Central character, Doctor
Zack Folsom, a talented cardiac surgeon, loving husband and father,
becomes a man preoccupied, after suddenly losing his wife Emily in a
fatal car accident. To avoid the pain of his loss, he throws himself
into his work dedicating the majority of his time and energy to his
medical practice gaining him the reputation of being "all business"
while he constantly wields an irascible and crudely sarcastic
Although he experiences great success
as a competent surgeon, he also deeply feels the emptiness of the void
left by his wife's death. Meanwhile, his only son Brody who is very
much in need of a loving relationship with his father especially after
the loss of his mother is now raised and cared for by Emily's family.
Consequently, the relationship between father and son eventually
festers into a dysfunctional and emotionally fractured relationship as
Brody feels ignored and essentially parent-less, and in turn grows to
hold onto a deep and resounding resentment against his
However, a turning point occurs when things change as a twist
of fate brings a lucrative offer to purchase Zack's start up, a
surgical robotics company. The offer not only bears opportunities that
would allow Zack freedom from a now disenchanting career, but also
brings a beautiful and intelligent lawyer, Gabriella Bennett into his
life. As a mutual attraction develops, she helps to bring closure to
some of the complexities and emptiness in his life. Overall
a satisfying read, The Perfect Match lives up to
its name on multiple levels especially with the theme of the perfect
match, being well executed by author T. Wayne Bloodworth. He artfully
employs a nicely honed knack for evenly paced, detailed storytelling
mainly when it comes to his ability to portray vivid images, the
medical field and scenes of touching emotion. Additionally, I found
the characters to be well thought out. I particularly enjoyed the
character of Doctor Folsom. He was a sympathetic character whose
emotions were tangibly realistic. I recommend putting this book on
your "to be read" list. It definitely would make a good end of
summer, feel good read.
