About the book:
He saved her life…But will he destroy her dreams? Firefighter Rand Nelson is tall and handsome and has literally walked through an inferno for Beatrice Wilcox. He’s a hero…and that’s exactly the problem.
Beatrice knows all too well the risks of loving a man with a dangerous career. But when Rand’s report threatens her beloved children’s camp, Beatrice can’t refuse his offer of help…even though she knows they’re both playing with fire.
I love returning to Indian Lake for a couple of reasons, first of all it seems like a quaint town where neighbors are friends and secondly those neighbors and friends are characters that I really, really like.
This book was my favorite because I loved the storyline of the children’s camp and the camp director, Beatrice Wilcox is so sweet and caring it’s impossible not to like her. Another character that I found irresistible is firefighter, Rand Nelson. Oh my, but he had my heart as soon as he came to fight the dangerous and terrifying fire threatening the camp and the lives of one of the boys at the camp.
Honestly, I felt bad for Beatrice as she felt the fear of losing everything that she loved and worked so hard for but at the same time I felt her anger toward Rand was misplaced since he was doing his job and filing the necessary paperwork of his findings regarding the fire. Given the circumstances I could understand why Beatrice behaved the way she did because the kids at her camp mean everything to her and she means the world to them, too. Out of all of the kids at the camp, Chris and Eli melted my heart and their story quickly became my favorite part of the book. I desperately wanted a happy ending for them as much as I wanted one for Beatrice and Rand.
This book is filled with lovely, caring characters who live their lives giving so much of themselves to others and basically making their community a better place. At times this is an emotional read but there are some fun and happy times throughout.
If you aren’t familiar with the work of Catherine Lanigan I recommend this book to you. If you are already fan, then you will definitely want to pick up a copy of this sweet, Harlequin Heartwarming book.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
