SAFE IN THE FIREMAN'S ARMS
Fireman to the Rescue
Running away from her sheltered life, Maggie Jones wants to start fresh. Instead, she finds trouble in Paradise, Colorado. Within days she's on the radar of fire chief Jake MacLaughlin. And when her family starts to play matchmaker, Maggie's plans for a quiet life are turned upside down. Though he's the small town's most eligible bachelor, Jake is far from a playboy. The widower isn't interested in dating. But when Maggie transforms from mousy to magnificent, and suitors start lining up, the fireman can't resist a rescue. Pretending to be a couple rekindles their spark for life…and for love.
Romantic comedy at its best. I love the way Radcliffe puts a spin on scene endings that leave me chuckling out loud. But there are some lovely heart-tugging scenes as well. The perfect combination for a captivating read.
Best secondary character ever -- Bitsy Harmony. There's nothing bitsy about the impact she makes on the story...or the whole town of Paradise for that matter. According to Bitsy, "If you came here for quiet, fine. If you came here for privacy, well, good luck." And that's the problem Maggie runs into. There's plenty of folks in town who aren't shy of sticking their nose in her business and that's one of the things that makes this read so much fun.
Maggie and Jake don't stand a chance with what seems like the whole town conspiring against them (with Bitsy in the lead, of course.) And really, who can resist a fire fighting hero who rescues kittens? Not me, that's for sure! The kind of book that keeps you smiling long after the story is over.
