Disaster Status: A Book Review

Disaster Status (Mercy Hospital, Book 2)  Since I enjoyed Candance Calverts's Critical Care (Mercy Hospital, Book 1) so much (my review), I jumped at the chance to read book 2 in the series.  Disaster Status (Mercy Hospital, Book 2) is about  Erin Quinn and Scott McKenna.  They meet when he is trying to keep her out of the ER during an emergency.  She had been called in on her day off and had forgotten her ID.  Both Erin and Scott have been hurt recently; both are afraid to let go of the hurt to love again, but....

I really liked the book.  Unlike some Christian romance, this is far more about romance than about Christianity.  The characters seem real, not like some paragons of virtue.  It is a clean romance (and sometimes those can hotter than those that don't leave anything to the imagination, since love and attraction can't be shown by sending the characters to bed).  The topic of PTSD is addressed, and forgiveness of self and others is a major theme.  While Christian romance, it is one that any romance reader could enjoy, unless vivid bedroom scenes are necessary for you to enjoy a romance.

This book will be toured by First Wildcard on April 6.  Check back then to read the first chapter.

Grade:  B+
