From the title, you can probably guess that this book is about firefighters. For this type of book, it is decently done--and it is a clean romance, which for me is a plus. It's not as well done as some in that I didn't really connect with the characters. Megan Rocklin is a widow whose husband was killed during a wildfire. She's vowed to never again love someone whose career is in a dangerous profession. I can certainly understand the pain Megan has at losing a husband she loved and in not wanting to repeat that if she can avoid it. Thankfully, Megan inherited a diner from her husband's side of the family (I think before the husband died) . In fact, she's the only restaurant in the small town of Minoa. For this reason, the new forest manager, Jared Marshall, seeks her out to provide food on site for crews brought in to fight forest fires. Megan's kids, June and Caleb, were the characters who resonated most with me. I could identify with June's standoffish-ness when it came to a new man in her mom's life, but I was also glad to see that she could accept it for the right man. Both kids had the bluntness and honesty of young children which led to some awkward moments in the plot. But I grew tired of the tired-and-true genre plot device of denying the attraction because of some reason from the past. Megan brings up the "I don't want to marry a firefighter" over and over again both to herself and to others--so much so that I was ready to throw the book at her if I could--I mean it's obvious that they are going to get together by the end--I'm just sorry it took a time of such extreme danger for Megan to realize her true feelings for Jared.
