The Surgeon’s Wife by William H, Coles features Michael Boudreaux as the chief of surgery at the third largest hospital in New Orleans. Mike lacks aristocratic heritage and was cajun, brought up by his mother. He worked his way through hard work in spite of his background to become the best surgeon in the state. His teacher, mentor Clayton Otherson guided his promotions and appointments professionally in the world of surgery. Rosemary Dayside, Mike’s date for two years now got to relate with Claytons wife Catherine and both felt ignored by surgeons. Catherine with time found herself curious about Mike and sensed that he has a capacity for caring more than most surgeons.

Clayton has national reputation both in and outside New Orleans based on his contributions to the advancement of surgery for obese. As Clayton gets older, He began making mistakes, taking unnecessary risk and bad judgments. His mortality rate which is almost two percent became an issue that the operating room (OR) committee needs to attend to and take drastic measures. If a drastic action is taken Clayton will lose his license, it will be known by state and could ruin him and his family. Mike, the chair of the OR committee was part of those with the responsibility of taking actions against his mentor and senior partner.

Reading this book will treat the unanswered questions. Will Mike deviate from his ethics to save his mentor and friend? Will Clayton lose his license? Can Mike find true love? Are surgeons capable of love? Will Clayton have a chance at redemption? Will Clayton’s family survive the storm?

The Surgeon’s Wife is a book with a good story line and detailed characters. Even though the book is only 182 pages it never lacked any details. The book has no explicit content and little graphic violence which makes it very appropriate for younger teens up through adults. The book is not meant for lovers of action, adventure, and fantasy but its story line is that which will be enjoyed by all. The book is highly recommended to romance and fiction lovers.

This book was professionally edited with little unnecessary punctuation. Even with this complain the book flowed gracefully with good descriptive words and story line. I enjoyed every bit of the book because it gets you going with strong character well created. This book blends many characters together and it never for once looked like they were in a different book entirely. A great kudos to the author and therefore I am rating it 4 out of 4 stars
