Macy Wynn learned a lot about life growing up in a foster home, and one of those things was, dont trust anyone! One thing Macy found in foster care was a sister that would always be her sister. The two were separated when their foster mom passed away, so Macy goes on a mission to find her sister and bring her home with her to Sacramento, only to be stopped by a sniper in the street. Police officer Fletcher is trying to do his best to get to the sniper who is causing the traffic jam. Macy and Fletchers lives seem to be thrown together qiute a bit, but they both have the own struggles and demons following the around.
I enjoyed this book so much! I love Fletcher and Macy. Their difficult situations were issues a lot of people face in life. Author Candace Calvert does an amazing job of thaking these situations and weaving them together, creating a beautiful story of love, grace, Faith and forgiveness. And a little action there too! There are a lot if twists and turns in the story that will keep you guessing, but thats what I love about a good story!
By Your Side is a story I highly recommend and one you sure dont want to miss! This book was provided by the publisher, Tyndale House. I was not required to write a review of this book. I chose to write this review, and the opinions are mine alone!

kingsdaughter1611ILAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Medical Drama at it's Finest!October 15, 2016kingsdaughter1611ILAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5By Your Side is a medical thriller penned by Candace Calvert. She is an excellent author who knows how to make the medical terminology and phrases obvious to the layman. And believe me, I may know a couple of the phrases, I have watched some ER shows after all, but many times the books make it confusing and you aren't really sure what the author is talking about. Not so with By Your Side.
The book opens with a bang, or should I say gunfire, and keeps moving quite fast from there. The nurse is Macy, a woman with a troubled childhood, and the hero would be Fletcher, the police officer from Houston who is quite intriguing. He protects Macy after a sniper attacks those stuck on the highway from an accident. But can he continue to protect her from the crazed lunatic firing at those traveling the roads? Or will her past always be between them? Find out for yourself and enjoy a trip through a medical drama that will have your heart beating fast as you turn pages!

nkwbookreviewer5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring Medical Action Suspense RomanceAugust 14, 2016nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"By Your Side" by author Candace Calvert is the first book in her Crisis Team, a Christian fiction series. This paperback book is published by Tyndale and is 429 pages long. The cover shows an ER nurse with an operating room behind her on half of it and a police officer with a crisis scene behind him on the other half. It is an indication that this book will be filled with action, suspense, drama, and danger. It certainly is. The story starts out rolling fast with a sniper and accident on the highway. It keeps the fast pace up throughout most of this book. Every time I thought I would just read to the end of that chapter I found it was too interesting to put down.
The author tells the story of Macy Wynne who is an emergency room nurse and Deputy Fletcher Holt who is a police officer. This couple first meet during the sniper incident. Both characters are well developed, complete with flaws. Just like in the real world. Their relationship is like most - tumultuous. It isn't always smooth sailing which makes it interesting.
The author does a good job introducing characters to us. We have a chance to get to know them and decide to either like them or not. Not just the main characters either, even secondary characters are lovable or contemptible. Fletcher's mother is an interesting one. Her illness is the reason he has moved.
This book has a well thought plot with a fast moving story. There is no chance to be bored. It has a lot of life lessons to contribute. Readers learn the value of faith, family, and friends. The book shows the importance of leaning on God, especially during difficult times. It takes readers through emotional issues we may have gone through or will go through at some point - addiction, mental illness, depression, terminal illness, death of a loved one, trauma, accidents, violence, and more. Throughout all of these tragedies, faith and trust in God is at the forefront.
This medical, suspense, action, inspirational, Christian novel is definitely worth reading. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. A copy of this book was provided by The Book Club Network for my honest review.
Cindy J5 Stars Out Of 5Fabulous beginning to new medical seriesAugust 11, 2016Cindy JQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Candace Calvert begins a new medical romance series, and By Your Side is an excellent first installment. Emergency Room nurse Macy Wynn has learned to be a tough survivor through experiences from her past. She trusts no one except herself and has built a life for herself through hard work and determination. During a traffic accident which resulted in the closing of the highway, she meets Deputy Fletcher Holt, a Houston native temporarily transplanted while his mom battles cancer and his dad completes an out-of-town contract. Fletcher believes God has a plan, but he struggles with who is in control of the final outcome.
As the first book in a series, this book obviously could be read as a stand-alone story although the groundwork was laid for Taylor Cabot and Seth Donovans tale in book two. Both characters were prominent in By Your Side, and portions of the story were from Taylors point of view, but this in no way detracted from Macy and Fletchers story. This book dealt with some tough issues life isnt always fair, individuals cant control everything, and people sometimes let you down when you trust them. Macy recalled lessons learned from a former foster mom about what makes a home and family. She also remembered the trust this mom had in God. Fletcher realized that, no matter how hard he tried, the results were still in Gods hands rather than his.
This book was a page-turner for me, and Im not at all doing it justice with this review. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance or suspense stories. (Although there was one scene where someone attempted to rape a woman, but it was not too detailed and was very brief less than two pages. I would take that into consideration when recommending to younger readers.) To me, the romance was not the main focus of the story. The suspense was almost as prominent as the romance. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and greatly anticipate reading more of Ms. Calverts work.
I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
