Maybe It’s You by Candace Calvert


Maybe It's you

Publisher’s Summary

ER nurse Sloane Ferrell escaped her risky past—new name, zip code, job, and a fresh start. She’s finally safe, if she avoids a paper trail and doesn’t let people get too close. Like the hospital’s too-smooth marketing man with his relentless campaign to plaster one “lucky” employee’s face on freeway billboards.

Micah Prescott’s goal is to improve the Hope hospital image, but his role as a volunteer crisis responder is closer to his heart. The selfless work helps fill a void in his life left by family tragedy. So does a tentative new relationship with the compassionate, beautiful, and elusive Sloane Ferrell.

Then a string of brutal crimes makes headlines, summons responders . . . and exposes disturbing details of Sloane’s past.

Can hope spring from crisis?

My Review

Sloan Ferrell barely manages to stay one step ahead of the mobster monsters chasing her because of her association with her e-fiancé, Paul Stryker. She has succeeded in evading them, and him, and continues to do everything in her power to keep it that way by moving, changing her name and her persona. Being run off a highway and over a cliff tends to get their message through loud and clear.

Maybe It’s You, is the third in the series, Crisis Team by Candace Calvert. Nonetheless, it works well as a stand-alone. You don’t miss anything by not having the back story.

I enjoyed reading the newest book in the series. However, I struggled with some of the imagery due to PTSD. If, like me, this can be an issue for you, be advised there are several extremely intense scenes depicting mob type revenge.

One of the things I enjoyed most about Maybe It’s You, is that I didn’t guess the outcome. I guessed one subtle detail, but not the overall result. I enjoy books like this immensely. I read so many books that accurately guessing the outcome is almost second nature to me. Thank you, Ms. Calvert, for a book so full of twists, turns and shockers that the ending is a complete surprise.

Candace Calvert thrills again with her newest addition to her medical romantic thrillers.

About the Book

Three years after a tragic accident left her a widow, ER nurse Taylor Cabot is determined to move on, checking off one item after another on her survival list. Her relationship with a handsome plastic surgeon even gives her hope for the last point—“fall in love again.” At least until crisis chaplain Seth Donovan steps back into her life, reawakening unanswered questions about her husband’s death.

While in San Diego to train community volunteers, Seth hopes to learn why Taylor is backing away from the crisis team and from their friendship. But nothing prepares him for the feelings that arise when he sees Taylor again . . . and sees her moving on with another man.

When a community crisis hits home and puts lives at risk, emotions run high and buried truths are unearthed. Will hope make the survival list?

My Review

Taylor Cabot’s life spun out of control just three short years ago with the death of her husband. And many questions still weren’t answered.

Feeling the need for more control and wanting to be able to live again, she moved to San Diego and started a new life.

Dr. Rob Halston, whom she had begun dating and is somewhat of a control freak, was helping her to “control” her life, with major changes being made to her schedule, diet, exercise regime and an extensive to-do list.

But . . . God has a way of intervening, and her idyllic, structured and controlled life is abruptly interrupted on a gorgeous summer day.

Can she regain control? Will her questions ever be answered? And what about Seth Donovan, her husband’s former friend and member of the Crisis Team?

Candace Calvert’s medical trauma drama with a splash of romance book, Step by Step is Book 2 of the Crisis Team Series and can be a stand-alone book. The novel is full of optimism and faith in the midst of multiple tragedies, a story you will enjoy and think about for a long time after finishing the last word.
