(An FBI Task Force Novella)
A new standalone novella from one of the top names in romantic suspense. Includes a preview of the first book in DiAnn’s explosive new FBI Task Force series!
Special Agent Savannah Barrett and her partner, SA Paul Winston, have been investigating a puzzling string of church arsons when she receives devastating news: her estranged son has been killed in a car accident, leaving Savannah sole custody of three young grandchildren she didn’t know existed. As she and Paul investigate new fires, trying to establish an M.O. and a suspect list, Savannah is thrown back into parenting while trying to handle her own heartbreak. Paul becomes her biggest support—on and off the job—kindling the fire between them.
But when the case takes a personal turn and Savannah’s grandkids are threatened, she and Paul must put everything on hold to stop this arsonist’s reign of fire.
I especially enjoyed having an older hero and heroine in this short story. Also, it is well-written, with a fully-formed story in a few pages. I enjoyed the mystery of the arsonist and the chase to catch them. And it was both heart wrenching and heartwarming to read of the death of Savannah's son and her efforts to bring her three grandchildren into her life and help them adjust.
