is supposed to be a Christian story of love, forgiveness and starting over.

    GreatA well written book readable for everyone. No sex scenes, but lots of love for both people and animals. I cannot wait until my granddaughter is old enough to understand the lovely life lessons demonstrated in this author's books

    Dr. Pete Shipley is a charismatic and charming physician, but he’s closed his heart to the idea of ever falling in love. Even years after the death of his beloved fiancé, Pete still can’t imagine himself loving another woman again. Meanwhile, City Counselwoman, Angela Ruiz has plenty of issues going on in her life as well. She’s a single mom to adorable Celina, and she’s struggling to help her Port Provident, Texas community rebuild after a devastating and destructive hurricane. Angela is far too busy to even think about romance…until Dr. Shipley comes into her life.To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this book nearly as much as I did. Although I do appreciate an inspirational romance novel every now and then, it’s a difficult genre to pull off without coming across as overly preachy, or even cheesy and sappy. However, Ms. Ethridge has woven a truly lovely and touching tale of hope, faith and love. Her characters are so well-developed and likable, I found myself genuinely caring about how things turned out for them. “The Doctor’s Unexpected Family” is a story that has the ability to speak to the reader’s heart. There are several uplifting and inspiring passages that incorporate sincere faith-based undertones that are really very moving and poignant. The encouraging concept that people often come into your life at the very moment you truly need them is at the heart of this wonderful book. I absolutely loved “The Doctor’s Unexpected Family” and would recommend it highly!

    I love this story and the whole series because it is so much more than a romance story. It is about hope and the rebuilding of lives that were destroyed from a hurricane. While a towns physical building can be destroyed through a natural disaster its spirit cannot be if the right people step up to rebuild. This is the theme that comes through so well in the series and this particular story shows how second chances are possible for everyone.

    I picked this book up from Amazon when I saw the cover. I don't know why, but it really drew me to it. This is a touching story of two people who have weathered the storm, but are still facing a battle. I was really touched by this story. Most of us when we hear about a disaster we will listen to details, but to be honest we truly have no clue what people endure that are actually going through it. This book shows the strength a person can show when placed in a difficult situation. Of course there's a little romance thrown in that will warm your heart. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a very sweet story.

    The Doctor's Unexpected Family by Kristen Ethridge is Book 2 in the Port Provident: Hurricane Hope Series. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.This is my first time reading Ms. Ethridge’s work and I wasn’t disappointed. What a wonderful story of love, faith, hope and second chances that is clean and just tugs at your heart strings. Totally enjoyed this story.Please note that an ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.
