Step by Step by Candace Calvert (Review)



  • Series: Crisis Team
  • Paperback: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (February 1, 2016)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1414390345

  • Three years after a tragic accident left her a widow, ER nurse Taylor Cabot is determined to move on, checking off one item after another on her survival list. Her relationship with a handsome plastic surgeon even gives her hope for the last point―“fall in love again.” At least until crisis chaplain Seth Donovan steps back into her life, reawakening unanswered questions about her husband’s death.

    While in San Diego to train community volunteers, Seth hopes to learn why Taylor is backing away from the crisis team and from their friendship. But nothing prepares him for the feelings that arise when he sees Taylor again . . . and sees her moving on with another man.

    When a community crisis hits home and puts lives at risk, emotions run high and buried truths are unearthed. Will hope make the survival list?

    My Review:

    This was an okay medical drama book. I have enjoyed reading all of this author's books. Step by Step is book two in the Crisis Team series. The main focus of this story is Taylor and Seth. I did not connect to Taylor like I would have liked. The story did not read as well as the author's other books.There is a subplot with her co worker Sloane who will be the focus of the next book in the series. At times it felt like it took away from the main plot. I wanted to be reading it instead of the current book.The romance between Taylor and Seth did not seem developed and natural. The ending fit the book. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.


    Often called the author of "medical hope opera," Candace Calvert is an ER nurse who landed on the other side of the stethoscope after the equestrian accident that broke her neck and convinced her love, laughter--and faith--are the very best medicines of all.

    Her popular medical drama series (Mercy Hospital, Grace Medical and Crisis Team) offer readers a chance to "scrub in" on the exciting world of emergency medicine, along with charismatic characters, pulse-pounding action, tender romance, humor, suspense--and an encouraging prescription for hope. Think "Grey's Anatomy finds its soul"!

    A native northern Californian, mother of two and proud grandmother to eight, Candace is a passionate "foodie," equally at home with a whisk in her hand as she is penning stories.
