By Your Side by Candace Calvert

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.

When everything goes wrong, where do they put their trust?

My Thoughts:

Forget Shonda Rimes...Candace writes medical hope opera, and no one does it better...

"By Your Side" kicks off with a huge bang and the tension is high.  A sniper is on the loose, and no one knows when he or she will strike next.  The terror is palpable, and you'll find yourself sucked into the pages of the story within the first chapter.

Macy is a superb heroine: just flawed enough to make her easy to relate to, but with a strength that you can incorporate into your own life when troubles and trials come your way.  Well, at least by the end of the book, anyway!

I adore Fletcher, from his unique name to his love for family and his dedication to his job.  For Fletcher, his work as a deputy is more of a calling, and he's the one you want on your team.  My thanks to my friends at Tyndale Publishing and to Candace for my advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

All of Candace's books are excellent and I highly recommend them all, but especially "By Your Side".  Treat yourself to a good book (or two or three) as you ring in the new year!

Happy Reading!
