How great is this book? It should be studied by writers hoping to understand what makes a compelling read. Dialogue, plot, pacing, suspense and characters you care about. This book has them all.

R.E. Bradshaw sets the bar for thrillers, lesbian or mainstream. Excellent read.

After severing with her past at age 18, Molly Kincaid has never looked back. With the help of her foster parents, she has carved success after success leading to her own very lucrative private law practice. But on her 39th birthday, the past came calling again--in the form of a dying man's last whisper.

Molly House on Fire is an excellent and well-balanced mix of drama, romance, mystery and thriller. If the author's very popular Rainey Bell series is a little light on the romance, this one isn't.

Woah, I love how the mystery, thrill and romance all blend into one seamlessly. The only thing that has me cringing all the time is that all the main characters are so perfect and beautiful, like Hollywood beautiful, Hollywood perfect. Overly perfect. There's no sense of realism there. I like Before It Stains because that feels more real. Lol! Nonetheless, it was a good read and now I want to read about Rainey and Katie.

Recommended to Kathryn by: Listopia: Best F/F Romance Books
This is not a romance. It is an action/mystery book. The story itself is good if a bit too long for me. I lost interest in it and had to force myself to finish. Also, the comment: "I tell you, Molly. We have to get better control of our women." disgusted me and made this a butch book which I don't like. The only brief love scene was a couple kisses and an orgasm which also reminded me of being with men. It felt very awkward. I wonder if R.E. Bradshaw is not comfortable writing love scenes.

I'm sure that some of the North Carolina details peppered throughout the book will be lost on the majority of her readers, but RE Bradshaw sure nails this one when it comes to plot and characters. I never saw it the answer to the who-dun-it coming. Better than that (to me anyway because I'm a romance writer), Bradshaw writes characters you can fall in love with. Well worth the read.

Top notch, hot shot, lawyer, Molly Kincaid, is enjoying her comfortable privileged life until she receives a string of calls and emails. All stemming from her childhood home county. Unknown to Molly, these calls and emails are about to change her well ordered life forever.

Molly is going back to her roots. Back to a life she had long left behind in Dobbs county. A life she thought she would never have to re-visit again.

Unfortunately, Molly has no choice. She has to go back and face her past. She

Once again proving that love shows up when you least expect it. Good love story mixed with just a enough suspense and mystery.

Review written & published on

There's something to be said about the expression “Don’t judge a book by its cover” and the self-published Molly: House on Fire, by R.E. Bradshaw, is one of those books that require us to go beyond the cover to get a measure of how good they are. And frankly, with the somewhat uninspired title and a cover that pains the eyes, I didn’t go into the book with good expectations. It turned out, however, to be a solid mystery novel.

Letting go of the past

At last Molly get’s a book to herself. Instead of Molly having a walk on role to sue the pants off the miscreants this time Molly is centre stage as the past catches up with her.

Free of her love for Stephanie (read “Before it Stains”), Molly finds true love where she least expects it, back in the town where she was born. There ghosts from her past gather to prevent her finding out what really happened to her mum and Molly puts her life on the line to protect the one’s she l

This was a book I could not put down. I have read all her books and Molly has appeared in them and now to know her story is great. The great thing about it is, the characters from the other books appeared in this one. It make me think that I really know them. I was able to really get into the book. I felt as though I was there. Amazing. It had everything from fear, suspense, sadness, romance, humor and a whole lot of Molly. Thanks for telling her story. Now I can re-read the other books onnce ...more

I love, love, love Decky books. Decky is the nickname of the author, R.E. Bradshaw. I have read many of her stories. Her writing is enjoyable. She brings the reader into her worlds. We sit in on all the adventures. I hope someday her stories will become movies or television series. They are worth it!

What was most exciting about Molly: House on Fire? Characters from Ms. Bradshaw's previous novels appeared and are there to help out in this thriller. I love when authors do that.

The mystery kept me

I absolutely LOVED this book. Finally a great mix of thrill and romance. Most romance novels I've read that include an investigation of some sort, were pretty basic: it was obvious they were written by authors who didn't really know anything about what they were writing, or who used it only as the trigger for a hot love story. With House on Fire, I have to stay I was blown away. The action part is not just used as an excuse to put two people together. Everything is extremely convincing, the pace ...more

I highly recommend this book. It had humor, intrigue, mystery, love, likable characters and crazy ones. It reminded me of the "Lincoln Lawyer" meets "Cold Comfort Farm," and "Doc Hollywood." It has a lot going for it and yes, it has it's flaws, like the ending was over the top, but it was still an enjoyable read.

I must admit that not one of the books that I have read written by this author has ever disappointed me. This one was wonderful for those who have read her earlier works. The way she brings characters for her other books is a sweet surprise. Not that you need to read her earlier works to follow, but after reading this you may want to...

I really enjoyed it!

This book, people, read it.

So, I just read it for I think the 12th time. And each and every time, I get sucked into the story of Molly and what she has to come to terms with. And each and every time I get all emotional. I don't know why.

I thought the Rainy Bell books were the best I have ever read, but Molly's book is better.

For me, this is a classic.

What an amazing read. I just finished this book and the only thing I want to do is read it again. The perfect mix of drama, mistery and romance. A magnificent main character, a great group of secondary characters, a beautifil romance and a story that will leave you wanting more. 5 stars!

A great book and what a compelling character Molly Kincaid is. I fell under her spell in Waking Up Gray & Before It Stains and have now downloaded the first Rainey Bell books as she features in those as well as another of RE Bradshaw's characters I am looking forward to knowing

I have read many Bradshaw's books but for some reason I kept putting this one off. I am so glad I finally read it. I loved the storyline and characters. I really think Molly, Leslie, Randy, Tammy, and her husband would make a good mystery solving team.

Since then, her novels ranging from the popular romance, Waking Up Gray, to the Lambda Literary Award Finalists, thriller Rainey Nights and mystery Molly: House on Fire, ...more
