Fired Up: A Review

I love Mary Connealy's books.  She is one of my top christian authors.  This being said this book left me a little disappointed.  I love the character of Dare Riker.  This strong compassionate self-proclaimed doctor was a great hero to cheer for.   I also liked Glynna.  She was rescued in the last book from an abusive husband.  Now widowed with 2 children she must learn to provide for her family.  Glynna opens up a diner in town which proves to be very popular.  There is one catch she can't cook.  The men in town keep coming twice daily for the inedible fare and a chance to see Glynna.  Dare is getting more business from the charred food in the way of patients.

*Spoiler Alert*
There were several action scenes that I thought dragged on to long and went over the top.  The avalanche  that kept going... stopped and then more stuff came flying at them.  The other part that irritated me was when Dare was stabbed in the back and found in a pool of his own blood.  He some how revives enough to propose and sweep Glynna in his arms and have quite a dialogue with his lady love.  These two parts of the book let me down a little.

I still look forward to the next book in this series with the hope that Ms. Connealy will return to writing quality christian fiction and leave the action sequneces to the movies....

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own...
