[ Book ] ⚖ Falling for the Fireman (Gordon Falls, #1) ♅ There S Something Achingly Familiar About The Look In Fire Marshal Chad Owens S Eyes Widowed Mom Jeannie Nelworth Knows Firsthand What It Is Loss, Hurt And Yes Bitterness Ever Since The Fire That Changed Their Lives, Jeannie S Young Son Has Borne That Same Look, Pushing Everyone Away So She S Grateful When Chad Tries To Get Through To The Boy With The Help Of His Trusty Fire Station DogBut The Man Who S All About Safety And Prevention Keeps Himself Protected From Loving And Losing Again Seems As If Jeannie Will Have To Add His Kind, Guarded Heart To Her Rebuilding Efforts Another great story with Pleiter s trademarkwit and insight Spiritual, without being heavy handed. It has been a good long time since I rated a Harlequin over 2 stars For the first time in a long time I found a book that had believable characters with believable baggage and believable motivations And not only that, there were no dumb glaring errors of science because the author chose to a do her homework, and b adequately skirt the issue to avoid making moronic suppositions that other romance authors do instead of doing their homework I liked that Nick was a believable teenager I liked that Jeannie was desperately trying to rebuild her life after two tragedies and still stay strong for her son I liked the fact that Chad was willing to do the hard things that Jeannie couldn t I liked that all three of these characters not only strong in their own ways, but when another character faltered, they were there to help pick them up.My only real niggle with this book is when Nick hits his tipping point and Jeannie flips out Don t get me wrong, it s not okay for Nick to have done what he was doing, but Jeannie literally lost her mind thinking Nick turned into a complete delinquent like he had stolen a car, or mugged a little old lady, or killed the neighbor s cat In this instance, the reaction didn t fit the crime, so to speak. A heartwarming read about real characters with real issues I m looking forward to continuing this series. I liked this novel which is a story of two people who have been hurt by the loss of loved ones It was a fun read. I m not a fan of contemporary romance, Christian or not But I needed a book for a challenge, and when I saw this on the list I remembered how much I liked the author s Homefront Hero, so I gave it a try, and I m glad I did as it turned out to be a cut above average.Pleiter gives the reader what they re looking for in this kind of book characters you can like, a plot that moves along well, romance that develops over time But she adds something that some Christian writers can t seem to manage a realistic examination of faith In this book we have three people who are trying to recover from tragedies in their life They pick different ways to cope, but all of them are realistic Having experienced real tragedies in my life, I dislike so called Christian books that make faith look simple, like all you need to do is go to church once and pray a prayer and everything is fine Faith can be confusing, and healing takes time Pleiter seems to know that, and in this book she tells the story of three people who are on a journey of healing It s not a depressing story, of course, but it has enough truth in it to earn my respect and praise I liked it.
