After killing a dangerous criminal in the line of duty, police detective Jake Donovan must talk to psychologist Dr. Kira McGinnis before returning to work. But Kira won't clear Jake for duty until he talks out his feelings about the shooting -- something Jake is reluctant to do. Kira, in the meantime, fights her attraction to her patient but ends up giving in when Jake helps her solve her own family issues with her teenage brother. Family First (4), by Margaret Watson, is an interesting story. Just as people do in real life, her characters make sacrifices for those they love, an element that makes the story ring true.
