Publisher's Summary

From the internationally bestselling author Catherine McKenzie comes an evocative tale of two women navigating the secrets and lies at the heart of a wildfire threatening their town.

After a decadelong career combating wildfires, Elizabeth has traded in her former life for a quieter one with her husband. Now she works as the local arson investigator in a beautiful, quaint town in the Rockies. But that tranquil life vanishes when she and her husband agree to divorce and a fire in nearby Cooper Basin begins to spread rapidly. For Elizabeth, containing a raging wildfire is easier than accepting that her marriage has failed.

For Elizabeth's ex-friend Mindy, who feels disconnected from her husband and teenage children, the fire represents a chance to find a new purpose: helping a man who has lost his home to the blaze. But her faith is shattered by a shocking accusation.

As the encroaching inferno threatens the town's residents, Elizabeth and Mindy must discover what will be lost in the fire, and what will be saved.

    "Smoke by Catherine McKenzie"

    This book was realistic, wholesome, and for the most part excellently written. It could be read by a kid with out causing any parent to worry about content. My only complaint would be that it does move a bit slowly in places. I expected a different ending but am not sure if this is good or bad. You figure it out since it is worth hearing.

    "rich lady blah"

    I cannot decide if it was the content or the voices that made me hate the women in the book so much. by chapter 12 I threw in the towel

    "Great story"

    I really appreciate the story line. I had a great deal in common with Beth. I couldn't not listen. I had to know how it ended. And a happy ending.

    Story
    "Interesting subject, too much overwritten drama"

    A dear friend who was a fire tower lookout for the U.S. Forest Service passed away recently. He was instrumental in protecting the Lincoln Montana Valley, as he was first to spot and report fires. There was nothing more important to Dan than the safety of the firefighters and his community. I started this book hoping it would help me to remember Dan and his world, but it read like chick-lit (not my favorite). There is some fire information and firefighting, but it was overwhelmed by far too much overwritten drama in my opinion.

    "Meh..."

    other reviews on this book were good. Maybe I'm just hard to please. The narration was good, but the book and storyline overall was not one that I was in a hurry to finish.

    "interesting storyline"

    The story was interesting. Timely in that it dealt with bullying, the roll of cellphones and the internet, how they affect teenagers lives and women in more adventurous careers. The different characters were well-defined and easily identified as they appeared back into the story. It kept me interested and entertained even though I didn't find any one charactor especially likeable nor could I identify closely with them.

    Story
    "Vast English Language"
    Would you try another book from Catherine McKenzie and/or the narrators?

    The narrators were good. I love Cassandra Campbell. Even though I listened to the entire book I would not read anymore of Catherine McKenzie's books. Why, you ask? Bad language, it offends me greatly! The English language is so vast. So why revert to foul words? I won't recommend her books because of that reason.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Wasn't what I expected.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The main narrators are great. Danny Campbell was distracting he was so loud. First time I've listened to him.


    Do you think Smoke needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it would just drag it Out too much.

    Story
    "Trite, "

    melodramatic, redundant, at times boring and too long. Easily figured out this story nothing mysterious or thrilling about it. I listened to Fractured, which is a good listen and thought I'd try this one - Smoke. It did not deliver in the same way, reminded me of a poor Lifetime movie. This is too 'girly' for my taste, and then throwing in ballet moves,OMG, growing up I hated ballet, more fun playing cops and robbers with the boys. Obviously I will not be listening to anything else by this author.
