By Your Side – Candance Calvert

About this Book

ER nurse Macy Wynn learned essential, gritty lessons in the California foster care system: land on your feet and trust no one. She’s finally located the fellow foster child she loves like a sister, but the girl’s in deep trouble. Macy’s determined to help, no matter what it takes. Her motto is to “make it happen” in any situation life throws at her—even when she butts heads with an idealistic cop.

Deputy Fletcher Holt believes in a higher plan, the fair outcome—and his ability to handle that by himself if necessary. Now he’s been yanked from Houston, his mother is battling cancer, and he’s attracted to a strong-willed nurse who could be the target of a brutal sniper.

When everything goes wrong, where do they put their trust?

My Review

For me this was only an OK book, which was a surprise since I normally enjoy stories by this author. Although the characters were good and the overall story was good, it never sucked me.

The characters were good especially Fletcher Holt. Fletcher was a strong man of character yet he wasn’t perfect He struggled with faith and understanding why bad things happen to good people. I also liked Macy and did feel bad for her life circumstances.

The story was good but I think my problem was there were too many subplots. There also didn’t feel like there was complete resolution on all of them. The author may plan to resolve some of the other plots in future books.

Although this wasn’t my favorite book by this author I would definitely read future books. This particular story just wasn’t good for me.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
