Review

"Warren’s characters are well developed, and she knows how to create a first-rate contemporary romance."--Library Journal --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

Her life was under control...until he set her heart on fire. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I'm a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I'm an adventurer -- having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that's why my characters can't sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another -- they're too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories, that I hope inspire and entertain!

Wow! This book was great! I have read all of Warren's Deep Haven novels now, and while I have really enjoyed them all, this is my favourite so far. The story was faced paced and action packed from the first sentence to the last. I couldn't put it down! It was also unique in that it delved into the question of the role of women in certain professions (such as firefighting) confronting common stereotypes on the issue, but from a Christian perspective. And, once again, Warren has demonstrated the ability to integrate a quality story line that intrigues and delights with solid biblical truth. That is definitely one of the things I love about her writing. Although she's writing romance, her stories are never just fluff. They are stories about the transforming work of Christ in the lives of ordinary people who face common struggles and confront common misconceptions about the true character of God and his love and grace. With every one of Warren's books I seem to learn more about who God really is, and that, to me, is the mark of good Christian fiction. The fact that Warren is able to weave that into a story that is so intriguing and enjoyable that non-Christians would also enjoy it is a mark of her skill as a writer. Overall, this book is a great read and I highly recommend it!

I thoroughly enjoyed The Perfect Match, Book 3 of the Deep Haven Series. Susan May Warren is an extremely gifted story teller, always keeping her readers in suspense to the end. Her eclectic cast of characters layers this fascinating story with diverse relationships and unexpected plot twists - always a treat for voracious readers! Through main character Ellie Karlson, we take an adventure into the unique and dangerous world of firefighting, complicated all the more since Ellie is the new captain of Deep Haven's all-male volunteer fire station. Through Dan Matthews, we experience the life of a single pastor in a small town -- who also happens to be a firefighter. The stage is set for a troubled road for these two when the town is sabotaged by an unknown arsonist. The sparks that fly between them (pun apologies) make us wonder if they'll ever be able to break through the past and present obstacles to make this relationship work.
Susan May Warren's books are guaranteed to entertain, thrill, and inspire. Without question, they fall in the Can't-Put-Down category! I'd also like to commend Julie Chen's creative artwork on the covers for making all Susan's books jump off the bookshelf. Outstanding!
This is a trilogy you'll want to own and share with all your friends. It's that good!

Format: Paperback
Assigned to serve as Deep Haven's interim fire chief, Ellie Karlson arrives in town just in time to witness the fire department in action. The team's haste and confusion handling a house fire lead to mistakes that throw a firefighter from a second story perch. Pastor Dan Matthews, volunteer firefighter, lands at her feet and in her heart when he dazedly asks "Are you a dream?"
But all delusions of romance shatter when she visits his hospital room and informs him she's his new boss. His "over my dead body" retort epitomises the chauvinistic attitudes she has faced her entire career. Nevermind that she knows more about fighting fires than the scraggly volunteer squad and can outperform them physically too.
She's determined to prove her merit and earn a place of respect in Deep Haven, but a string of arsons and resistance from her crew has Ellie questioning herself, her career and her faith. Can she find the arsonist, salvage her career and deal with the sparks Dan has ignited in her heart?
Another terrific story from Susan May Warren! I highly recommend The Perfect Match, along with the other two books in the series, Happily Ever After and Tying the Knot.

The Perfect Match was the perfect ending to the Deep Haven series. Not only was this well thought out story wrapped up with beauty, we got to check in on the couples from the previous books, "Happily Ever After" and "Tying the Knot."

With this series, Susan May Warren climbed her way right onto my list of favorite authors.

Format: Paperback
This book is entertaining, contains moments of sigh-worthy romance, delivers a few solid morals and faith lessons, includes a few interesting twists and turns, but I don't know how to rate it. Overall, it was a nice fluffy read with one big caveat: sexism.

While there is a little sexism in all of Susan May Warren's books (the little fragile woman needs to be saved by the big strong man), this book has some of the most dangerous generalizations of any of her novels I have read. The novel features a woman fire chief--the idea of a strong female lead doing work that goes against her gender stereotype attracted me to the book, but as I read I noticed many disturbing sexist themes. 1) The woman is of course small and fragile looking. Of course having a tall bold woman, or even and average size woman would be out of the question! 2) The female lead, Ellie, falls apart as soon as challenging situations arise and thus needs constant rescuing and reassuring by the male lead. Then she sulks about the fact that most of her all male crew doesn't respect her. C'mon would you take a leader seriously--one who literally has your life in her hands--if every time you saw her she could barely keep her emotions under wraps? Ellie cries and pouts and looks sad and vulnerable all the time and yet the audience is supposed to believe that this woman is a competent fearless trailblazer who stares down danger on a regular basis! 3) The most dangerous theme in this book is that a woman should give up the thing that she is good at, the thing that forms her identity and makes her unique in order to garner the affections of a man and raise a family.
