From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel about courage, hope, and learning to love against all odds. Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she's seen her fair share of them, and she's a total pro at other people's tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to give up her whole life and move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own. The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie's old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a "lady" on the crew--even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie, who doesn't seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can't think about that. Because love is girly, and it's not her thing. And don't forget the advice her old captain gave her: Never date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping...and it means risking it all--the only job she's ever loved, and the hero she's worked like hell to become. Katherine Center's Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt and healing tour-de-force about the strength of vulnerability, the nourishing magic of forgiveness, and the life-changing power of defining courage, at last, for yourself.… (más)

I love firefighter romances and this one is definitely going in my favorites!! Fun voice in this one! A firefighter from Austin is forced to relocate to Boston to care for an ailing parent. Strong female characters, great firefighter camaraderie and good family dynamics.

This one hooked me from the start with the great storytelling. Cassie is strong, one of the guys, doesn’t let stuff get her down, and is snarky and smart to boot. I LOVED all the firehouse pranking and the relationship between her and “Rookie” as they settled into their new firehouse in Boston. And as that relationship developed, it was such a great romance. Really good backstories that worked and added to the overall story, and the mystery plot line that came in later was awesome. This book was just a complete win from start to finish. 5/5 stars.

Trigger Warnings: rape, cancer, abandonment

This was a really interesting read for me, mostly because of the insights it gave into what it would be like to be a female firefighter and the struggles and changes that need to be made to be accepted into an old school brotherhood firehouse. I had a period earlier in life where I wanted to be a firefighter so this really spoke to me, and I think it is pretty accurate the advice Cassie's female chief gave her, which is basically to be a gender-neutral robot, and even then they will still not accept you as one of them.

I also really liked the strength of Cassie's character and that she was not afraid to be the best knowing how hard she had worked to get there. Her process of working through her past emotional and physical trauma and the author's insights on forgiveness were well done and made sense with Cassie's character.

My main complaint with the book was Cassie's relationship with the Rookie, which was basically an instalust situation, which ok fine can happen, but for the amount of contact that we see in the book it switches a bit unrealistically from instalust to love and the whole nine yards. Their relationship was not all bad though, and I really liked how accepting the Rookie was of Cassie's strong personality, that he liked her even when she was trying to be the gender-neutral robot, that he was very in-tune to the turmoil she was going through and understood that their relationship would have more blowback for her then him.

Overall an enjoyable read, although not a light feel-good read if that is what you are looking for.

CW: Sexual assault (mainly off page references but one scene with some more detail although not explicit description of the acts) and harassment ( )

This is one of my favorite books this year. It has a few layers to it. The story of a mother seeking to make amends with a daughter she left behind when she left her marriage. The story of a female firefighter trying to make her way in a job she loves but one that is primarily male dominated. And then the story of two young firefighters finding romance. I love Cassie. She is so strong, brave and flawed. I don’t want to go into details because the story is so good, I want you to read the book. If I start talking about the things that touched me, what made me angry, what made me laugh and what made me sigh, happily, I know I will tell too much. If you have a book club, you definitely want this book on the list. There is so much to discuss! If you aren’t in a book club, read it and send me a message. I’ll discuss it with you. Or find a buddy reader. Just read this book. It is one of the most interesting books I have read this year.
I read an advanced reader’s copy that I won. My understanding is that a discussion guide will be available online. I will be looking for that. I keep a notebook just to write down my answers and thoughts. I find that entertaining. I probably should find a local book club but, as an introvert, this fits me. Put this book on your TBR and look for it’s release in August. ( )

Another great book from Katherine Center. I loved How to Walk Away as well, which was my first intro to this author. My only complaint was the ending felt a little rushed, but it's a satisfying read with well-wrought characters and solid writing. I'll be reading more of this author's works. ( )

For every woman who has ever had to be brave.
And for the folks in the world who make a choice to be helpers.
And for my hilarious and good-hearted volunteer firefighter husband, Gordon. This book would be about ten pages long without his help. He told me a hundred hilarious and heartbreaking firefighting stories, walked me through all his EMS skills, read draft after draft for accuracy, and fielded countless questions like,"What is firefighter slang for 'vomit'."

As if you don't always lose by definition when you push the people who love you away.
"There's all this toughness about you—but the most impressive thing about that toughness, I think, is that you built it to protect the tenderness."
Maybe all happiness could ever hope to be was a tiny interruption from sorrow.
