I really enjoyed the strength and confidence of both the female and male lead. I have a personal connection to smoke jumpers so of course it hit home there. But I really loved that how the two were brought together.
Her watching her father jump.
The fire scene's are great but her kicking butt at the bar worked for me!
Lead female. Not a dainty little petit buxom blond for once!
This was not Nora's steamiest book but that was kind of what I liked because the sex seamed a bit more plausible then some of her others, and I have read a lot of hers. Also this is a story that appealed to me personally. I really enjoyed it!!
The backdrop of jumping out of planes into forest fires was a new venue for me; coupled with murder, mayhem, lust and love you've got a winning formula. This was one of those books you simply cannot put down. Highly recommended to anyone that likes a good story with lots of intrigue.
Wow...if I had to pinpoint something in particular, I'd have to say the drama of fighting forest fires with an emphasis on those that jump from planes into the fires. That backdrop really added a unique element to an already fabulous story.
Rebecca did a great job of differentiating the characters. Also, her voice appealed to me and never got in the way of the story.
I definitely would have if I'd had the luxury of doing so.
I was totally consumed by the drama of the fire jumpers. Fascinating reading. Nora did an amazing job weaving the entire story around this original backdrop.
I would recommend this book to a friend.
The interaction of all of the characters was intriguing and intertwined. I especially liked how they developed and grew. The ending was a great surprise to me.
No I haven't heard her.
The ending was exciting. Also, when Ironman's girlfriend and daughter came to terms.
Overall, I found this to be one of the more interesting N.R. novels. I really liked the strong female lead and as always, just the right amount of humor. I listened to this audiobook over the course of a three day cross-country drive and it really made the trip more bearable. As I write this, I am trying to remember if I noticed anything about the narrator and interestingly, I don't. In my opinion, the narrator's voice and style should almost fade away so you can focus on and enjoy the story - Rebecca Lowman definitely did that. I would absolutely consider another audiobook with her narration.
So in short, good story and good narration.
I think the reason I enjoy listening to Nora Roberts is that whilst the romance is a key theme in the book her female characters are so strong in their own right and Rowan Trip was no different.
I have not read the print version of Chasing Fire but the audio version was outstanding! I loved all the twists and turns the story took and the narrator was very good.
Gulliver was my favorite character because he was such a calm and steady man in the book. Very trust worthy and reliable and honest. He made me laugh and his character made this book a great listen.
My favorite scenes were the scenes with Rowan and her father. They were so well written I could get lost in the story. Hours passed like minutes and since I listen while working at my second job (cleaning offices) I loved the distraction!
Rowan's father. Because I never had a dad like that and I would want to pick his brain a bit and seek advise from him if he were real!
This book had everything. Romance, mystery, and action. I couldn't ask for more!
Anything to pass the time on the daily commute...
At first I thought that the fire jumping would be a secondary plot, more of a complement to the story. However, the fire jumping and the story of the building relationship are so intertwined that I can't wait to hear what's next. Normally I only listen to the books when I'm driving, but I found myself listening to this story at home trying catch a couple. Of minutes here and there. Sometimes I am bothered when there are too many twists in a story.... While this book has several different twists and story lines going on at the same time, I haven't been lost yet and the twists just add to what is already a great story. Highly recommended. One of Nora Roberts' best yet.
I like Nora but this one took way too long to get going
Liked the father's love story

I did recomment this audiobook to my sister and she loved it. It is a fast paced interesting story. I commute 2 hours each way 4 days a week and like I told my sister, it's a really good thing when a book is so interesting that you can't wait to get into the car to hear more!
I loved them all but our heroine was my favorite because of her courage and strength.
No I have not, but I would again. I would even perhaps seek her out. She did a beautiful job.
The title is perfect the way it is.
A truly enjoyable read. Great for the summer. But we are coming out of winter and I absolutely loved it!
Nora Roberts has done it again, she gives us a look at men and women that risk their life to save our forestry from fires, and she added a liltte love and suspence to excite .
Well worth the read you will not want to put it down.
