Extra, Extra! Review and GIVEAWAY for Candace Calvert's Rescue Team


If you’ve ever read a Candace Calvert novel you know that there is just something insatiable about them. With a supporting cast of characters that are always quirky and fun, to heroes that I would challenge any living-breathing female to deny to love, all wrapped up in gripping stores that will keep you glued to the pages late into the night.

As I have come to expect from one of my favorite authors, Calvert dishes up a Texas-styled medical drama in Rescue Team that puts Grey’s and ER to shame.

Jaded Kate Callison, interim ER director at Grace Medical, is running from her past and desperately seeking a place to belong. She might come off a little stiff at first but Kate’s journey of redemption will have you in tears.

And then there’s Wes Tanner. Insert swoon. Selfless and tender. Macho and funny. This guy is the hero you want fighting through the woods to rescue you. The guy you want to dance with you under the stars. He’s almost too good to be true, despite the wounds that keep him from being truly free of the past. And if I can picture him with that twinge of a southern accent I just melt into a happy little puddle.

What I love most about Candace Calvert, aside from her obvious talent for weaving descriptions, points of views, and storylines with a seamless and effortless elegance, is that she not afraid to tackle tough issues. Rescue Team will challenge your view of forgiveness, inspire you with the astounding truth about grace, and literally entertain your socks off!

Don’t miss out on this irresistible read by real-life trauma nurse Candace Calvert. And if you haven’t read book one Trauma Plan drop what you are doing and run to your nearest bookstore! It’s my favorite! Though, I suppose, since the hero looks almost exactly like my husband I might be a teensy bit partial!


Well, what do you think? If you're not sold read the book. :)


I can not wait for the next installment in this series. Fair warning: If you pick up a Candace Calvert novel prepare to get hooked!

YOUR TURN: Since there are so many good looking books hitting the shelves, what's on top of your to be read pile? 

Maybe it should be Rescue Team!

Leave a comment AND your email address before 12 P.M, CST on Friday May 3rd and you could win a copy of this fabulous read!

  1. I just bought Rescue Team for my shelves last weekend, but I have about three review books to go before I hit that one. Candace ALWAYS keeps me on the edge of my seat. :D

  2. I'm so excited for this one! I've read all of her books and they just get better and better! This is definitely on the top of my TBR list....but the first book I'm planning on devouring once the semester ends is definitely Julie Lessman's Love at Any Cost!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. This is such a delightful review, Amy, and (blush) thank you so much. I'm still pretty boggled at how much your hubby looks my Dr. Jack in Trauma Plan, or vice versa.
    Casey: I'm always eager to hear your take on stories!
    Emily, Amy, "Sweetpea"--great to "see" you here. Thank you for stopping by to leave a comment.

    1. Candace, I thought there was a similarity when I picked up the book... Actually when my two year old picked it up and said, "Wook, mommy, it's daddy!" :) But on the page is where his face really matches up. I'll say it again, girl... you've got good taste in heroes!

      Thank you so much for visiting my little blog today! So happy to help promote your work!

  8. I have one of Candace's books on my Kindle and need to read it! I haven't read a lot of medical drama, but I like suspense novels so I'm sure I'll love it!

    Next up on my TBR piles, though: Shattered by Dani Pettrey and I'm currently reading Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz. I know, both of these books have been out awhile. I'm still catching up!!
