Wildfire Gets 5-Star Review – Readers’ Favorite

“THE suspense romance to read if you’re looking for something fresh and exciting.” – Tammy Ruggles, Readers’ Favorite (5 Stars)

I thoroughly enjoyed writing this book, and it brings me great pleasure to know others enjoy reading it. I hope if you take a chance on this, you’ll let me know what you think!

Tammy’s review continued:

“…Orion and Matt are characters you can fall in love with–rich, full human beings with pasts, secrets, flaws, and issues. And these characters are perfect for the plot lines that Strife has dropped them into. Just when Orion is getting back on her feet from a past she’d rather put behind her, and with the help of new romantic interest Matt, a small but deadly piece of metal shows up in her pocket, and this sets the stage for her nightmare to start all over again. Throw this scenario in with the mix of Montana mystery, and you have the makings of a Lifetime movie or Hallmark, as it’s a bit of a holiday story as well. It isn’t a book that gives the story away all at once. You have to keep reading. And it is lightly faith-based, which works well with the holiday theme. Bonus material appears at the end, so that’s a real treat for fans of this author.

The plot alone is enough to keep you invested in the story but the characters are what stand out even more. They are realistic, they bounce well off one another, and when Strife uses them to tell her heart-pounding story, things heat up quickly in all areas. This could be just any other romance thriller, but it isn’t. It’s one of the best ones, thanks to the author’s great laser-point attention to detail, visceral descriptions, and punchy dialogue. It all works together perfectly, and this is just what you want in a story that draws you in and keeps you there–and then has you wanting more. Romantic suspense is an often underappreciated genre, but Wildfire (Embers on Ice Book 2) by Elysia Lumen Strife elevates it to the next level of entertainment.”

Embers: New Book & Why It’s Darker than the First.

I realized it would probably behoove me to explain the reason Wildfire isn’t ALL fun and lighthearted like A Christmas in Montana. (Spoiler alert!) There’s more suspense and mystery in book two, and here’s the reason: Continue reading “Embers: New Book & Why It’s Darker than the First.”
