Willow Traynor has come to rural Missouri to stay with her brother and heal. Her husband, a police officer, was killed suspiciously in the line of duty, and shortly after his death, Willow was run down by a car and lost her unborn baby. When a fire breaks out at the lodge where she's staying, Willow is put on her guard.

Dr. Graham Vaughn is intrigued by the mysterious Willow. The two form an uneasy alliance and investigate the incidents. Who wants to harm her and why?

Alexander returns readers to the familiar Hideaway locale and characters. Although the plot is interesting and the resolution filled with action, the series' situations are beginning to feel recycled. The strongest and most fascinating portions of the plot are the medical ones, and readers will identify with the characters' faith dilemmas. (Apr., 288 pp., $12.95)
