This is a really sweet romance. The kind that makes you smile and sigh and feel gooey inside. But it's not so sweet that it's nauseating like you've eaten too much candy. Paula and Clint are very likeable so I was eager to see how they'd handle the obstacles on their road to their happily ever after. The plot is character driven. There's lots of internal dialouge and introspection that allows us to grow along with the characters. As always Mrs. Martin brings a maturity to her characters and and ...more

Rescued By The Firefighter is the third book in the Sisters Series by Gail Gaymer Martin. I've not read the other two books in the series yet, Her Valentine Hero and The Firefighter's New Family, but just went online and ordered both of them. This book is easy to read and nothing gets confusing by not having read the other two first. So don't feel that you have to get and read them first before you can read this one. It is just fine as a stand alone novel.

AWESOME! WONDERFUL! REALLY ENJOYED BOOK #3 of the "Sisters Series".....sad to see the series end. This series definitely deserves a ten star rating instead of just a five! They all were so very well written...the type of books that are so hard to lay down! The main character, Paula had so much baggage in her past that it was hard for her to accept the love and consideration of other people thus causing some problems along the way in making commitments and wise choices in her life. Gail shows us ...more

Rescued by the Firefighter is Paula and Clint's inspirational and compelling story of forgiveness.

In the beginning I had a hard time getting into the story because of Paula. She had built up a wall around herself not letting anyone in or close to her. I began to get closer to her when she started taking the wall down and letting you get closer as she began to open up about her loveless childhood, her resentment and anger at her mother over her childhood and relationships with men ending in disap

Gail Gaymer Martin's "Rescued by the Firefighter” is the third and last book in her 'Sisters' series. Even though this is part of a series, it can stand alone as the author provides enough of her previous characters' stories for you to understand this one. If you didn't read “Her Valentine Hero” and “The Firefighter's New Family” before this book, I think you may want to read those afterwards.

The characters are very real and believable. Both Paula and Clint are carrying a lot of baggage into th
Apr 22, 2014 Sandy marked it as gave-up-on
I was confused by this book from page one and only made it about halfway through. Neither of these characters had any business being in a relationship and only pursued it because of a physical attraction or some kind of spark we're supposed to believe they had. They've not even spent five minutes alone together and are already worried about whether or not they should get married or have children. These Love Inspired stories always move faster than an intelligent person would go in real life, but ...more
Book 3

Paula Reynolds was really the cousin of sisters Ashley and Neeley, but since her mom died and she had nobody else, she was now considered their sister. She lived with their father while looking for a job and a place to live. Now that Ashley is married and she and her husband doesn't really want a rental, Paula has a chance to buy the house - if she can sell her mother's.

But these aren't the worst of her problems. The worst part is Paula's low self-esteem and trusting other people -
“Rescued by the Firefighter” by Gail Gaymer Martin is the third and final book in her 'Sisters' series and what a finish. Though this is part of a series, this is also a great stand alone book. We see prior characters and if there is anything important to know from either “Her Valentine Hero” or “The Firefighter's New Family” it is explained in this book so that no one is lost while reading this book.

One the things that I always look for in a book is the believability of what is happening in the
