Rescue Team by Candace Calvert
Rescue Team (Grace Medical)
Tired of running from her past, nurse Kate Callison intends to become Austin Grace Hospital's permanent ER director and make Texas her home. Despite staff friction, she's moving ahead. Then unthinkable tragedy wraps the ER in crime tape, bringing swarms of media, legal chaos--and a search-and-rescue hero who seems determined to meddle in her life. For Wes Tanner, nothing beats finding someone who's lost; he's known that helpless terror firsthand. So he'll expand his team's lifeline of hope: K9 tracking, swift water rescue, even horse-mounted searches. He's ready for anything--except Austin Grace's prickly and dismissive ER director. As Kate and Wes discover more about each other, new respect becomes something deeper. Kate wonders if her heart might have finally found a home. Then an unsolved missing persons case--and a startling new one--become catalysts that threaten the loss of all she and Wes have found.
Rescue Team was an alright book. Kate is still trying to deal with giving up her child many years ago. She keeps moving around trying to out run what she did. She hasn't talked to her dad in as many years and she doesn't really let people in.
Wes is an all around good guy. He is heavily involved in search and rescue since he was abandoned in the woods as a child. He is very personally involved with finding people and he still has issues in regards to his mom to deal with.
Besides these two points of view we also get Matt, Kate's dad, Judith, the volunteer at the ER, and Lauren, Kate's friend who also works in the ER. I don't really know why we had all of these points of view. I guess I can see Matt so we can see how he is trying to fix his relationship with Kate. but Lauren and Judith were necessary. I didn't really like those sections and just skimmed them. Judith was just adding some drama, and Lauren I wasn't really sure why she was included. Maybe she will be the focus of the next book?
Kate and Wes' sections were entertaining. They were really sweet together and seemed to really care about each other. They both had issues they needed to deal with, and that did get a little tedious how they were said again and again. It did repeat a bit, but it wasn't too bad. It is a christian book, but I didn't find that too intrusive either. Wes is very religious, as is everyone else, but Kate has a crisis of faith that she needs to figure out. They do talk about God and such quite a bit, but somehow it was not over the top of too much for me.
