Betsy St. Amant is by far one of the best Christian writers that I have ever seen. Her vivid imagination and gift from God to paint the scenery and tell the story will keep you on the edge of your seat and unable to put your book down. Being the wife of a fireman... I have also lived many similarities of events in her story. Every book that I have read of hers leaves me with a lesson learned that I can apply to my daily living. I look forward to reading many more from her. I definitely recommend this book!

Betsy St. Amant paints the story of love-hungry, conflicted, and hurting Marissa Hawthorne. Marissa is a mother of a young son, widow of a fire-fighting husband, and daughter of the Fire Chief. She has plenty of experience with the difficulties and hardship involved in a life revolving around fighting fires and she has promised herself that she will not allow her young son to experience any more of that type of pain. Unfortunately for Marissa, her plan becomes more difficult when handsome Jacob Greene offers to help change her flat tire. When Marissa discovers that Jacob is a fire-fighter, she gives him the cold shoulder. Jacob doesn't want to take no for an answer, until he finds out that Marissa's father is his boss, and the last guy who talked about her in the firehouse got transferred out of state. The attraction they feel toward each other is undeniable, but will Jacob risk it all to try and win Marissa's affection? Will Marissa allow Jacob to get close to her with her young, impressionable son in the mix? The writing makes you feel the conflict of each character, and the desperation of wanting the love story to have a happy ending. I appreciated a story of love that didn't have any raunchy love scenes, but instead showed characters with good values and learning lessons about the definition of real love. I read this book in two days, couldn't put it down. I look forward to reading more by St. Amant and would recommend this book, as well as her others, to adults and teens without fear.

Firefighters come and go in romance popularity but their work ethic, risky profession, and brotherhood always make them appealing heroes to me. In Fireman Dad, Betsy St. Amant has created a fresh romance spotlighting the world of firemen and those who love them. Her insider knowledge and ability to weave a tale that is current yet timeless make her book one not to be missed. With a workaholic fire chief father and late husband who died in the line of duty, Marissa Hawthorne carries more than her share of baggage when it comes to interacting with firemen. Date one? Not a chance. But then Jacob Greene appears on the scene as her personal hero. He is everything she could want in a man: a gentleman, kind to her son, giving, attractive. But he works in the same profession that killed her husband and stole her father's time with her. Jacob is just as attracted to Marissa but has his own obstacles to developing a relationship with her. But when he decides to leap past those obstacles, watch out! Jacob is one of the most attractive "nice guys" I have met in a romance. How St. Amant brings these two characters together is a lovely combination of longing, love, and lessons in trusting God. A bit of suspense running through the book makes the reader turn the pages a bit faster but it was the courtship of Jacob and Marissa, set against the background of modern day struggles, making me race to the epilogue.

Fireman Dad, by Betsy St. Amant, is a fantastic read. I love macho firemen and Jacob Greene is definitely that and much more. Sparks fly between him and Marissa Hawthorne, enough to ignite a blazing fire. But she keeps her distance from him, and he has no idea why or what is holding her back since she seems to care for him too. His questions are soon answered when he discovers several major obstacles-obstacles that may force him to stop their fiery romance from ever igniting. Want to know what they are? Nope. Not tellin'. Read the book to find out. Against her better judgment, Marissa takes on client Jacob. Something about him lures her to him and for the first time in years she's ready to start dating. But when she finds out what he does for a living, she quickly douses the flames of romance between them. Doesn't matter how good looking and kind hearted he is. One dead fireman was enough. Will Jacob and his cookie bouquet be able to tear down the fortress wall Marissa has built around her heart? Sorry. Not tellin'. Read the book to find out. It will be money WELL spent.

From the moment I started reading I was drawn into the lives of the main characters. I enjoy a story that I can feel like I am right there in their lives, feeling their joy or sorrow. I didn't want to put it down. This book has it all, mystery, romance, joy, sadness and the joy of knowing God is always near. This is the first book I have read by Betsy St. Amant, but it won't be the last.
