This book by Candace Calvert is the second book in the Crisis Team series. Taylor Cabot is an ER nurse and apart of a crisis team. Three years after her husband’s death, she is on her way to completing her “survival list.” In the process of moving on… she is (sort of) dating a handsome plastic surgeon, decides to leave the crisis team, and comes to grips with the fact that her beloved dog is living his last days. Seth Donovan, a crisis team chaplain and Taylor’s friend, comes to town and finds himself falling in love with Taylor. When crisis hits close to home, Taylor has to face unknown truths, confront fears, and let herself grieve in a way she had not done before.
I have not previously read any of this author’s books. I was drawn to the book because of the medical drama theme. I love medical dramas on television and I used to work as a nurse. To be honest though, I had a hard time engaging with this book. I prefer books that hold my attention so much that I do not want to put them down. I also felt that there were far too many character story lines to keep track of. I assume that some of them were in the previous book, so it may have helped to read that one first. However, this was okay as a stand alone book being that it was mostly from Taylor’s perspective. Towards the end, I was able to start engaging more. I like how the author addressed the grieving process. I felt like I was going through it with Taylor. Also, the crisis that occurs at the end of the book was unexpected and left the reader hanging to find out more (which I hope will be revealed in the next book of the series). I do plan to read the previous book and the following book in the future.
