CODE READ! Disaster Status is hot off the press. And once again, Candace Calvert has written a book that should be at the top of every triaged reading list. A sister hospital of Critical Care's Sierra Mercy, Pacific Mercy Hospital, on the northern California coast, is on high alert after a chemical spill sends an onslaught of patients through its doors. The adrenaline rises when ER Charge Nurse Erin Quinn and Fire Captain Scott McKenna's clashing personalities create a different sort of chemical reaction. Will it be strong enough to erode the emotional barriers they've each built around their hearts? While privacy laws prevent me from revealing the outcome, I will say that the prognosis depends on whether they allow the Great Physician to heal their scars. Candace Calvert has once again delivered the perfect prescription for the reader who enjoys a mixture of drama, romance, humor, and a bit of intrigue, along with a bustling medical environment. Her books are infectious - I can hardly wait to be exposed to book three!
I loved ER medical drama on TV, I mean there are only a few shows I really loved and that was one. I pretty much cried and was ready to give away my TV when it ended, in fact I stuck in the garage for 4 months when it ended...so medical drama in books is great if they are well written. I have never worked in a hospital and am more a medical wanna be, but I do have a sister who is an ER nurse...so anyhow, if you are an ER fan as well or a medical wanna be, you will like these books. They have a fire fighter and an a nurse with problems in their past both of them, a troubled janitor that everyone ignores and ends up in the spotlight...on the wrong side of it, and romantic twists of course in the middle of it...you have a plane that crashes causing a huge medical trauma with triage and nurses collapsing before they figure out what it is. This book keeps you on your toes and keeps you reading!!! If you like medical stuff, this is a good one for you!
When I first came across this series, I was excited because I had not read another romance novel based on nursing from a Christian perspective. I have enjoyed both Critical Care and Disaster Status. In my opinion, she is getting better as she goes along. I would definitely recommend reading The Mercy Hospital Series. Have fun!
It's been awhile since I read a nursing romance. This book had it all, the romance, the hospital crises, the handsome firefighter, and the personality clashes. ER nurse Erin Quinn has a relationship with God but like many of us there are areas in which she refuses to allow God to reign. Her area is "forgiveness". The book is well written, fast paced with believable characters and heart-rendering situations. I like that the secondary characters are fleshed out and become part of Erin's story not just secondary characters. Although it is the second in a series it can stand alone without confusing the reader.
