Nothing is as it appears in this page-turning, inspiring romantic suspense. Sadie is the type of character you would love to meet. She's strong, independent, with a great sense of humor. What I loved most about her was her devotion to family and her career, and the fact she's a fighter. Quinn is the perfect hero and a great match for Sadie. I found myself pulling for them from the very first pages. The plot was one I'd never seen before and I love that! If you like a good mystery that will keep you guessing throughout the book, with characters that seem so real you pray for a squeal, you're going to love Fire and Ash.
As a retired fire investigator I have to say kudos to Ms Patrick on her research. I normally don't read romantic suspense, but this book sounded intriguing so I couldn't resist. I WAS NOT DISAPOINTED! The author did an excellent job bringing out the emotions dealt with on the job so well I was not surprised to see she had sought out the help of a real life investigator to help her get inside her heroine's head. Sadie makes a fine fire marshal and her relationship with the police chief seemed natural. As was the bond she had with her family. I look forward to reading more books by Ms Patrick.
These characters were so realistic and the storyline so emotionally charged that it was impossible not to be caught up with them. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and mystery. This is a truly great book.
I was blown away by this book! Almost every emotion imaginable is depicted in this story, and as the relationship between Sadie and Quinn blossoms danger lurks about. It's perfect blend of romance and suspense is a page-turner for sure. If you are looking for a good, inspiring novel that will keep you coming back for more, then you've hit the jackpot. This author has definitely found a new fan!
