Laurie was not so easy to love. In fact, I was was pretty indifferent toward her from beginning to end. Although she did finally realize what was truly important in life, she took us on an adventure to get there.
The story had potential. But it somehow missed the mark, at least it did for me. I never felt a connection between Laurie ...more

Okay, I don't like crime thrillers and this turned out to have some of that which it could have done without, but I loved the way her hero wasn't the usual kind of guy who had his life together. In fact, he was a broken man, but a broken man with a steadfast love of who finds healing and the source of true love. What a neat perspective. Woven into the story you find encouraging truths.
I didn't like Laurie all the way through the book. She used Cal all the way through the book, knowing full well he loved her. Then when something huge happens, her way of thanking a man who wants all of her is to offer only her body?? Ugh. This was awful.
Cal was a wonderful man that deserved way better than this unfeeling user. A ...more
Twilight’s Cal was loveable and Laurie was frustrating, but together they made a good pair.
Overall, I enjoyed learning firefighting jargon and the symptoms and treatments of PTSD.
Although I enjoyed the story, there was a lot of repetition. I would actually give this book only 3 stars in comparison to her other books. This is my least favorite. But I went ahead with the 4, since I still really enjoy her style, and the happy ending wasn't as predictable as it could have been.
I'm still undecided on how I feel about these "Christian" novels though. They seem to be based on born again ideals, and the religious aspect is presented in a way that doesn't flow very smoothly with the rest of the story.
