Working two jobs, going to graduate school... Karen Drew knew it wasn't the best time to visit her elderly friend. And with a burning fever and a brokendown car, she shuddered to think what could have happened if Brice Carlin hadn't pulled her from the drifts and taken her to his home. As a doctor, his healing instincts took over. But being snowbound with the man who once tried to have her put in jail was dangerous territory.

Sometimes fate decides to offer the chance to heal, to forgive and to understand that things happen for a reason -- and love is the best one of all.

T.L.C. is the 14th stand-alone romance novel by American author, Barbara Delinsky. Even though Karen Drew is not well (a bad cold) she makes her trek to visit Rowena Carlin at the nursing home. Initially, a sense of duty sent here there: it was her car that had hit Rowena when she was cycling on an unlit road. But since then she had come to enjoy chatting with this sweet eighty-one year old lady. She just made sure she avoided Rowena’s nasty grandson, paediatrician Dr Brice Carlin.
But now, when she needed to get home to her job, and studying for her mid-term exams, her ageing car wouldn’t start, and the snow began to fall in earnest. And when she fainted in the snow, it was just her luck that Brice picked her up. But driving her to his house to recover definitely did not meet with her approval, and she let him know vociferously. To no avail. Brice seemed determined to take care of her. In close quarters, something that neither of them expected developed.
A fairly predictable romance that is quite dated, somewhat slow-moving and a bit long. Delinsky’s later novels are better.
