When Autumn McCoy accepted a temporary work contract in Durango, she thought it would be a safe way to add some spark to her existence. She may be getting more than she bargained for when she finds herself the target of impending danger.The outspoken forty-two-year-old isn’t prepared for that spark to ignite flames threatening to engulf every aspect of her life.
Buried under the weight of responsibilities, all interim Chief of Police, Keith Blackfoot, wants is to get back to good old-fashioned detecting. He gets his chance when an encounter with a feisty redhead
seems to incite a wave of arson cases. Although a visit from friend and firefighter, Roman “Chief” Proudfit, provides some direction, he’s left to battle an invisible menace fueling fires that could leave his town—and his heart—in ashes.
Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy.
She is the author of the Cedar Tree and Portland, ME Series, the Northern Lights Collection and the Rock Point Series. She is also co-author of the SnapShot Series.

And … she does it again! Burning for Autumn is another gem from the mistress of romance and suspense, Freya Barker.
Let start by saying that I REALLY love Keith Blackfoot in this story. He’s one hot, sexy alpha cop who definitely meets his match with Autumn, a snarky, sassy researcher from Mercy Hospital’s burn unit, who happens to be new in town as well.
The attitude and banter that plays between Keith and Autumn is quite amusing. She’s fiercely independent, but Blackfoot isn’t dissuaded by her in the least. Once they find themselves on the same page, the two actually are a great couple. I also really enjoyed all the other characters in this book, whether they’re new or some we recognize from Freya’s other books.
While someone has been sending notes to Autumn, fires have been deliberately set around town and it has everything to do with her. As Keith tries to keep her safe, he and other law enforcement pull together to try and figure out who the arsonist could be. There’s sure plenty of twists and turns, and I was left on the edge of my seat wondering who was guilty.
As with all of Freya Barker’s stories, her attention to detail and description makes it so easy to lose yourself in the world she creates. Her mature characters are real people with flaws and all, which makes any one of them completely relatable. This is definitely a great start to a new series, and I love how it intertwines with Susan Stoker’s Badge of Honor series. I say the same thing about every one of Freya’s books, but she is the BEST STORYTELLER of our time! I highly recommend this one and can’t wait for more. Five stars for me!
I was given this ARC for an honest review, and honest it certainly is.
