Book and Audio 🎧 narrated by Iggy Tomi A okay book and a first narration for me for Iggy. A full of feelings "at times" as Hong-wai's secrets start unravelling. The forbidden feeling vs hospital policies their love would be true or die in the closet. As I listened to this I found myself skimming with the long bits drawn out storyline. This started out okay and I had a high expectations from the blurb but sadly didn't meet them, I love the author other works but a pass on this hmm. The narrator does an okay job with voices. Dr Hong-wai was wondering if he'd made the right decision to move to another location. Running from something and maybe family he makes a elderly friend on the plane. Met at the airport by Simon the hospitals surgeon nurse. Forbidden relations where not allowed between staff.
I'm a long time fan of Heidi Cullinan's work, there's just something about the characters and the stories that gets me - reading a Heidi Cullinan book feels like re-visiting family.
I loved Simon's embarrassment over his Asian drama obsession, Hong-Wei almost effortlessly becoming a big part of the local community after initially thinking he was making a big mistake in moving. I really enjoyed the comments and discussions over success and what each character considers success. Another fun, sweet story with great characters. Can't wait to read the next in the series!
