"Falls Like Lightning" is the first Shawn Grady novel that I have read and it will not be the last! This is a well-written story filled with action and love. Silas and Ellie have a past and suddenly after years apart they are thrown together on the job as Silas is a smokejumper and Ellie a pilot. Seeing each other brings back memories and issues from the past and they are both currently dealing with other things in their life as the moment besides the high stress jobs that they are both involved with. In the midst of a huge fire these two realize that they are dealing with more than they both ever imagined and their feelings may have changed.
This is a great story that moves right along and will keep you wanting to read until you the end! Ellie and Silas are very "real" characters struggling with balancing their personal lives and their work. The emotions that they experience are very real as well. The high energy of the job jumps off the pages and you will be hooked on Grady's style of writing!
