Steeple Hill Books A Killing Frost

A terrible secret haunts Dr. Jama Keith. But she must return to her past-i.e., her hometown of River Dance, Missouri-and risk exposure. She owes a debt to the town for finanacing her dreams. If only she can avoid old flame Terell Mercer-but River Dance is too small for that.

When Terell's niece is abducted by two of the FBI's most wanted, Jama can't refuse to help-Terell's family were like kin to her for many years. The search for young Doriann puts Terell and Jama in peril. But revealing her secret shame to the man she loves, scares Jama more than the approaching danger.

Obligations, debts to pay, small town dramas, a kidnapping, and FBI investigations make up "A Killing Frost". Dr. Jama Keith returns to River Dance and immediately gets thrown into a confrontation with her former fiance, Tyrell, before the clinic even opens. First patient, his father then, his niece was abducted, so there was no escaping their meeting again. Hopefully their reunion would be a pleasant one without having to reveal her secret to Tyrell. Captivating and suspenseful twists along with Doriann's faith in God's guiding hand completes another one of Hannah Alexander's great adventures!!

"A Killing Frost" is Christian romantic suspense. Actually, it's two stories--Doriann and the kidnappers in one storyline and Jama and Tyrell in another, and they only briefly merge at the end.
The characters were complex and acted in realistic ways. The vivid details brought the setting and characters alive in my imagination. The high suspense was created by medical emergencies, threat of physical danger to Doriann, and relationship tensions.
Doriann--the kidnapped 11-year-old--was grabbed by the bad guys while she was disobeying her parents, so she started bargaining with God that she'd never do this or that again if he'd only protect and save her. By the end, she realized that God had been taking care of her long before she started making bargains with him. One of my favorite lines was, "This was why Humphrey was a wandering dog. Because God knew that someday, this dog would need to wander here and find a freezing kid in the middle of a killing frost" (to help keep her warm). I loved Doriann's part of the story.
The Christian element was woven into the story, and it never came across to me as preachy. There was a minor amount of "he swore" style bad language. There was no sex. Over all, I'd recommend this well-written, suspenseful novel.

A good story that was well written. The end was too neat and tidy for real life and took some of the enjoyment out of the book. But overall, a great read.

Hannah Alexander is a great writing team. I always enjoy reading their books. This was a "can't put it down" book.

If you want mystery, this story is packed from the first page to the last. In your pastare often things you prefer not to face, butwhen you return home, face them you must.
