Publisher's Summary

From the internationally bestselling author Catherine McKenzie comes an evocative tale of two women navigating the secrets and lies at the heart of a wildfire threatening their town.

After a decadelong career combating wildfires, Elizabeth has traded in her former life for a quieter one with her husband. Now she works as the local arson investigator in a beautiful, quaint town in the Rockies. But that tranquil life vanishes when she and her husband agree to divorce and a fire in nearby Cooper Basin begins to spread rapidly. For Elizabeth, containing a raging wildfire is easier than accepting that her marriage has failed.

For Elizabeth's ex-friend Mindy, who feels disconnected from her husband and teenage children, the fire represents a chance to find a new purpose: helping a man who has lost his home to the blaze. But her faith is shattered by a shocking accusation.

As the encroaching inferno threatens the town's residents, Elizabeth and Mindy must discover what will be lost in the fire, and what will be saved.

    "Smoke by Catherine McKenzie"

    This book was realistic, wholesome, and for the most part excellently written. It could be read by a kid with out causing any parent to worry about content. My only complaint would be that it does move a bit slowly in places. I expected a different ending but am not sure if this is good or bad. You figure it out since it is worth hearing.

    "Great story"

    I really appreciate the story line. I had a great deal in common with Beth. I couldn't not listen. I had to know how it ended. And a happy ending.

    "Interesting subject, too much overwritten drama"

    A dear friend who was a fire tower lookout for the U.S. Forest Service passed away recently. He was instrumental in protecting the Lincoln Montana Valley, as he was first to spot and report fires. There was nothing more important to Dan than the safety of the firefighters and his community. I started this book hoping it would help me to remember Dan and his world, but it read like chick-lit (not my favorite). There is some fire information and firefighting, but it was overwhelmed by far too much overwritten drama in my opinion.
