Overview

Yellowstone Series by Linda Jacobs

In Summer of Fire, it is 1988, and Yellowstone Park is on fire. Among the thousands of summer warriors battling to save America's crown jewel, is single mother Clare Chance. Having just watched her best friend, a fellow Texas firefighter, die in a roof collapse, she has fled to Montana to try and put the memory behind her. She's not the only one fighting personal demons as well as the fiery dragon threatening to consume the park. There's Chris Deering, a Vietnam veteran helicopter pilot, seeking his next adrenaline high and a good time that doesn't include his wife, and Ranger Steve Haywood, a man scarred by the loss of his wife and baby in a plane crash. They rally around Clare when tragedy strikes yet again, and she loses a young soldier to a firestorm. Three flawed, wounded people; one horrific blaze. Its tentacles are encircling the park, coming ever closer, threatening to cut them off. The landmark Old Faithful Inn and Park Headquarters at Mammoth are under siege, and now there's a helicopter down, missing, somewhere in the path of the conflagration. And Clare's daughter is on it. In Rain of Fire, geologist Kyle Stone watched her family die in the 1959 Hebgen Lake Earthquake near Yellowstone. Fighting a lifetime of fears, she is one of the scientists with a finger on Yellowstone's pulse. When a new hot spring appears overnight in the park and a noted naturalist is scalded to death, Kyle mounts an expedition into the Yellowstone backcountry to unravel the mystery. Accompanying her are Ranger Wyatt Ellison, former student and friend, and Dr. Nicholas Darden, volcanologist and former lover. More than just a volcano is heating up. Amid personal conflict, earthquakes uprooting the land, and poison gases killing wildlife, Kyle finds herself in the unenviable position of convincing park officials to evacuate Yellowstone before tens of thousands of people die. As the earth shudders, Kyle must defeat her darkest terror simply to survive. In Lake of Fire, Yellowstone National Park provides the setting for love and adventure as a young Indian attempts to hide his heritage and adopt the life of a businessman, while an heiress traveling from Chicago conceals her wealthy background. A twist of fate brings them together, and the revelation of both their secrets brings them even closer. Packed with excitement, the story follows the couple as they overcome jealousy and violence while fighting to survive in the wilderness.

This book has a slow start, which is weird since it takes place in such a dramatic setting, in such a dramatic time. The characters eventually fleshed out and started getting more compelling as the book got to the middle, but that is along time. It picks up and starts becoming more interesting as it goes a long. The main character is a woman fire fighter up to work the forest fire, and her two romantic interests, a forest ranger with a sad past and bad knees, and a married, liar, chopper pilot. There is also a sullen teen who finally sees the error of her ways. This is the kind of book you finish on a vacation because you can't run to the bookstore and you already have it.
