Fire Investigator Sadie McGregor has been called to her hometown of Emerald Point, Missouri to investigate a suspicious fire which claimed the life of a local college student. By appearance the fire looks like the girl was just careless. What Sadie and Sheriff Quinn Harrington discover will not only affect those close to them, but will rock the entire community of Emerald Point and put Sadie’s life on the line.

Sadie’s life isn’t the only thing at stake. Struggling with the guilt of having been responsible for the fire that killed her family, when she was only seven, Sadie doesn’t feel she’s worthy of God’s love and forgiveness. Will Quinn be able to prove otherwise before it’s too late?

Review by Fennel at Long and Short Reviews:

“It has been a long time since I’ve read a book where the research has blended in so seamlessly with the story. That’s not because other books are badly written, but because this one is so well written. The author has presented technical knowledge about the structure of fires in such a way the reader absorbs it almost without conscious thought as it lends information and depth to the story.... Almost every emotion imaginable is depicted in this story, and as the flowering relationship between Sadie and Quinn blossoms into love evil is stalking them everywhere they go.... This is a beautiful, yet hard-hitting story, fluently written, presenting characters you fall in love with, and ensures you’ll keep it on your shelf permanently and re-read often, which is why I have given it a Best Book rating.” You can read the entire review here:http://longandshortreviews.blogspot....e-patrick.html
