Kindling embersThe Ember Series - Book 1
Inspector Cassandra McCarthy never thought she’d be raising her two daughters alone, but her husband’s unexpected death forced her to find a career. Now working beside a retired Special Operations soldier and veteran fireman, she serves her small North Carolina town, protecting them from hazards they don’t understand. She loves what she does and trusts God to provide—until a series of unexplained fires hit too close to home.
This was a fantastic book! I loved it so much that I read it all in one sitting. What I liked: The characters were so real and likable, and I loved the teasing and comraderie between the primary and secondary characters who worked together investigating the fires in this book. The mystery, which built gradually from the beginning of the book to the end, kept me turning pages. I have another BIG reason why I like this book: Even though it is the first book in the “Embers” series, it is a stand-alone book with no questions unanswered at the end of the book (which is a pet peeve of mine.) What I didn’t like: The story was way too short, but since it is the first of a series, that gives me something to look forward to…..the next book in the series. Over all, I give this book five HUGE stars and highly recommend it to anyone loving the tease of a love story with a building mystery to match. I loved it! Great job, Carrie Daws!
