Publisher's Summary

A brilliant child protégée, she dreams of becoming a doctor and a surgeon...and accomplishes her goals. Unfortunately, her youth and round, childlike face work against her. No matter how skilled she becomes, how knowledgeable, the old school, male-dominated medical hierarchy wants to keep her in her place.

Deanna has worked hard to become an expert in her chosen field, but few believe this "child" capable. Specializing in infectious diseases, she travels the world - from the States to Europe to South America - honing her skills before winding up in Africa where her skills are desperately needed. 

Meeting a nurse by the name of Madison MacGregor, she finds they share an insatiable curiosity and a love of helping others, but falling in love was not what she intended. Later, when she loses Maddie to a misunderstanding, she is haunted by the one that got away....

Ten years have passed, and both the doctor and nurse have moved on with their lives, but fate intervenes when they find themselves working at the same hospital. Their friendship is revived.... Can their love be rekindled? Will the past haunt them or bring them closer? Will the secrets that both harbor keep them from realizing a future together?

Beautifully crafted reunion romance

The opening of the book has Madison receive exotic flowers from a secret admirer. Discovering who sent her the flowers takes her back into the past when she spent time in Africa as a Nurse. There she first met the smart and enigmatic doctor Deanna Cooper and fell slowly in love with her. The fear of gossip and rejection has her end the relationship before they could figure out if their love could flourish.
Ten years later in a hospital in Los Angeles the two woman meet again, the life they led had changed and matured them. They form a tentative friendship in the sometimes hostile environment of a LA Hospital and old feelings start to raise their head.

The story has wonderfully developed characters that draw you in from the first chapter and have you fall in love with them. Exotic places throughout the the book draw you in and the description and narration make it easy to picture Madison and Deanna in the African countryside as well as working side by side ten years later.
K'Anne Meinel has a great way of showing all the little things that just happen in life and make up the big picture of a young woman maturing into adulthood.

I loved the way Amelia Patricks brings the individual characters to life with their own unique voice and draws you deep into the story.

Linda D

This was a great story, I really enjoyed it. Great how it explained the beginning of the relationship. I would like to say more, but you need to read the book. No spoil alerts here.
Thank you k’Anne Meinel

I am not sure what to even think.

After reading the reviews I thought this would be a great listen. Maybe the actual book was, but the narrator ruined this for me. Dee's "Boston" accent was awful and there were times that she would speak in the accent when Maddison was talking. Maybe that voice was my main turn off with this one. I am assuming the book is better, so maybe try it.

Loved It

This was an excellent, well written book that I didn’t want to stop listening to and I definitely didn’t want it to end. I will definitely be reading and listening to more books written by K’Anne. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars to the performance was because it seemed like some of the characters accents came and went!! Otherwise, fantastic all the way around!

Even better as an audiobook

I read this book several months ago and really enjoyed it. The narration made it even better. The story is fantastic, and the narrator really captured the characters.

Wonderfully Romantic Book

Love born in Africa but not brought to competition is found again in Los Angeles ten years later. Deanna, a prodigy doctor, and Madison, a nurse, meet and fall in love. When fear keeps Madison from committing and Deanna from articulating her feelings they separate. Good performance.

Ten years later they cross paths at a hospital in Los Angeles. Will they find their way back to the love that binds them.

A book of a great surprise

It took about an hour until I got into this book, but Amelia Patricks does a very good job reading this book. And the story line is excellent. The characters are very well developed, the dialogues are interesting. And as I said the story line is absolutely engaging...
The beginning is a little confusing but once you get over the confusion you will enjoy it very much

Loved it

It is the kind of book that you listen from beginning to end none stop.
The only thing that I missed while listening was viewing it in images. Making this book in a film would make it the film of the year.
Madison and Diana are two women that find each other after starting their story in Africa and getting back to California 10 year later. Diana works hard to get Madison back and rebuild their relationship and love. Their love is stronger than all the hurdles they face, such as a crazy ex-husband, and mother. Luckily for Diana and Madison, they can live happily ever after.
Must listen :-)

Excellent Audio!

I loved Doctored by K'Anne Meinel. Beautiful story. The combination of the tension in the beginning of the book with the hope and fragility of the situation makes for very interesting reading/listening. I loved all the different settings. Loved Deanna and Madison. Amelia Patricks does an excellent job with the narration.

Good story.

This for me was good story and to be honest i think that the book itself would of been better. The narrator spoilt it for me as she talked like there wasn't a comma or full stop for a long time. I would recommend that this book be read rather than listened to.

Not my cup of tea

I'm not familiar with the author and I wanted to try her work now that she entered the world of audiobooks. I enjoyed the beginning of this book, the storyline and adventures in Africa, the description of life there, the conflicts, the connections, the culture.
Back in the USA I found the story was pretty much like a soap opera, with an awful lot of drama, tedious details, sudden revelations and it went on and on. The narrator was suitable for the story and I'm sure there are enough people who would enjoy this audiobook - it's just not for me.

Decent

If Wilbur Smith wrote lesbian fiction it would be like this. Easy listening, decent storyline
