CRITICAL CARE by Candace Calvert

This was a book that was a fast paced story, with a main character that I just loved, Dr. Logan Caldwell! Nurse Claire Avery finds herself in the ER at Sierra Mercy Hospital, which is the last place she wants to be as she is beginning her new position as part of the nursing education. She has moved here to escape the trauma of watching her brother die in the ER on her shift. And now she is summoned to help out in an emergency. This is when she encounters Logan "McSnarly", the doctor in charge of the ER (and a person who expects almost perfection in those he works with). They don't exactly hit it off at the beginning. But they both are good for each other and I just loved watching their feelings for each other grow. They both had alot of issues to deal with in their lives. There were alot of other characters in this story that I enjoyed reading about and look forward to hopefully reading more of nurse Erin in book 2. The author did an excellent job of making you feel like you were right there in the ER as things were happening, and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style. Can't wait to start reading book 2 in this series.

Judy, thank you so much for this thoughtful and enthusiastic review of my debut medical drama. An honor to have you "scrub in" with "McSnarly" and the Mercy team--yes, Disaster Status continues with nurse Erin Quinn's story. And wait til you meet hero fire captain Scott McKenna. ;-)

Again, I appreciate your time and encouragement.
