Author Biography

Christina Esdon is a hopeless romantic and dreamer extraordinaire. She loves to see the world through rose-colored glasses (literally) and has the uncanny ability to find humor and joy in the small things in life. When not writing, she can be found frolicking along the shores of Lake Huron, taking notoriously long bubble baths or contemplating the next renovation to her home in Ontario, Canada.

Reese Morgan is a psychologist in Westwood General’s psych ward, but volunteers some of her time to the patients and their families in the children’s ward. However, that ward is about to be closed down and children will be transferred to a nearby hospital that is building a new wing for them. Josh Montgomery is an architect and the contractor that was hired to demolish the said ward. Reese had a sister with a terminal illness when she was a child, and back then there was no one that helped them when the going got rough and so when she grew up it inspired her to help the families that are experiencing the same things as her family did.

"Work in Progress" by Christina Esdon is a very nice read. It is romantic. The guy, Josh, never gave up even though Reese had a lot of setbacks. I liked the part when Reese joined her own anger management group and when she found Josh in one of the patients' room entertaining a child. I also liked the way they met, not in the hospital but somewhere else. But I shouldn’t give much away. The couple experienced a lot of troubles in the span of the book but the book ends happily. There were times when I thought Reese won’t be able to get over some of her issues so I was glad that she overcame them all and ended up with Josh. Some characters and stories were introduced in the book that I think would make very good stories for the next in the series.
