      This book didnt even make it to my to be read pile. It came straight from the bubble wrap and into my hot little hands.What a novel! Medical dramas, cant even compare to DISASTER STATUS. I had the distinct feeling of standing in the middle of a trauma ward as everyone rushed around me. You dont have to understand medical terms to know what is going on. But this book wasnt just medical disasters, it was a love story and a story of life outside of trauma that made it jump to life.There was a very real sense of immediacy throughout the entire novel. I felt like I was there and found it nearly impossible to stop reading. Making this probably the fastest book I have ever read, in just under 6 hours.The characters were unique, coming alive on the page. I saw their growth. I cheered and I groaned. There was intrigue and action. Drama and love, but not the sappy inappropriate soap opera kind, the kind that makes you stand up and cheer or curl your toes in anxiety.I can no longer watch medical dramas on TV. Only give me DISASTER STATUS and plenty of time to read!This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to Tyndale publishers for my copy to review.

      This is one of the best books I've read in awhile! So often when I read a book, I find myself frustrated with the lack of depth of the characters. Not so with this book! There was passion in these characters that made me both care about and understand them. Their struggles weren't rushed through or glossed over. The development of relationships felt natural and believable. The medical scenarios were far beyond my understanding, but it made these peoples' lives all the more compelling and realistic. I can't say enough good things about this book. It was intelligently written, it had down-to-earth, likeable characters who grappled with an authentic faith , the story was well-paced, and the storyline was both interesting and engaging. There was actually ROMANCE in this book that was neither saccharine-y-sweet nor overly erotic. Wow! Great book! Can't wait for the next one!

      "Disaster Status" is a suspenseful medical drama that will appeal to both men and women. A hazardous material spill brings together two people whose coping mechanisms--picked up from their parents and grandparents--threaten to destroy any chance of a lasting relationship.While there is a romance (more than one, actually), the author went beyond the "romance formula" to deal with deeper issues.The world-building was excellent. The details about the town and the ER brought the story alive in my imagination without slowing the fast pacing. The tension remained high throughout the story.The likable characters were complex and realistic, and they faced realistic problems. It felt like this story really could have happened. I liked that the main characters were better people for having met the other and their strengths and weaknesses forced the other person to grow.The main characters were Christians who were struggling with their perceptions of God and what God wanted from them.The was no sex. There was a minor amount of "he swore" style bad language. I'd highly recommend this well-written novel. I honestly don't think you'll regret giving "Disaster Status" a try.I received this novel as a review copy from the author.

      This review was written for Disaster Status, Mercy Hospital Series #2.
      Candace Calvert delivers another top-notch drama in the world of Emergency personnel right from her chilling opening scene: Fire Captain Scott McKenna, carrying a child in jerking seizures, bolts through the ER doors of Pacific Mercy Hospital just as farm trucks filled with sick people pull into the parking lot. Immediately the ER doctor and staff are dealing with possible hazardous material contaminating the local water supply because of a plane crash. Into this adrenalin-pumping situation, Candace delivers a conflicted hero -- the fire captain who wants to move away from Pacific Point and tragic memories -- and a spunky red-headed heroine -- the day-shift charge nurse Erin Quinn, whom he won't let past the barricades because she rushed in to help without her badge clipped to her uniform. It's all here: pride and prejudice, action, conflict, authentic medical and firefighting trauma, believable love story that grows slowly as trust develops, humor, flawed characters you want to embrace because they battle the same self-doubts in faith many of us share, and inspiration to hearten your soul and heal your heart. I couldn't put the book down. Candace Calvert has established her niche, and I look forward to her next story in the Mercy Hospital series.
