Recent medical school graduates, Randy Hanson, Jim Ryan, and Bruce Buckman are now into their individual residency placements, where they continue their specialized medical training. As they work to establish their reputations as physicians, they struggle to find balance between their careers and their responsibilities as husbands and fathers. Throughout this journey, they celebrate successes, encounter unexpected hurdles, and learn that the life of a physician isn’t always beer and pretzels.
In Sand & Sutures, the second book in the Scrubs series, many of the same characters are back, including Randy, Jane, Jim, Bruce, and Amanda. A few new characters are introduced, one of which is a resident doctor named Greg Hutchins.
What People Are Saying About Sand & Sutures:
Voted Texas Authors 2017 Best Medical Fiction Book of the Year!
“I LOVED THIS BOOK…Sand & Sutures has a very pleasing quick and efficient pace, covering about 3 years or so of the joy and happiness, anger and fear, the celebrations and some of the lower points that occur in all of the characters lives, much like the peaks and valleys that occur in own lives…The timing and pace was PERFECT. I wonder if this might be due to the author’s editing abilities and if this is true, author L.M. Nelson is a true GENIUS…the characters are incredibly well developed, each one as interesting as the next…I quickly became emotionally involved and invested in each character. I find this to be a great asset to a story and an impressive skill on the part of the author…L.M. Nelson writes dialogue, both internal and verbal, with the precision of a surgeon…Her style is precise but not sharp, her characters are warm and inviting but not sticky and gooey and she is a master when it comes to dialogue and pace in her writing, a perfect trifecta…enjoyed by men and women alike, the young and old, people from all walks of life, [Sand & Sutures] would make a great gift because of the book’s universal appeal and exceptionally good writing…” –Opus Book Review
“Fantastic Read, Highly Entertaining, A Book for Everyone!” –Teri Pietila, Amazon Review
“I enjoyed this book so much, as I enjoy medical stories. I used a few tissues near the end. I really enjoyed that this lasted longer, as I read slower, since I enjoyed it so much.” -Barbara, Goodreads review
