Falls Like Lightning by Shawn Grady

Smokejumper Silas Kent never expected to see pilot Elle Westmore again. In fact, reuniting makes him realize what a mistake he made all those years ago. But before he has a chance to try to make amends, he's called to lead a new crew into battle against a massive fire in the Sierra Nevadas.

And then things go very wrong, very quickly.

A suspicious engine explosion forces the crew to parachute early while Elle barely survives a crash landing. Silas reaches the ground safely, but in beginning a desperate race to reach the downed plane, he soon realizes he has more to fear than just a raging forest fire.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Shawn Grady has served for more than a decade as a firefighter and paramedic in Reno, NV, where he lives with his wife and three children. Named the "Most Promising Writer" at the 2008 Mt. Hermon Writers Conference, he is the author of Through the Fire. Visit his website at shawngradybooks.com.

MY THOUGHTS

Falls Like Lightning is packed full of danger and suspense, and a little bit of romance. Not only are the characters fighting against fire and other natural elements in this story, but they also come up against heartless criminals who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Silas and Elle have a romantic history but Elle chose another man instead of Silas, and now she is a single mother of a five year old with health issues. Silas and Elle are thrown together in a dangerous fire fighting situation, where he is the lead in the smokejumper crew and she is the pilot. They have no idea of the danger as well as emotions they will have to face head on.

If you enjoy an action packed story that offers hope, forgiveness and second chances, then you will enjoy Falls Like Lightning.
