Code Triage by Candace Calvert

Code Triage

Code Triage is the third in The Mercy Hospital series by Candace Calvert. It is the story of the soon to be divorced couple: Leigh, an emergency room doctor, and Nick, a police officer. The story starts with colliding of Leigh, Nick and the woman Nick had an affair with in the emergency room.



The story centers upon Nick and Leigh struggling with the fact that their marriage is ending and Nick’s battle to keep them together. The internal struggle that they both go through is intriguing and engaging. The love that they shared is sparked through out the story, and they have many moments of tension in which it appears that there is no hope for a future.



I enjoyed it enough to wish that I had read the previous two novels in the series before reading this one. I think that would have helped in the reading of the epilogue which takes place in an unfamiliar location with unfamiliar characters, but I finally figured out what was going on.



It is a nice relaxing read for the plane or while on vacation, though I might suggest taking all three of the books instead of just the end of the series. It stands alone but would probably be even more enjoyable with knowing some of the history that is alluded to in the book.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
