"How far would you go to help the ones you love? How far would you go to prevent them from feeling pain? Now, how far would you go to save yourself?

Life was supposed to be straightforward for Cass Wilkes. After finishing college she’d secured a job that most dreamt of, but never came close to. Her career as a surgeon would be her identity, her armour. Her rank would speak for itself so she wouldn’t have to. But what happens when a crack forms in the life you’ve built? When something completely out of your control, something you could never have planned for threatens to upend everything you’ve worked so hard for? What happens when you can’t touch the threat?

When the call for help comes from her best friend, Cass makes the easy decision to leave London behind for a while, holding out hope that things will be back to normal when she returns.

Expecting to find solace in a new project that’s worlds apart from the stress and responsibility of her normal job, what she doesn’t expect is to be presented with the prospect of a completely new start. She takes refuge in a big city thousands of miles from home, that unbeknownst to her, will show her real love, true loss, and fill her with utter hope. During her time in San Francisco, Cass will be tasked to overcome the things she never knew were chasing her."

Review:
I signed up to the blog tour for this book knowing nothing about the author. I was intrigued by the synopsis as it sounded like a wonderful book. I then discovered that is has been self-published by the author and what a gem of a book this is! 

Cass Wilkes and Gaby Diaz are friends who met at university in London. Both are surgeons, Cass staying in London and Gaby moving to San Francisco to work.

Cass is on sabbatical and Gaby invites her over to work on a prosthetics project with her. Although quite a relatively short book, there is a lot packed into it. I love the characters of Gaby and Cass and the supporting characters of Adam and his friendly dog Bear, and Gaby's boyfriend Mike and his friend Garret, who are also doctors.

Sparks do fly between Garret and Cass but it isn't really the main theme of the story. We discover why Cass is on sabbatical and how being in San Francisco is helping her, in a sense. 

I like the medical theme running through this book and it is easy to follow. The characters are all well-developed and I feel like we know a lot about them. It is very fast-paced, especially the romance between Cass and Garret. I would love for it to be a bit longer as I just wanted more!
