By Your Side by Candace Calvert

ER nurse Macy Wynn learned essential, gritty lessons in the California foster care system: land on your feet and trust no one. She’s finally located the fellow foster child she loves like a sister, but the girl’s in deep trouble. Macy’s determined to help, no matter what it takes. Her motto is to “make it happen” in any situation life throws at her—even when she butts heads with an idealistic cop.

Deputy Fletcher Holt believes in a higher plan, the fair outcome—and his ability to handle that by himself if necessary. Now he’s been yanked from Houston, his mother is battling cancer, and he’s attracted to a strong-willed nurse who could be the target of a brutal sniper.

When everything goes wrong, where do they put their trust?

Macy is as tough as nails after growing up in foster care.  She believes in God but doesn’t consult him on some of biggest decisions of her life.  The same can be said about Fletcher. Only he grew up in a loving family.  This is the story of their journey.  The journey is rocky at times as they find out the ones they thought they could trust the most is not who they thought they were.  Fletcher has to realize that he is not in control of his mother’s cancer.  Macy has to learn what happiness means.

This is not a high suspense novel.  I was expecting more. The sniper did make it suspenseful in some parts.  Overall it was a good book. One I would recommend to someone who likes light suspense with romance thrown in. 

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
