Paramedic Zoe Chambers is used to saving lives, but when she stops a man from running into a raging inferno in a futile attempt to rescue his wife, Zoe finds herself drawn to him, and even more so to his ten-year-old daughter. She invites them both to live at the farm while the grieving widower picks up the pieces of his life.
Vance Township Police Chief Pete Adams, of course, is not happy with this setup, especially when he finds evidence implicating Zoe’s new houseguest in murder times two. When Zoe ignores Pete’s dire warnings, she runs the very real chance of burning one too many bridges, losing everything—and everyone—she holds dear.

Review: I absolutely love Annette Dashofy's Zoe Chamber's Mystery series.


It is set in a fictional county in PA that's near Pittsburgh. Mind you, when I started this series, it kind of through me, because I'm from the area and I knew there wasn't a Monongahela County.

In this book Zoe rescues a man from running into a burning building, only to find out his wife was in the house. The fire was caused by a natural gas explosion and Zoe finds herself getting a little close with the victim's family.

I had only one gripe with the story and that dealt with the foreclosure process. Being in the market for a house and finding all the houses I like are in foreclosure, I know that because of PA law, this house wouldnt' have been going up for sheriff sale that quickly. Foreclosures take forever. But I'll ignore that, because I love the story and because it played a part in the crime.

Holt Farrabee is the main suspect, but he is way too likable and his daughter is a fabulous character. I loved these two. You really connected with them and so did Zoe.

Usually, I can't figure out the whodunit, but for some reason with this book, I knew from the moment the character appeared, that he was the killer. I think that might be me though.

Annette really keep you on the edge of your seat with Zoe and Pete's relationship. These two really belong together and let's just say that things were very touch and go throughout this book.

This is a fast paced exciting mystery that will keep you reading from the time you open the book until you reach the last page.
