Publisher's Summary

As a female firefighter in a small town, Suzanne O’Connell finds herself trapped in a dangerous situation with two men. And when the stakes turn deadly, trusting the wrong man could put her life in jeopardy. 

She held the phone in front of her, feeling excitement, or something. When Marcus rested his hand over the phone, she thought he was going to take it from her. As she lifted her gaze to her brother’s, his expression was anything but friendly.

“Please do not be one of those girls,” he said. As a female firefighter in a small town, Suzanne O’Connell knows that every day will go one of two ways: Either nothing happens, or she suddenly finds herself in over her head. Firefighters never, ever say the words “It’s a quiet day!” - because that’s when all hell breaks loose, and their peaceful, easy day suddenly turns into their worst nightmare. 

This is exactly what happens to Suzanne when she finds herself trapped with Harold Waters, local law enforcement officer and her old flame, and fellow fireman Toby Chandler, who, according to everyone, is the kind of guy you want watching your back. In an unusual turn of events, the stakes turn deadly, and Suzanne discovers that trusting the wrong man could leave her life hanging in the balance.

Easy enough to pickup on its own

I havnt listened to the rest of the series but this one was easy enough to pickup on its own with enough background about the family to understand the dynamic.

This actually hit on some hard issues with I quite liked. Inter office relationship fails and lies.

Definitely an interesting listen. Solid three star listen.

Really Interesting

I have to say I really enjoyed this book far more than I have enjoyed books in the rest of the series. I really connected with the main character. She's really into this guy who couldn't bother to even try to pretend to be in a commitment with her. If that isn't bad enough, she's passed up on promotions in favor of him. This is a second chance romance. I really enjoyed the second chance part of the romance. It was really inspirational. Spoiler alert, the second chance isn't with the jerk.

who to trust

Suzanne Oconnell is a strong , fierce, firefighter. Toby, whom she trained and was promoted over her. When a dangerous fire popped up, she was trapped inside with Toby, and Harold Water, her former boyfriend. It was intense, and couldn't believe the mistakes that Toby was making. she was reprimanded for her speaking out. This is a story of who to trust, forgiveness, and a second chance of love.
Jason Markiewitz narration was very good I enjoyed listening to this story

Another Great Addition to the Series!

This is the fourth book in The O’Connells Series. I love this series! Suzanne’s story is fast-paced, and filled with suspense and twists and turns. Harold and Toby are both interesting and intriguing characters. Jason Markiewitz is a new narrator to me. I like his voice. He did a good job with the narration. I believe it is better to listen to it in order. This is an amazing and captivating series. #AudiobookObsession

Suzanne!

Something has to be said for a strong heroine. Suzanne has been seeing Toby, though their relationship at most times seems one sided. After training him, Toby is promoted above her. Fire breaks out and the two are trapped in the blaze with Deputy Harold Waters. Inept and unable to deal with the situation, it's clear how he had gotten his position. Now, someone has to take responsibility for the disaster, and it looks like there is a fall guy. Will Toby come clean? Will Suzanne take the wrap? And what happens when Toby finds out about Suzanne and Harold's previous relationship? This short is packed with suspense, romance, trust issues, corruption and family. It's another fun listen by Lorhainne Eckhart and is fantastic.

Jason Markiewitz is a new narrator to me. I enjoyed his performance with multiple voices easily distinguishable and his easy pace. I like how he built the relationships and suspense. It's a good listen and one you want to add to your O'Connell collection.

Trust

I enjoyed listening to this book and Jason Markiewitz did a great job.

Loved that Suzanne is a strong firefighter.
The story is centred around Suzanne, her hmm say boyfriend and firefighter Toby and Harold a police Deputy. When push comes to shove, the truth of character comes to light.

Great characters

Another great addition to the Series

The Quiet Day was a relatively quick, very entertaining, edge of the seat tale. After being caught in a blaze, which Toby should have been assigning the roles to his fellow fire fighters.
Suzanne O'Connell who has been seeing Toby and trained him is horrified at how inept he is and how unprofessional his actions are.
Things really heat up when she is trapped in the fire with the man from her past and Toby.
How does this end? You will have to listen to this entertaining addition to the series.

Jason Markiewitz Did a fabulous job with the narration. He injected plenty of intensity, and personality and did a great job representing the characters in his performance
