Christian romance about firefighters fails to bring the heat
Apr 13, 2009
A Perfect Match by Susan May Warren in the third book in the Deep Haven series, but it's no trouble to slip into this book without being familiar with the first two. EllieKarlson has just started as the interim fire chief of Deep Haven, Minnesota when she ends up rescuing the town's pastor, Dan Matthews. Sparks quickly fly between the two, and they each for their own reasons do their best to quench them. Warren uses lots of metaphors about fire, without ever overdoing it. Her detail about the work that firemen do is fascinating and adds to the story's interest. This is not one of Warren's best books, and as it is a reprint of a 2004, and I can see how her writing has flourished since then. The plot involving arson seems a bit forced and the perpetrator is obvious. However, I always love how Warren weaves faith through the very fabric of every story and then uses it to make her characters grow and come to life. It's a good romance with plenty of heat.
