Amish Firefighter by Laura V. Hilton (37)

A Beautiful Young Woman Banished from Home 
Abigail Stutzman thought it was bad enough being dropped at the nearest bus station and sent to live several states away with some relatives she'd never heard about, much less met. But now, just a week after her arrival in Jamesport, Missouri, she finds herself at the scene of a barn fire. An intentional barn fire. And all fingers are pointed at her. She's desperate to prove her innocence and protect her reputation, but nobody's making that easy to do. And God certainly doesn't seem willing to help. 

A Brave Firefighter with an Agenda of His Own 
Sam Miller is in the process of turning over a new leaf. Determined to atone for the follies of his past, he is a volunteer firefighter, an EMT, and a doctor–in–training. When local barn fires escalate, everyone suspects arson. And since the Miller family are among the victims, no one is more determined to see the perpetrators brought to justice than Sam. 

A Kindled Flame Neither One Could Have Anticipated 
When their paths first cross, at the site of a barn burning, the emotional intensity rivals the warmth of the flames. Soon, they must decide whether this fire is one they should feed or extinguish. And they'll discover that the truth can prove more dangerous than a blazing inferno.

REVIEW:
Wonderful story!

Oh, how I am crushing on Sam. He's such a well-crafted character in this story and he steals the show. Strong, full of good morals, and sounds like the most beautiful man inside and out, what's not to crush on?! Abigail is one lucky girl!
This town kind of angered me. How could they not know it wasn't Abigail? I knew it, just from who she was and how she acted, they should have known it too being God-fearing folk. It bothered me that some condemned her before knowing the truth.
I also didn't like her mother holding information from her like she did. Having lived through that in my life, it was hard to read through seeing it done to someone else. No parent should deny a child from knowing who their parents or family are. It's a form of abuse in my opinion. Even if done with good intentions, those are actually selfish acts disguised as good intentions.
But the writing of the story was well done, being my first time reading this author, I love the ease of flow with the writing. I also love a good Amish story, especially with some suspense thrown in.
A good start to this series. I look forward to more!

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation. Check out the site for more information on nutrients that help to safeguard th…
