"Firestorm" by Lisa Tawn Bergren

Firefighting is a harrowing and courageous profession, and fire jumping takes that job to new heights of danger. In Book 6 of her "Full Circle Series," Lisa T. Bergren takes us into the world of the courageous men and women who fight the fires and gives us a glimpse of their hopes, dreams, worries, losses, and loves. 

Reyne has a lot of memories to deal with. When her team was fighting a wildfire, the wind shifted causing them to take refuge under their protective sheets. The loss of four team members that day has weighted so heavily on her, that Reyne has taken a job as a fire researcher, safely studying fires from a distance. Her debilitating fear has taken her from the job she loved to one behind a desk. Enter Logan, a smoke jumper. He knows the dangers, but feels the benefits of his work outweigh the risks, even when Reyne tries to convince him to take an inside job. There is more than friendship here! Logan has to find a way to convince Reyne to trust God and let Him take care of them. Will Reyne listen and, in turn, face her fears? Will she ever work a fire line again? Will Reyne's friends, Beth and Rachel, be able to help her move beyond her believed responsibility for the loss of team members? 

Wow! There was so much going on in this book. I found myself going through all kinds of emotions, feeling alot of Reyne's fear and uncertainty. It is always nice for me to read a book with a great story - one that includes a love story - that I can recommend to others. While I haven't read any other books in the series, I will look for them now. If you enjoy books that keep you on the edge of your seat at times, and let you enjoy conversation and friendship between characters at times, this is the book for you! I received my free review copy from the Blogging For Books program for an honest review.
