Mills shifts narrative perspectives from one main character to the next as she moves from chapter to chapter. Meghan, Ash, and Lindsay are very interesting people to follow, and the plot is well developed, not losing the interest of the reader and always developing a new twist to keep the interest high. The very stubborn personalities of Ash and Meghan bring them into quite a ride of a relationship. The two agents' bravery and tenacity provide a sharp contrast to the fearful and confused Lindsay. And the added romance that Mills throws in does not distract from the storyline; it only improves it by being careful not to annoy the reader with anything overly sappy.
The setting of Attracted to Fire is a rural Texas ranch where Secret Service agents protect the recovering Lindsay after increasing threats have been made on her life. What seems to be a mundane assignment for the agents turns out to be an incredibly dangerous and shocking mission, as murders and mysterious happenings begin to occur seemingly for no reason. Lindsay faces the choice to change and better herself, but this proves no easy way out as her stalker determines to make her life miserable when she is sober. Turmoil haunts her at every turn, and the lives of her family members and herself ultimately depend on her actions. The book, of course, hits its ultimate climatic point near the very end, making it both a memorable and powerful story.
The main characters certainly are not all perfect, which makes them easy to relate to and understand. Learning from errors and realizing the critical need for self-improvement, compassion, forgiveness, trust, and faith, helps them all to better themselves and those around them. After reading this book, the Bible verses in Psalm 46:1-2 seemed to sum up the theme beautifully, stating, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea" (NIV).
I would undeniably recommend this book to teenagers; it hit just about everything from romance to mystery to adventure, and left me with a feeling of encouragement and satisfaction, as well as new insight on some very critical life lessons. Michelle Radd, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
