    1. Deadly fire, old unrequited love, shameful secrets, discovery of horrible betrayal, murder, love found, and a great twist at the end. I try never to give spoilers so I really can't say more without giving away parts of the story, suffice to say that Fire Away is a great piece of storytelling by author R.L. Syme. Complaints? Only that I wanted more. The Texas Sunrise box set of five different stories, by five great writers, all occurring in Somewhere, TX is a magnificent collaboration between wri [...]

Only going out when needed and to work, when he sees Claire again helping his sister put with her weeding something changes and he sees her Ina new light.

    3. Fire Away was a very quick read with a lot of twists and turns. This story had conflict, drama, mystery, and romantic tension. I found the main characters to be interesting and troubled. Although I was able to get a solid understanding about Aidan and Claire's relationship from reading the full story, I did feel that there could have been more. Also, I must say that I felt slightly cheated in terms of the solidification of the protagonists emotional relationship. I was left with many questions.

    4. My daughter told me about the book so I ordered it. I loved it. A short read but it didn't lack for sex appeal. No foul language to speak of - a big thing for me. Someone has reopened a cold case and the heat has turned up and they want to see Aidan Conley burn. Who comes to his defense, Claire Milton his high school best friend and the sister of his late wife. She believes he is innocent and is determined to prove it.Definitely worth the read!

    5. A hot firefighter, a 10 year unsolved murder, secrets, lies, and deception, a romantic spark this book has it all! The characters are well developed and the plot is intricate and full of surprises! This is not one of those books where you will figure out who dunnit a few chapters in, it will keep you guessing till the end!

    6. I really enjoyed this book a great deal. It wasn’t your simple case little sister loving her older sister’s boyfriend then husband. This was a true murder mystery that needed to be deemed an accident. Marin Conley is getting married in a few weeks to the governor’s son. Her big brother Captain Aidan Conley a fireman can’t stand him but he loves his sister so it’s all good.As much as he hates the town of Somewhere, Texas where he lives and works he agrees to go to a cake tasting for Mar [...]

    9. Anxiety and tension rises, when ten year old murder case has been taken under a fresh investigation. Intriguing setup and start on the story pulled me in. There's tension and jitters at the cake tasting that's unexpected. And soon as the story unfolds, secrets are brought into the daylight, more questions answered, the reasons for all the angst starts to make sense.Aidan is a stand up guy, a hero firefighter, who feels like an outcast in his hometown, only going there to work, keeping to himself [...]

    10. Dang I just cannot get a winner lately. This is my second review of the day with decent premise but lackluster execution. First let me say that this blurb is a little misleading. I thought that this would be a book about a heroine who discovers info about someone else's marriage after the wife's death and hero needs to protect her. Um no not so much. This is a story about how the hero's wife died like 8 years ago and now the case has been reopened. Also misleading is the tidbit about her choosin [...]

    11. Claire Milton is back in Somewhere, TX, her life in shambles. She has lost her job, her savings, and the support of even her parents. She has an idea that will put everything back on track.

    12. What do you do when you are in love with your high school best friend who by the way happens to be your dead wife's sister? Talk about trouble waiting to happen! Yep you read that correctly! Aidan is for the most part a hermit but he comes into town to help out his sister only to reconnect with Claire who happens to be at the same bakery trying to find the perfect cupcake for her new business. Claire has always had feelings for Aidan and never believed any of the rumors that he had anything to d [...]

    13. Fire Away by R. L. Syme has created a fiery read that readers will find both alluring and captivating. Claire Milton has finally come back to Somewhere, Texas. Once there she heads over to her friend’s bakery for a taste-testing at the bakery. While at the bakery, Claire bumps into her best friend Aidan Conley. He was the Captain and sports town hero. And he was still single. But when Claire finds out that her best friend and first crush, Aidan was not so happily married to is wife who died in [...]

    14. When a story starts out with two people meeting eyes across a cupcake tasting that involve jalapenos - then I know I may have found me fictional soul mates. I really really loved both Claire and Aiden, My only problem was the whole sister thing - but that was addressed and resolved very well. In fact, resolving that issue was a good chunk of the book, and it was handled very well.There's a good dose of suspense as Aiden begins his own investigation into what happened to his deceased wife. There' [...]

    15. This is another book that pulls you into the story. I wasn't sure where this story was going to take me but I went along to find out. R.L. came up with a good "grab you " story line. It took a short bit but then the story took off. The story was full of hard, strong people that wouldn't give up. I usually don't read Fire Station stories but I am glad that I read this story. This really wasn't a need lots of tissues story but you really felt it. Aidan was with the Fire Station and kept to himself [...]

    16. This was my first book by R.L. Syme and I have to say I was impressed. Fire away is about a guy who has lived as a recluse after the death of his life and the loss of his best friend (his sister in law). Everyone suspected him of killing his wife so now he stays away only going to town when he has to work at the firehouse. When his sister is in need, he does what any brother would and goes to a wedding cake tasting. And to his surprise.ere is Claire. It's been years and their feelings for each o [...]

    17. I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I have not read books 1 or 2 in this series.I really enjoyed this story. Aiden and Claire are such likable people right off the bat, and their past history makes their budding romance believable. I was anticipating a more steamy romance and I was very pleasantly surprised NOT to find it in this story! The story did very well without the gratuitous sexual scenes often found in romance stories and this one did not need any to [...]

    18. A short book with a romance/murder/mystery story. A two person narrative, this book is about Aidan Conley who shares a cake tasting with a ghost from his past. Claire Milton is the sister of his dead wife Jane and at one time was his best friend. Claire never believed he was responsible for his sister's death but at the time was forced to comply with her parent's wishes and moved away from Somewhere. TX, completely losing touch with him for about 10 years. Without warning the case of his wife's [...]

    19. It's obvious that our boy Aidan has a little hard-on for Claire I mean they do have a past together (no not what you're thinking a different sort of past), "Claire leaned against the back of his red pickup, her blonde hair cascading over one shoulder, providing a sharp contrast to the color of his truck. He couldn't have seen a more welcome sight." At the end of the day Aidan knows what he wants, "I don't need to figure anything out. I know what I want." He held her face still with his good hand [...]

    20. I love Claire and Aidan. This is a great love story that saw a love rekindled. Aidan and Claire hadn't seen each other in ten years. She has loved him since she was a teenager and and he was in love with her sister, Jane. After her sister's death her family left Somewhere and people thought Aidan was the responsible for the death. Claire never stopped believing in Aidan and he never forgot about Claire. As the case is reopened Aidan is arrested and things get crazy. Who killed Aidan's wife? Why [...]

    21. I absolutely loved this book! It was fast paced, had a great storyline and characters. Aidan has lived under a cloud of suspicion of killing his wife for over ten years. Claire, his wife's sister and his best friend that he hasn't seen since her death has returned to town. When the cold case is opened and Aiden is arrested for his wife's murder, it is Claire who helps him, and together they find out what happened. I have never read a book by R. L. Syme before, but I definitely plan to check out [...]

    22. Honest review in exchange for copy from Netgallery.The first couple chapters are a hard for me to follow, a great over all read. Just so much information to throw out there to set the tone at first. Afterwards it's pure gold. Mystery, past secrets, memories & yummy cake creations! I admit I want to try some of these concoctions! (recipes included) Very detailed scene setting and love that you get both sides of the story as you go between the two. I wish we could have more, and hope the autho [...]

    23. I was lucky enough to have gotten this book from NetGalley in exchange for a review, which I am happy to provide. This was a pretty fast and intense read, it immediately snared my attention and I was at the edge of my seat until the end. I loved the characters and the plot line, the only negative thing I have to say is that the ending felt a bit rushed and I was sorry it was over so fast. R.L. Syme provided a great read and I can't wait to read her next installment. As a special treat the book e [...]

    24. Fire AwayIs a short story of romance and a murder mystery.Aidan Conley has been living in hiding for the past ten years only going to work.

Claire has always believed that Aiden is innocent. Together they set out to prove that Aiden is innocent. There are a few twist and turns in the story. It's a fast read and very grippi [...]

    25. Fire Away pulled me in from the very start. I did not read the two books prior to this in the series, but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the book. I feel that you could easily read this as a stand alone novel, or even just to whet your appetite for the others in this series. A short read -- I wish there was a little more sizzle -- there was plenty of setup. Aidan is incredibly swoon-worthy. I still give this 5 stars for such a great plot for the dollar.

    26. The suspense of the cold case involving a fire that made Aidan a widow is opened once more. Claire his wife's sister is back into town years after the fire. she becomes the only hope for Aidan to be cleared, but the closer they get more dangerous it is. I couldn't put this one down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. I highly recommend this one!

    27. Wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could not put it down and finished it in one day! I loved the story and the plot twist had me guessing right until the last minute!!LOVED IT

    28. 4.5/5.0"Fire Away" is a quick read, but certainly not lacking in emotional turmoil, drama, and suspense!Read full review in the 2015 July/August issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    29. Great who done it. You keep guessing up to the end. The love story of two people pulled apart by fire and family is heart wrenching. NOT a sexy book but a good love story. I enjoyed it.

    30. Felt more like novella length, but good gripping story about Aiden and Claire and battling their pasts. I will admit I hadn't guessed who the bad guy was before he was revealed.
