"Heaven's Fire" may be what Pasquale Firenze, patriarch of the family-owned Firenze Fireworks, calls his painting of the night sky with light, color and sound, but television producer Wendy "Jake" Jacobus has more practical considerations than her featured showman's artistry. Or so she believes, until Pasquale is killed--live on-camera--by an explosion, and Jake is hurled ...more

I’m not a newbie to the writings of Sandra Balzo. I’ve read her award winning short stories and the first book in her Maggie Thorsen series. In full disclosure, Ms. Balzo was kind enough to send me a copy of her latest e-book when I expressed an interest in reading it. “Heaven’s Fire” didn't disappoint me. The story starts off with a bang, literally, and the momentum kept building as I tried to determine the villain responsible for the death of a beloved patriarch at a fireworks demonstration. ...more

Wendy “Jake” Jacobus, a TV producer for TV8 looked on in horror as she monitored the cameras at Lake Days Fireworks in Liberty, Wisconsin. Firenze Fireworks is in charge of the display and the misfire that Jake just witnessed has taken the life of Pasquale Firenze, head of the company. Not only is Pasquale killed but his son-in-law Ray Guido is washed off the barge by the wash of water created by the explosion. There is no sign of Ray's body.

I don't normally like books with multiple narrators-- but I'll make an exception for Heaven's Fire, because I think Sandra Balzo did a terrific job of managing them. I was fascinated by the stuff about how fireworks were made, and I think the characters, pace and plotting here were all terrific. Overall, a great read!

Far better quality than most freebies I've downloaded. Really enjoyed it and didn't feel compelled to highlight much of anything for errors!
