Trauma Plan (Grace Medical) Reviews
Trauma Plan by Candace Calvert was an interesting and revealing novel about life working both in an emergency room and in a small clinic. As a person who is interested in going into the medical novel, I found this novel to be very illuminating and exciting. The plot line was filled with a good mixture of mystery, suspense, medical emergencies, and even a little romance. I was drawn into the many questions that surrounded Jack's past as well as the issue that currently threatened both Riley and Jack. The characters of this novel were both charming and unique. I felt for Riley as she struggled to continue working considering the injuries she had suffered and as she dealt with issues she had towards trusting God and have a deeper relationship with Him. I also liked Jack as he was very prickly on the outside but actually had a compassionate and kind heart underneath. The interactions between Riley and Jack were very interesting and sometimes humorous, and I enjoyed watching them grow closer to each other and to the Lord. Overall, I highly enjoyed this first Grace Medical Novel, and I look forward to reading future novels as well. I received this novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
My introduction into the world of Christian fiction began with Candace Calvert's first series Mercy Hospital. I had never had an interest in fictional reading. To be honest it always seemed like a waste of time. But all of that changed when I met the characters in Candace's books and listened to the messages of hope woven within the words of the story.
This was a heart tugging story. There were many characters that made up the story, and they all pulled on my heart strings. One of the main characters was named Riley. She was a hospital Chaplin. She had been attacked; leaving one of her arms weaker than the other, and her finger tips was numb. She struggled to recovery, working hard to get her strength back. Her dream was to be back in the E.R. As a nurse. She took the opportunity to volunteer to work in Jack's free clinic to provide health care to those that couldn't afford it. She and Jack became close. I could feel the struggles of all the characters, felt the heart wrenching emotions when they lost someone , and also felt their joy for the happy times they shared. This book will not disappoint. I will recommend it to anyone searching for a good read.
This is the first book in the Grace Medical series.
I really enjoyed this book and Candace's ability to weave medical drama in with a good dose of trying to figure out what secrets or hurts someone is hiding from co-workers/friends. Her characters have real struggles and being in ER can sometimes magnify those. Be sure to pick up this one and read for yourself. We see, and get to know, more of Riley (who was in the Mercy series) and Jack, along with Kate, Bandy, Vesta and many others.
