The Artist's Healer (Grace-by-the-Sea Book 3) Kindle Edition
Will a romance with the enemy prove her undoing?
Spunky artist and entrepreneur Abigail Archer is determined to see her friend, Jesslyn Denby, restored as director of the spa at Grace-by-the-Sea, even if that means ousting the news physician who took her place. A shame she was recently injured and requires him to dance attendance on her. But if he thinks she’ll meekly accept his orders, he’d better think again!
Doctor Linus Bennett came to the little coastal village with his young son to escape a troubled past. He’s not about to lose his post to some crusader, but the pretty painter awakens feelings he’d thought long buried. When it appears the French are about to invade, Abigail and Linus must work together to save the village. In doing so, the doctor may just find that falling in love with the outspoken Abigail is the best prescription to heal his wounded heart.
If you love sweet, witty Regency romances with a touch of adventure, then you’ll love The Artist’s Healer, the third book in the Grace-by-the-Sea series by an award-winning author.

"The Artist's Healer is a wonderful addition to the Grace-by-the-Sea series. Watching Linus and Abigail fall for each other was very sweet." Britt Reads Fiction
"Even with the mystery, with the French trying to take over their small town, and Abigail ready to take on the French by herself there is a certain peaceful security in the characters and their calm assurance that things would end for the good that seemed to prevail throughout the book." Hott Book Reviews
"Regina Scott writes some pretty strong female characters - which are uncommon for the time in which her stories take place. If you enjoy historical romance with a touch of intrigue, you will want to read The Artist's Healer." Among the Reads

Dr. Bennett has rarely had a patient with such a stubborn nature or eagerness to be up and about. If she is not more careful, Abigail could lose her entire arm. Yet the more time he spends with her, the more he comes to care for her. His son, Ethan, has certainly taking a liking to Abigail and her mother. So when it becomes apparent that at least three more French agents are in the area, Linus discovers that he will do everything in his power to protect his new village - especially Ethan, Abigail, and her mother.
**** FOUR STARS! Though each story in the series stands alone, if you have read the previous tales, you will see some familiar secondary characters and find out what has become of them. As for Abigail and Linus, I found myself vastly amused to watch them go toe-to-toe. The both obviously care strongly for everyone in the village and both are intelligent. Never does the author have them do stupid or crazy stuff to further along the plot line. (I have always considered that to be weak writing.) There is no miscommunications either. Everything is straight up. I look forward to more stories from this cozy village by the sea. ****

It was a delight to be back in Grace-by-the-Sea, a tightknit community where everyone knows everything about everyone. Abigail grew up with an abusive father, and this has led to her not trusting anyone knew. It was slightly irritating that she blamed Dr. Bennett for Jesslyn's dismissal and makes a plan to see him leave. This seemed like a short-sighted plan because why would the council bring Jesslyn back and not look for another physician? Her character shifted easily and made it difficult to like her.
Dr. Bennett, on the other hand, I really liked. His past haunts him: his wife had never settled down to married life and their son suffered for it. He feels over his head trying to adjust to the ways the visitors to the spa expect. Though he wishes for peace, he is soon drawn into the threat of a French invasion.
The plot is well-paced and never lags. The supporting characters were delightful as usual. The only thing keeping me from all 5 stars is my personal dislike for Abigail. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet Regency romance.
This third book in the series doesn’t disappoint just as the previous two.
Linus and Abigail are dealing with a new mystery, new lives learning to trust and heal from the past.
It has spying, danger and drama mixed with action and romance.
A great read as a stand alone but so much better for the previous two books... and now for the next one!
