On Fire by Patricia Sargeant is a tale of caring, tenacity, determination and commitment. This is a story of a reporter, Sharon MacCabe that is full of caring, tenacity, determination and commitment. She loves her city, where she was born and still resides and feels that the community has the right to know that news. She reports with clarity and integrity. She is assigned to the fire beat and working head strong to become an investigative reporter. To this end she wrote her stories with more info, more facts and did more digging to obtain such. Matthew Payton is a great fire fighter and investigator. After the reporters in Pittsburgh launched a campaign that deemed him the arsonist that was terrorizing the city and even killed his sister is one of those blazes, he leaves and starts existing elsewhere. He ends up is Charleston, WV as the new Fire Captain and has no use for the press. Ms. Sargeant spun a tale that kept one engaged on numerous levels....emotional, curiosity, suspense and knowledge. We see these two working together and witness their feelings growing for each other. We get to see how this story unfolds and whether they can last. This is an awesome story that keeps us on edge and wondering. This is a forthright review of a novel given to me for review purposes.

On Fire By Patricia Sargeant Who knew Sharon MacCabe, reporter for the Charleston Times would find the Right Kind of Lover? Sharon MacCabe, a write for the Charleston Times, who’d been assigned to the Fire department for the past 6 months would be involved in covering an arsonist? Sharon’s boss Wayne assigned her to this beat to only tell her, that the spot was now being assigned to Lucas Stanton, the nephew of Senator Kurt Stanton who was running again. Lucas was newly graduated from West Virginia State College and had no background in journalism. Sharon worked her way to that position, and was incised at being pushed out. Being the go getter that she is, Sharon continued with her own investigation which included interviewing the newly appointed Fire Chief Matthew Stanton. Upon meeting sparks flare between the journalist and the fire chief! These sparks lent themselves to a difficult time for the two. Matthew found the reporter to be the typical reporter, nosey and quick to make false accusations, things he had faced back in Pittsburgh. Sharon found the fire chief to be terse, stand offish and defensive, despite painting quite a handsome picture in his uniform! Tensions between the two don’t make it easy to find out who the arsonist is, along with Sharon no longer being assigned to the Fire Dept. Through all the modicum of put upon pleasantries, the two begin working a united front, workwise as well as personally, while both of their lives are put in danger. Questions are asked, answers show themselves, along with Sharon finding The Right Kind of Lover for her.
