Fade the Heat

Fade the Heat - Colleen Thompson Firefighter heroine is resisting her asthma diagnosis & its repercussions re: her well-loved job & goes to public-clinic doctor hero, who's her old childhood friend, for help. Both become coincidentally embroiled in an arson-murder with the hero as its focus.

Thompson writes well but I found her detailed writing & characterization distracting from the book's emotional pace. In fact, I found this book NOT emotionally engaging. It's like watching the news versus a movie...and I prefer my books to be like movie-watching. It's probably because it's more suspense-focused. The romance was 2ndary & lacking in heat.

Partially recommended for the suspense but not the romance.
