I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
I learned a lot about fire fighting and parachuting in this average Nora Roberts romance. The character development wasn't bad nor was the plot. It's a shame, for me, though. I used to love reading Nora Roberts but the last couple of years every book seems just about the same.
This is another average Roberts book--her fans will rave and rate it 5 stars. Others, like me, will just sigh and roll our eyes. Whichever you are-Enjoy this summer beach book and hope for something better to come.
This story is great. Smoke jumpers make for an exciting topic. The romance part of the novel is also excellent, even for a guy. I really enjoyed the narrator. She was able to modulate her voice for different characters consistently leading to the illusion that the characters were actually speaking. This book made me a fan of Audible Books.
I don't know as I didn't read the book but I did enjoy the audio version while I was knitting!
Ella was my favorite character. I really loved her outlook on life and the way she brought Lucas out of his shell.
Her voice captures your attention and her character voice changes seemed to really set the tone for each character.
I laughed quite a bit at Marg!
I have always loved Nora Roberts' books and I really enjoyed Rebecca Lowman's narration so will look for her as narrator in Audible books I purchase in the future.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
This is now in my top 5 favorite books. Great characters, fast story and enough detail about the people who put out fires that I really felt I was there. I did figure out 'who dunnit' about 2/3 through, but that didn't spoil the story. This is one I'll listen to again.
Chasing Fire with Rebecca Lowman's narration is at the top of my favorites list. I am a Nora Roberts fan, but Rebecca gives a wonderful performance, providing distinctive voices and adding another level of enjoyment to the book
I really enjoyed the sub-plot of Lucas and Ella's December love story.
Sometimes actors or narrators bring a voice to a character that's opposed to what's in your head when you read a book. Ms. Lowman's performance felt spot on. Though I really like Roberts' work, she can rerun characters, language and relationship types. But Ms. Lowman made it all fresh and believable.I felt she gave each character distinction. I really enjoyed her performance.
Where there's smoke, there's fire
I am a truck drive for P&S Transportation. I listen to audio books all the time. I love a good mystery and action books. Some but not all of my favorite authors are JD Robb,Clive Cussler and many more.
In three words Thrilling, Realistic and Fun
What I liked best about the story was the detail in the Smoke Jumper's duties and the action.
Have not heard Rebecca Lowman before I don't think but I thought she had a great voice and a smooth cadence. Very easy on the ear.
I am not sure I could pick one moment out in the book that moved me. The whole book was a moment for me.
The top 2 or 3 of all.
This story took so many unexpected turns, it kept me interested.
I liked the father the best.
The beginning (prologue) is a bit disjointed in my opinion, and though I love Rebecca Lowman as a narrator, it seemed like she tried to get it all out in one breath. After you get into the story though, things settle down and the pace gets back to normal. The characters were great, and I laughed out loud at several points of dialogue.
The interaction between the hero and heroine was done very well, and I thought you got a good glimpse of both their background stories. I even enjoyed the secondary characters, especially Lucas (the heroine's father) and his story.
I would definitely recommend this one to other readers.
Lucas. He reminded me a lot of my dad. Strong, silent and an absolute adoration for his daughter.
This narrator has too much of a monotone voice. She seemed to have trouble projecting emotion and this story has a lot of emotions in it.
I think I would have been better off reading this in book form, rather than listening to it. The narrators voice took too much away from, what I think, is a very exciting story with very powerful characters.
