Don’t Drop the Baby (Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor, Book 1) by Linda O’Connor

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is only second to her skill at matchmaking!

Ross Skye, owner of BabyCare, a high-end line of baby merchandise, is injured in an accident, and Brogan uses her cooking, medical – and matchmaking – skills to help him out. Dr. Lauren Ross is taking care of her nephew for two weeks, and Brogan agrees to babysit while Lauren is at work.

Two years ago, Ross and Lauren dated. At that time, Lauren wanted kids, but Ross wasn’t keen. Now the tables have turned, and Ross is trying to convince Lauren that they’d make an awesome parenting team. Brogan suggests they test drive parenthood by looking after a simulated baby for a week – a computerized version that eats, sleeps, wets, and cries. Ross and Lauren experience the “joy” of having a newborn firsthand, and the bar is set pretty low. Their first goal is: don’t drop the baby. The second goal is to find out if their love for each other will survive the test of…parenting.

Why did you write this book?

I thought it would be fun to write a romantic comedy series about a retired doctor who upgrades her M.D. from Medical Doctor to Matchmaking Doctor. Dr. Brogan Corkie brings couples together and gives them a nudge in the right romantic direction. A second romance overarching through all the books is Brogan’s romance. She practices what she preaches.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love reading romantic comedies, romance in general, and cozy mysteries.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

My favourite fictional character is Andy Carpenter, a reluctant lawyer who helps solve mysteries in the Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt. He’s brilliant and funny (as is the author!).

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m editing the third book and writing the fourth book of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series. It’s a Christmas romantic comedy!

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’ll be releasing Don’t Forget the Dog, Book 2 in May 2020 and Don’t Unravel the Past, Book 3 of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series in August 2020. And look for Book 4, a Christmas romance, in November. Can’t wait!
