Firestorm by Lisa Tawn Bergren


















Firestorm by Lisa Tawn Bergren is the 6th book in her Full Circle series.  I haven't read the previous books in the series.  I picked this one up because I liked the description and have enjoyed Lisa Tawn Bergren's Christian fiction in the past.

In Firestorm, Reyne Oldre, a fire scientist, meets Logan McCabe, a smokejumper.  Reyne has never desired to have a relationship with a forest fire fighter because Reyne is still fighting her own fears of the forest fires.  She was a captain of a fire team that lost several members in a huge forest fire. But as Reyne and Logan develop a relationship, Reyne has to learn to trust God and come face to face with her fears of the fire.

This was a light easy read.  Don't read it looking for lots of depth.  The characters are enjoyable.  The story is interesting.  I didn't have any problems reading this one without having read the previous books in the series.  I enjoyed Reyne and Logan's relationship. There are some times that things seem to be dragged out.  Just when you think things are resolved for our hero and heroine, it is not to be.  There are some sort of sappy parts.  Logan is quite the romantic and seems a little too perfect sometimes.  But, overall, it is an enjoyable, light read.

At the end of the novel, there is a short novella, Sandcastles.  I thought it was just going to b a preview into the next book.  But, it is infact a stand alone novella.  It follows the story of Matt, one of the secondary characters in Firestorm, as he heads into a relationship for the first time after the death of his wife.  The story moved a little too quickly.  But, I was interested in knowing what was going to happen to Matt and his daughter after Firestorm, so it was a good, quick read.

I give this one a 3.5 stars and a G rating for a good, clean read.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
