by Nora Roberts
This is the first of Nora Roberts' romantic suspense novels that I've tried. I did guess "who done it" early on in the book, which I'm usually terrible at doing . . . so maybe that says something. The reason for the recommendation is the subject: smokejumpers in Montana, the "Zulies" who risk life and limb fighting giant forest fires. The author gives the reader a real feel for the equipment, fire-fighting procedures and life on the base. I liked the heroine, Rowan Tripp. She's tough, fearless and yet compassionate and willing to accept others' opinions. I found this an enjoyable, even if not a terribly suspenseful, read.
