  • WARNING This review may prove to be dangerously combustible Protection of Endangered Species Fireman in the WildSo after a long dry spell, heh heh Nora Roberts is ON FIRE I m SO punny Okay, I ll stop now I ve mentioned this before, and I ll say it again, Nora Roberts characters have the BEST careers ever Whether she s writing about a pastry chef, or a journalist or wildfire fighter, you always feel like you re standing right there with them, seeing how they go about their lives, and learning the [...]


  • This was all new territory to me I had never come across Smokejumpers before so I guess we do not have them in Australia Maybe, although our bush fires are savage, they have some basic difference to American wildfires Anyway, as I said, smoke jumping was new to me and all very interesting.As usual Nora s characters were well drawn and entertaining She always writes witty dialogue and manages to keep her romances very romantic and down to earth at the same time.The story was good if a bit over pa [...]


  • 5 Blazing Stars I loved everything about this book and then some So much to love about this story First and foremost Gulliver Curry I really enjoyed his character He wasn t always front and center in the plot, but he had such a strong presence, that he carried a lot of the book He handled Rowan with ease, and she was not an easy woman to handle His determination to be with her was so sexy, he was dominant, but not in a demanding way He set his sights on her and wormed his way into her life, she [...]


  • Review of audiobook It is one thing to fight a forest fire and another thing all together to parachute into one however, that is exactly what the Missoula Smoke Jumpers do Nora Roberts has decided to write a story that follows several storylines of these select heroes and manages a murder mystery to boot Rebecca Lowman does an excellent job of narrating this one, keeping the voice inflections varied enough for me to differentiate the multiple characters.I enjoyed Rowan Tripp and Gulliver Curry s [...]


  • DNF at 32%, which is about 4 hours of listening.I m super bummed that I didn t like this one I m a big fan of the audio narrator, Rebecca Lowman, who killed it in her narration of Landline, so I had high hopes for this one Again, Rebecca Lowman delivered a great performance Her male voices were raspy and sexy and her female voices were also pitch perfect However, even an awesome narration couldn t save this one for me For some reason, even 4 hours in, this book just had no plot I mean, the peopl [...]


  • This was another really good romance suspense done Nora Roberts style In all of her books she infuses so much about the characters life to paint a vivid picture of how they live and think, a device that can works great but sometimes consumes the story too much In Chasing Fire the details about smoke jumping were fascinating, relevant, and not over done The heroine is the captain of a smoke jumper squad, a tough lady who takes her job of protecting her crew seriously When a tragedy occurs, it beg [...]


  • Still a bit on the fence about this book The hero is legend I found Simon, the hero in NR s previous offering, The Search, to be a bit of a wanker he s a bit alpha but not overbearing, he s sweet romantic and not ashamed to admit it, he s funny witty, and he knows what he wants the heroine is strong confident kicks major arse albeit she has some mummy abandonment issues and the dialogue between them is excellent and really cracked me up The supporting characters are well developed and endearing, [...]


  • Why do I keep reading Nora Roberts Her characters have become stilted, predictable, and none too personable.Chasing Fire is about a female fire jumper, a murder mystery, and a romance with a rookie fire jumper You ll figure out the murderer quickly so don t read it from a murder mystery standpoint.This book missed the mark Maybe I m stereotyping, but I would think that a female fire jumper is a bit of a rarity You wouldn t know it to read the book Struggles related to fire fighting are there, bu [...]


  • I loved this one My faith is officially renewed in Nora s Romantic suspense This was an INTENSE read The smoke jumping firefighting scenes were simply amazing The research that Nora puts into her books just blows my mind I swear, I was jumping out of planes and sweating it out on the ground My heart was racing, adrenaline pumpingmply awesome, says I Rowan is of a tough chick than I normally like She s living in a man s world, after all But I never felt as if she got over the top feminist No unn [...]


  • I have to say I loved this one I wouldn t recommend the audio, but when I switched over to paper, I flew through it This is Nora Roberts romanctic suspense of old As is habit with NR, there was a little too much detail and a little too much time spent on fighting fires, jumping out of planes, organizing equipment time that could have been cut out or spent on the story But anyone who s read an NR book expects that I suppose.I loved the lead characters Rowan Tripp is smart, tough, witty and female [...]


  • This is the story about a fire jumping unit that is experiencing a really rough season following a tragic death the season before The heroine is name Rowan Tripp and is the only daughter of famous fire jumper Lucas Ironman Tripp She is a woman who is very independent and very stubborn Someone who resits change and avoids long term relationships She is very good at her job though and it is one very important to her The hero is Gull Gulliver Curry He was a firefighter and is now a new recruit for [...]


  • All in all, I d give it 2.5 stars I liked it better than okay, but not enough to merit 3 The thing that bothered me most was the sentence structure It was terrible Gibbons came to stand behind her, gulped coffee Let me just say that a comma is NOT a substitute for a conjunction, subject and predicate I could accept if she used this sentence style sometimes, as a change up in dialogue, but they just permeated the narrative It felt like Roberts wrote the book in a hurry but never came back to fles [...]



  • I ve been on a re reading spree recently, anyone else try something familiar Nora Roberts explores new territory with this one She introduces you to the brave, dangerous world of smoke jumpers and you can see the action unfold.Rowan was tough, loyal and guarded.Gulliver Curry was charming, clever, strong with bottomless patience And romantic.Somehow he made me think of gentle giants, instant noodles and spicy food The murders in this book were, personal, brutal and the crew was full of unlikely [...]


  • 4,5 Me ha tenido enganchada a sus p ginas y me ha dejado con un buen sabor de boca estupendo Excelente equilibrio entre la historia rom ntica y el suspense.Tiene un argumento s lido, coherente y atractivo.Romance realista y bonito.Enamorada de los personajes Rowan es una mujer at pica, fuerte, independiente, tenaz y con las cosas muy claras Es una excelente profesional.Gull es el hombre ideal seguro de s mismo, encantador, divertido, paciente, juguet n


  • It s wildfire season, so I thought this book was in season We had just been to Breckenridge earlier in July and the Peak 2 fire had been fought by one of the top teams in the country It brings home how important the firefighters jobs are.The characters, story line and mystery are good, but for me they were dragged down with too much detail of the firefighting Some of the scenes were exciting and some felt like a down load of all the research NR did for the book It was fairly easy to determine t [...]


  • 3.5 stars.Liked this one quite a bit Loved the camaraderie NR created with the smoke jumpers She did a great job of creating different personalities amongst all the characters complete with realistic quirks Nice amount of everday humor In contrast to her last few stand alones, I actually liked this heroine as much as I liked the hero Rowan was earthy, a little bawdy, knew her job, and was incredibly competent I didn t feel disconnected from her like I have from some previous NR heroines.Gull was [...]


  • I know I m biased because I m a huge Nora Roberts fan, but it s a rare day that she writes a book that I don t really enjoy This year s hardcover release, Chasing Fire, was no exception I was hooked into this book pretty quick.Series Note No series connections.Summary Fire season is approaching Missoula, Montana and smoke jumper Rowan Tripp is returning to base to prepare for the physical demands to come But this year, coming back isn t as easy after losing her jump partner the year before Still [...]


  • This is another winner for Nora Roberts I liked the plot well enough, loved the subplot, and loved the characters It was fun watching the heroine having to deal with her own feelings on her dad s falling in love.I didn t give it the highest rating because the suspense parts of the plot were a bit too obvious, to the point where I d guessed the true villian and the motive in chapter three and was able to predict who would be the next victim of his machinations view spoiler When a minor character [...]


  • I know that every now and again it becomes fashionable to knock Nora Roberts books To say they re formulaic, routine or repetitive And yes, occasionally those complaints hold some merit BUT there is no getting around the fact that this lady works magic with words and characters Are the plots predictable Probably Do I care No I don t care because Ms Roberts writes characters that consistently come alive for me, leaping brightly from her pages with humor, reality and the desire to take up residenc [...]


  • I liked this book well enough, though a lot of its elements aren t really that interesting to me As is common for Roberts books, the details of those things outside of common experience are researched well enough that they feel real in the lives of her characters I m not a fire jumper and I don t know anybody who is, so I can t speak to how accurate they may be by themselves But as part of the story they feel integral and important in ways that would be hard to pull off without a great deal of e [...]


  • Edited to add I listened to the audiobook version of this novel, and I should have said this what a great narrator Good differentiation of one character from another, and no straining to sound male she just pulls it off.I ve read a lot of Nora Roberts novels with the exception of the fantasy and paranormal titles, which just are not my proverbial cup of tea A lot of her books blend together for me, which means that they were less than compelling or memorable Not bad, mind you Just not exceptiona [...]


  • 3.5It s apparent that Chasing Fire was excellently researched, and the fire jumper aspect was really interesting I also really liked Rowan and Gull, as well as all of the secondary characters However, I did have a couple of minor issues that prevented me from rating it higher I listened to the digital audiobook, and between parts 9 12 out of 13 parts the book started feeling really long Rowan and Gull s relationship seemed to be in a holding pattern while they continued to work on the fires, and [...]


  • This is one of the latest Nora Roberts standalone novels and a good one I have never heard about smokejumpers who fight the forest fires jumping out of the plane into the heart of the fire So exciting I really enjoyed the competent descriptions about the training, living and adrenaline filled job they do fighting the fire in most difficult conditions This job is truly dangerous, demands special skills and qualities only the bravest or craziest adrenaline chunkies can take on In addition to a gre [...]


  • Qu entretenido No sab a que hab a una profesi n como bomberos paracaidista, es tan divertido Pens que ser a denso la parte donde la autora se demora en cada uno de los incendios forestales, pero es muy interesante, c mo se desarrolla la labor y c mo es el trabajo de Rowan all Me gusta Rowan, creo que f cilmente pudo haber creado una barrera que la mantuviera alejada de cualquier tipo de relaci n que implique compromiso y volverse pesada por eso mismo, pero no lo hizo, de hecho, es bastante hones [...]


  • 3.5Creo que pesa mucho m s la parte de acci n que la parte rom ntica, en realidad se la come, y para m , es m s un libro de acci n con una historia de amor de fondo, La pareja me ha gustado, sobre todo l que podr a ser en muchos aspectos el sue o de muchas y, desde luego, ella tiene mucho car cter y muchas de las caracter sticas de su personalidad, sin olvidar su trabajo, la convierten en una protagonista femenina muy original con la suerte de la novata este es mi primer contacto con Nora Robert [...]



  • Chasing Fire might be not the best of Nora Roberts, but I still enjoy it I love how Nora writing her heroines All are though and in this one, the heroine s job as smoke jumper is unique I never hear about smoke jumper before and assume they are just a usual firefighter So, of course I need to check into Google the answer for almost all of our questions and know that they re used to fight the fire on the forest or mountain or remote area Heh, I don t know the right term for this, lol.Rowan Tripp [...]


  • For a very long time now, Nora Roberts has been my hands down favourite author Her style of blending a good mystery thriller story with romance has been a winner in my eyes, and I especially like the powerful female role models she uses as lead characters In an age when girls look up to Bella Swan, a strong female is a positive message indeed I was fortunate to get my hands on an advance copy of Chasing Fire and approached it with wary apprehension resulting from my attitude towards her last cou [...]


  • Go Zulies Oh Wow.Nora Roberts sure can do her job right Well researched, well written, wonderfully pacedThis review I m attempting to write can never do the book justice.It was typical Nora The picture painting was awesome, I really felt like I was there, in the middle of the wildfire, in the black, waiting for the siren to scream, walking the base alongside Rowan and Gull, running on the trackIt all felt real, from the flaws and imperfections of the characters, the banter God, how I loved the b [...]
