Book Review: American Surgeon in London by Lynne Marshall

As soon as I finished the previous book in the 200 Harley Street series I picked up American Surgeon in London by Lynne Marshall. This is a series that is definitely easy to race through.

American Surgeon in London by Lynne Marshall Medical romance Mills & Bon

Plastic surgeon Mitchell Cooper used to have it all...

But when his life collapsed, he and his little daughter Molly moved to London to rebuild their lives – and Mitchell sealed off his damaged heart.

Yet after one star-studded night with fellow surgeon Grace, Mitchell finds himself daring to live again! 

Only Grace is hiding painful secrets of her own…

5 Word Review: Family, love, belonging, acceptance, .


Content Warnings: Medical procedures.

American Surgeon in London starts with a magical night that had me grinning like a Cheshire Cat.

Grace is a fantastic, layered character. I loved her insecurities, the parts of herself she wanted to keep hidden, her passion for her job. Also I'm pretty jealous of the apartment she stays in!

Mitchell is pretty bitter and guarded, although he tries to hid his emotions. He feels a bit jaded at times, but it absolutely makes sense once you learn his story. And he is devoted to Molly.

Molly was such a bright spark! As much as the small child was a side character, her scenes were so sweet. She'd a kid that's been raised right, despite her past, and she really came to life on the page. She felt so real.

I feel that this story very quickly brought on the intimacy. After fun and innocent the night they shared it was easy to watch the rapport build between them and the trust start to flow. And when they finally came together? It was excellent.

This was probably my least favourite book so far in this series, but it was still an excellent read. I just didn't like Mitchell's (understandable) qualms and hypocrisy when it comes to plastic surgery. 

Next up, The Soldier Prince by Kate Hardy.

  2. I have never read or heard of this book but it's sounds like a good book to me as I do love a good romance novel. There will always be least favourites and that's okay haha.

  4. 200 Harley Street - does that mean there are 200 books in the series? If so, it's lucky they're easy reads! Glad you enjoyed this one, Cora, even if it wasn't one of your faves :)
