Rescue Team (Grace Medical Series #2) by Candace Calvert

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.

Great story! Flawed people, mistakes made, poor choices, but hope for all involved. Kept my attention and emotions engaged.

My heart grieved for Kate Callison as I learned about her past. This book also opened my eyes to the difficulties in running a good ER - the pressure from the hospital management, the criticism from the patients waiting too long and the need to care for all patients well with reduced staffing. I also enjoyed learning more about search and rescue teams. This book also explains the safe haven law, where mothers can give up an unwanted newborn safely, legally, and anonymously.

Medical Thriller This was the first book I read by Candace Calvert and I can't wait to read more written by her. This story follows Kate Callison who has stepped into the position of ER director and Wes Tanner a local who is active with the area search & rescue team. They have to deal with some heartbreaking situations both in the ER and search & rescue that force them to confront their pasts before they can begin to move forward and lead healthy fulfilling lives.

Ok,so I will admit that I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  Of course, I will also admit that I've done that  to all of the books by Candace Calvert.  So please, don't take my "Man Card" away just yet. Kate Callison has spent her life running, now all she wants to do is take over as permanent ER  Director as Austin Grace Hospital.  The hospital is under a PR nightmare with the recent  disappearance of their ER Director, a couple of deaths attributed to long wait times and an  anonymous blogger keeping all of this fresh in the media.  Wes Tanner runs a local search and rescue team on the side.  A couple of rescues brings him into contact with Kate and feelings  between them begin to grow.  Kate isn't sure she wants to open up to Wes with all her baggage,  but her feelings keep getting in the way.  Now there's a missing baby and everyone is on the lookout.  Kate runs away to clear her head when things with Wes take a wrong turn.  What is so bad in her  past that she can't overcome?  Will Wes let her run without chasing?  Is the baby ever found?  Yes, you're right, GO BUY THE BOOK! Is this a "guy's book"?  I will be honest and say that this is not your regular guy's book.  The theme  is romance, redemption and a lot of talk about feelings.  I will also say, though, that I enjoyed this  book.  The character of Wes has such a strong faith and belief system, but even he has an "AHA!"  moment in the book that most men need to read about so that they can get their own "AHA!" moment.

It is rare to find a book that is both clean and interesting with a romantic twist. This book delivers. There's an interesting plot, great back story, and a well written set of characters. A great read.

Kate Callison is on the run - essentially from herself.  Currently she is serving as the Interim Emergency Department Director for Austin Grace ER, but feels burdened to live up to the standards her predecessor, Sunni Sprague, set.  Sunni was beloved by all but disappeared and is suspected to be a victim of foul play. Kate has her own personal history to deal with and a number of situations, both personal and professional, seem to exacerbate her stress.  Wes Tanner, an engineer/search-and-rescue specialist wants to break through Kate's tough exterior, but her secret just may be the one factor he can't handle.  Will forgiveness be possible? I've enjoyed all of Candace Calvert's books and this one is no exception.  I especially enjoy how they can be read independently of one another, but if you read them in order there are little "nods" to the other books or characters in them.  Read them and enjoy!

This book was great! I could hardly put it down. Rescue Team showed the power of love and forgiveness, and how God's grace can reach anyone...even those who are running away.

Rescue Team is about all kinds of “rescue” and all kinds of “lost”. Beneath the professional facades of the EMTs and the harried ER personnel are human beings with problems, worries, and hurt. They suffer from the traumas they see every day in the controlled-chaos of their work, especially any situations with bad outcomes involving children. Lauren offers prayer fellowship and peer counseling, but she is privately concerned about her mentally ill sister. Kate refuses to acknowledge her need for any help and hides behind a prickly exterior her guilt-ridden, grieving soul--sure that she is beyond any hope of redemption. Wes is haunted by childhood pain but finds satisfaction in his Search and Rescue team, his loving, supportive family, and his faith in God. Judith, the dedicated, model volunteer and Angie, the triage nurse, both hide their own desperate concerns. Yet they all do their best to put their troubled personal lives on hold to serve and to help the sick and the lost. The book provides us with characters we care about, and the storyline has plenty of action between missing nurses, abandoned babies, and obnoxious lawyers. There is a great deal of hurt and pain in their stories, but the ending is triumphant, beautiful and immensely satisfying.

Kate is an ER director who is running from her past. Wes is part of a search and rescue team. They meet in the hospital one day and then tragedy strikes. I thought this book was very good. Kate and Wes seem like opposites in the beginning, especially in their views of God and family, but they eventually learn to get along. The story is decently paced with ER and rescue dramas, and a little romance added for good measure.

I thought this was an interesting, well-thought out book. Usually I don't like it when books get too many story lines going, because it seems like some story lines don't get fully developed. However, the author does a really good job of touching on all the different characters and their lives without detracting from the main story or short-changing the peripheral stories. The message is a good one throughout the book, forgiveness is a difficult thing to offer and sometimes even harder to accept. I had not read the other books in this series, but I will be sure to read them in the future and then reread this one. Overall, an interesting book that I would recommend!

I have read quite a few books lately and this is one of them. This is the third book in the Grace Medical series. Kate is a strong character and her past continues to haunt her. She becomes the ER director at Austin Grace hospital because the previous director disappeared. Fellow employees start to resent Kate because they all loved the previous director. She meets this incredible man, Wes when his search and rescue work bring him to the ER. The author did an incredible job with the characters and the plot. This is a must read!

Candace Calvert is one talented lady! I always look forward to reading her latest book, Rescue Team, and somehow they keep getting better and better! The intensity of working in an emergency room lends itself to a fast-paced book with lots of drama (and trauma!). That in and of itself tends to get me caught up in the story. But with characters like Kate and Wes, I couldn’t help but get hooked early on. Plus, Candace’s experience as a nurse is a huge asset to each of her books. There’s such realism in each encounter with ER patients. I think the best thing about the characters in this book is that they’re great people … people you want to be friends with. BUT they’ve got plenty of flaws as well. (I hate “perfect” characters!) In this case, Wes and Kate each have issues from their past that are causing them to struggle in their current situations. It makes for a great friendship between them … if not difficult at times. I also loved the family aspect of this book. Wes’s family plays a significant role in his life and it shines throughout the story. At times reminiscent of a cleaner version of favorite medical dramas like ER and Grey’s Anatomy, Rescue Team is a winner! [5 stars] I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for my fair and honest review.

I had the privilege of reading Rescue Team, the second book in the Grace Medical series, before it has officially been released. I love the style Candace Calvert uses to write all of her books. I have to say, Rescue Team is by far my favorite. Her characters are so believable and I was immediately drawn into the story which had multiple layers, keeping me turning the pages even when I should have been getting others things done. I love how Ms. Calvert weaves spiritual truths into her stories and this one was no exception. The story of grace, something God is teaching me about presently in my own life, is so timely for our society right now. She talked about the mistakes people make, not understandable by human standards, but all covered by God’s grace. One of the best aspects of her writing is how she effortlessly uses multiple examples of how to extend grace to yourself for decisions you made that weren’t the wisest as well as how to extend grace to others who may have taken an action in the name of love or trying to protect another but had consequences not foreshadowed. Ms. Calvert has a way of not only bringing the hero and heroin to life, but creating unforgettable secondary characters in her books as well. These were people I couldn’t stop thinking about, even after the book was closed and I was reading another story. Without giving away anything (I hate spoilers), I love how throughout Rescue Team she subtly sets us up to already love the heroine for the final book in the Grace Medical series. I can’t wait to read the next book and continue the journey; although, I wish there was a fourth and fifth and a… Everyone I have recommended Ms. Calvert’s books to so far have fallen in love with her writing style and storylines within the first chapter. Just try for yourself and see if you feel the same way!

I enjoyed the second book in the Grace Medical Series. The plot line is very good and I like that the author tackles a relevant-to-our-times subject—biological mothers abandoning their children. The story is realistic and emotionally evocative. As a reader, I felt very much drawn into the story. I love the setting and how real it feels due to the author’s obvious familiarity with Austin, Texas. I was able to feel as if I were right there in the city. There is a wonderful cast of characters, which add great richness to the story, also. The faith aspect is prominent in the lives of some characters, and it is gratifying to see how God helps them to come to terms with past mistakes. Redemption is a major theme, as well as, forgiving others and forgiving oneself. Wes is an appealing hero with a huge heart—the kind of hero we all love. Kate, on the other hand, is not so likeable initially, but that is all part of the story. You might remember her from the first Grace Medical book, but no problem, if you didn’t read the first book. If you like a sweet romance, as part of a story, this is a good one. I recommend this medical drama to all who enjoy an all-around good story.

True to life situations, believable characters and a great love story. The author develops the characters both the major and minor ones which gives a greater depth to the story . And one of my favorite traits in this author- underlying biblical principles .
