Title: When the Smoke Clears
Author: Lynette Eason
Book blurb: As a member of the North Cascades Smokejumpers, Alexia Allen always takes care of the equipment that keeps her safe. So when she nearly dies in a fire due to equipment failure, she knows something is up. Ordered to take time off while the investigation continues, Alexia makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother's home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she's involved with murder, arson--and a handsome detective. But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she strives to remember and forgive her family history, she must also decide if the secret she's been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light.
Quick endorsement: This was the very first book I read by Lynette Eason…and from the beginning, I was hooked. The riveting combination of suspense and romance make this book impossible to put down! I have since devoured everything by Lynette that I can get my hands on and am eagerly anticipating the third book in this series.
