I love the author's perception of courage, strength, love and the importance of family.

Thank you to NetGalley and Montlake Romance for an arc of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
I really enjoyed this book. But truthfully it was not what I was expecting. This book was so much more emotional than I was anticipating. I love books that make me smile and cry in the same story. And this one did!
The story takes place in 2016 in Creek Canyon, California (Southern California).
This book has both a male and female POV. The female is Parker (24). The ...more
Love can happen anytime…
I had no expectations as I began this story and didn’t realize how personal a story it was…
Parker was in the middle of a disaster and her focus, as it had been for a while, was keeping her family safe and their home in one piece. She’d barely been keeping things together as it was so this was. Faced with so many challenges, when Mother Nature threatened both, she did what she had learned to do. She dug deep to find the strength and will to do what needed to be done…

On the romance front this one is pretty much a typical romance. Not too steamy but not without spark either.
What I really enjoyed in the book was the sense of family and the various characters in the boo ...more
The characters and setting of this book are very well done. Just enough tension. Believable issues.
Loved this book and it's characters. I could not put it down, the story was fast paced and very interesting. Lots of love and goodness in these characters and some steamy moments with Colin and Parker all made this one of the most enjoyable reads during this time of quarantine.

She’s barely hanging on when a wildfire rips through the hills behind her house, threatening everything they own. Thankfully, the fire crews manage to get it under control, but the hillside is compromised now that the trees are gone. If a flood were to occur, it would wash away their home.

Since losing her parents two years ago, 26 year old Parker Sinclair has been doing a damn good job juggling all the flaming swords in her life: a 20 year old sister in college, her 17 year old brother who’s finishing up high school, a lousy part-time job that barely helps pay the bills, and an aging home on a large piece of property in the valley of Santa Clarita, California. When wildfires destroy the val ...more
This book should probably come with a disclaimer for Ms. Bybee's fans. It isn't the anticipated romance that she is so gifted and famous for. Although there is some romance in it, the story fits much more closely in the women's fiction genre. The reason is that the plot revolves around one woman's plight with saving her house, and her family against the fires and floods that hit her area and her home.
It's an extremely enlightening look at a subject that very few get the opportunity to be ...more
