April Moore has always been an impulsive dreamer. So when she shows up in Cherry Lake, announcing that she’s there to stay and start her own business–a design studio florist shop–her sisters are pleased, but more than a little skeptical. A lot more than pride is riding on her new business adventure, and April doesn’t have time to get distracted, especially not by the handsome doctor who shares office space with her. Unfortunately, April’s never been one to keep her head down and opinions to herself, and she’s barely opened for business before she thinks her first design project should involve the quiet man next door doing his best to ignore her bubbly attempts at friendship.
For someone so young, Dr David Morrison is firmly set in his ways. He’s returned to Cherry Lake temporarily to take over his father’s family practice until he can sell it and return to Seattle to rebuild his life and career. He’s always played it safe and isn’t looking for change, fireworks, or romance. Unfortunately, the vivacious April embodies all three. Each meeting is like touching a live wire, and David finds himself entranced.
Opposites attract, but can they find a happy ever after?

My Rating: 4 stars
I enjoyed stepping back into the world of Cherry Lake once again. April’s story is an enjoyable mix of family expectations and opposites attract. April has always been the dreamer of the family and she sees no reason to change herself for anyone else, including those she loves. Her return home to set up her own unique shop is a step towards her family finally seeing that she can make a plan and stick to it – but also a way to do that in her own unique style. She didn’t set out to fall in love with the uptight doctor next door but sometimes life gets complicated in all the right ways.
David is charming in a stuck in his own pothole way. He plays life safe. Maybe he has reasons to feel that he has to do that, but someone unique is going to have to come along to show him how to step out of his self-imposed safety zone and really live his life. And April is exactly the woman to do that with wit, charm, stubbornness and an attraction that even uptight David cannot deny for very long. Watching these two find their way to a happy ending was an enjoyable journey full of family. fun, issues, and laughter. I liked them both but together they lit up the sky. I would definitely recommend Doctor’s Orders to any Contemporary Romance reader, and encourage you go go check out the rest of the series. They are all enjoyable, interesting slice of life romances to get caught up in.
