Dallas Fire &rescue: ghost fire by G.g. andrew



36394262When tenacious writer Laney Stonewater ropes firefighter Lucas Moore into staying overnight at the supposedly haunted Cattleman’s Crossing Inn, both of them will get more than they bargained for. The inn was the site of a blaze that killed a man 20 years ago and left Lucas with a strange burn mark on his arm and memories he’d rather forget. Along with a psychic, the victim’s widow, and an amateur ghost hunter, Laney and Lucas set out to learn if Cattleman’s Crossing went up in flames due to a simple mistake…or something much more sinister.

As the night grows darker–and the inn grows warmer, stranger, and more surreal–Laney and Lucas discover they’ve got a connection that burns as hot as any blaze and could have staying power beyond the haunted walls of the inn.


But first they must survive the night. ~

Review:

G.G. Andrew’s always has a new *spooky-ish* romance just in time for the Halloween season and this year it’s Ghost Fire.

Laney Stonewater is writing a story about the 20th anniversary of the Cattleman’s Crossing Inn fire.
Her plan is to reunite the survivors – the victim’s widow and a firefighter Lucas Moore, who was a child at the time - for a night at the haunted inn on the anniversary of the fire, to share their memories, along with a ghost hunter and psychic. Even though she doesn’t believe in ghosts or that the inn is haunted this could be the story that gives Laney her big break.

Lucas has been haunted by the fire since he was a child and never wants to go back to the inn again but his protective instincts for Laney compel him to since she’s staying at the inn whether he goes or not.

This is a fun little story. Despite there being a lot of skepticism from Laney’s side and resistance from Lucas, they have a quite a bit of chemistry and they just work as a couple even though it’s rather fast. For a quick novella, they are given quite a bit of background and romantic tension with a believable HFN ending.

The night at the inn isn’t over the top scary but it was spooky with a few unexpected twists, making this a another fun Halloween read by Andrew’s.

*I also recommend G.G. Andrew’s Crazy, Sexy, Ghoulish trilogy. The first book – Crazy, Sexy Ghoulish is a freebie on Amazon It's is more fun romcom than scary.

I’ve only read one (Inn Love – it was cute) so I can’t speak to the quality and I believe they are all M/M but I’m not 100% sure about that.
