From Library Journal
In this sequel to Second Opinion, the stress of the Emergency Room combined with the pressure of parenting two teenagers keep widowed Dr. Grant Sheldon busy. As his relationship with Lauren, an ER nurse, continues to develop, he also tries to deal with a number of drug-related emergencies, a problem he thought he'd never see in the small town of Dogwood Springs. Meanwhile, Grant's twins, Beau and Brooke, get involved in trying to stop the local manufacturers and sellers of methamphetamines. When Grant must go to St. Louis to defend himself in a wrongful death malpractice suit, Beau and Brooke are targeted by the drug king pin, who wants their snooping stopped at any cost. The melodrama surrounding the lives of the hospital staff and teens will appeal to non-demanding readers, but the admirable portrayal of a single father strengthens the plot. Libraries where Terri Blackstock's "Newpointe 911" series is popular will want to add this. Alexander is the pen name for Cheryl and Melvin Hodde. Cheryl is a researcher while Melvin is an ER physician.
