Trauma Plan--Book Review

Sidelined by injuries from a vicious assault, chaplain Riley Hale is determined to return to her former duties as an ER nurse. But how can she show she’s competent when the hospital won’t let her attempt even simple tasks? Determined to prove herself, Riley volunteers at a controversial urban free clinic despite her fears about the maverick doctor in charge.

Dr. Jack Travis defends his clinic like he’s commander of the Alamo. He’ll fight the community’s efforts to shut its doors, even if he must use Riley Hale’s influential family name to make it happen.

As Riley strives to regain her skills, Jack finds that she shares his compassion—and stirs his lonely heart. Riley senses that beneath Jack’s rough exterior is a man she can believe in. But when clinic protests escalate and questions surface about his past, Jack goes into battle mode and Riley wonders if it’s dangerous to trust him with her heart.

This book blends action with compassion and real-life situations with humor and an engaging storyline that captivates the reader.   I personally fell in love with the main characters, Dr. Jack Travis and Nurse Riley Hale!  I liked how Candace Calvert brought the town of San Antonio to life during Fiesta, and the way she created scenes in an easy-to-imagine manner showing the reader sights, sounds, smells, and tastes to enhance the connection to the settings is something only a master of the craft of writing could do.  Candace Calvert weaves three story lines (at least!) alongside the main story of Trauma Plan and opens the door for additional stories in her Grace Medical series!

Candace Calvert is a former ER nurse who believes love, laughter and faith are the best medicines. She likens her exciting Mercy Hospital and Grace Medical series to "Grey's Anatomy finds its soul." A native Californian, she is the mother of two and proud grandmother to seven.
