About the Book

Worthington Investigations is on another grisly case in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

When P.I. Shauna Pratley heads up the investigation for Christopher Newen, a rural firefighter, she only wants to solve his father’s murder not fall in love. She’s struggling to decide if God’s directing her to leave the team and re-enlist in the Army.

Christopher Newen may be used to the blazes of fire but not the heat ricocheting between him and Shauna. He needs the team’s help but has no intention of letting flames ignite between him and Shauna…yet her protective nature and fun-loving personality draw him in more than he wants to admit.

How will they work together to find a killer without letting love get in the way? Will they have to admit maybe God has used the horrors of evil to bring them together for good?

My Review

If you're looking for equal parts romance and suspense, this book may be for you. Shauna and her coworkers/friends are very gutsy, formidable, analytical type females so I enjoyed the departure from the norm in that way for a romance novel. The faith thread was clear throughout the book. The suspense had a good surprise ending and plenty of puzzle pieces along the way. The hero was endearing and down to earth. The romance was sweet and slow blossoming. The way the chapters switched to first person between Shauna and Christopher I found to be a bit confusing, and the action seemed a little too sudden and awkward at times. The faith message also seemed inserted a little awkwardly. I felt like the romance was a little too big a part of the story and got in the way a little of the suspense. Overall, I recommend this one for those looking for a faith-filled clean romance that has a thread of suspense.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own. 

About the Author

Erin Unger was raised in the hills of Virginia, exploring abandoned houses and reading the scariest books she could find. After marrying so young it would make a great romance novel, she has enjoyed an exciting life with her hubby. But her fast-paced life sometimes rivals the suspense in her books thanks to all her mostly grown children and a couple grandkids.  

More from Erin

If you like spicy, you’re gonna love Shauna Pratley. She has the muscles and weaponry knowledge to protect her team—along with a very tough attitude. And she knows better than most what it is to serve and protect after a stint in the Army. But now life is a little upside down to her. Should she re-enlist or solidify her career with Worthington Investigations? Of course, her military background will never wear off even if she doesn’t return. She won’t leave her camo uniforms in the dust, either, no matter how hard her P.I. buddies try to put a little variety in her wardrobe. But under it all, Shauna couldn’t be a better partner to work with. Her loyalty and protectiveness would make you all wish she was your work buddy and best friend too. Just take a look in Summer Flash Burn for all the spice and thrills—and love—you could want between the pages of a great romantic suspense novel.
