Publisher's Summary

As a physician in the ER of a rural South Carolina hospital, Dr. Rhea Lynch is a dedicated healer, a woman of science, and to some degree, a skeptic. But her most fundamental beliefs are put to the test with the arrival of a traveling faith healer, whose "cures" produce some baffling mysteries: a young quadriplegic woman can suddenly move her arms; a chronic pain sufferer begins to dance again. Events go from bizarre to deadly with the arrival of a gravely injured but violent young woman determined to practice a dark, deadly magic. As the pieces of this puzzle begin to fall into place, Rhea will find her beliefs, her skill and her understanding tested in unfathomable ways as she enters a realm where science and strange faiths collide.

The Dialog Sparkles

This is the first time I have read a book by Gwen Hunter. I discovered after I bought the book it is part three of a series. Apparently the series has been out since 2004, but with the new release in Kindle and audio format it has revived the series.

The series is set in Dawkins County, a rural part of South Carolina. Rheane Rheaburn Lynch, M.D. is an emergency room physician for Dawkins County’s small hospital. This particular book deals with faith healing. There is lots of medical terminology, all explained and lots of suspense, action, humor as well as small southern town politics.

Hunter has developed highly rich complex characters and a compelling suspenseful plot. It is a fast easy read. Carol Hendrickson narrates the story.

Not bad but preferred the previous books

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes as I listen whilst doing other things and it was a good book to keep my mind occupied whilst motorway driving or working in the garden

Would you be willing to try another one of Carol Hendrickson’s performances?

Reluctantly she isn't my favourite narrator by a long distance but as she has narrated the next book in the series I will cope

Do you think Deadly Remedy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There is a follow up book but in any case the medical drama lends itself well to a series of books

Any additional comments?

Don't start the series with this book. The first 2 are better and also define the characters much better, if you enjoyed them then this one is fine as a follow up
