The Story:
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.

What I Thought:
I wish there were more medical dramas in the Christian fiction genre, especially if they are as well written and entertaining as Candace Calvert's always are. Once again the lives of ER personnel and the struggles they face not just at work but in their personal lives are brought to life in a way that's just as intriguing as an episode of E.R. or Grey's Anatomy. Instead of Dr. McSnarly (swoon) this time the hero is a hunky Texan (swoon again) engineer and well driller who moonlights as a search and rescue volunteer. Every aspect of this story had me flipping pages like crazy. From wanting to see what happened to "Baby Doe", to wondering whether or not a heart attack patient would survive, to a romantic scene beside the water Rescue Team it was pulse pounding entertainment in every sense. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read what happens next in the Grace Medical series.

~ My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ~

Happy Reading!


  1. Golly - just the word "swoon" and this is sounding right up my alley! ;)

    Though my mother has read this series - and Candace's prior books, I have yet to read it - must remedy that ASAP. Thanks, Renee! Already CANNOT wait.

    1. Hehehe the stories are great but I happen to love the covers that she gets for her books. Do you see this guy?! Yep... definitely swoon! ;-)

    And, Rissi, thank you for the comment. I'd love to have you "scrub in."
