There is nothing like a heart attack to cure desire, well at least temporarily.

Felicity Mitchell is a small town nurse who is on the trip of a lifetime. She has spent her inheritance on a first class train trip on the Indian Pacific. It is there that she meets Callum Hollingsworth. Both have kept their real jobs a secret from other passengers, and each other, so they won’t be bothered with people asking about their various ills and they can each enjoy the train experience. Their real life reality comes crashing through when one of the passengers suffers a heart attack.

The one night for Felicity and Callum is spectacular but they both know they will be going their separate ways. Neither realises that they will meet again in a small town where Flick is the community nurse and Callum is going to be the locum for a few months.

Flick loves the small town life but in some ways has been hiding after her last relationship broke down. Callum is also hiding from his surgeon life as he tries to restart his career as a general practitioner after his accident. In the beginning, Callum does many things the way he did them when he was the high flying surgeon but is quickly brought back to earth by Flick who takes him to task on his ‘bedside manner’.

There is a simmering chemistry between Flick and Callum but they wear their hurts too deeply. While they long for each other, there is the location difference to resolve which, naturally they do, so they can be together.

I liked this story, especially as it was set in South Australia. This couple are very sensitive to each other but also realise they have to get over their hurts to be together. There were certainly some interesting characters in the town, which made it a more enjoyable read.
