Trish Milburn's "A Firefighter in the Family"
I'm normally not a reader of contemporaries or categories, but I loved "A Firefighter in the Family." It had it all: a fallen-from-grace heroine trying to reclaim her life, a hero with a lot of history and something to prove, family drama, high-stakes, and a mystery tying them all together.Was this review helpful?

I felt for Randi. From page one it's clear she's a woman who owns her past mistakes and wants to move forward, but strained family ties and hurt feelings keep her from making amends. I also liked the hero, Zac, almost instantly, understanding his reluctance to drop his guard or his barriers after experiencing so much unfounded mistrust and betrayal. The fact that these two broken people have a rocky romantic past only makes the sparks between them burn brighter, and the chance at a HEA that much more important and elusive.
As if the personal and romantic plotlines aren't enough to keep the story moving, Randi has reluctantly returned to her hometown, family, and Zac to investigate an arson. Suspects include nearly everyone, including people Randi cares about, and more fires are being set. To top it all off, the arsonist is rather insistent Randi not discover his/her real identity...and is willing to go to extreme measures to end her investigation for good.

Heartbroken, Randi fled her hometown especially as her family blames her for her father¿s accident her lover failed to defend her.------------- Zac Parker was also a Horizon Beach firefighter, but he was falsely accused and convicted of arson he spent time in prison. He also feels guilt for letting down his beloved Randi.------------- Three years since the incident that sent her fleeing town, Randi comes home. Although Zac distrusts everyone, he vows to be there for the woman he still loves as he feels guilty for letting her down. She investigates a fire that looks like arson only to find herself in danger with Zac keeping his pledge to risk his life to keep her safe.--------------- A strong ensemble cast (mostly her family) enhances a terrific second chance at love romantic investigative thriller. Fans will enjoy Randi¿s return home as she and Zac are filled with regret and guilt their remorse supersedes their love. Fans will enjoy this engaging tale of first responders in love but with a past still haunting their present seemingly leaving no future.------------------- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
