Her biological clock is pushing her to decide whether she's ready to add a fourth love: an adopted child. Although Will is on the road just now, Maggie's life is full. When the Whitcombs design and dedicate a special dormitory for single parents and their children, Maggie is thrilled to become the faculty adviser to the young parents. Her new assignment gives her plenty of time to think about what single parenthood would mean for her, that is, plenty of time--until one of the young mothers is poisoned and the web of danger at the dorm threatens to encircle Maggie. There is a killer on campus. Is it an outsider or someone Maggie knows and trusts? Does someone want to destroy Whitcomb House or the college? And is Maggie in as much danger as her students?
