Publisher's Summary

Blinded by the past, it takes a little fate and great faith to be liberated and set free. Where you fly is up to you....

After a bad divorce, Ashley returns to Hallbrook with her four-year-old son to regroup and start over. When her apartment catches fire and the fire department is called in, one of the first responders is David, her older brother’s best friend, and the man who dumped her without any reason when they dated in high school. She accepts his offer of a place to stay, knowing she could trust him with anything other than her heart.

David, a member of the White Mountain Fire Department, is tasked with the controlled burns needed in the NH National Forest after a particularly dry winter and spring. While out marking the territory with Kojak, his Dalmatian, he runs into Ashley, who’s on a mission and quick to tell him how to do his job. 

Ashley’s been called upon by the Audubon Society to verify the reported sighting of a pair of eagles and to look for a nest. The eagles are protected under federal law, but without proof they are nesting nearby, David has a job to do. A job that will protect the public far more than protecting an unverified eagle nest. Ashley will do anything to stop him, including seeking an injunction and rallying a protest. Just when David starts to compromise on both the controlled burn and his no-relationship rule, disaster strikes, reminding him why he made the rule in the first place. 

David soon realizes his mistake, but will Ashley give him a third chance? And is she does, will the third time be a charm?

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this and if you like contemporary fiction you'll want to listen to it.

The narrator did okay. Very clear. It did take a bit to get used to the constant jerkiness but that's better than monotone.

Loved it!

Good storyline and we'll developed characters. Also, I'm a sucker for second chances and am glad David and Ashley will potentially get a shot at theirs. There is a lot of past to get thru as well as current obstacles, will they be able to overcome all?

The narration was well done.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and I am voluntarily leaving this review.

A new perspective

Through previous experience David is not willing to risk love. It is understandable with how he has seen it turn out for his parents. He’s been in love with the same girl for a very long time.
Ashley is driven to get the perfect photo to further her career. She’s also determined to protect herself from a lost love.
I could never get the image of Ashley as a lovable main character. She’s egocentric and very selfish although it’s written off as if she is determined. Her hopes override everybody else and she’s quick to be defensive, sharp tongued and accusatory. Not every character needs to be loved in a book so I gave my four stars to the author for her talents in weaving an interesting tale.
The reader for Cory did a great job of a busy, inquisitive young child. Cory had some fun lines and kept the telling light and enthusiastic just like a child would be.
