    Honestly I just did not care for the writing in this book It was simple and straight forward but it read a little too dry and stilted The dialogue was awkward at times and other times I did not understand what the speaker was trying to convey Earlier in the book there was some foreshadowing that you would have to have a pretty thick head not to have noticed It was all just a little too obvious If you’re going to add a mystery element to the story go for it but there was no subtlety here There were a lot of issues between the two main characters with miscommunication or even non communication regarding the bigger issues at hand I didn’t feel they communicated well The synopsis made it sound like there was some kind of hate love thing going on in the beginning and it never really felt like it The angst was a little too internal to the characters and I didn’t feel like they talked to each otherThe book took place in a small coastal town in Texas within easy driving distance to Galveston and Houston my neck of the woods so to speak The fireman main character had purchased a house in the Heights to live with his wife I would love to know if there are actually firemen who can afford to live in the Heights because I looked into buying a house there and I ended up in the suburbs instead when I saw the prices not to mention that there is talk of him having a yard for his bullmastiff to run around in Either that yard was smaller than a postage stamp or it wasn’t in the Heights or he has money than a fireman’s salary or asked his in laws for it doesn’t seem like the type though Just some huge uestion marks for meThe resolution at the end was sudden and the book ended abruptly with no information to the reader about what they decided to do with their future Are they staying in this little community? Are they going to rebuild the house and is she going to run the restaurant despite everything? Are they going back to their careers in the city which respective city? His home of Houston or hers of Galveston? I have so many uestions which is why I continued to read to the end to find out the answers and pretty much none of them were answered to my satisfactionI’m not too sure about the resolution of who burned down the house either view spoilerIt may be legal in that part of Texas to burn down your own house but I do not think the local fire dept and as fire chief the owner would have been that would be happy for any citizen to set a fire without the proper euipment or permit in some cases to put it out and control it on the property that would be reckless endangerment at the least and a county or city official should know better not to mention the danger to those beautiful palominos they were always talking up Ryan should be compelled to make the appropriate steps in this situation and that is not addressed He just let it go hide spoiler

    I loved how Leah and Ryan's relationship developed They were drawn to each other from the beginning but neither was sure what they wanted to feel Leah wanted to stay away from him because he was the fire chief and he kept thinking he was going back to his of job in Houston The only thing I didn't really like about the book was that it didn't show them as a couple that much
