Faced with searing heat, patients as far as the eye can see and a less than adequate billing procedure, Dr Derek Thomas could be forgiven for wondering just what he had gotten himself into. Just one reminder of the pain and humiliation his ex heaped upon him back in New York is enough to snap him out of it, though. He headed South in search of a purpose to his life, as well as to escape his past. To his surprise, Derek’s new colleague Juan may just be able to help him with both.

El Cedral is a great short story packed with everything I could ask for. The descriptions are so vivid and colorful that I felt transported to another world. The plot engaged me immediately as I wanted to know what had been going on with Derek for him to make such a change in his life. With appealing main characters that sizzle with chemistry, an ex who’s just asking for his comeuppance and the possibilities of much, much more, this was a very enjoyable read.

El Cedral is part of Torquere Press’ Charity Sip 2010 Healing Hearts.
