Private investigator, Freddie Flynn, wants nothing to do with the man who left her fifteen years ago—or the God he abandoned her for—especially if reports of corruption within high ranking levels of the P.I. firm are true. She might have to accept him as the company V.P., but she doesn’t have to trust him. Jason Bryant knows his leaving to enter the ministry cut Freddie deep, but now he’s returned to Headley Cross and wants to make amends. But Freddie’s different—jaded, distant, distrustful—so what’s he to think when a file claims Freddie is the traitor who’s sabotaging the company? Thrown together on a case that could cost them everything, including their lives, Freddie and Jason must look beyond suspicion and innuendo to catch the real traitor before it’s too late…and maybe, just maybe, they’ll find the love they once shared by listening to the still small voice that comes after the fire. 





Excerpt


 

She paused. "I’m sorry, Jason. I shouldn’t have said all that stuff, and I shouldn’t have been rude to you. I suppose you called the office and told the boss I’m working the forbidden case?"
 
 
"Now why would I do that?" He looked at her over the coffee cup. His tone was abrupt, and she knew he was mad at her.
 
 
"Because you’re the vice president, and I’m defying orders."
 
 
Jason gave her a long hard look. "Yes I am, and yes you are. But no, I haven’t rung the office. I rang the boss before I left work. He knows you’re undercover on one of the cases, but I didn’t tell him which, because I didn’t know at the time."
 
 
"You can’t tell him." Fear knotted her stomach, and the tiny bit of sandwich she’d eaten felt like a ten-pound rock.
 
 
"Why not? Because he specifically said to leave the Rafferty case alone?"
 
 
"Partly. I can’t tell you. I’m sorry. You have to trust that I have a very good reason."
 
 
Jason ate silently and finished his lunch, so deep in thought that Freddie could almost see the cogs turning in his mind. For the first time in her career, she had crossed the line and was dragging someone else down with her.

dlathambooks@gmail.com (Saturday, 18 February 2012) Rating: 5 Great romantic suspense! Revell's characters are well-rounded, believable, and wonderfully engaging. Freddie in particular becomes walk-off-the-page real with a number of quirks and hang-ups. 1) She's hauling around fifteen-years' worth of pent-up hurt and anger; 2) Without even realizing it, she longs for something to fill the loneliness inside—but not God, who has never done her any favors. He had come between her and Jason even more effectively than another woman would have. How does one compete with God, after all?; rn3) The "tough gal" image she stubbornly portrays; and 4) A quick wit and ready humor. It all adds up to an honestly good tale. Readers will lose themselves within the pages of After the Fire, and when it's time to say good-bye to Freddie and Jason, they will do so with actual regret. One can't help falling in love with both hero and heroine; and the bad guys…well, they are very, very bad. W

donnabasinow@yahoo.com (Saturday, 04 February 2012) Rating: 5 After the Fire is full of attitude - I loved it! What a spunky lead character Freddie is! She is ever on guard of her already broken heart, trying to keep it from being broken again. And on top of that, to be suspected and not trusted by the person who still holds it could be devastating.rnrnMisjudging a person is never easy to apologize for - doing it twice can be downright devastating. Jason is a man's man who stands on ethics and morals and Godly principles. But he still hasn't learned one of the golden rules - not to judge others - because what you see isn't always what it appears to be.rnrnGreat characters, great story! I loved it!

dorahiers@msn.com (Friday, 27 January 2012) Rating: 5 What a wild ride in After The Fire!rnrnMeet Freddie Flynn, a maverick Private Investigator battling bitterness and blaming God for her broken relationship, and Jason Bryant, an ex-missionary pilot who takes a position working in “Uncle” Edwin’s private investigative firm.rnrnMs. Revell did a great job setting up the conflict between Freddie and Jason. Shocked to see a file showing Freddie’s name linked with betrayal and corruption within the private investigative firm, Jason determines to prove her innocence. Freddie is not thrilled that Jason is now her boss, but she likes it even less when Jason forces her to work with him on a case.rnrnMs. Revell created a sweet romance within a beautiful setting, but don’t let that fool you. There’s plenty of action in this book as Freddie and Jason work to uncover the truth. Just when you think you’re near “The End,” Ms. Revell pulls out a few more surprises. Five stars for Aft
