"Second Opinion" is a Christian medical suspense novel with some romance. It's the first in a series, but one character is carried over from the authors' "ER Trilogy" (which starts with "Sacred Trust"). You don't need to read that series to understand this one.

The suspense mainly comes from an unknown illness that is striking only this community--what is causing it? The characters also dealt with issues like the pressures put on the pastor, untrue gossip that is destroying the reputation of two...more

Nurse Lauren McCaffrey moved to Dogwood Springs to get away from the pressures of her loving family who feel that at 35, she really should be married and settled with a family. She's had enough of them setting her up on blind dates...and it doesn't help that she really does want to be married and have a family, but the guys she likes always seem to love someone else. Maybe she is destined to be single. Maybe she just needs to focus on God and sharing His love to those around her.

A review from my old blog...

Once again the writing duo of Hannah Alexander doesn't fail to disappoint. I love everything medical... one of the reasons I almost went into the medical profession... and the way that Alexander weaves together multiple stories works. I don't always like multiple story lines or too many characters and sometimes Alexander gets dragged down with too many.

While I probably won't ever purchase any of these books they are an enjoyable read and I don't mind spending time rea...more
The Hannah Alexander team creates amazing characters that one can totally relate to. And this book tops my list with breathtaking ER action and true to life dramas. I loved all the twists and turns involving each doctor, patient, neighbor and the christian love and beliefs they shared. Lauren Mc Caffrey and Dr. Grant solve many things together as they are drawn into everyone's dilemmas including their own. This was one of my favorites, can't wait to read the others in the series!!
This book was neither great or awful. You could tell a doctor wrote it with the depth of the medical talk and it was sort of long winded in sections, for my like. So while I won't run out and get the second book in the series, maybe sometime I will.
Hannah Alexander, a husband-wife team, never disappoints. Their books have exciting happenings in the ER of a hospital, a mystery that often involves the town, people struggling with questions for God, people drawing closer to God, and romance somewhere in there. Since the husband of the team works in the ER, it seems very accurate and one can even learn about illnesses and the symptoms. Highly recommended.
I enjoyed this trilogy set in a small Ozark town, especially as I had just moved to the same area when I read it. I enjoy Hannah Alexander's writing style and the medical scenes in these books are realistic but not overwhelming for those of us not proficient with the ER.
A nice combination of mystery, romance, and inspirational message is the Healing Touch series by Hannah Alexander. Start with Second Opinion.
This book started out great and ended great, but was rather blah in the middle.

Good characters. Well written. A bit too religious for me though
