Contemporary Fiction

Fire by Lynnette Bonner. A Review.

She’s a first-year teacher in a school where kids are dying because of a new drug.
He’s an undercover cop who’s been sent in to find the dealer.

Years ago, Kyra Radell’s brother died from a drug addiction, so when students in her new school start buying a new street drug called Fire—and dying because of it—she’s determined to help in any way she can. Even if that means putting her own life in danger.

Case Lexington, an undercover cop, has been sent in to pose as a high school senior. He wants her to stay safe and mind her own business. The only problem is, she’s not willing to listen to a mere student.

Can he protect her and keep his cover intact? More importantly, will he be able to find the drug dealer before any more students—or teachers—die?


Wow so the book starts off with a bang from the first sentence and keeps you turning the pages until you get to the end.

I haven’t read any romantic suspense written by Lynnette Bonner but I’ve read other books from her that I really enjoyed.

It was fun getting to know Kyra and Case and could there have been a better meet cute 😄. It’s not everyday a cop walks into your salon requesting a manicure.

Then Kyra moving to her new place of work and finding out case is a student I’m sure that threw her in for a loop till she gets read in on his undercover mission.

From here on it’s one adventure after the other from losing students to getting clues on who the dealer might be, getting shot at and nearly burnt alive and finally falling in love in the process.

I love how despite all these, they learn to trust that God is in control. They definitely cannot do it all on their own, He has to be involved in every aspect.

I recommend this book to every one who is a fan of romantic suspense. You definitely won’t be sorry

My Rating 5 of 5stars

Born and raised in Malawi, Africa. Lynnette Bonner spent the first years of her life reveling in warm equatorial sunshine and the late evening duets of cicadas and hyenas. The year she turned eight she was off to Rift Valley Academy, a boarding school in Kenya where she spent many joy-filled years, and graduated in 1990.
That fall, she traded to a new duet–one of traffic and rain–when she moved to Kirkland, Washington to attend Northwest University. It was there that she met her husband and a few years later they moved to the small town of Pierce, Idaho.
During the time they lived in Idaho, while studying the history of their little town, Lynnette was inspired to begin the Shepherd’s Heart Series with Rocky Mountain Oasis.
Marty and Lynnette have four children, and currently live in Washington where Marty pastors a church
