I’m usually late to the party, assuming I turn up or have even been invited, but I’m just catching on to the joys of audiobooks.
Fellow author, and a lovely lady to boot, Iris Chacon is the reason for my foray into this world.
I admit to enjoying a good radio play, but getting the timing right is always an issue. The beauty of audiobooks is that you control when and where you listen to them.
Iris’s latest audio-baby is Duby’s Doctor.
A spinster doctor rents her spare room to a brain-damaged patient. Neither of them knows he is a former undercover agent targeted for execution by a powerful criminal.
John Doe remembers nothing of his life before waking up in the hospital. He doesn’t know he was a dangerous man, and he somehow has survived assassination by even more dangerous men. He doesn’t even know how to speak English, or read, or count. Even after his body heals, he will need long-term supervision and care to re-learn how to live.
Dr. Mitchell Oberon has been married to her surgical work for too long. So, she resists being attracted to a brain-damaged patient with the body of Adonis and the mind of a child.
Agent Frank Stone, of Homeland Security, forces the doctor to take John Doe into her own home while he recovers. Stone, who knows John Doe’s past history well, says it’s not safe to send him back to the place he lived before he was “killed” by his enemies. If it ever becomes known that John survives, his foes will make sure he doesn’t live long.
Read by Jenny Hoops, reviews are coming in with high praise for this delightful story with a touch of romance, intrigue and humour.
A fun light-hearted read, very well written. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of what at first glance seemed to be an out and out romance. Throw in a federal agent with amnesia, and Duby’s Doctor twists and turns into a mystery which kept me turning the pages. If you want a well written, fun read, peppered with romance and intrigue then this is one for you.
Duby’s Doctor is a must read. I loved it. Once I began reading it, I had to continue. It’s a fascinating love story so well written that makes you wonder what was going through the author’s mind. I just had to believe this author enjoys what she writes, doing it at the highest level of performance. This love story holds the readers’ interest until the very end. How, against all odds, Dr. Oberon and Duby were able to fulfill their dreams. But you will have to read this exciting story to discover how.
You can read this in a conventional way, in paperback or ebook, as well as now through Audible.
