This was my first read of Bobby Hutchinson and it will not be my last. It became evident to me right from the beginning of the story that this is a seasoned author who has a passion for writing and has really honed her skill.

All of the characters are well designed and engaging, from my favorite, Cameron, to his "beautiful lady", Alex, and all of the supporting characters in between. There are a few very descriptive action scenes that I found were easy to picture in my mind. I could feel the tension in parts of the story which I absolutely love.

The story is about the conflicting relationship between Cameron (who I quickly identified with) and his wife, Alex, and their struggle with career choices and the inadvertent toll it takes on their marriage. There are sensual and erotic love scenes, but they are tastefully done and I enjoyed reading them aloud to my wife before bed. The love scenes really brought the passion the characters felt to life while leaving just enough to the imagination to keep me glued to my Kindle (I stayed up way too late finishing it).

I also have a lot of respect for an author who takes the necessary time to research what they are writing about. For example, the medical and police jargon added to the story, whereas if the author hadn't gone the extra mile to ensure the story was authentic, readers (like me) would poke holes in the story and completely lose interest altogether.

I also like to read an author's bio before I begin a story so that I might make a connection between their life experience and what I'm reading. Passion, in my opinion, comes from an author's ability to combine their real-life experiences with fiction, and Drastic Measures is the result of just that.

It's tough not to put a few quotes from the story in here - I generally avoid doing that - because it would be much more convincing than my ramblings. I highly recommend this one, cheers!

Covers not only the what but also the why. This marriage is almost over just because of lack of communication. In the end the benefit of these decisions that were forced on this couple were a good thing. Husband says "We're moving" wife says w h a t????? But the problems arise out of not facing things together. All of them.

Forced to make life changing choices that take their careers to places beyond what they had "signed" up for put a strain on Cam and Alex marriage. Cam has to deal with rural community as a RCMP without resources and Alex an incompetent egotistical physician partner who is making unwise decisions regarding patients lives. This new life can either make or break their marriage.

The story line was good. Lots of "wrong" words - so would have to read some sentences more than once to see what the word should be. I don't mean typos. Just wrong words -- i.e. than for them and than for then -- seems every time the typist typed "th" the word than came jup and no one corrected it. Does distract from reading. Thought the plot was good --showing that people have to make sacrifices in marriages to make them work. Also need to be responsible even if it mean getting another person in trouble even when they do deserve it. I have read other books of this author and she is a good story teller, but needs better proof readers.

A great adventure into the lives of an ER physician and her husband, a policeman. Both of these professions are very demanding with long hours and difficult on-the-spot decisions. The story keeps you in much suspense after Sergeant Cameron Ross makes a big job decision, which eventually takes him to a small town city. Dr. Alexandar Ross was shocked her husband did this without consulting her first. Cameron does not tell her the whole story about his present undercover job or why he actually took this transfer. Cam moved to the new small town and Alex followed a few weeks later, very unhappy about the move. She really liked her ER position in the big city hospital and misses her previous co-workers. Their happy lives soon result in many difficult problems with little time to talk or work them out. This story is very well written keeping the reader anxious to keep reading.

I absolutely loved this story and the characters. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the editing errors. Throughout the entire book everywhere the word "them" is supposed to be used the word "than" was used, "feel" was "fed" and in several places "Alex" was "Ales". There were a few others but those are the ones I remember being confused by while reading.

This is the perfect book! It has love, conflict ( both in a relationship and in the workforce) and the process of working though them. It speaks of men and women that are real. I empathised with the characters! This book draws you in and holds you there. It is a great read and I could hardly put it down!

A great romantic medical drama! Great characters and storyline characterizing both large and small town peccadillos and stereotyping. The medical side was spot-on, and the strides of the couple were very realistic. A great read!
