Product Description

Running away didn't solve anything ... at least, not the first time.

Intensive care nurse Mackenzie Jones is no stranger to running. As a teenager she fled her family home, leaving tragedy and loss in her wake. Now, after fifteen years alone in Sydney, with the strain of working in a city hospital wearing her thin, she's tempted to run again.

Mackenzie jumps at the chance to work in a mining town in the Western Australian desert – anything to lift her spirits. Though she barely dares to hope, she wonders if she might find the kind of love that can ease her loneliness.

In the outback, Nathan Kennedy is at a loose end. He's been making money in the mines for years, and pressure from his family to return to the east coast, settle down and get married is reaching fever pitch. The problem is, he hasn't met the right woman.

When Mackenzie turns up in town, there's an instant attraction between her and Nathan, maybe even true love. But tragedy's not done with Mackenzie Jones – the past is about to catch up with her in more ways than one.

Can Nathan convince Mackenzie to stop running, or is this just another tragedy in the making?

A sweet medical romance set in the outback of Australia, perfect for fans of Fiona McArthur and Melanie Milburne.

I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the predecessor, Intensive Care, but it was still a good rural medical read.
Mackenzie is plagued by self-doubt, has some deep-seated family issues and is slightly larger than all the 'skinny' girls she finds herself surrounded by - which is only an issue for me when she feels happier and more comfortable with herself after losing some weight.
I found the scenes where Mackenzie's family issues came to a head and were resolved rather anti-climactic because the resolution was so brief compared to the wounds of the relationship which festered for years.
The progress of Mackenzie and Nathan's relationship also felt the brunt of Mackenzie's insecurities, and at times felt like it was taking one step forward and two steps back with each encounter. This allowed some issues to be explored in greater detail, but glossed over aspects.
The medical side of the story lived up to all I expected from Intensive Care and did a great job illustrating the scene of a small rural/remote hospital. The characters of Iron Ridge added a lot to the scene simply by their attitudes or actions. I loved the downplaying attitude of the scene involving the publicans.
I was under the impression by the end of the book that a third story was planned featuring Joel's twin Liam (who has featured I both books so far - and come across as a bit of a tool, to be honest) and Lily, a nurse at the hospital with Kate and Mackenzie. I will be interested to see how the author crafts his turnaround from cad to hero if this is the case.
It was a little disappointing to see an Australian author writing a story set in Australia using a fair amount of 'Aussie lingo' with American spelling though.

Mackenzie Jones meets the handsome Nathan Kennedy at a wedding, then finds herself on the other side of the country, but working in the same tiny rural town as Nathan. They start seeing each other, but the relationship is cut short when Mackenzie is called back home—her estranged father is dying, and as the oldest child, the unattached child, and the nurse in the family, he becomes her unwelcome responsibility.

The writing was very good. There were some intentionally humorous lines (“she’s got a better backside than Pippa Middleton”) and some I found funny even though they weren’t intended to be (“she had a strong New Zealand accent”. Really. Have these Aussies ever listened to themselves?).

And one part of the story was unexpectedly poignant—a visit to the degazettted town of Wittenoom, site of the blue asbestos mine made famous (to me, at least) by Midnight Oil and their song, Blue Sky Mining. That’s not for the faint-hearted.

Although Nicki Edwards is a Christian, Emergency Response isn’t Christian fiction. This means there is some content you wouldn’t normally see in a Christian novel (e.g. consumption of alcohol), but it is still classified as a “clean read”. Well, except for the blood. But I guess a little blood is to be expected with a medical romance set in rural Australia. Recommended. As long as you don’t mind the blood.

Thanks to Momentum Books and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

Great read - nice to find a link with the characters from the first book in it.... and read them in order as I gather the next one continues from book 2.
Some solid research has gone on for Nicki to bring this book to life so well. I enjoyed it greatly but did find it a little too quick to wrap up some of the issues with Mackenzie's family. I guess it was all about Mackenzie and Nathan really ! Off to download book 3 ....

“Running away didn't solve anything ... at least, not the first time.”

After leaving her family home under a cloud, intensive care nurse Mackenzie Grace Jones is on her way again. Fifteen years spent working in a busy city hospital is quiet enough. When an opportunity to work in Western Australia’s Pilbara comes up, Mackenzie snaps it up. Mackenzie is a beautiful character, dealing with past difficulties and many insecurities. Once again Ms Edwards has discreetly dealt with an issue that affects many of us, that of body image.
Mackenzie’s relationship with Nathan unfolds beautifully, however there are many twists and turns, and bends in the road that must be overcome. Both of Ms Edwards’ main characters are looking for that one perfect person, that happily ever after – but is there really any such thing? The issue of the importance of trust within a relationship is tackled and handled well.
The writing style was very good and just so easy to read, with the descriptions of scenery, in particular of the Pilbara being absolutely exquisite. I’ve never been to this magical place, but I could see it all so clearly. Also the brief coverage of Wittenoom was brilliant. I knew nothing about the history of this town and found it very interesting. Emergency Response delved into the medical side of things much more than the first book in this series, which was a good thing. It wasn’t overdone and the medical concepts were well explained and easy to understand. It was lovely to continue travelling with the characters of Intensive Care, the first book in this series.
It isn’t necessary to read Intensive Care first to follow this lovely romance, but I would recommend that you do. If you like to read a book with lovable but believable characters, a book that makes you want to keep reading, and then wait impatiently for the next book in the series, then this is one of the books you should be reading.
