In this charming listen, narrator Therese Plummer portrays Cassie Hanwell--a confident, talented firefighter whose solitary life is upended when her estranged mother asks her to relocate to Boston.A wonderful story of forgiveness, friendship, love, and hope. -- AudioFile

From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new audiobook about courage, hope, and learning to love against all odds.

Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she's seen her fair share of them, and she's a total pro at other people's tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to give up her whole life and move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own.

The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie's old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a lady on the crew--even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie, who doesn't seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can't think about that. Because love is girly, and it's not her thing. And don't forget the advice her old captain gave her: Read More chevron_right

   Stereotypical
I picked this book club pick for the month of September. I had high hope for this novel considering that it was voted for. The book ended up being completely predictable with Andalas's character as the lead. The main character was quite arrogant and redundant with regards to being a firefighter, and I found this to be very offensive. The story of the love story that happened in the book is so obvious. The bad thing that happened to the lead character when she was a kid was obvious. I was highly disappointed in this book and knew that everyone voted incorrectly before I even opened it.

   Great Happily Ever After Story
Loved the central character! He also learned a lot about firefighters and EMTs, their training and the daily rigors of the job.

   A treasure of a story
Retired fire captain and avid reader, Mr. Daschle said. This story was told with the compassion and humor that made it all the way to the Supreme Court. I'll be reading more of Elizabeth Center's work. She is a master storyteller and gifted writer. She took the reader behind the doors of a firehouse and illustrated the challenges female firefighters face in being accepted in this male-dominated field. Along with these challenges, the protagonist's struggles with her estranged mother and her struggle with the forbidden attraction to another firefighter.

   Ridiculously corny and unrealistic. Poorly written.
Even more ridiculous fairy tale plot. Did an 18-year-old who has never been in a relationship write this? An easy read, at least.

   Loved
Amazing story and it hit all points of romance, humor, action, suspense. One of my all-time favorite reads.

   Tripe!
Jodi Picoult, the best-selling novelist, has admitted to reading the entire book. It looks like Amazon will let me return it. It's predictable and shallow, even for a Broadway revival. I like good lighting, but this is not it.
 
5
   Hard to put down great read
A really enjoyable read, as all of this author's books are, and I highly recommend this newest one. It's the way she weaves a story with emotional literacy, with characters you are pulling for and while the characters face real and heart-breaking challenges, she writes with such empathy and warmth.
 
3
   Casual read
It's a 3 out of 5. In the beginning, it was an ok, casual book, but then it tackled some serious subjects, including infidelity, and then it devolved into clichés and melodrama at the end. Movie of the week, not serious writing.

   Love it
A lot of good stuff. Such a great mix of all emotions, Robert said. Looking forward to the next book amongst her others as this is the first one of her choosing I've read.

   Forgettable yet readable
I wanted to really, really like this book, but so much of it is unnecessary details about not important things, Claire writes. It was a lot of fun, I can't say I disliked it, but it fell short in many ways. If you like books to end with being everything tied up in a little bow then this is the book for you.
