Description

It was love at first brush-off...

Dr. Daniel Durand wanted Winnie Baker the minute he laid eyes on her. Never mind that she's his attending physician's daughter, can't stand him, and she's a few years older than him. Giving up would've been the smart thing to do when the hot blonde midwife gave him the cold shoulder at the elevators his first week of residency at Santiam, but he never did give up easy. After bonding over early-morning Mexican food, can he convince her that he's just the arm candy she needs for that wedding...and get her to consider one of their own?

Winnie Baker isn't taking her cousin to another wedding. Her mentor's big day is far too important to miss. And she's not going by herself, not with her ex-boyfriend promising to be in attendance and blowing up her phone with texts on a weekly basis, asking for another chance. But the pickings are a bit slim in Timber Falls, a sleepy Oregon town in the foothills of the Cascades. She moved here to focus on building her midwifery practice, not get involved with cute millennial boys with trendy shoes and long eyelashes. And yet, even this small rural hospital is feeling a bit crowded, with her mother and her group of doctors-in-training constantly underfoot...especially since she was supposed to be one of those doctors.

Could Be Something Good is the first book in the Timber Falls romantic comedy series. It contains mild cursing, a make-out scene involving melted butter and stolen moments in medical supply closets, but no open door sex scenes. If you like ridiculous bets, meddling relatives, and reverse dates, grab this book now.

Review quote

"This was such a sweet romance! Totally addicted from the first page, I stayed up until the early hours of the morning to read this book all in one sitting! Winnie and Daniel are an adorable couple - two genuinely lovely people with insecurities and vulnerabilities that they support one another through. Funny, smart, a little bit geeky - I cannot recommend this story enough!" --Liv Burrell, NetGalley

"I loved this book! It was such a sweet story that made me smile, a great rom-com: ) The characters were very believable and I really enjoyed their reactions to the different situations (lots of laughter involved), while still showing the characters growth as people throughout the story. I though that Fiona West told a fun story, and showed some really good life lessons about perseverance, doing what's right for you, and that it's okay to take time to smile. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars for the cool references, the great character build up, and for making me smile: ) I truly enjoyed this book and definitely recommend reading it!" -- Kimberly Werntz, NetGalley

"This cozy series debut from West (The Borderline Chronicles series) invites readers to the charming small town of Timber Falls, Ore. When Daniel Durand returns to his hometown to complete his medical residency at the local hospital, he's immediately smitten by midwife Winifred Baker. After his unflattering first impression, Winnie rebuffs Daniel's advances; she's still raw from the breakup of her long-term relationship with her high school sweetheart, Ethan, and self-conscious about dating a younger man. But they soon bond over their shared love of graphic novels, and after Winnie realizes she may have misjudged Daniel, she asks him to accompany her to a wedding Ethan is also attending. As their feelings deepen, Daniel's determined to prove his intentions are sincere to Winnie, her mother, and the entirety of Timber Falls if necessary. The low stakes are comforting rather than boring, giving this joyful romance the perfect slice-of-life feel. The endearing cast, sweet love story, and fully realized setting will be more than enough to keep the pages turning. This is small-town romance done right." --Publishers Weekly starred review
