Book Review - Trauma Plan by Candace Calvert

Trauma Plan
by Candace Calvert

Trauma Plan has just the right amount of romance, medical happenings, and mystery. Riley Hale had been an ER nurse, but a tragic assault left her unable to do the physical tasks needed for that job, so for now she was assigned as hospital chaplain. Riley, a woman of great faith, was perfect as chaplain, but she really wanted back in ER. Dr. Jack Travis, ER doctor, and somewhat of a renegade director of a nearby free clinic, entered the picture with an offer she can't refuse. When Riley agreed to volunteer at his clinic to hone her ER skills, a romance began to evolve.

Jack's clinic and its clientele were not a welcome sight in the midst of a well-to-do neighborhood and some people wanted it gone. Jack's past was also called into question, and Riley must decide what to believe about him.

I liked that the story had interesting, very likeable, secondary characters in Vesta, Bandy and Hobo that the reader comes to care about in the same way as Riley and Jack. Each of the characters had experienced a type of trauma in their own lives, and some were now helping others through difficult times. I highly recommend this as a very good read that will leave you wanting to check out Calvert's other series.

This book was kindly provided to me for my review by Tyndale Publishing; however, that in no way influenced the opinions stated above.
