CFBA: Saved by the Fireman by Allie Pleiter (Review)

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Saved by the Fireman
Love Inspired (October 21, 2014)
Allie Pleiter


Enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and nonfiction. An avid knitter, harp player and non-reformed chocoholic, she spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in speech from Northwestern University and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The "dare from a friend" to begin writing eight years ago has blossomed into a career that includes numerous public speaking engagements, two books on parenting; Becoming a Chief Home Officer and Facing Every Mom's Fears and now novels for Steeple Hill Books. She is the mother of two children and, most recently, a Havanese dog named Bella.


Building their future

Charlotte Taylor isn't good at playing it safe. Reeling from the sudden loss of her job and her beloved grandmother, Charlotte knows buying a dilapidated cottage in Gordon Falls isn't exactly practical. Especially since she just hired the one man who may love the property more than she does to help renovate it. Volunteer firefighter and part-time contractor Jesse Sykes can't stay mad at Charlotte for very long. Though she snatched up the home he'd planned on purchasing, Charlotte's dreams are big enough for both of them…if only she'd let him in. Charlotte promised she'd never fall for a first responder, but is it already too late?

My Review:

Saved by the Fireman is a tender romance filled with wonderful characters you'll quickly come to care about. Charlotte is in a time of transition when she decides to purchase a dilapidated cottage in Gordon Falls. Jesse Sykes is working as a volunteer firefighter and part-time contractor, but he has big dreams. When Charlotte stumbles in and grabs the cottage he planned to purchase and rehab, his plans are derailed a bit. Though Charlotte and Jesse are definitely attracted to each other, she isn't sure she wants to stay in Gordon Falls. She still needs to find a job, and that most likely will bring her back to Chicago.

Allie Pleiter puts together a perfect inspirational romance that will draw you in fully. The fifth book in the Gordon Falls series, you'll soon want to return for more romance in Gordon Falls.

I received a copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
