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 is book 2 in the Grace Medical Series. In this book, we meet Kate Callison. She is the interim ER director at Grace Medical, attempting to fill the shoes of the former director whom everyone loved, however, she disappeared mysteriously. Kate feels she can't meet anyone's expectations. In the meantime, she is running from her own past, and incidents keep coming up that force her to face them. We also meet Wes Tanner, a man who works for the family business as well as being part of the volunteer search and rescue team in the area. Circumstances bring them together on several occasions, and they find they can't fight their attraction for each other, however, Kate's past continues to haunt her, causing her to fear that a relationship with Wes will never be possible.
I wasn't sure if I would be able to get into this book at first, however, I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself really cheering on Kate's character, hoping that she would find redemption and be able to forgive herself for mistakes made in the past. I also thought the author did a great job regarding the medical part of the story. It was very informative without being over my head.
