Cheney and Shiloh Irons-Winslow return to New York from their honeymoon in the West Indies eager to resume their careers. Cheney is thrilled with the newly opened St. Luke the Physician Hospital, which she helped design and renovate. To her dismay, however, it soon appears that several surgeries have been compromised and patients are contracting new illnesses rather than getting well. As evidence of foul play mounts, Cheney works feverishly to expose the true villain and reveal the desperate secrets that fuel these crimes. Shiloh is running the Winslow Brothers Shipping Company, but it soon is so well organized that boredom haunts him. Cheney is so caught up in medical emergencies, day and night, that he must visit her at the hospital. Though Shiloh's nursing experience could alleviate some of the stress, Cheney believes he doesn't want to return to medicine and determines not to ask for his help. Will her resolve drive a wedge between them? Book jacket.

Library Journal Review

Newlyweds Cheney and Shiloh Irons-Winslow (Where Two Seas Met) face hurdles in their new life in New York City. Cheney, who is working as a physician, discovers that her assistant may be involved in criminal activities, while Shiloh, who has taken over management of the Winslow Brothers Shipping Company, finds marriage to a busy doctor a lonely place. The couple's love for each other and for God will be tested through danger and the complexities of building a life together. The popularity of the prior "Cheney Duvall, M.D." series (including Island of the Innocent and Driven with the Wind) will place this title in demand. For all general and historical fiction collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
