I loved every female character in this book, but I must admit my heart really did fall for Jane, the sweetest character with a lot of self-doubt and worry, I was really rooting for Janey and so the ending (if you’ve read the book) made my heart swell! In the Paediatric Neurology Clinic at Hamad General Hospital, Qatar, 49% of patients referred to pediatric neurology did not show up for their appointments leading to long waiting times for new patients, and a waste of clinic resources. For me, this was a novel about how personal history and relationships are carried with you throughout your life and how they effect not only past but future relationship choices.

I’m not sure she’s achieved that level of characterization (though I liked the heroine of The Roadtrip quite a bit). But later in the book she thinks about how she wants him to get himself together, and that surprised me because it seemed to cast him in the opposite light.

He’s either a heartless bastard or the great guy he mostly appears to be, but how to reconcile the two? Improving the way we contact parents, allowing them to ask for an immediate re-book if they know they can not make the appointment.

This book is pretty comparable to The Switch, but because of the problems I’ve mentioned with the plot, I think I’ll give it a straight B. Patients don't attend appointments for several reasons including; logistical reasons such as transport difficulties or the lack of a suitable carer to bring the child. There are quite a few characters across three cities, and I didn’t feel like I got to sink into their lives completely. I foolishly read The No Showover the course of a couple of weeks, dipping in and out which was my downfall.I’ve been hearing good things about this book, primarily that most of us made the same assumption, and many were pleasantly surprised.

The three women are angry, worried, or unsurprised to be stood up, depending on their personal level of self-esteem and patience. Prediction: Patients from the urgent list are likely to come to appointments as they have been referred recently.

Once they’ve each forgiven him for standing them up, they are all in serious danger of falling in love with a man who may have not just one or two but three women on the go…. I liked all the female protagonists (even though I kind of wanted Jane to get over being a drip and deal with her trauma, whatever it was).

Plan: Offer patients an immediate re-book by asking them whether the appointment time is suitable or not. There were also associated benefits of improving access for urgent patients and a reduction in the overall waiting time. For that reason, I felt like it was a bit of a slow burner to begin with, but I put that down to my erratic reading schedule more than the story itself. She is living a very proscribed life (she wears the same clothes every week, and eats the same breakfast every day) in the belief that she will somehow be “safe. This information is going behind spoiler tags so please note it is a Major Spoiler, but I’m keeping the specifics somewhat vague.

Better communication and appointment flexibility can significantly reduce the no-show rate in outpatient clinics.I actually like plenty of books that aren’t romances (particularly in YA and fantasy, but also other genres sometimes) although but usually I prefer books with romantic elements at least.
