Dr. Elijah Hawkins needs … something.
After his wife jumps headfirst into a midlife crisis, he’s left with his young son, Roman, and a lot of unanswered questions.
That something turns out to be a someone—Dorothy Mayhem, nursing student, patient transporter, reckless driver, and emu owner.
Dorothy studies humans, the neurotypical kind, through books and television. Then she emulates their behavioral patterns to fit in with her peers.
But nothing can prepare her for Dr. Elijah Hawkins.
Brilliant pediatric oncologist.
And the sexiest doctor at the hospital.
When his failed attempts at asking her out turn into a string of playdates with his son, Dorothy finds herself unexpectedly enamored with the boy and his father.
And that’s a problem, a huge one, because Elijah’s ex-wife is a famous plastic surgeon—and Dorothy’s idol.
Perfectly Adequate is a beautiful, hilarious, and heart-felt journey along the “human” spectrum.
My review: **********
My admiration for this author is off the charts her writing is impeccable, her stories are unique never the same sentence written in any of her genre’s. She can write suspense, mystery, and rom-com like no other, she brings it all to the table, leaving pieces of herself in all her work.
You will fall in love with Dorothy Mayhem the best human being to ever grace us within these pages, you can tell that she was based on a real human being just by her huge personality and her gift of giving to others. She is a lover of animals, a nursing student, and she does Dorothy Mayhem better than anyone else.
Dr. Elijah Hawkins is mourning the life he once had with his ex-wife Dr. Julie Hathaway, who appears to be having a life crisis of her own. You will laugh out loud with some of the hijinks and cry at some other parts, your emotions will be all over the place, expect the unexpected, that’s also part of the Jewel effect!
