Review: Maybe It’s You by Candace Calvert

maybe-its-youMaybe It’s You is book three in the Crisis Team series. It can be read as a stand alone novel if you haven’t read the earlier books. The only thing I feel that you will really lose in doing this, is understanding exactly how much Sloane has changed since the previous stories. It is a very drastic change. However, the author does a good job of catching the reader up if they don’t know the things that have happened in the past few years in Sloane’s life.

Sloane was definitely a character that I did not like in the previous books. It was eye opening to see what had occurred in her life to mold her into the person she was. It made her determination to change so much more meaningful and helped met to understand her better.

Micah was a great character. He was kind and honorable, yet struggled with an anger that he really never worked through from a past event. This anger and judgment did cause some problems in the story and it was quite a turning point for him when he realized that he needed to get over the things that were holding him down. I really enjoyed the development of Micah and Sloane’s relationship. It felt very realistic and natural.

The author did a very good job of creating troubling situations not only for the main characters, but also for a group of side characters. She kept me guessing about the way everything would work out and surprised me toward the end of the story with one reveal in particular!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

CandaceCalvert

Former ER nurse, wife, Mom and proud grandmother, Candace Calvert believes that love, laughter, and faith are the best medicines. Her popular medical fiction offers charismatic characters, pulse-pounding drama, romance, humor, suspense–and a prescription for hope. Think, “Grey’s Anatomy finds its soul.” She is . . .

A Northern California native who spent several years in Hill Country Texas–where she learned to check her shoes for scorpions and plucked an armadillo from her swimming pool. Thinks cruising is the best way to travel: honeymooned in Venice, swam with stingrays, rode a camel at the pyramids, and sang (badly) with a Newfoundland country band. She’s passionate about cooking, loves bird watching, gardening, and gets goose bumps when her handsome husband hits the low notes at karaoke. She writes inspirational fiction because . . .

God blessed her with a quirky wit, buoyant optimism, and a contagious sense of fun–but she didn’t come to know him until after the Triple Whammy that turned her life into a bad country song. A painful and unexpected divorce, the Northern California floods of 1997, and (just when she was coping like a champ, no problem) an equestrian accident that left her with fractured ribs, a bleeding lung, broken back, neck fractures and a spinal cord injury. She’ll tell you that God took drastic measures to get her attention.

In the months of rehabilitation, Candace healed in body and spirit. And came to fully understand the difference between being a strong woman and a woman of strength. The difference is faith, and that lesson has been her biggest blessing. Her story, “By Accident,” appears in Chicken Soup for the Nurse’s Soul, and launched her writing career. Now . . .

She is honored to bring readers medical fiction that offers exciting entertainment and a healthy dose of hope.

You can connect with Candace on her website, blog, and on Facebook.
