JANUARY, 2018 BETWEEN THE PIPES: In the Game Hockey Romance, Book One By: Linda O’Connor The Plot: Sarah Jain is a family doctor in a hockey-crazy town. She hates hockey. She hasn‟t gone anywhere near a rink in years, until her friend, the team doctor, calls in a favour. Mike Wallace is the starting goalie for the Clarington Quakes, the local professional hockey team. He‟s not about to let an injury slow him down or a rookie doctor call the shots. Sarah and Mike don‟t respect each other‟s jobs. When they have to work together, sparks fly and ice melts. Can they play a game they both can win? Love on the ice doesn‟t always go smoothly. Reviews Welcome. Available in E-Book At: Amazon An Excerpt: Sarah would love to spend time with Mike, but her con- science said no. First, he was a patient, and second, how could she get involved with a hockey player? Passion for hockey was the last thing they‟d ever share. “I‟m sorry. I can‟t.” “You sure?” He smiled slowly. “I could spring for a jelly donut.” She laughed. He didn‟t have to sweeten the invitation. “Tempting, but…” “How „bout an apple fritter? Sounds a little healthier.” It really was too bad. “I was going to go for a bike ride.” That was good. She had plans. Nothing personal. “I could come along and prove I‟m okay.” He looked so hopeful. She felt awful, but she needed to dissuade him. “I don‟t go very fast.” Sarah winced. He poten- tially had a rib fracture. He needed slow. “And it might rain.” She scowled at the blue skies. Mike laughed. “I can grab a picnic lunch, and we can cycle along the river. How does that sound?” Perfect, she thought glumly. For a bad idea, it sounded per- fect.
