Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center – Book Review

Synopsis:  Cassie is a fire fighter in Texas and loves her job and her co-workers so when her estranged mother requests that she move home to Boston for a year to help her with a medical issue, Cassie really doesn’t want to.  However, when Cassie refuses to apologize for assaulting a representative from the mayor’s office she finds she doesn’t have much of a choice because it’s either take a new position at a Boston firehouse or be unemployed.  She soon finds out that she is not welcome at her new firehouse because she is a woman and has to work three times as hard in order to prove herself.  The only person in the firehouse that seems to like her is the new rookie and although she feels the sparks between them, she doesn’t want to jeopardize her career.

My thoughts:  This book was a lot of fun and I just enjoyed losing myself in the story.  The only parts that I didn’t like were the episodes of misogyny but as aggravating as it was, it tied the storyline together.  If you are looking for a fast, fun read I would recommend.

Thank you to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
