Review: Maybe It’s You by Candace Calvert

About this Book

ER nurse Sloane Ferrell escaped her risky past―new name, zip code, job, and a fresh start. She’s finally safe, if she avoids a paper trail and doesn’t let people get too close. Like the hospital’s too-smooth marketing man with his relentless campaign to plaster one “lucky” employee’s face on freeway billboards.

Micah Prescott’s goal is to improve the Hope hospital image, but his role as a volunteer crisis responder is closer to his heart. The selfless work helps fill a void in his life left by family tragedy. So does a tentative new relationship with the compassionate, beautiful, and elusive Sloane Ferrell.

Then a string of brutal crimes makes headlines, summons responders . . . and exposes disturbing details of Sloane’s past.

Can hope spring from crisis?

My Review

I considered the first two books in this series really good. But this book, was GREAT! We met Sloane in book one and it was very easy to dislike her. Actually I pretty much hated her. But by the end of book two I was hoping that the author would give us Sloane’s story. She did and it is amazing.

Watching the transformation of Sloane was special. In this book we got to see why she was the way she was. The author did a great job of leading me to the point of feeling sorry for Sloane and what she went through. Once again Calvert gives us a great leading man in Micah. I think most everyone would identify with one or both of these characters.

The story itself was also very good. I felt like it was more intense than the previous books of this series.  There was action as well as touching moments between Sloane and the other characters. I cheered for her when she put the one nurse in his place for his treatment of the homeless man.

Definitely a 4 star book!

I would recommend it to any Candace Calvert fan. If you’ve never read Calvert but like Richard Mabry or Harry Kraus you’ll like this book. If you like a good suspense novel this is a good choice.

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.
