Burning for Autumn by Freya Barker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another fascinating and captivating story by Freya Barker. I loved the blend of suspense and romance this story offers readers and even without having read any of Susan Stoker’s books, I felt that I was able to fully immerse myself in the story and the characters.

The lead characters are thrown together by circumstance and are linked indirectly by their pressurised careers. Keith is a temporary Police Chief and Autumn is a burns unit employee who is on a fixed term contract in the town. They first meet in a bar and although Autumn is immediately attracted to the brooding Keith, she cannot foresee how their paths will become inextricably intertwined when the arsonist case that Keith is working on crosses over into Autumn’s professional and personal life.

Whilst the case Keith is investigating draws readers into a multi-faceted mystery with distressing and disturbing outcomes, it’s the romance that develops between Keith and Autumn which is even more engaging as Autumn finds herself drawn to Keith on many levels despite her trying to resist his charms.

I especially loved the side characters to this story and I can’t wait to read Luna’s contribution to the series.

This was another highly recommended book from a well-versed and must-read author.

When Autumn McCoy accepted a temporary work contract in Durango, she thought it would be a safe way to add some spark to her existence. She may be getting more than she bargained for when she finds herself the target of impending danger.The outspoken forty-two-year-old isn’t prepared for that spark to ignite flames threatening to engulf every aspect of her life.

Buried under the weight of responsibilities, all interim Chief of Police, Keith Blackfoot, wants is to get back to good old-fashioned detecting. He gets his chance when an encounter with a feisty redhead
seems to incite a wave of arson cases. Although a visit from friend and firefighter, Roman “Chief” Proudfit, provides some direction, he’s left to battle an invisible menace fueling fires that could leave his town—and his heart—in ashes.
