Publisher's Summary

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of When I'm Gone comes a compelling novel of a bond between sisters, tested by tragedy...
Ellie Brown thought she'd finally escaped her stifling hometown of Broadlands, Illinois; med school was supposed to be her ticket out. But when her father has a stroke, she must return home to share his care with her older sister, Amelia, who's busy with her own family. Working as a paramedic, Ellie's days are monotonous, driving an ambulance through streets she'd hoped never to see again.
Until a 911 dispatch changes everything. The address: her sister's house. Rushing to the scene, Ellie discovers that Amelia and her husband, Steve, have been shot in a home invasion. After Amelia is rushed to the hospital, Ellie tries to make sense of the tragedy. But what really happened inside her sister's house becomes less and less clear. As Amelia hangs on in critical condition, Ellie uncovers dark revelations about her family's past that challenge her beliefs about those closest to her...and force her to question where her devotions truly lie.

Not recommended.

Struggled to finish bit I did make it! Predictable, did not enjoy the reader, and repetitive thoughts and behaviors throughout which made it boring.

Robotic performance, annoying geography

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator was like listening to an automated voice teller reading the text. You could almost hear the pause as it searched for the word.

What was most disappointing about Emily Bleeker’s story?

I was annoyed that there were so many fictional places and geography mixed in with the true. Also, the resolution of the mystery was not satisfying and the cliffhanger type quality not intriguing enough for me to search for whether the story continued in a next book.

What didn’t you like about Kate Rudd’s performance?

No emotion. When it was shifting character there was just something wooden or robotic through the whole thing.

What character would you cut from Working Fire?
