What’s it about?

When Cassie Hanwell is transferred from an Austin, Texas fire station to a small fire station in Massachusetts, to be near her ailing mother, she is not happy about it.  And neither are all the firemen in her new old-school station.  What she leasts expects is to find herself falling for someone.  She never falls for anyone…

What did it make me think about?

Firefighters and how much we owe them for their service.

Should I read it?

So sometimes after a long serious book I like to pick up something light.  This has been on my shelf for a few years.  It was a Book of the Month favorite but I never seemed to get around to it. But it looked like it would be light and quick and it was.  Okay- so this was a just a feel-good, hokey romance novel, but I did enjoy it.  It was just like eating comfort food.  You know it is going to be predictable and you also know you are going to enjoy every bite (or in this case every page)!

Quote-

“Firefighters are, on average, very funny people.  All the sorrow you absorb in that job makes you funnier.  You have to balance out the pain somehow, and joking around is one of the best things about the job.  There’s so much death in that world, but laughter is life.”
