Very good

This was a very good, clean romantic suspense book. Twists and turns galore. It was nice to have to follow everything to figure out who the murderer was and why. Definitely worth the time!

amazing romantic suspense

An amazing well written romantic suspense. This clean engaging storyline had me addicted page after page with intrigue, romance, family drama, plenty of suspects, and lots of twists and turns. The characters are realistic, interesting, and well developed with loads of chemistry as they try to track down the arsonists suspect after suspect. I voluntarily read and reviewed this incredible ARC.

Captain Drake figures it out.

Romantic suspense is not my normal genre. That being said, this is well done and the killer is successfully disguised until the very end. There are several clues and red herrings to keep you guessing. Also a good love interest. Clean.

Finding love

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me in suspense & constantly trying to figure out “who done it” while wanting Makenna & Bubba to admit their feelings. The two main characters struggled with their feelings but kept their relationship professional until the end. Looking forward to the next book in the Fire Beach series.

An exciting and suspenseful mystery!

The premise for this story is really interesting - what a difficult decision that would be to make. I did wonder why the cops wouldn't have asked the FBI for help.

I also wondered why Makenna would let a civilian tag along on the investigation with her? I didn't think it was even allowed. (And going in to a confrontation without backup is a definite no. Would've worked better to give her a reason to have to go in without waiting)

The main characters were likeable, though their thoughts of attraction to each other seemed kind of stilted. Poor Matt/Bubba - I'd be paranoid & wondering about everybody, too. It would be awful

The suspense was built up well, with a steady pace.
The identity of the arsonist was a surprise - I did not guess it.

The ending leads into the next story - not a cliffhanger, per se, more like a brief sneak peek to the next book.

*Clean romance level: sweet kisses
*Religion: generically Christian, some talk of prayer but no preaching

[The author does a great job narrating her own book!]

don't play with Fire

You think something is done and over with but then it starts back up. What do you do. Matt has to be found so Kenna does just that and brings him back to town to help her work the case. What made the arsonist/murder start up again ? Can they find the person doing this? I receive books for free from the autho or publisher and freely give them my honest opinion of the story.

Excellent suspense and “who done it?”

Another great story by Lorana Hoopes! She’s a great author and narrator. The beginning of the book was well written and pulled me in. You thing you know early on who did it but things aren’t as they seem. Religious aspects and prayer are definitely present but the rest of the storyline keeps me wanting to read on. Can’t wait to read the next book!

Another good addition to the series


This story in the series is my favorite one up to now.
Five years ago, Bubba/Max had been a suspect in the fires that killed three women, until he was the victim. His family and friends were made to believe he had perished in the fire, hoping the killings would stop. But when they start after the 5 year hiatus, the woman that encouraged him to leave, Captain Makenna , reaches out to him and once again, Bubba is back home. Sadly, the fires and deaths continue.
As the danger heightens, so do the feelings between Bubba and Makenna. Will they be able to solve the murders and find love, or will the danger come between them?
Another well narrated story by the author and one worth your time.

Whodunnit with romance!

When the arsonist comes back to Woodville and begins to take lives, Captain Makenna Drake reaches out to the one person she thinks can help solve the case. Matt Fisher. aka Bubba moved to Fire Beach when he was cleared of the fires five years earlier, the only link being himself. Can he help Makenna find the culprit and keep Woodville safe? And what about his growing attraction of Makenna? Lorana Hoopes takes us on a wild ride of suspense and wonder as we move through an ever growing list of suspects. It's thrilling and exciting as we try to figure out who it is. Each person leads to more questions, plus we get the budding romance of Makenna and Matt! It's another wonderful addition to this series. Narrated by Lorana Hoopes, she brings it all to the table, letting us know exactly the way the story is to be told. She is a fantastic storyteller and I loved every minute of it!
