Afternoon, readers! With spring officially in full swing, I’m on the blog today to share a few new inspirational stories releasing from your favorite authors this month. So grab a book, enjoy that sunshine, and let us know in the comments what you’re reading right now.
A Medical Hope Opera
Tired of running from her past, nurse Kate Callison intends to become Austin Grace Hospital’s permanent ER director and make Texas her home. Then unthinkable tragedy wraps the ER in crime tape, bringing swarms of media, legal chaos—and a search-and-rescue hero who seems determined to meddle in her life.
For Wes Tanner, nothing beats finding someone who’s lost; he’s known that helpless terror firsthand. So he’ll expand his team’s lifeline of hope: K9 tracking, swift-water rescue, even horse-mounted searches. He’s ready for anything—except Austin Grace’s prickly and dismissive ER director.
As Kate and Wes discover more about each other, new respect becomes something deeper. Kate wonders if her heart might have finally found a home. Then an unsolved missing-person case—and a startling new one—become catalysts that threaten the loss of all she and Wes have found.
Thoughts on Rescue Team:
“Rescue Team is another fast paced, evocative, romantic drama . . . populated by a humble and hunky hero, a dedicated yet defensive heroine, and a cast of intriguing minor characters that only add to this story’s appeal.”
“Calvert is a master at character development. Not only are her main characters well developed but she brings the same depth and authenticity to her secondary characters as well.”
The Suspense Zone
Healing Women’s Fiction
Shelby’s life isn’t glamorous, but it is predictable—and that’s the way she likes it. A survivor of her father’s violence, she has spent a lifetime creating a safe existence devoid of dependence. But her carefully managed world begins to break when, under staggering circumstances, she becomes a single mother to four-year-old Shayla.
In a drastic attempt to escape her childhood’s influence, Shelby moves to Germany, but she quickly discovers how intimately linked memory and healing are—and how honestly she must scrutinize her past in order to aspire to a richer future. As she juggles a new job, a new culture, a new daughter, and the attention of a persistent basketball coach, Shelby’s fresh start becomes a quest for the courage to be not only a survivor but someone who prevails.
Thoughts on In Broken Places:
“With a vividness in her language and a poignant tone throughout, Phoenix tells a tender story about a woman whose past has left its mark on her and how one unexpected wrinkle turns out to be a blessing in disguise.”
Romantic Times, 4-star review
“Phoenix pens skillful turns of phrase and vividly brings to life settings as the story toggles from present-day Germany to key moments from the past.”
