Overview

Kelly McCoy is a firefighter and paramedic who's lived most of her adult life in New York. After 9-11, she relocates to Cincinnati, nursing a broken heart and looking for a new start. She takes one day at a time, trying not to let her losses overwhelm her.

Talia Stoddard is an insurance wiz who's always been smart on the job, but unlucky in love. After years of being told that she's too big, too tall, too black, too lesbian, and not a very snappy dresser, Talia has resigned herself to a life alone with only her dear gay friend Jacob for a diversion.

When Kelly and Talia's lives crash into one another, it's under the most stressful and threatening circumstances. Talia is in terrible danger, and it's up to Kelly to rescue her. In the horrendous situation they end up in, neither expects to find a friend, much less a soul mate.

Will they rescue one another and heal the wounds of their pasts? Or will they both continue to believe that they're not worthy of the kind of love the other might offer?

Souls' Rescue is the story of opening up to love, taking chances, and building a life that everyone dreams about, but few people ever find.

    Worth checking out

    Interesting book, different from the usual formula. Rraises improtant questions and issues. The author may have tried to take on too much in one book but its her first.

    Excellent debut!

    Pat Cronin's debut romance, Souls' Rescue, is, in turns, fresh and nervewracking, insightful and exhilarating, soul searching and bittersweet. It's a great story about two lives that intersect at the most critical of moments, and the fallout of that critical incident rocks the main character's worlds. For them, nothing will ever be the same.

    Cronin hits the mark with accurate fire-fighter/paramedic rescue, a great romance, and an ending that satisfies. If you're looking for a good, solid read, this is the book for you.

    OK story, too many mistakes

    Talia Stoddard is having a normal day on her way to work until a truck comes crashing through the front of the building and pins her in the wreckage. This brings paramedic firefighter Kelly McCoy to the scene. Kelly becomes Talia's lifeline until she can be rescued and continues to visit Talia as she recuperates in the hospital. Talia suffers from an inferiority complex with good reason. She thinks she's too tall, too big and too black for anyone to love her, a concept she's encouraged to believe by her overbearing mother and former lover. Kelly is determined to prove to Talia that she's wrong, if she can get around her mother.

    Souls' Rescue is a standard romance and as such is not a bad story. There's little suspense as to where the story is heading, but it's fine for a quick read. There are some problems with the book however. For one, the story is too short and things happen too quickly. In the time it takes to cut Talia out of the wreckage, Kelly falls completely in love. Characters aren't given time to develop and the book has a rushed feeling to it. The most serious problem is the number of mistakes in the book. Words and names are misspelled and incorrect words are used throughout the book, for example, when the truck knocks a "whole" in the wall. The mistakes extend into the author's biography page where one of the words in the title of a previous book is misspelled.

    If the reader is looking for a story that will occupy a couple of hours of reading, Souls' Rescue will suit. If you are the type of reader who is bothered by mistakes, you might want to try another book.
