By Your Side: My Review

About the Book:
ER nurse Macy Wynn learned essential, gritty lessons in the California foster care system: land on your feet and trust no one. Sehe’s finally located the fellow foster child she loves like a sister, but the girl’s in deep trouble. Macy’s determined to help, no matter what it takes. Her motto is to “make it happen” in any situation life throws at her—even when she butts heads with an idealistic cop.

Deputy Fletcher Holt believes in a higher plan, the fair outcome—and his ability to handle that by himself if necessary. Now he’s been yanked from Houston, his mother is battling cancer, and he’s attracted to a strong-willed nurse who could be the target of a brutal sniper.

When everything goes wrong, where do they put their trust?

My Comments:
I really enjoyed the contrasting personalities of the main characters in this book.  Macy counts on herself only; Fletcher knows that he is loved and that makes a difference in his life.  While this is a Christian romance, for the most part it means it is a clean romance.  It is full of hospital action and full of scenes between the two leads.  I've said before that Christian romance authors can't send their characters to bed to advance the relationship; they actually have to have them talk to each other and do things together.  Calvert does as good a job as any author at writing authentic romance with a Christian background.  Thanks to the publisher for making a review copy available via Edelweiss. Grade:  B+
