I got a kick out of the role-reversal with Charley as a handywomen and Drake a scholarly wildlife biologist. It creates great tension between them when Drake needs a helping hand at his rundown cabin. Charley doesn't trust due to having been burned before in love, and Drake's all too willing to be the man to help her overcome her distrust. When the two get caught in a suspenseful and gripping escape from a raging forest fire, their relationship starts to sizzle (literally!). Down to the last page, I didn't know how they would reach their happily ever after when Drake is only in town for the summer. But Ms. Mills' wraps it up beautifully and the ending was real and satisfying.
I loved Tara Mills' first novel CAUTION: FILLING IS HOT and was excited to read FOREST FIRES. Tara Mills has a flare for injecting humor into her stories in just the right places and in the right amounts. I love her writing and story-telling ability, and I highly recommend both books. Tara Mills is now on my instant buy list.
Charley Jenson loves her life as an all-around handywoman in a Maine resort town. She loves the wilderness and after a disastrous relationship with a cheating boyfriend, she has no intentions of falling for one of the summer visitors, even if he is different. But Drake Carver, a wildlife biologist who is in the area to study waterfowl, is almost a native, having spent his childhood summers in his family's cabin on the lake, and he's a darned nice guy to boot. Even though Charley can't see a future with him because of their differences in upbringing and education, she falls for his caring ways and his habit of making her feel like a cherished equal.
I found myself falling in love with Drake (who wouldn't fall for an ornithologist who sheds tears over a dead baby loon?) and cheering for the hard-working Charley, who deserves every bit of happiness she gets.
Do yourself a favor and dig into this book one day when you want to meet a man you can really fall for, and a woman who deserves him.
Drake Carver has returned to the cabin where he'd spent his boyhood summers to work on a contract for Fish and Wildlife. He's a wildlife biologist--an unusual occupation in romance heroes--and will be spending the summer studying the birds in the area. Charley Jensen is a handywoman who has lived in the area all her life and who is about as girly as the lug wrench she loans Drake when she first meets him on the road where he's had a flat tire.
It's a role-reversing, gender-bending mismatch made in heaven. Or, in this case, Haven, which is the name of the small nearby town.
When Drake needs some help with a couple projects at the cabin, I'll give you one guess who the handywoman is who takes the job. And when Charley wants company on a hike to a breathtaking piece of scenery, who do you think she invites to go with her? I'll give you the same single guess.
It's on that hike that a wildfire traps the couple. Mills' description of their climb out of the danger zone is nail-bitingly good. As is her portrayal of the tension between them as each comes to terms with the growing attraction between them.
But Charley has been burned before and isn't sure she wants to trust him, a man who is as far away from what she thought she liked as possible. And he knows she's not the kind of woman his socially conscious mother would like him to marry. On top of that, his work will be over at summer's end and he'll be leaving the cabin. So, Charley breaks it off before he breaks her heart. But Drake has a surprise up his sleeve that just might help her see their differences aren't important although being together is.
I was fortunate to read an advanced copy of "Forest Fires" and have reviewed it as a favor to the author. If you're smart, you'll buy this book as soon as it's available October 15th. I'll bet you agree that I was lucky to have been among the first to read it. And also download a copy of "Caution: Filling is Hot" by the same author. It's another good read.
