Step by Step by Candace Calvert

Three years after a tragic accident left her a widow, ER nurse Taylor Cabot is determined to move on, checking off one item after another on her survival list. Her relationship with a handsome plastic surgeon even gives her hope for the last point—“fall in love again.” At least until crisis chaplain Seth Donovan steps back into her life, reawakening unanswered questions about her husband’s death.

While in San Diego to train community volunteers, Seth hopes to learn why Taylor is backing away from the crisis team and from their friendship. But nothing prepares him for the feelings that arise when he sees Taylor again . . . and sees her moving on with another man.

When a community crisis hits home and puts lives at risk, emotions run high and buried truths are unearthed. Will hope make the survival list?

I had trouble getting into this book.  The characters were ok.  It seemed every time I turned a page a new character was introduced.  Evidently characters from the previous book were in the book too.  I had trouble keeping who was who straight. 

Taylor was trying to overcome the loss of her husband so she moves to a different town and starts a new life there.  The only problem she had was she brought all of her baggage with her.  As she struggles to find her way, the handsome plastic surgeon is there to lend assistance.  Also there, is Seth the Crisis Team manager come to assist the new recruits in San Diego.  Of course Seth wants to help Taylor as well.  Sloan’s story seems disjointed.  I realize she had a part in Taylor’s story.  But there should have been either more information about her or less.  What we got was confusing to me. 

I have read other books by Candace Calvert and have enjoyed them.  I usually go back and re read books.  This will not be one of those books.  I would tell my friends it was an ok book.  Though not  one I would highly recommend.

I was given this book by the Tyndale House Publishers for an honest review.  I was not compensated in anyway.
