Maybe It's You

     BOOK REVIEW:   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:   This is the first of Candace Calvert's books that I have read. I have heard good things about her, and would have to agree that she writes some good books.
     In MAYBE IT'S YOU, Sloane and Micah are bumping into each other through their work, and a few not-quite-so-work-related incidents, such as a young girl that Sloane tries to help and a friend of Micah's who is looking for a front-page story.  As time goes by, they each struggle with painful things from their past that start coming out.
     I liked how Candace constructed Sloane's character--she is very capable and good at her job, and has a heart of gold as well, which is perfect for her job. And Micah's character was quite good as well. He is in the marketing business, but puts people above news. Not to mention he volunteers on the crisis team--not at all an easy task.
     She also included a good "Christian" vein, for lack of better description.

           I received this book from TYNDALE PUBLISHERS in exchange for my honest review.
