Noah and his partner, Harley, are arson investigators who are trapped in the building next door to Carly’s new boutique. When Carly goes to see what the whimpering animal sounds are next to her building, her own shop goes up in flames and Noah becomes the suspect instead of just the investigator!

I have really enjoyed this series, but this book is my favorite out of them all! Paired with suspense and mystery, the storyline has a lot more depth and personality than the previous books. Not saying they are bad, just that this one is better, in my opinion. As with the other books in this series, the real star of the story is Harley, the canine arson investigator. Also, the real arsonists POV was unique and intriguing to read.  As for the romance – it was more lust at first sight and their instant love was a little hard to understand, but I was more focused on Harley than the human hero and heroine.

Overall, this is a fun, steamy, adventurous story that I enjoyed.
