500 Miles From You
Summary: New York Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan returns to the beloved Scottish Highland town of Kirrinfief, which readers first met in The Bookshop on the Shore, and adds a dash of London’s bustling urban landscape.
Lissie, is a nurse in a gritty, hectic London neighborhood. Always terribly competent and good at keeping it all together, she’s been suffering quietly with PTSD after helping to save the victim of a shocking crime. Her supervisor quietly arranges for Lissie to spend a few months doing a much less demanding job in the little town of Kirrinfeif in Scottish Highlands, hoping that the change of scenery will help her heal. Lissie will be swapping places with Cormack, an Army veteran who’s Kirrinfeif’s easygoing nurse/paramedic/all-purpose medical man. Lissie’s never experienced small-town life, and Cormack’s never spent more than a day in a big city, but it seems like a swap that would do them both some good.
In London, the gentle Cormack is a fish out of the water; in Kirrinfief, the dynamic Lissie finds it hard to adjust to the quiet. But these two strangers are now in constant contact, taking over each other’s patients, endlessly emailing about anything and everything. Lissie and Cormack discover a new depth of feeling…for their profession and for each other.
But what will happen when Lissie and Cormack finally meet…?
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Jenny Colgan is one of those authors that I haven’t read a ton of her books, but after reading one- I wonder why I don’t read more of them- because I truly enjoy them (see my review of The Bookshop on the Corner!)
What I Liked:
I thought the cover was so cute!
Lissa and Cormack. Both of them needed a shakeup and that is what they got when they swapped places. Plus, I loved their getting to know each other emails.
The setting. I’ve never been to Scotland- but I love the description!
Bottom line: This was cute and fun and I really enjoyed it. It did have a serious side to the plot and that just gave it another layer.
