Dr. Rhea-Rhea Lynch works the emergency room of South Carolina's rural Dawkins County Hospital. Though most big city folks would expect the ER to remain quiet, Rhea knows that her hospital can get really hopping. For instance tonight, she saved the life of Venetia Gordon, a quadriplegic teen who lost the use of her limbs and her hope several months ago. Immediately after that a vehicle crashes in the parking lot with two females inside. One requires Rhea to perform a Mash-like amputation to save her life. Both act weird having suffered physical abuse, torture and even amputation.

Not long afterward, healer DaraDevinna Faith arrives to help the less fortunate. Rhea's faith is in modern medicine, but though “seeing is believing”, she has trouble reconciling that Venetia suddenly lifts her arms after seeing the healer. Only her friend Miss Essie has an explanation that black magic is in the air between the healer and the two female accident victims and death will follow.

DEADLY REMEDY, the third Dr. Lynch novel (see PRESCRIBED DANGER and DELAYED DIAGNOSIS) is an engaging romantic medical thriller that takes a weirder turn than the previous novels. The story line is exciting and never slows down as the plot smoothly moves forward. Rhea remains a delightful, caring, yet harried individual and the recurring support cast provides either depth to the plot or enables the audience to better understand the heroine.
