From the back cover:
When FBI profiler Kaely Quinn’s brother asks for help caring for their unwell mother, Kaely finds herself headed to Darkwater, Nebraska. When she arrives, she learns the small town has been facing a series of fires. While the fire chief attributes them to the misuse of space heaters in the frigid winter, Kaely identifies a pattern that makes her suspect they were no accident.
After yet another blaze devastates a local family, Kaely’s suspicions turn to certainty. Together with her partner from St. Louis, Noah Hunter, and her brother’s firefighter neighbor, Kaely and her team begin an investigation that swiftly leads them down a twisted path. When the truth is finally revealed, Kaely finds herself confronting a madman who is determined his last heinous act will be her death.

Kaely’s mom needs her help, and so does her community. Balancing the needs of her family with her heart’s desire to protect people isn’t easy, but once again Kaely gets drawn into the thick of it all.
While the mind of a criminal can be hard to understand, I couldn’t help trying to figure out what was happening with this arsonist, and what his story was. New clues appear at a perfect pace, making it hard to put the book down.
The relationship struggles Kaely has seem naturally challenging. Whether her mom, her brother, her partner, or her friend Maggie, her past seems to interfere with them all. And yet that’s so true to life…
I am really enjoying the Kaely Quinn Profiler series and can’t wait for the next one! If you enjoy a well-written romantic suspense, you’ll definitely want to read these!
