Editorial Reviews

Review

National Guard Paramedic Tracey Cramer-Kelly is an excellent writer. Well-crafted plot, storyline and character development that is consistent throughout and a very plausible, satisfying and realistic ending to the tale.
--Firehouse Review

I found myself unable to put the book down once I started reading it. I wasn't expecting such an action-packed book, full of vivid imagery, knowledge about rescue maneuvers and extraordinary character development. --Rhode Island Review

A romantic action novel about paramedics, their work, and how this work interweaves with their personal situations...an interesting behind-the-scenes look at a life-style very few people get to experience....
--Helicopter Life Magazine

Learning to love oneself in order to love another is a compelling part of this novel. Acceptance of others and their limitations comes into play as the main characters grapple with deep-seated anger, guilt, and self-doubt. --Long and Short Reviews

Anorexia, abusive boyfriends, Iraq veterans and sick horses all keep the melodrama at a level more intense than the average Himalayan epic... --Gripped: the Climbing Magazine

From the Author

Last Chance Rescue draws extensively from my experience as an Army Reserve paramedic. If you like medical drama, you'll like Last Chance Rescue!

Format: Paperback
Although Last Chance Rescue is set in the current era, it reminds me of historical romance novels. The similarities include story style, romance, compelling action, interesting and complex characters, and immersion in a world that is not familiar.

The book is full of exciting, well-written adventures, and reading it is like experiencing one cliff-hanger after another. This swell of excitement is really just a backdrop for getting to know and like the characters.

The characters include ordinary folks with drug problems, shadowy military pasts, mystical healing abilities, damaged fathers and abusive boyfriends.

These experiences, some familiar, some more far-out, are woven into believable characters. The story is grounded by the main character, Brad. Brad is extremely down-to-earth and easy to relate to.

From Brad's perspective (and the book is mostly narrated through his voice), the story might be simplified to the following: he experiences two major changes in his life (a dramatic career change and then a dramatic injury), during which he tries to relate to and figure out his feelings for a woman friend.

Who doesn't know a guy like that? Brad is so likeable - we really want to see him succeed.

This was the most satisfying romance book that I have in long time. I think the main reason for this was, at least in my opinion, was that the romance was almost a secondary theme in the book.

The main theme of the story was how the characters helped each other grow emotionally. Most of the time neither character would realize the effect they had on one another.

The spiritual connection between the two leads was awesome. As a reader, I hated to see the story end.

I can't wait to see if the other books by Tracey Cramer-Kelly are as captivating as this book.

Happy reading to you all!

Put it off for too long, and it may be too late. "Last Chance Rescue: A Story of Rescue and Romance in the Rocky Mountains" is a novel blending adventure and romance. Brad Sievers is a forest ranger, and Jessie Van Dyke is his good friend. But friendship seems to soon become too weak of a word for it, as a disaster finds Jessie missing and Brad wanting to use the L word. "Last Chance Rescue" is an attractive novel that will be well enjoyed by many a reader.

From the first sentence this book is off and running with a high-flying helicopter rescue that reflects Cramer-Kelly's background as a chopper pilot. Like all good writers she sticks to the mantra "write what you know" and thus the rescue scenes feel so real because you can tell they're written by someone intimately familiar with this territory.

As a guy I loved the action and the authenticity of the story, and the romance between Brad and Jessie is mixed in well so that it doesn't slow down what I love as your typical "guy" reader - a storyline that rockets up and down like a wild helicopter ride and keeps you guessing until the very end.

Great book. Also I have to say something about the cover. The detail and colors are so vivid it feels like you're standing on the edge of the Rockies. I can't help but stare at it. A great way to get you in the right mindset before you dive in. Kudos to whoever did it!
