Book Description

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.

    From Booklist

    Rescue Team, the second in Calvert’s exciting Grace Medical series, follows Californian Kate Callison as she struggles to succeed in her role as ER director for Austin Grace Hospital. Her own past continues to shadow the present, especially as a sequence of high-profile incidents lowers her team’s morale and plunges the hospital into a sea of bad press and impending legal woes. Wes Tanner, every bit the southern gentleman, uses his childhood memories to fuel his ambition to do good as an adult. Whether tasked with a search-and-rescue mission or spending time with his adopted siblings, Wes prides himself on being the good guy. When Kate and Wes are brought together, first in the hospital, and as romantic interest blossoms, each must face the ghosts that haunt them and decide whether it is more important to forgive and move on or to hold on to what has defined them for so long. Calvert’s adventuresome story of romance and drama infuses faith into her characters’ motivations and makes readers eager for more. --Carolyn Richard

    5.0 out of 5 stars Review from a Man's Perspective April 20, 2013
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Medical Suspense EVER! June 6, 2013
    Oh. My. Word. Can Candace Calvert tell a story! Her personal experience in medical care adds great depth to the novel, but it is her faith and her heart that makes "Rescue Team" her best book ever!

    I adore Kate! I just wanted to wrap my arms around her and pray over her and love her back to emotional health. What a wounded soul, and what a great character. Her past defined her present for far too long, and she was in desperate need of a miracle, of healing and of unconditional love.

    Enter Wes Tanner, an amazing search and rescue guy who has a broken past of his own. It is about to collide with Kate's secret, and it's about to get messy. Can Wes hold on to his love for God, for family and for Kate long enough to see them through this valley?

    And Wes's family! Adored Dylan, and his parents were so kind and loving with Kate and her dad. Her dad...he stole my heart. Then there's Lauren, who HAS to get her own story.

    Throw in the mystery of the disappearance of the ER director, and you've got a story to go on the 'keeper' shelf. The book was so good that, midway through, I had to email Candace to tell her how she'd made me laugh and cry and how thrilled I was with the book.

    I received an advance copy via NetGalley from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I'm buying this one as soon as I can get to a bookstore and reading it again. Yes, it is that good. Her best yet, and that is truly saying something.

    "Rescue Team" is highly, highly recommended.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Characters, good story August 1, 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    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!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Rescue Team June 1, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Rescue Team by Candace Calvert is the second book in the Grace Medical series. Nurse Kate Callison, who we met in the first book, has move to Austin to serve as a temporary ER director at Austin Grace Hospital, filling in for the previous director. Kate is struggling. The previous director seems to have been the angel of the department, and Kate feels as if she is in a losing battle if she tries to compete with the memory of the last director.

    Things get worse.

    A terrible tragedy takes place in the ER, and Kate soon finds herself drowning professionally and personally. The event has brought much scrutiny to her ability to run the ER, and it has shaken her to the core. Her mysterious past is revealed, and the reader is able to see why this case is so hard for her.

    Enter Wes Tanner, the hero. Literally. This search-and-rescue volunteer enters at the same time as the tragedy and soon finds himself intrigued with the ER director, much to her dismay. His life has revolves around rescuing those in need ever since he was a young boy, and he can't help but feel as if Kate Callison is in need of some rescuing. Soon, his respect and desire to help her turns into something more, and Kate finds herself starting to think that maybe she can let her walls down.

    However, a startling discovery shakes their already rocky relationship. Wes and Kate both come to question their relationship. Can Kate overcome her past? Will Wes be able to?

    The Good:
    This book is well-written. I liked how each book in the series has a different hero and heroine. You don't have to read the books in succession and can pick up anywhere. Even though the books can be standalone, the main character of the next book is introduced in the current book.
