CFBA: Save by the Fireman

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Saved by the Fireman
Love Inspired (October 21, 2014)
Allie Pleiter


Enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and nonfiction. An avid knitter, harp player and non-reformed chocoholic, she spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in speech from Northwestern University and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The "dare from a friend" to begin writing eight years ago has blossomed into a career that includes numerous public speaking engagements, two books on parenting; Becoming a Chief Home Officer and Facing Every Mom's Fears and now novels for Steeple Hill Books. She is the mother of two children and, most recently, a Havanese dog named Bella.


Building their future

Charlotte Taylor isn't good at playing it safe. Reeling from the sudden loss of her job and her beloved grandmother, Charlotte knows buying a dilapidated cottage in Gordon Falls isn't exactly practical. Especially since she just hired the one man who may love the property more than she does to help renovate it. Volunteer firefighter and part-time contractor Jesse Sykes can't stay mad at Charlotte for very long. Though she snatched up the home he'd planned on purchasing, Charlotte's dreams are big enough for both of them…if only she'd let him in. Charlotte promised she'd never fall for a first responder, but is it already too late?

Gordon Falls: Hearts ablaze in a small town

This book may be small, but it packed a big punch.  After reading this book I couldn't believe that such a small book could have so much in it, that's a good thing!  I loved how well the cottage was described, I fell as if I were right beside Charlotte, helping her.

Jesse Sykes, he feels like he's never good enough, I felt like a lot of his attitude came from being unsure, and I really enjoyed how things ended for Jesse.

This book will take you from big town Chicago, to a quaint little town where the pace of life is much different, where people are different, you might just feel yourself relaxing.  Well...maybe not, Charlotte seems to keep herself surrounded in action!

The love part of the wasn't an in-your face kind of a romance, you knew it was there, but there were other aspects of this book that were just as important, probably more so.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next Allie Plieter release.
