Trial by Fire

» Posted on Oct 17, 2009 in Blog | 4 comments

A friend of mine, Cara Putman, gave her book to me to read. I enjoyed it. She is a lawyer and her perspective on the courtroom is great. And I love books about arson. It’s out on the shelves right now.

Trial by Fire‘s blurb:

Her mother’s house was first. Then her brother’s. County prosecutor Tricia Jamison is sure she’s next on the arsonist’s list. But who is after her family? And why does every fire throw her in Noah Brust’s path?

Noah can’t forgive Tricia. Her failure to protect him on the stand the previous year meant his father’s reputation was ruined. Yet every time the firefighter is near her, he’s drawn to her again. The vulnerability she hides under her confident veneer surprises and moves him. Torn between Tricia’s safety and his own bitterness, Noah belatedly remembers the first rule of firefighting: don’t get burned.
