Kate - Head of ER Department at Austin Grace hospital. 10 years ago she abandoned her baby boy in the doorway of a fire station after being victimized 9mths previously. She has never forgiven herself and has been on the run ever since, working in 6 hospital in the last 10 years.
Wes - On the Search and Rescue Team along with being part of his family's water well drilling business. Abandoned by his mother in the woods when he was 7 years old, never understanding why. Her remains were finally found a year later. His father eventually remarried and he has the most wonderful stepmother. Wes has never truly come to terms with his mother abandoning him.
Dylan - Wes's younger brother who is autistic but tells Wes that Kate is very pretty and knows when Wes is upset.
Judith - widow. She is a hospital volunteer and you get the impression that something is not right but it is not until the very end of the book that we find out everything about her.
Barrett Lyon - a greasy lawyer that is only looking out for himself and encourages Kate to lie about her involvement with the baby born dead and abandoned in the bathrooms of the ER. Barrett wants Kate to point the finger at someone else.
Lauren - an ER worker who is also a peer counselor.
Matt - Kate's dad, a recovering alcoholic who went down that path when Kate's mom died. Matt desperately wants to mend the relationship with his daughter but at first it doesn't work. He has been clean for 9mths when we hear of him first.
Gabe - Wes's partner who is seriously injured by a rigged gun on a tree going off on a search & rescue for a doll belonging to a family friend with Alzheimers.Read more ›
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the book. The main male character, Wes, was very much on the Alpha male scale of things, very involved with his family and community and was part of the local Search and Rescue team. He had ghosts in his past relating to the actions of his birth mother, ghosts that he can't let go of and spur him on in his quest to "bring them in alive". Wes also has a very strong Christian faith.
The main female character, Kate, is a nurse who recently started work in the ER of Austin Grace Hospital and immediately found herself taking on the temporary position of ER Director following the mysterious disappearance of the previous Director, Sunni. Her attitude has not made her many friends and with feelings running high in the department because of Sunni's disappearance and some malicious on-line posts about the short-comings of the department she is not sure that she wants to become the Director permanently or even stay at the hospital.
Kate also has a secret, one that has tortured her for 10 years. Alone and afraid she had given birth to and then abandoned her son. She had never told anyone about this and felt that God would no longer want to be in her life so she turned her back on the faith she once had and distanced herself from her only surviving parent, her father.Read more ›
Wes Tanner is the perfect man. Handsome, blue eyes, works in the family business and leads a small volunteer search and rescue in Houston, Texas. He searches for the lost because he still wonders why his mother committed suicide when he was a child. He is attracted to Kate, but she keeps herself aloof from everyone, especially her father.
There lots of suspense and a nice romance with a good mix of internal and external conflict and an underlying theme of being lost then found. Rescue Team is very well plotted and relatively complex, with solid and likeable yet fallible characters, especially Kate and her father, Matt.
There were a lot of characters including five viewpoint characters, and while they weren't difficult to keep straight, I do think five is too many point of view characters in a novel of this length. Kate and Wes, as heroine and hero in a medical romance, were obvious viewpoint characters, and I could see why Matt, Kate's father, was important.
The other two? The inclusion of one effectively revealed her role in the `mystery' of the letters, while I'm still not sure if the other was a red herring or just setting the character up as being the lead in the next book in the series.Read more ›
