The first book in this series showed the heart behind Red Hill Farms and fostering children while this one, the second, shows the hands and feet. There’s and abundance of heart (and heartache) in this story too.
About the Book
After becoming a foster parent to a young boy, equine therapist Jordan Conley’s life gets turned upside down. Little Levi is in need of an exceptional pediatrician, which means seeking help from Dr. Ash Sheehan—a man that, despite her heart-pounding crush, isn’t her type. Her life is horses and hay, and she can’t imagine the suit-clad doctor in a pair of cowboy boots. As a confirmed bachelor, Ash has never been nervous around women, but there’s something about Jordan that flusters him, and working closely together doesn’t help. The last thing he’s looking for is long-term romance. But the more involved he gets, the more he wishes they could stay together…always.

In My Opinion
While the foster kids (one in particular who we will get to in a few seconds) steal the show in A Baby for the Doctor, Jordan’s soft heart toward hurting children is apparent throughout. It’s that heart that draws Ash Sheehan to her in the first place.
As a pediatrician, Ash himself has a fantastic connection with the children of Red Hill Springs. And he has his own difficult childhood that gives him empathy for injured and ill little ones.
The attraction bubbles under the surface for this entire book but it’s little Levi that makes this a five star read. His situation broke my heart and as Jordan loves this little boy and he slowly begins to trust her, a beautiful picture of God’s love for us is formed. He’s always there, watching over us, waiting for us to trust Him enough to fall into His arms and plans, to run to Him when we’re scared, hurting, or lost.
Stephanie Dees’ ability to draw that connection is spot-on in this book and if you missed it, you should definitely make room for it on your to-read list.
