Title: Dr. Trouble
Xandria Trebelin, MD, is a highly trained, highly skilled Physician, certified for all known species, Alien and Human.
Xandria has completed all her years of training with excellence, expecting to be hired by the most prestigious hospitals on the close-by worlds. However, she has a problem.
No one will hire her.
She has passed every test, saved uncountable lives, found solutions for the oddest medical problems, earning her a nickname, Dr. Trouble. As in everyone considers her a bad luck charm and doesn’t want to work with her because she seems to attract the most bizarre medical problems ever known.
Xandria jumps at the obscure chance of a job on a planet far, far away where perhaps they don’t know her propensity for trouble. The problem is, on her way to that planet, she runs into an unknown species—literally—and finds she has a bigger problem than not having a job. She now faces the possibility she may not be able to practice medicine ever again.
Can she overcome her new difficulties and be able to do again what she loves the most, saving lives?

–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
Your book description should primarily cover plot points that happen during the book. Pre-book details should only be included to: 1) establish character. 2) set the stage for the action to come.
