Waste of time. This book is just a series of interactions Doc Morris has with single women in the town of Prossers Bay. There was absolutely no point or plot to this short story; it was more like the first chapters in each of the women's books. And there is no world building, much less world building that points to a town in New Zealand. I didn't like any of the women featured in the book, so I won't be continuing with the series.
