Back in Northbridge for a wedding, former society wife Faith Perry is surprised by the hostile reception she gets when she takes her injured dog to vet Boone Pratt. After all, they knew each other in high school, and her cousin is about to marry his sister! The truth is that Boone's still nursing a crush -- and a grudge -- from the past. Getting to know grown-up Faith changes all that -- there's nothing childish about Boone's feelings now! Victoria Pade's The Doctor Next Door (3) is a little short on action and genuine conflict, but the characters are well written, and the relationship is nicely developed.
