Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren't for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor.
When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected--and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be.
But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem.
Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.
"The patient thinks she's a hiccup," I announce.
Doctor Kent scratches his chin. "She has hiccups?"
"No. She believes that she is a hiccup, and she states that she has been a hiccup for a long time. Oh, and she would like to go home."
He arches an eyebrow. "I see. Does she have any signs and symptoms of someone who is a hiccup?"
I'm hit with a pulse of alarm. Doctor Kent isn't kidding. Did I miss a class about patients being hiccups? Or is there a different meaning of 'hiccup' that I'm not thinking of? How---
"I'm only messing with you." Doctor Kent gets to his feet.
"What?" I'm not sure whether to laugh or kill him. "You . . . you were . . ."
"I'll go give her my blessing so she can go home."
Doctor Kent heads off to Room Seven. I gaze after him. I have to admit that what he did was kind of funny. Actually, it was really funny.
