Rural Missouri where meth labs hide away in the hills, and where everybody knows everybody, sets the scene for this mystery.

Dr. Jama Keith returns to her home town to work in a new medical clinic to pay off a debt to the town that paved her way. She hardly feels at home though. Her reputation for recklessness in high school shadows her right from the start. That’s not the only thing shadowing her new job either. She is haunted by her past with a secrete that keeps gnawing at her heart and gets
"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.

A new author for me. I liked the story of a girl returning to her hometown to be a doctor, but it was just a bit to unbelievable. She saves a life, reunites with her boyfriend, solves a mystery in one day!
Really a very easy read, it will hold your interest.....
Loved this book! Great mix of mystery and suspense along w/ medical thriller. Love the writing style of this novel, too. I highly recommend it.

This was enjoyable... a little predictable and not entirely realistic but a fun read. It has suspense and the usual side romance story :)
Really, really enjoyed the Hideway series from this author so was excited to see a new series had begun. This book did not disappoint.
I couldn't even finish this book... and I finish most everything.
Good story, I read it in one day. Lots of interesting characters.
Predictable almost all the way through but still a good read.
Good but not as spiritual as I was anticipating it to be.
Wow- edge of seat. Nicely done.
