About the book: ER nurse Macy Wynn learned essential, gritty lessons in the California foster care system: land on your feet and trust no one. She’s finally located the fellow foster child she loves like a sister, but the girl’s in deep trouble. Macy’s determined to help, no matter what it takes. Her motto is to “make it happen” in any situation life throws at her—even when she butts heads with an idealistic cop.Deputy Fletcher Holt believes in a higher plan, the fair outcome—and his ability to handle that by himself if necessary. Now he’s been yanked from Houston, his mother is battling cancer, and he’s attracted to a strong-willed nurse who could be the target of a brutal sniper.
My thoughts: By Your Side from The Crisis Team Series written by Candace Calvert involves drama, romance and faith!
Being an RN myself for 30 years, I tend to be more critical of novels
involving medical information. This book is accurate and informative in its medical information, without overwhelming the non-medical reader!
I also enjoyed the story because some of the supporting characters from Calvert's previous book, Life Support, are the main characters in this story. The best part is you can enjoy By Your Side without having read the previous novel, although I think the story is more enjoyable knowing the background in the characters' lives. The main characters in this story line are Justin Holt, a deputy, and Macy Wynn, a victim of crime. Their lives become entangled from one crime scene to another, while the story unfolds.
Law enforcement and Crisis chaplaincy are the main focus, while the emergency room and hospital setting are a small part of this novel. Although the outcome of the story is a little predictable, it keeps your attention and Calvert makes the characters come to life! I have enjoyed reading this book (and "Life Support") and look forward to reading more in this series by Candace Calvert. (guest reviewer, M.Godley)
