Maybe It's You by Candace Calvert (Review)

  • Series: Crisis Team
  • Paperback: 448 pages
  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (February 3, 2017)
  • Language: English

  • ER nurse Sloane Ferrell escaped her risky past―new name, zip code, job, and a fresh start. She’s finally safe, if she avoids a paper trail and doesn’t let people get too close. Like the hospital’s too-smooth marketing man with his relentless campaign to plaster one “lucky” employee’s face on freeway billboards.

    Micah Prescott’s goal is to improve the Hope hospital image, but his role as a volunteer crisis responder is closer to his heart. The selfless work helps fill a void in his life left by family tragedy. So does a tentative new relationship with the compassionate, beautiful, and elusive Sloane Ferrell.

    Then a string of brutal crimes makes headlines, summons responders . . . and exposes disturbing details of Sloane’s past.

    Can hope spring from crisis?

    My Review:

    I loved this book. I have been waiting for Sloan's book throughout the series. This is book three in the Crisis Team series. I recommend reading them in order because Sloan is featured in the previous book. Sloan is a good girl in this book but not in the last. She has worked hard to overcome her drinking and attends AA meetings after a bad car accident that injured a friend and co worker. She moved to a whole  new city for a fresh start including a name change. She is also in hiding because of her ex's issues and the people hunting him. She is doing good until she snags the attention of Micah Prescott. He is the hospital's assistant director of public relations. He wants her to be part of the public image for the hospital. She is not going for it. They form an unlikely friendship that grows into more. There are complications and twists. The characters and plot are well developed, unique, and interesting. This is my favorite of the series. Recommended.

    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.
