Being a fire chiefs wife and my daughter being a firefighter mother, this book is so real for me. There are some many things outsiders don’t know or understand about what first responders go through.

Amy hits the nail right on the head this book. Love triangles, foul play and risks being taken every time the sirens go off. She also left us with a cliffhanger and I’m excited for the next book.
