Love.....From the Ashes.

This is a Christian romance that is a perfect blend of suspense, mystery, romance, and faith. It is a believable story and I appreciate the fact that the author put a lot of research into firefighting and investigating fires. The story shows real tragedy in life, the true emotions that arise from grief, and how God is there to help us through struggles if we ask Him. The romance builds ‘from the ashes’ and progresses into a love that’s so innocently tender that you can’t help but smile.

I love a book where the narration doesn’t get in the way of the book. I have to give a shout out to Leonor A Woodworth for doing a great job narrating this story. She enhanced the story’s enjoyment and made this book a pleasure t listen to. ;-)

If you are looking for a great 4.5 star faith based book then give this one a try. I will be keeping a look out for more by this author.

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audiobookboom.

Positive Vibes

From a horrible childhood tragedy and the resulting guilt, a young woman has suffered several setbacks in her quest to make it right. Sadie is forced to reconcile that tragedy as she returns to Emerald Point, Missouri to investigate a suspicious fire. This is where she grew up. She knows these people. These people love her. But after learning the truth, Sadie can’t stand to be there.

Quinn is the new police chief who lost his wife and decided to make a change and try small town life. He falls in love with Sadie at first sight but can’t reconcile her sweet nature and solidly religious family with her refusal of all things God. Can he help Sadie return to God so they can be together?

This book is more than a little sappy but I enjoyed it all the same. Sadie is a truly good person and Quinn is just about a saint. Sadie’s family is funny, too, so it is a good mix of humor and the serious subjects of religion and survivor’s guilt. Worth a read if you are searching for some positive vibes or just a feel good story. There is good character development and a depth that has merit.

In addition, the narration by Leonor Woodworth is well done. She manages to do a lot of voices in a unique and separate way so you never get lost on who is speaking and she really brought Sadie to life. I listened on 1.5 speed.

I received this book through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.

Well written Christian Romantic Suspense

Would you listen to Fire and Ash again? Why?

Yes. It was an easy listen. I am a fan of Ms. Patrick's writing. She develops her characters thoroughly and I feel like I know them in the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire and Ash?

I liked the scene with the bug/beetle in the garage (Quinn and Sadie)

Any additional comments?

Loved this book!

Fire and Ash is the second book that I have listened to by author Anne Patrick and I look forward to many more. My favorite genre is Christian Fiction Suspense and this book filled the bill! There's the mystery with romance along with faith. I love reading or listening to a book that makes me feel good about my Christian faith without the feeling of being preached to. I will be looking for more books by Anne Patrick as well as books narrated by Leonor A Woodworth, who did an amazing job giving voice to the characters.

Clean read with lots of action

I really enjoyed this audio book. After just returning two books without finishing them due to excessive bad language and graphic sex. I really appreciate that this story contains mystery, suspense, humor and romance, and the author realizes that I can figure out someone is a bad person because they do bad things without having them use the "f word" every other sentence. Plus healthy as well as unhealthy families are portrayed and God is realistically portrayed rather than blamed for all bad events. I highly recommend it!
