Into the Fire by Irene Hannon Book Review

About the Book:

Instinct only takes you so far. After that, you need proof.
But cunning killers hide their tracks.

As a former smokejumper, arson investigator Bri Tucker knows her way around fires. But after a mysterious blaze takes the life of a former colleague, Bri inherits a curious puzzle from him that raises questions about several fiery deaths. Someone, however, doesn't want her picking up where he left off in search of answers.

When she teams up with ATF Special Agent Marc Davis to solve the puzzle, the case heats up--as does the attraction between them. Sparks fly as the danger escalates, but will they manage to track down the person behind the mysterious deaths before their budding romance--and maybe even their lives--go up in flames?

In this pulse-pounding new series from the bestselling and award-winning queen of romantic suspense, you'll be swept up in a whirlwind of danger, mystery, and romance. Get ready to burn through the pages as Bri and Marc race to solve the puzzle and uncover the truth.

My Review:

Hannon has crafted another entertaining Christian romantic suspense with a good balance of relationship development and investigative procedure. Bri and Marc are well presented characters as they overcome previous issues to face the possibility of new romance. I really liked their commitment to their faith. I liked the murder plot revolving around fires. I learned how investigators might go about determining whether a fire was arson or not. While the villain might not have been a surprise, the motive was a mystery to me until near the end. And near the end was also a good dose of suspense.

This is the first in a new series and it is going to be a good one. I'll be watching for future novels to see how other heroes will face future challenges.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
