RED WOLF'S RETURN
Though they were once lovers, artist Ethan Red Wolf has avoided Maggie McKee since she returned to town and became police chief. But when Ethan finds a wounded eagle, he reports it to Maggie, thinking her teenage son might be involved. Divorced now, Maggie's no longer the girl he knew -- but Ethan's intrigued by the woman she's become. There's no reason not to explore their rekindled feelings -- except one. A cancer survivor, Maggie's reluctant to reveal herself to Ethan, in any way. Mary J. Forbes' Red Wolf's Return (4.5) is a deeply satisfying novel highlighted by a memorable pair of lovers and a great ending.
