The Amish Firefighter By Laura Hilton

A Beautiful Young Woman Banished from Home Abigail Stutzman thought it was bad enough being dropped at the nearest bus station and sent to live several states away with some relatives she'd never heard about, much less met. But now, just a week after her arrival in Jamesport, Missouri, she finds herself at the scene of a barn fire. An intentional barn fire. And all fingers are pointed at her. She's desperate to prove her innocence and protect her reputation, but nobody's making that easy to do. And God certainly doesn't seem willing to help.

A Brave Firefighter with an Agenda of His Own
Sam Miller is in the process of turning over a new leaf. Determined to atone for the follies of his past, he is a volunteer firefighter, an EMT, and a doctor–in–training. When local barn fires escalate, everyone suspects arson. And since the Miller family are among the victims, no one is more determined to see the perpetrators brought to justice than Sam.

A Kindled Flame Neither One Could Have Anticipated
When their paths first cross, at the site of a barn burning, the emotional intensity rivals the warmth of the flames. Soon, they must decide whether this fire is one they should feed or extinguish. And they'll discover that the truth can prove more dangerous than a blazing inferno.

What lady hasn't ever dreamed of falling in love with a fireman. Abigail and Sam are two characters that will please the reader. The two main things that grabbed my attention in this story is underlined tone of forgiveness and God's love. I love a fiction story where the author writes of God in the pages. The book flowed very well. I couldn't give enough kudos to Hilton on her character development. She is one of the best at creating characters, that you just fall in love with. It is a very well written book and that is what I have come to expect from Hilton's books. 
I gave this book 4 stars and recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
