What I’ve been Reading – Life Support by Candace Calvert

About this Book

Nurse Lauren Barclay put her life on hold to keep a watchful eye on her troubled sister. It’s why she’s back in Houston. But that means confronting the brooding physician assistant who caused painful turmoil in her family–and left Lauren with memories her heart can’t forget.

PA and single parent Elijah Landry is no stranger to stormy relationships, including one with his father, who is threatening him with a restraining order. It won’t stop Eli from protecting his disabled brother–or from making peace with Lauren. He wants that and so much more.

But as Lauren and Eli draw closer, a powerful hurricane roars toward Houston. Survival instincts take priority and everything changes. Can hope weather the storm?

My Review

This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed this story. In this story you have romance, a natural disaster,  dysfunctional families, and a blind diabetic dog. All these elements come together to make a great story.

I loved the main characters, Eli and Lauren. Their chemistry as they try to figure out who they are and how to agree to disagree on certain topics. I especially loved watching Eli as a Dad and brother and felt for him in his relationship with his father.

Although, there were several subplots feeding into the main story they fit together with the main story very well. The author did a great job of giving an insight to the complicated aspects of family life, when dealing with a disabled child, now a man. The hardest aspect of the story for me to deal with was how the Lauren’s family dealt with Jessica. I just wanted to shake some sense into them.

The only complaint I have about the story is it felt like a book two and I was missing something, but I don’t think it was. However, this is not going to keep me from reading more books by this author. It was an excellent story!

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.
