Miners in Chile

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Chile has the biggest open-pit copper mines in the world, including Chuquicamata, located in the northern part of the Country. Chile is a long piece of land bathed by the clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean on one side and embraced by the Andes Mountains on the other.

Just what the Doctor Ordered by Sara Fitzgerald

This is a fast reading love story. Elizabeth is almost finished with school and needs just one more job to pay the expenses. All is great with her plans. In her mind she is well on her way to her dream of having a clinic of her own.

The problems start when the only job available is with the notoriously bad-tempered Doctor Jess Miller. She has always been able to tackle the hogs at home: surely she can manage one cranky doctor.

Doctor Miller, on the other hand, never breaks the rules, especially when he is trying to get a very important promotion in the clinic where he works. He likes his new secretary, but goes out of the way to keep her guessing and many times frustrated.

They start on the wrong foot, so Elizabeth is surprised when he asks her to be his secretary on a trip to Las Vegas. Things get interesting when another doctor shows interest in the girl and Jess become overprotective.

I enjoyed the way this tale developed; it presents great reading material. The romance was interesting and keeps the story moving.
