On the verge of divorce, Jamie and Erica have had their share of fights over everything, especially parenting and his job as a firefighter. After an earthquake rattles the area, Erica and their daughter Chloe are trapped in the courthouse. When Jamie and his team are called to the site for rescue, his worst fear is in front of him-losing his family. When they find Erica, he feels relief, but Chloe is trapped in a separate area. Will jamie and Erics be able to set aside their marital issues as they try to save their daughter and possibly their marriage?
I did not like Erica. She's convinced herself Jamie will die on the job and leave her so she's made herself completely independent of him. She's locked him out emotionally and physically as a husband and refuses to let him be involved with Chloe, claiming his erratic hours as a firefighter isn't good for her. Erica never tells Jamie her insecurities, she acts like he should read her mind and know the problem. She's selfish, inconsiderate and very immature.
Jamie has his own set of issues. He doesn't understand what went wrong with his marriage. He's given Erica everything she's demanded or asked for with little argument on his part hoping that would make her happy. He misses his daughter and is still in love with his wife but doesn't know how to fix things.
For a novella I was pleasantly surprised. This story is full of suspense and camaraderie. I liked Jamie's honesty, definitely not a fan of Erica's immaturity, and loved Chloe's simple openess with her parents. My curiosity was peaked enough about the other team members to check out the rest of this series too.
I actually read UNDER HIS COMMAND by Kritine Cayne and was impressed by her writing and the storyline that when I read about ROMANCE IN THE RAIN, I had to buy it and read it too. Personally, I wished I had read ROMANCE IN THE RAIN first, but nonetheless, it was a great read and helped establish the strong family bonds.
I look forward to more books, especially by Krintine Cayne, but was also pleased with the other authors as well.

This was a very informative story on WAFS and WASP - the women that stepped up during a horrible time to do very brave things.

Aftershocks by Kristine Cayne This is the prequel to Kristine's new rescue firefighter series. Jamie Caldwell is part of the Seattle Fire Dept Technical Rescue Team. He has been separated from his wife who wants a divorce. He has been putting off signing the papers cause he doesn't want to lose his daughter. Erica suffers from a lot of issues from her childhood and while Jamie was away for an humanitarian mission her insecurities got the better of her and she decided to start not needing Jamie anymore and basically pushed him away when he got back even though she laid the blame on him. After a large earthquake rocks Seattle, Erica and their daughter Chloe are trapped in a building. The majority of this book is Jamie and his team trying to rescue them. We get to find out what went wrong in there marriage and see that deep down they really both still love each other. I loved the rescue scenes in the book it was like you were right there with them crawling through the collapsed building. We got to find out about all of Jamie's family and a couple of co-workers who will all get there books in the future. This was a great start to what looks to be a very good series.
