Candace Calvert in her new book, “By Your Side book coverBy Your Side” Book One in the Crisis Team series published by Tyndale House Publishers brings us into the lives of Macy Wynn and Fletcher Holt.

From the Back Cover:  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?

There is nothing that can compare to a good medical suspense novel. And, I do not believe, nobody does medical suspense better than Candace Calvert. There is a sniper on the loose. Just the idea of it makes me want to move to another state until he or she is captured. Now both Macy and Fletcher must work together if they are going to bring down this menace. Both of them have issues that are bigger than they are and is going to require God to heal them if they expect to move forward. This book starts out exciting and then Ms. Calvert just notches up the excitement factor.  “By Your Side” is a thriller with all kinds of danger that is a lot like a roller coaster with dips and turns and drops that you really don’t see coming.  However, it is also a romance that builds as Macy and Fletcher have to learn to trust each other.  Candace Calvert knows how to weave a captivating story with wonderful characters that breathe.  I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
