Rescue Team by Candace Calvert

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 Thoughts:

Oh.  My.  Word.  Can Candace Calvert tell a story!  Her personal experience in medical care adds great depth to the novel, but it is her faith and her heart that makes "Rescue Team" her best book ever!

I adore Kate!  I just wanted to wrap my arms around her and pray over her and love her back to emotional health.  What a wounded soul, and what a great character.  Her past defined her present for far too long, and she was in desperate need of a miracle, of healing and of unconditional love.

Enter Wes Tanner, an amazing search and rescue guy who has a broken past of his own.  It is about to collide with Kate's secret, and it's about to get messy.  Can Wes hold on to his love for God, for family and for Kate long enough to see them through this valley?

And Wes's family!  Adored Dylan, and his parents were so kind and loving with Kate and her dad.  Her dad...he stole my heart.  Then there's Lauren, who HAS to get her own story.

Throw in the mystery of the disappearance of the ER director, and you've got a story to go on the 'keeper' shelf.  The book was so good that, midway through, I had to email Candace to tell her how she'd made me laugh and cry and how thrilled I was with the book.

I received an advance copy via NetGalley from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest review.  I'm buying this one as soon as I can get to a bookstore and reading it again.  Yes, it is that good.  Her best yet, and that is truly saying something.

"Rescue Team" is highly, highly recommended.

Happy Reading!
