I've loved Victoria James' Shadow Creek series, so to be taken back so soon after the last visit was a treat.

"...from her first encounter with her Muffin Man, she’d known he was special."

The Doctor’s Redemption, the third book in Victoria James’ Shadow Creek, Montana Series is the story of Gwen Bailey and her mystery man known as The Muffin Man aka Luke Thomson. This is a standalone read, however, readers of the series will be happy to see past couples.

Five years ago, the Bailey fam ...more

I knew this one was going to beautifully emotional. I had the tissues handy especially for the last part of the book. Gwen is ready to live life again for herself and she has her sights on Luke.

This book is book three of the Shadow Creek, Montana series and while it could stand alone, one should REALLY read the first two books of the series for maximum impact. You should also read them because they are fabulous. All sex happens off-screen, and there is very minimal cursing and no f-bombs, ...more

Finally, Gwen gets her HEA! Such a twisted tale in this family. Love the small town atmosphere and all the love despite the tragedy. This is the third book of the series but stands well on it's own. Fans of the series will enjoy catching up with the previous couples.

I like how the author gives us s ...more

About the author

NY Times Best Selling, USA Today Best Selling Author

Victoria James

I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you've ever seen my drawings you'll know how horrible they must have been. I still draw stick figures). Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again. In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business. After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction. I'm a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after's for my characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but I'm quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat.
