Unfriendly Fire

In Unfriendly Fire by Steven Donahue, readers will be taken on a journey of emotional turmoil, guilt, lust, and redemption. Wyatt, a firefighter from Ohio, struggles with the guilt of leaving his friend and colleague behind during a tragic house fire. To add to his troubles, he also receives the news of his mother’s death, making him feel guilty about not being there for two important people in his life. Finally, Wyatt comes together with Kasey Carpenter as they try to find the person starting these fires.

The reader is immediately thrust into the action and drama as the first chapter opens with Wyatt trying to extinguish a fire and save those trapped inside. The creative use of flashbacks and nightmares provides an in-depth look at what Wyatt experienced and the guilt he carries. The dialogue sets the scene and creates a vivid picture making the town and people seem more real. The flirtatious banter between Wyatt and Kasey was a pleasant surprise, and I hoped they would end up together. Lance’s character was overbearing at times, and the author expertly set his character up to be both liked and disliked. The story progresses at a steady pace, and while some parts may feel slow, the in-depth details provided about each character make it easy to follow their journey. The mystery continues to build throughout the story making this a book that is hard to put down.

Unfriendly Fire is a quick read that I recommend to those who enjoy a captivating mystery with romance sprinkled throughout. This is a wholesome story about a family reconnecting after a significant loss and a man who finds himself lost in life, discovering he has a place.
