Code Triage by Candace Calvert
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.
