Phew, Sparks are Flying!
The Pick: Where There’s Smoke by Susan May Warren
The Plot: “Blazin’” Kate Burns returns home after the tragic death of her wildfire fighting father. Determined to follow in his legacy she joins the Jude County Hotshots. Sparks fly as she reunites with her old flame, Jed. Together they learn a little about trust, a little about love, and a lot about faith as they fight to put out the wildfires raging through Montana.
The Pros and Cons: It’s no secret that I am a Susan May Warren superfan. I especially love her Josie series, and her Nothing But Trouble Series (you can read my reviews HERE and HERE). Her older books will always be my favorites.
In Where There’s Smoke, Susan May Warren’s talent at writing inspirational romantic suspense really shines through. The spiritual truths shared, the (clean) romantic bits, and the drama of the firefighting all pull together into a package of awesome. This is Susan May Warren at her best. I look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.
Note: It was a little surreal reading this shortly after the tragedies in California and the wildfires they are fighting. If you’ve been affected by fire, you may want to take a pass on this series.
The Perfect Book For: Romantic Suspense fans. Period.
