    When the past and future collide

    Cassie is a 20-something firefighter in Austin, Texas. She has climbed the ranks with her fearless, yet level-headed approach to being a firefighter. Originally destined for medical school, she first became and EMT and then moved on to being a paramedic when she realized how much this suited her personality. She’s tiny but powerful. And her mannerisms make her a perfect fit for the firehouse. When presented with an award from the city for a heroic effort, she is face to face with someone from her past. Her reaction changes the course of her life. Cassie is confronted with things that she can’t treat the same way she could in the past. What was once easy is now hard. Cassie is forced to learn many lessons about herself and forgiveness along the way. I didn’t quite know how to categorize this book as I read it. At times it felt like a romance novel, but then it would detour off into contemporary fiction or suspense. It is a book that can’t be simply classified into one genre or another. It is about family and love and life and the wrenches that are often thrown our way just when we think we have it all figured out. It was a great read. I didn’t expect to love it the way I did, or to quite fall in love with Cassie the way I did. Katherine Center made Cassie real not so much with her bravery, but with her more fallible characteristics. In fact, there is a lot of human frailty in this book. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend.

    Excellent Book

    This is the first book I've read by Katherine Center. I was drawn in by the title, cover, and description of the story and I'm SO glad that I was able to read this book!! I'm honestly not even sure where to begin with this review. After I finished reading the book I wondered if I was the only person that was touched so profoundly by the writing. There were so many portions to the story that stood out to me I found myself highlighting parts on my Kindle and I went back to reread the sections I highlighted. From there, I decided to see if I truly was the only one that was touched so profoundly... and I discovered that I'm not. As I was reading others thoughts on the book someone named Erin (whom I don't even know) mentioned that this author has a way of writing fiction that 'settles deep in your soul', and that is the truth!! This is what I'm trying to convey to people that are considering reading the book.... read it, you won't regret it. The story is beautifully written and you will feel hope, inspired, freed, after reading. The story is about Cassie. She is a female firefighter that experienced trauma in her younger days... specifically on her 16th birthday. She has risen above the experiences the best should could until an event happens that catapults her life in to a different direction. This story is about Cassie's journey in finding forgiveness and love. All of the characters in the story were wonderfully written. I found myself laughing, smiling, scared, learning, loving, crying, and feeling forgiveness. I would highly recommend reading this book. I hope that you enjoy the story as much as I did. *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances

    First off, if Katherine Center writes it I’m going to read it, and so should you. Things You Save In a Fire is just the latest amazing novel from this marvelous author. Her stories take some monumental events in people’s lives and walk you through how they deal with them. The good, the bad, the pain, the happiness, it’s all there. Makes you laugh and makes you cry and gives you a lot to think about. Cassie has had a lot thrown at her in her life but she has succeeded despite that. She’s a decorated firefighter, one of the best at the job. The way she has done that, though, is to push the bad parts down and ignore them. And now circumstances have come together that will make her confront her past and the things she’s been avoiding. Being forced to leave her forward-thinking modern firehouse in Texas where she feels so at home and join a tough, old-school firehouse in Boston where she is unwelcome is not easy. Nor is suddenly living with the ailing mother she’s been more or less estranged from since she was sixteen. Pushing the feelings down wasn’t dealing with them and meant her life was her work and nothing else. No friends, no dating, no relationships. Now she is discovering she can’t avoid those feelings when she is face-to-face with her mother and others on a daily basis. And the Boston firehouse. Well, to say they don’t want her there is an understatement. She has to prove herself over and over and still struggles to fit in. Someone in the firehouse is trying to force Cassie out, by harming her or even harming her mother. The last piece of advice her female captain in Texas gave her was fit in, and most of all don’t date a firefighter. She’s trying, but it’s not easy. Cassie’s not the only newbie in the Boston firehouse. There’s a rookie – and there is definitely something sparking between the two of them. But she can’t jeopardize her job, and as things keep getting worse and more dangerous her she doesn’t know if she can even trust him. Things You Save In a Fire is a story with everything – excitement, danger, mystery, emergencies, fires – but most of all it’s a beautifully told tale about learning to forgive, to love, and to stop and think and listen and face what has hurt you. Tissue alert: a few chapters in you learn that Cassie was the first firefighter on the scene after Margaret’s accident in How to Walk Away. I had the same reaction as when I read that (marvelous, terrific, wonderful) book and it was a nice tie-in. Katherine Center's Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt, affecting novel about life and love with characters you will care deeply about. Thanks so much to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I thoroughly enjoyed Things You Save in a Fire and recommend it without hesitation.

    Read this book!

    This was fantastic! This book made me feel things. Lots of things. I was holding my breath because I was so worried about the characters. I was afraid to turn the page but couldn't put the book down. It was the kind of reading experience that turned me into such a big reader. If only every book was able to grab me as this one did. I guess you could say that I enjoyed this book. Cassie is a firefighter. At the start of the book, she works at a station in Texas but things soon get a little crazy and Cassie finds herself needing a new station. Cassie has also been asked by her mother to move in with her for the next year to help out since she is losing her sight. So Cassie finds herself moving to Boston to help a mother that she hasn't been close to since she was a teen and starting a job with a new crew at a firehouse that is very different than anything she is used to. I loved watching Cassie work to navigate the unfamiliar fire station. She is the first woman to work at the facility and not everyone is thrilled to have her on board. She feels that constantly forced to prove her worth to the others on the crew. She is also having a difficult time connecting with her mother. Cassie really doesn't want to deal with all of the feelings that come into play when she thinks about what her mother has done. When I started reading this book, I didn't expect that romance would come into play. But it did and I must say that I am happy that it was a part of the story. I loved The Rookie. Every scene that he shared with Cassie put a smile on my face. He really was such a nice guy and I thought that he was really good for Cassie. I loved their chemistry and the way they seemed to understand and open up to each other. It is a good thing that The Rookie is a fictional character because if he was real, I think that Cassie would have more than a little competition. I loved the way this story was laid out. The pacing of the story was perfect. We learn things just as we need to. Most readers would be able to figure out some of the key points before the character is ready to share. I thought that this was very effective. I thought I knew what happened to Cassie so it was really powerful when it was finally confirmed. There were some pretty intense scenes and some really heartfelt moments and they were all beautifully done. I would highly recommend this book to others. This was a wonderful story of learning to forgive, standing up for yourself, and putting everything on the line for those you care about. My only complaint would be that the ending was a little too happily ever after but I will take it. I plan to read much more of Katherine Center's work soon! I received a review copy of this book from St. Martin's Press.
