Book Review: "Maybe it's You" by Candace Calvert

About the Book

ER nurse Sloane Ferrell escaped her risky past―new name, zip code, job, and a fresh start. She’s finally safe, if she avoids a paper trail and doesn’t let people get too close. Like the hospital’s too-smooth marketing man with his relentless campaign to plaster one “lucky” employee’s face on freeway billboards.

Micah Prescott’s goal is to improve the Hope hospital image, but his role as a volunteer crisis responder is closer to his heart. The selfless work helps fill a void in his life left by family tragedy. So does a tentative new relationship with the compassionate, beautiful, and elusive Sloane Ferrell.

Then a string of brutal crimes makes headlines, summons responders . . . and exposes disturbing details of Sloane’s past.

Can hope spring from crisis?

My Thoughts

"Maybe it's You" is the third book in the Crisis Team series. It could be read as a standalone, but you get more of Sloane's past if you read the first two books first. To tell the truth, I didn't much like Sloane in the other books, but this book shows Sloane's metamorphosis into a new person. It was encouraging to see her transformation. I truly felt for her and all that she had gone through in her life. I liked Micah and his desire to help others. He also had growth through the book. One thing that did bug me was that he was dating her when she wasn't a Christian. It was interesting, but suspenseful, watching all the pieces of the mystery around Sloane's past and how they fit together.
