ABOUT THE BOOK:

A Beautiful Young Woman Banished from Home Abigail Stutzman thought it was bad enough being dropped at the nearest bus station and sent to live several states away with some relatives she’d never heard about, much less met. But now, just a week after her arrival in Jamesport, Missouri, she finds herself at the scene of a barn fire. An intentional barn fire. And all fingers are pointed at her. She’s desperate to prove her innocence and protect her reputation, but nobody’s making that easy to do. And God certainly doesn’t seem willing to help. A Brave Firefighter with an Agenda of His Own
Sam Miller
is in the process of turning over a new leaf. Determined to atone for the follies of his past, he is a volunteer firefighter, an EMT, and a doctor–in–training. When local barn fires escalate, everyone suspects arson. And since the Miller family are among the victims, no one is more determined to see the perpetrators brought to justice than Sam.

A Kindled Flame Neither One Could Have Anticipated
When their paths first cross, at the site of a barn burning, the emotional intensity rivals the warmth of the flames. Soon, they must decide whether this fire is one they should feed or extinguish. And they’ll discover that the truth can prove more dangerous than a blazing inferno.

My thoughts:

This is the first book I have read by Laura. The book captured my interest from the first few pages. You are thrown into Abigail’s trouble right away and hope for a way out for her. I kept hoping she would get a chance to tell her side of the story otherwise she looked very guilty.

But something happened for me after the first initial chapters. I felt like things were kind of being forced to happen to the characters. I wasn’t really feeling this strong attraction between Sam and Abigail. This could just be me, of course, but it wasn’t working for me. I felt like they kept rehashing the same thoughts over and over.

Like I said the first few chapters really sucked me in but then I found myself not too interested in what was happening. As always, this is my opinion only and my perspective.
