Book Review: Rescue Team (Grace Medical Series)

About the Book

Rescue TeamTired 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 Review

I love that the story centers on grace and the plan of God through it. These two reasons were a great booster in reading this story, and I longed to see how it would all end.

The romance between Wes and Kate is not explosive or one of fireworks. It was one nurtured by two mature adults who decided to take a chance because they enjoyed each other’s company and planned to see how things would go from there. Aside from the issues of their past, they had no complications in their relationship. Their conversations were easy, enjoyable and fun. And I loved that about them. Certainly put a smile on my face.

This story had a good number of characters but Candace handled their roles well. All had something important to add to the overall morale of the story—I praise Candace skill in that. The story took me a while to get into, but once I did, I started to enjoy it, although the personalities of the characters were not as well developed as I would have preferred. I didn’t connect with the characters as I would have loved to.

Overall, it was a good read. Although it wasn’t my favorite, it’s one of those books I’m really glad I read. Really love the theme.

*Although I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. Many thanks to Tyndale Publishing House and NetGally for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.*

About the Author

Candace CalvertOften 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 and Grace Medical) 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 seven, Candace is a passionate “foodie,” equally at home with a whisk in her hand as she is penning stories.
