About the Book

Book: Summer Flash Burn
Author: Erin Unger
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 4, 2019

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 Thoughts:

What happens when a firefighter needs a bit of protecting but doesn't want to admit it? Sparks fly, both good and bad as not only does he need protecting but he is also very attracted to his protector.

Christopher Newen is that firefighter and he wants to get to the bottom of his father's murder. So he hires the Worthington Investigations and meets P.I. Shauna Pratley and her team. Their first meet is not a cutesy one and actually took me by surprise. Very frightening stuff there.  And unfortunately things just go from bad to worse.

Throw in some land disputes with a Native American tribe and your investigations turn mighty interesting. Christopher is used to fighting fires, but when they come for him watch out.

I liked this new investigation team of women, their strength and ingenuity was fun to watch. I felt the author showed Christopher and Shauna as both strong and vulnerable characters and their reliance on one another and eventually their romance was fun to watch grow. And that cover....says it all.

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are 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.
