Dr. Jama Keith is haunted by a terrible secret. She never wanted to return to her hometown of River Dance, Missouri, but now she must, risking exposure. River Dance financed her dreams of becoming a doctor, now she owes the community a debt of gratitude. If only she can avoid her former boyfriend, Tyrell Mercer.

When Tyrellís niece, Doriann, is kidnapped by two of the FBIís most wanted, notorious killers, Jama canít refuse to help. After all, sheís been closely involved with Tyrell and his family for years. Will Tyrell and Jama find Doriann before its too late, or will the danger cost Tyrell and Jama the ultimate price ó their lives?

A Killing Frost is the first book in Hannah Alexanderís newest series with Steeple Hill, A River Dance series. Full of medical terms and page turning suspense, Hannah Alexander fans will not be disappointed.

I enjoyed getting to know Jama and the other characters in the book, and getting to know a new community in Missouri. As always, Ms. Alexanderís characters are expertly developed and three dimensional. My only complaint is that after reading the rest of Hannah Alexander's books, it doesn't seem that the plot varies much any more. I could pretty well figure out what would happen and where the story was going. However, this is an intriguing read. Donít miss A Killing Frost.
