Falls Like Lightning
In “Falls Like Lightning” by Shawn Grady we meet smokejumper Silas Kent. Silas grew up without any family and then he met pilot Elle Westmore. When summer came to an end, Silas left without any explanation. Elle moves on and gets married and has a little girl. Now six years later Silas and Elle meet again and Silas realizes he has never really gotten over her. Silas gets called to lead a crew to battle against a massive fire in the Sierra Nevadas and Elle is the pilot that is taking the crew to the fire, but things are not what they seem. The new crew has another agenda in mind. They have discovered gold and will do anything to get it, even if it means killing their team members. When an engine is sabotaged the crew has to parachute early and Elle has to crash the plane. Silas finds out what the crews plan is and barely escapes when they try to kill him. He finally gets away and tries to find his way to Elle, but will it be too late? This book is a page turner from the beginning. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House.
