Fire Investigator Sadie McGregor has been called to her hometown of Emerald Point, Missouri to investigate a suspicious fire which claimed the life of a local college student. By appearance the fire looks like the girl was just careless. What Sadie and Sheriff Quinn Harrington discover will not only affect those close to them, but will rock the entire community of Emerald Point and put Sadie’s life on the line.
Sadie’s life isn’t the only thing at stake. Struggling with the guilt of having been responsible for the fire that killed her family, when she was only seven, Sadie doesn’t feel she’s worthy of God’s love and forgiveness. Will Quinn be able to prove otherwise before it’s too late?
Unable to carry on a fire-fighter after being injured on the job, Sadie throws herself into her job as a fire investigation officer with a passion. Her latest case is a little too close to home, the town she grew up in and where her family still live to be precise. No one is going to get in her way, especially not the new and reportedly chauvinistic Chief of Police.
At first sight Quinn takes the fire-fighter in the burned out building to be a man. Only when she turns does he realise his mistake. When she calls the fire arson, he finds himself embroiled in a case that could end up costing him his career.
Ms. Patrick weaves an amazing story that plunges you into page after page of action. Each step of the arson investigation is meticulously detailed as Sadie and Quinn search for the truth. Along the way, they both put the pain of the past behind them. Quinn is a widower and a Christian. Sadie lost her entire family in a fire when she was a child. As Quinn falls for her, he wants to show her that God has a plan for her life and loves her.
A wonderful read, this book had me laughing and crying. True to life characters and vivid descriptions, along with comedy and heart stopping moments, make this a page turner you'll want to read again.
