Life Support by Candace Calvert

About the Book:

Nurse Lauren Barclay put her life on hold to keep a watchful eye on her troubled sister. It’s why she’s back in Houston. But that means confronting the brooding physician assistant who caused painful turmoil in her family—and left Lauren with memories her heart can’t forget.

PA and single parent Elijah Landry is no stranger to stormy relationships, including one with his father, who is threatening him with a restraining order. It won’t stop Eli from protecting his disabled brother—or from making peace with Lauren. He wants that and so much more.

But as Lauren and Eli draw closer, a powerful hurricane roars toward Houston. Survival instincts take priority and everything changes. Can hope weather the storm?

My Thoughts:

Lauren has a tender heart, and Elijah has a lot to learn about forgiveness.  A storm is coming in more ways than one, so batten down the hatches for one of this summer's best novels!

Candace always crafts a winning story, but this one is rich with breath-taking action and true-to-life family situations that will have tears streaming.  Never fear, she always sprinkles just the right amount of humor and witty writing she's known for.

Many authors have what are known as tag-lines, giving the reader a clue into what kind of fiction comes from a particular author's imagination.  I'd have no problem tagging Candace as "Pulse-Racing Fiction", or even  "Adrenaline Rush Romance".  Both perfectly describe her stories.

Fans of medical dramas will be thrilled with "Life Support", and find writing that is so rich and authentic and character driven.  Forget the 'who's in the supply closet with whom' of today's fodder.  This writing has substance and heart that will have you searching for another book by Candace.

My thanks to my friends at Tyndale Publishing for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  Enjoy "Life Support", then go out and get the rest of Candace Calvert's novels.  You'll be glad you did.

Happy Reading!
