CODE TRIAGE by Candace Calvart

Dr. Leigh Stathos is a wounded ER doctor. It's nothing medicine can fix though. Her heart is full of hurt that began when she was a child right up to the affair her husband had. Leigh doesn't believe in 'happily ever after'. She can't grasp that a loving God would allow these bad things to happen. Her divorce will be final in a week and then she can finally move on. Officer Nick Stathos made the biggest mistake of his life the night his best friend was killed. Since that time he has been trying to win back the heart of the woman he truly loves, his wife, Leigh. Nick is someone who never gives up. But as the end of the week draws closer to their divorce being final, it seems pretty clear Leigh's not going to change her mind. When an act of violence by a desperate man lands the hospital in a lockdown it's the start of events that will forever change the lives of those involved.

First let me start off by saying I LOVED the cover of Code Triage! Very often covers do not truly depict the people in the story but not true in this case. They totally match Nick and Leigh. This was another tremendous story by Candace Calvert. She had my stomach tied up in such knots I thought I would have to go to the ER. She made me feel so much emotion from our main characters. You totally understood why each one was hurting and this author helped you fully understand both sides of the issues. I loved Nick's character. He was a great guy who had a week moment. One that almost cost him his entire future. Leigh was a strong woman with big protective walls around her heart. But was the Lord quietly working all things together for good? Read Code Triage and find out! It's a great reminder that you should guard your heart as well as your marriage and keep God at it's center. Great Job, Candace!!! I highly recommend this story. It can be read as a stand alone but for a richer experience you'll want to read Critical Care and Disaster Status first! A thank you goes to Tyndale for sending me this complimentary copy for review.
