Editorial Reviews

From the Author

One Sunday I read a fascinating newspaper article about Controlled Demolition, Inc,. a Maryland company known worldwide for their implosions of large buildings like casinos and housing projects.  By the time I finished the article, I had a glimmering of an idea for a story.
 
Years past, but eventually I was able to write that story as The Burning Point.  (Later also released as Stirring the Embers.) Naturally my heroine had friends, and equally naturally, a trilogy was born.  The books are equal parts romance and women's fiction and writing them was a wonderful series of challenges.

From Publishers Weekly

Known for her historical romances (The Wild Child, etc.), Putney successfully moves into contemporary fiction. Kate Corsi and Patrick Donovan, divorced 10 years ago, are reunited by the death of Kate's father, Sam, who was killed in an explosion at work. The Corsi family company, Phoenix Demolition, takes pride in its spotless accident record, and Sam's death is suspicious. His will leaves the business to his former son-in-law, on the condition that Donovan and Kate live under the same roof for one year. If Kate refuses, the company will be sold. Forbidden by her father to work for the company, Kate now has her chance to work at Phoenix. But can she work and live in such close proximity to the ex-husband she seems to both love and fear? This passionate love story unravels gradually, in trademark Putney style. The author has created a realistic, well-crafted story, laced with elements of suspense and mystery and featuring sympathetic protagonists whose biggest mistake was marrying too young.
