    Sophie's a 27 year old good girl fresh out of grad school with a doctorate in entomology who doesn't have a job She's from a highly educated commune family who raised her with lots of love trust and support Zane's a 30 year old bad boy owns a landscaping company and comes from the disgraced Thorson family He grew up surrounded by hatred mistrust and violence One summer ten years ago Sophie and Zane were lovers Though they parted with angry words and misunderstandings their short time together left a mark on both of them so much so that they still feel a strong attraction to one another When they meet again ten years later at Sophie's sister's wedding Sophie says she can't find a job and Zane offers her one at his landscaping company He sees this as a chance to demean Sophie and let her see how it feels to really work for a living But what begins as Zane's attempt to denigrate Sophie ends in Sophie trying to find the killer who's framing Zane for murderThough they continually argue with one another Sophie knows that Zane has worked hard to be a better person than his father and brother She's seen the sensitive and caring side of Zane that everyone else in town overlooks and she knows that Zane could never hurt anybodyZane's suffered through the town's scorn all of his life due to the cruelty of his family His father's in jail for murder and his brother's been on the run for several years When a young woman's body is discovered on Zane's property the police automatically assume Zane is the killer Sophie's the only one who comes to his defense much to the chagrin of her family It's hard for Zane to accept her help Not only does he uestion her motivations but he's not used to having anyone be nice to him UP IN FLAMES is a wonderful story of overcoming prejudices and ignoring rumors to do what's morally right It also shows us that your past doesn't always have to dictate your future and that honest communication can break down prejudices UP IN FLAMES is also a good mystery It's filled with lots of shady characters and potential suspects and includes some surprising twists And Sophie gets to use her entomology knowledge to help with the case The story kept me guessing until the final reveal Really I couldn't figure it out until thenSo if you're looking for a great mystery or an interesting romance UP IN FLAMES is the right book for you It's a perfect story to read on the beach or curled up in a warm chair on a rainy day It has an interesting good girlbad boy vibe AND it doesn't end on a cliffhanger Just make sure you have a lot of time to read You might find you can't put the book down until you've read the very last page I received a copy of this book from Simon SchusterPocket Books and Edelweiss for an honest review Also follow my reviews on the Blue Moon Mystery Saloon blog

    Up in Flames by Starr Ambrose is a Pocket Books publication This book was released in July 2013 This is the third in the Barringer's Pass seriesSophie and Zane had an intense but brief thing back when Sophie was seventeen Their educational and class differences not to mention Zane's rather down beat options for the future broke the two up Sophie went on to earn an Phd and Zane even without an education owns his own business Now ten years later Sophie and Zane meet againZane believes Sophie humiliated him and Sophie just had a broken heart When Zane learns Sophie is unemployed he offers her a job Not out of the goodness of his own heart however He has visions of Sophie with her highfalutin degree out in the hot sun lifting heavy rocks and taking heat from the crew for not being able to hold up her end Sophie senses the challenge and shows up for workBut things backfire on Zane in a big way when Sophie discovers a dead body buried on his propertyZane's family has been in big trouble with the law So people jump to conclusions and presume Zane is guilty of murder Sophie doesn't think he's guilty and since the cops are looking for evidence against Zane she decides to do a little detective work herself The problem is she has gotten someone mighty upset This a light romantic suspense novel Sophie has an odd ball degree in Entomology a bug doctor Her area of expertise comes in handy eventually She and Zane still have an attraction for each other but it seems that circumstances are against them Zane pretty much expects to be arrested for murder and is just waiting for them to come and get him He doesn't do a lot to defend himself or protect himself But when it comes to Sophie he doesn't want his family's reputation to drag her down The plot was certainly imaginative I couldn't have been easy to write a story around exotic insects and spiders The romance was alright Zane was a good guy fighting against the town's prejudice but he was also too uick to give in and give up Sophie does give him a little inspiration in that area in the long run Not a bad story all in all I give this one C

    This was a tough read since the hero was such a d bag for a good part of the book I know this was the author's intention and I love him now Good twist of a bad guy and a dead girl I really didn't feel sorry for The heroine pulled a couple of moves that made me say Seriously? Do you want to die? but otherwise I enjoyed the story
