About the Book
Nurse Lauren Barclay put her life on hold to keep a watchful eye on her troubled sister. It’s why she’s back in Houston. But that means confronting the brooding physician assistant who caused painful turmoil in her family—and left Lauren with memories her heart can’t forget.

PA and single parent Elijah Landry is no stranger to stormy relationships, including one with his father, who is threatening him with a restraining order. It won’t stop Eli from protecting his disabled brother—or from making peace with Lauren. He wants that and so much more.

But as Lauren and Eli draw closer, a powerful hurricane roars toward Houston. Survival instincts take priority and everything changes. Can hope weather the storm?

My Thoughts
As I’ve come to expect, Candace Calvert has brought readers another wonderful novel. Life Support is a perfect blend of romance, medicine, family drama, and natural disaster! I felt like there was something new coming at me constantly, and while some readers may have been overwhelmed by so much going on, I really enjoyed it.

To me, the family aspects were the strongest part of this story. Lauren and her relationship with her sister and Elijah and his relationship with his brother were prominent throughout. It was nice to see this as a focus rather than a side story. Lauren and Elijah were both in very difficult situations and it was interesting to see how they both coped.

Fans of medical dramas, romance, and family stories will enjoy Life Support. Be sure to check it out! [5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House through NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
