Burn You Twice

We rated this book:


In Burn You Twice, it’s been ten years since Joan and her college roommate Ann survived a fire set by an arsonist. Right after that, Joan left Montana and went back home to Philadelphia, leaving the memories and her boyfriend, Gideon, behind. Now a detective, Joan spends most of her time trying to solve arson cases. Then she receives a letter from prison, letting her know that Elijah, the classmate convicted of setting the fire all those years ago, has served his time and is returning home to Montana. On suspension anyway, Joan decides to head back and see what his plan is. Another fire breaks out and a woman ends up dead, but Elijah has an alibi. Joan works with Gideon to find out who set the fire and figure out if Elijah was innocent the whole time. She’s already been burned once; she won’t let it happen again.

This was a great story. It’s classified as romance fiction, but I would say it’s more of a suspense story with some romance thrown in. Much more of the story dealt with Joan and Gideon working the case and trying to solve all the arsons, then focusing on their romance. It’s definitely peppered throughout but isn’t the main focus. Overall, it was an entertaining read and if you enjoy suspense stories, then I think this is one you’ll want to add to your marked to-read list.
