Book Description

The latest sizzling romantic comedy from the author of the bestselling Cypress Hollow novels. She's carried a torch for him for years. Now they're both feeling the heat…

As the owner of the Cypress Hollow gas station and garage, Fiona Lynde is not one for pretty dresses or fussy make-up. In fact, most days she forgets to brush her hair. But she does have one guilty little secret—she's been in love with Abe Atwell for over ten years.

Problem is, Abe—the town's handsome harbormaster—barely knows she exists.

But then Fiona petitions the council to demolish a deserted old lighthouse, just as Abe is equally determined to preserve the local landmark.

But why does Fiona want to tear down the building that was once her childhood home? And why is Abe, whose father drowned in the lighthouse's shadow, so desperate to save it?

Battle lines are drawn—just as the spark between them is finally ignited…

Another wonder installment in the Cypress Hollow series. All the characters have enough insecurities and foibles to feel like real people; and several remind me of people I know. The storyline, past and present, is intricately woven (or should I say knitted) and the feelings are deep. This is a story about two people finding their way to love as well as forgiveness for themselves and each other. It's also hot and sexy in spots and laugh-out-loud funny in others. Great entertainment!

I read an advance copy of this and I'm so thrilled with how much I loved it. Cora's Heart (the previous CH novel) didn't quite hit me as well as the previous Cypress Hollow books so I'm super happy that Fiona's Flame ticked all of the boxes for me in terms of a lighthearted read. Herron has a talent for writing characters that are flawed in real ways, rather than feeling contrived.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be disappointed! July 31, 2014
I was delighted to receive an ARC of Fiona's Flame for an honest review. Fiona is one tough cookie, even though she had a tough life, she found a way to embrace her quirkiness and make something of herself. She is passionate about making her home a better place and getting rid of her demons of her past. Enter Hottie Harbormaster Abe. He's also passionate about his life and has his own demons to conquer. The two together make for an interesting, very hot story showing that love can prevail only if you let it. Rachael Herron creates likable, funny characters that draw you in from the very beginning, you will never be disappointed in any of her books!

This is my second book by this author and I love the knitting quotes at the beginning of the chapters. I would recommend it for a sweet read with interesting characters with believable back stories. Love the town.

This is a fun read. For those already enjoying Cypress Hollow, Fiona is a little "different." For one, she is not a soft knitter--up til now we have had those who are making their living by knitting, or simply knitters of soft things, that other knitters can relate to. Fiona is a mechanic who makes jewelry, and when she does knit, it's with wire. I think this adds something to the legacy of Cypress Hollow, in that not all its denizens are knit-obsessed woolites...some are living there who don't knit!

Once again, Rachel's characters are well fleshed and relatable. Her plot in this one was a little more straightforward, but if you are an escapist reader (as I am) you will enjoy it. Parts of it were a bit of a slog for me, but that may have been my own outside influences while reading. Once again, a well-written romance journey, NOT for those fans of clinical, sex-free stories, but enjoyable for most any romance reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic Story in the Life of Cypress Hollow August 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fiona's Flame has a slightly different feel to it than the rest of the Cypress Hollow books. It's most definitely a Cypress Hollow book, but even as a rabid knitter myself, it was good to see that take a more minor role than in the other books. Oh, it's there, but it's not as prominent.

I enjoyed seeing other sides of Cypress Hollow, and the humor that Rachael Herron puts into her books was in full force in this one. I keep telling myself that I need to compile all of the Eliza Carpenter sayings at the beginning of every chapter of every book. Eliza's Little Book of Wisdom would sell faster than cashmere at 75% markdown (and for the non-knitters, that would be faster-than-light speed).

As usual, my only disappointment after reading this was that the next book in the series isn't ready yet. I look very forward to the next installment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming Read August 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Fiona's Flame by Rachael Herron was an interesting read from start to finish with volumes of emotional baggage and ghosts from the past. The added characters of the townsfolk of Cypress Hollow makes for an entertaining read throughout the story.

Abe and Fiona have boundless attraction and their numerous attempts to be together and the antics that follow are entertaining and heartbreaking all at the same time. The will they - wont they scenarios are sometimes distressing and sometimes comical. The reader is drawn to both characters with their strengths and weaknesses and vulnerability in the story's challenges. Entertaining, emotional, witty and at many times hilarious, Fiona's Flame will delight many a reader.
