Publisher's Summary

Savanna Thompson knows what it’s like when you blink and your life shatters. She’s been hiding her divorce from her best friend Cassie, but she knows she can’t any longer. Cassie’s husband, a firefighter, just died. Savanna rushes home, along with her one-year-old daughter, to help, and now, she’s staying with Cassie in a nursery meant for a baby that won’t ever exist.
She will fix their relationship, but it’s complicated with Jason around. He’s the firefighter who saved Savanna’s life two and a half years ago. He just lost his best friend, and like Cassie, he blames himself for Mike’s death. When he convinced Mike to remain with the department, how could he know Mike would die fighting a house fire?
Though hurting herself, something deep inside her won’t let her walk away. Jason needs her, but she’s off limits on so many levels. She’s falling for this sexy firefighter, but he confuses her to no end. Being stuck in the middle is enough stress, plus her own problems are festering behind her helping smile. Can Savanna find the balance between loving Jason, helping Cassie, and taking care of herself and her daughter? Or is she going to lose this bet and her best friend?
Book two, More Than a Promise, is now available.

Enjoyable listen

What an emotional story this is. Embers of Hope focuses on Savanna and her daughter coming back to town after her best friend, Cassie's husband dies in a fire. She is ready to start her new life in her old town, but there are many issues she needs to overcome. Jason, the fireman who saved her several years earlier quickly becomes the man she wants to be with, but the two know there are obstacles in their way. And we have Cassie, dealing with her loss and trying to make sense of her life without her husband. James takes real life issues and has transformed them into this love story, including grief, a slow burning love and second chances at happiness. I especially love Aubrey, Savanna's daughter. Her relationship with everyone she encounters truly makes the scene shine.

Anneliese Rennie gives this story the narration it deserves. There is pain, guilt, hope, fear and happiness all wrapped up in this story, and each emotion is played out so the listener can feel them and is a performance to enjoy.

Embers of Hope

This is a story of a single mother who kept her friends and family in the dark about her divorce but then she comes home and has to explain the turns her life has taken. She finds that her friends and family need her support as much as she needs theirs. It's a story of forgiveness, trust, love and courage that touched me with it's rich characters.
