Rescue Team by Candace Calvert (Review)

  • Paperback: 384 pages

  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers (April 19, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-1414361123

  • About the book:

    Tired of running from her past, nurse Kate Callison intends to become Austin Grace Hospital’s permanent ER director and make Texas her home. Despite staff friction, she’s moving ahead. Then unthinkable tragedy wraps the ER in crime tape, bringing swarms of media, legal chaos—and a search-and-rescue hero who seems determined to meddle in her life.

    For Wes Tanner, nothing beats finding someone who’s lost; he’s known that helpless terror firsthand. So he’ll expand his team’s lifeline of hope: K9 tracking, swift water rescue, even horse-mounted searches. He’s ready for anything—except Austin Grace’s prickly and dismissive ER director.

    As Kate and Wes discover more about each other, new respect becomes something deeper. Kate wonders if her heart might have finally found a home. Then an unsolved missing persons case—and a startling new one—become catalysts that threaten the loss of all she and Wes have found.

    My Review:

    I have read quite a few good books lately and this is one of them. This is the third book in the Grace Medical series and can stand alone. Of course I loved the whole series. Kate's story might be my favorite though. She is such a strong vivid character. Her past tortures her. It inhibits her present life and makes the circumstances at work tougher. She becomes ER director because the last one went missing months ago and no one knows what happened to her. She was loved by all which makes Kate's job harder and people resent her. She meets Wes when his search and rescue work brings him to the ER. They keep meeting up and their romance develops. The plot and characters are well written and interesting. The author's experience in the ER shines through. Highly Recommended especially for fans of medical drama with a faith bent. :)

    Candace Calvert is a former ER nurse who believes love, laughter and faith are the best medicines. Her Mercy Hospital and Grace Medical series offer readers a chance to "scrub in" on the exciting world of emergency medicine—along with a soul-soothing prescription for hope. Wife, mother, and very proud grandmother, she makes her home in northern California.
