Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center Review

What an incredible story! Things You Save in a Fire was a true heartwarming and uplifting exploration of forgiveness, personal growth and self worth. I don't think there was one thing I didn't like about this one! Simply amazing!

Once in a while, a story comes along and tugs at my heart. Things You Save in a Fire is that kind of story. Beautifully written yet heart breaking, this story was eye opening. So many people stay mad for ever and they don't realize it eventually weighs on them. This book makes you take a step back and makes you look at rough situations and how you can apply the "guidelines for forgiveness" that Diana preaches.

This was my first read from the author but she became a favorite of mine. I will be reading anything she comes with next, as well as her previous novel. She has a real talent in honestly writing about the messy parts of life. The characters were all relatable. It made me laugh out loud and also made me cry. This was a truly gripping story until the very last page.

Thank you to St. Martin's Press for my gifted copy.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she's seen her fair share of them, and she's excellent at dealing with other people's tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to uproot her life and move to Boston, it's an emergency of a kind Cassie never anticipated.

The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie's old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a "lady" on the crew, even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the handsome rookie, who doesn't seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can't think about that. Because she doesn't fall in love. And because of the advice her old captain gave her: don't date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping...but will she jeopardize her place in a career where she's worked so hard to be taken seriously?

Happy reading,
