Description of I’ll Be There

From a USA Today bestselling and RITA-award winning author, a novel uniting two beloved series:

Smokejumper Conner Young can’t wait to marry the woman who’s stood by him for three years as he fought fires in the forests of the northwest. The only wound in the weekend is the lack of his best man–a brother whose murder is still unsolved. It’s unfinished business that haunts him, keeping him from truly moving on.

Liza Beaumont, long time Deep Haven artist is a survivor of a brutal grizzly attack. Struggling with nightmares, she’s not sure she’s ready to join Conner’s world. He’s a hero, yes, but his life is rife with danger and stress and frankly she’s not sure she has the courage to be the wife of a man who may not come home again.

When Liza’s wedding invitation unearths a witness in his brother’s murder, Conner’s hope of solving the case is reignited. Suddenly, it’s a choice between showing up to help Liza knit together their perfect day–or tracking down his brother’s killer. But when his investigation finds its way to Deep Haven, and Liza’s life is threatened, there may not be a wedding at all.

What happens when the smokejumpers from Montana Fire come to Deep Haven? Sparks, fire and hopefully…a happy ending.

My review of I’ll Be There

I loved I’ll Be There!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this whole series (Deep Haven/Montana Fire)
This latest book is Liza and Conner’s story. Liza is the pottery maker from book #2 Playing With Fire and Conner is one of the fire jumpers from Montana.
I have loved all of the Christiansens and their extended family in Deep Haven. The books all have characters you fall in love with and stories are packed full of action as well as high emotions.
I love the way the spiritual message is carried throughout the whole book not just woven in at the end.
These books can be read as stand alone books, each tells a complete story, but it is so much better when you know the story of each person in the book. (In my opinion)
If you like a good, clean love story that has a spiritual message, you will love this book and the whole series. Pick up a copy for the weekend, you won’t be sorry you did.

About the author

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I’m a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.
