Review of "Step by Step" by Candace Calvert

The second book in Candace Calvert's Crisis Team series, this installment focuses on ER nurse Taylor Cabot, who believes she is in the final stages of recovery after the tragic death of her husband, Greg. Taylor has moved to San Diego and is systematically checking points off her personal Survival List. Crisis chaplain Seth Donovan is in town for professional reasons, and the more he sees Taylor the more he realizes the depth of his feelings - but he is afraid it's too late. He is also processing his next steps in life, and although he continues to be there for her, it is starting to cost him a great deal emotionally.

I enjoyed this story, and appreciated the author's authority on 'medical speak' and hospital procedures - they provide a great foundation, but she did not get SO technical that those of us not in that vocation got lost. This book was also an excellent set up for the next book featuring Sloane Wilder. A sneak preview chapter is included at the end. Although Step by Step can be read as a stand alone, you would likely get much more out of it if you read the first one, By Your Side.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
