Code Triage by Candace Calvert* a review

Dr. Leigh Stathos likes her ER shifts fast, furious and adrenaline-infused, “Treat ‘em and street ‘em” with no emotional complications. Life’s taught her a soul-rending lesson: nothing lasts forever, including marriage. The clock is ticking toward the end of hers. Then an unwelcome confrontation with “the other woman” begins a whole new set of lessons.
San Francisco police officer Nick Stathos never gives up, whether protecting his patrol neighborhood, holding fast to faith—or trying to save his marriage. Seven days is all he has to reach Leigh’s heart. But when a desperate act of violence slams Golden Gate Mercy Hospital into lockdown, it starts a chain of events that will change lives forever.

Former ER nurse, wife, Mom and grandmother, Candace Calvert believes that love, laughter, and faith are the best medicines of all. Her new Mercy Hospital Series for Tyndale House offers readers charismatic characters, pulse-pounding medical drama, romance, humor, suspense--and a prescription for hope. Think, “Grey’s Anatomy finds its soul.” Candace makes her home in northern California.

Code Triage, is Book 3 in the Mercy Hospital series. I have never read a book by Candace Calvert before, but don’t plan on missing any more and I will read the ones I’ve missed.
This story is about Nick and Leigh Stathos. They are married but very close to being divorced. Leigh is a very tough kind of doctor in the ER. Officer Nick Stathos is a hard worker that helps over and beyond the call of duty. Nick made a mistake that put their marriage in jeopardy. Then things bring them together again and they both have to face each other and their decisions. Throw in a killer on drugs who wants his children and a woman who doesn’t want Nick and Leigh back together and you have a story full of action, romance, suspense, drama, faith , and a sincere man who wants so desperately to save his marriage after he hurt his wife.
I really enjoyed this book for many reasons. I love medical books and Code Triage is full of many different crazy episodes of emergencies. Leigh blames it on the full moon. I love books that are full of suspense. Code Triage keeps you on the edge of your seat. Romance in a book is always an added plus. In Code Triage the romance is between husband and wife. That’s really the special part.
I highly recommend this book and so will you. A wonderful book that won’t take you long to read, because it’s so exciting. Get your copy today.

I have read the first two books in this series and so enjoyed them! This one sounds just as good! I agree - romance between husband and wife is so sweet! :)
Thanks for the review!

I enjoy medical drama and romance, so Code Triage sounds like a great read. I also love stories of reconciliation and love continuing on.
