Twelve years ago, Francesca Stapleton fled Stillwater, IL, to keep from dying of boredom. Now an emergency room nurse in Chicago, she has returned home to help her pregnant sister, Charlene, who is facing an emergency C-section. Frankie arrives at Stillwater General just as the emergency room is inundated with victims from a bus crash. No one is paying attention to the old man suffering cardiac arrest outside the building, so Frankie jumps into action and saves Clem Jensen's life, only to wind up squarely in the crosshairs of the hospital administration when Clem suddenly dies. Perplexed, Frankie knows Clem should not have expired. What is happening at Stillwater General?
VERDICT Eileen Dreyer fans will enjoy this appealing debut mystery that mixes family drama, medicine, and a soupçon of romance.
