It’s always so wonderful to return to Hope Falls, Melanie Shawn’s creation of a town filled with warm caring citizens, extended families, and of course the proverbial alpha males and sassy females, ready to dose us with some heartfelt romance, heated passion and unconditional love.


The firefighter and the documentary filmmaker; dreams big and hearts filled with young love and a future they had planned breaks apart as circumstances pull them apart and sends them on a different course of life.

Eli Bishop and Mackenzie Sutton, years apart have created their careers as a firefighter and filmmaker respectively, and with Mackenzie coming to Hope Falls to make a documentary, fate seems to dangle a second chance with the promise of a white picket fence, two kids and a dog…. yet with so many unanswered questions burning between them, will the chemistry and passion be enough to give them a second lease of life?

As always, visiting Hope Falls is a pleasure, as you re-visit the founding characters and briefly glimpse how their HEA has turned out, and with the sister duo of Melanie and Shawna adding “Fire And Love” between Eli and Mackenzie, how can the story not be charming and heart warming.

As always reading Melanie Shawn is just loads of fun, followed by tingling sensations, heart palpitations and intense satisfaction of reading a good romance that warms the heart and brings immense pleasure.
