Dallas Fire & Rescue: Ghost Fire (Kindle Worlds Novella) by G.G. Andrew
Now available on
When tenacious writer Laney Stonewater ropes firefighter Lucas Moore into staying overnight at the supposedly haunted Cattleman’s Crossing Inn, both of them will get more than they bargained for. The inn was the site of a blaze that killed a man 20 years ago and left Lucas with a strange burn mark on his arm and memories he’d rather forget. Along with a psychic, the victim’s widow, and an amateur ghost hunter, Laney and Lucas set out to learn if Cattleman’s Crossing went up in flames due to a simple mistake…or something much more sinister.
As the night grows darker–and the inn grows warmer, stranger, and more surreal–Laney and Lucas discover they’ve got a connection that burns as hot as any blaze and could have staying power beyond the haunted walls of the inn.
But first they must survive the night…
Ghost Fire was a fun read. A bit spookier than the author's other stories which I enjoyed.
Laney is writing a story for the 20th anniversary of the Cattleman's Crossing fire. One man died in the fire and to add a little more to the story she is trying to get the survivors back to stay the night there with her. To share their stories and add that personal touch even though she is a big ghost skeptic. She is sure it was just a normal fire and there is nothing to worry about.
Lucas is one of the survivors of the Cattleman's Crossing fire. He was only 9 when the fire happened and what he saw that night haunts him to this day. He doesn't want anything to do with that place. He definitely doesn't want to spend the night there. When Laney asks him to, when she asks him to share what happened so long ago, he tries to stay strong. But there is something there between them and this fireman can't say no forever. How can he say no and let her spend the night in that place? What if something were to happen to her and he wasn't there to try and help?
When the two of them spend the night, with a few other invited guests, things heat up pretty quickly. Will Laney be converted and believe in ghosts? Or will Lucas realize nothing happened all those years ago? This was a fun story and the author did a good job adding some spooky tension in there as well as the fun characters falling for each other. It was a lot of fun and a perfect Halloween read.
