Mark and Allie Branning never planned on a marriage that turned out like this. One night of weakness on Mark's part, Allie discovering his not so platonic relationship with the beautiful paramedic Issie, and their marriage is over as far as Allie is concerned. Not willing to get a divorce on the spot, they choose to separate instead; Mark moving out to his own apartment, and Allie staying at home and continuing to run the florist shop they own.
But when a firefighter's wife is shot and burned in her own home, the game they are playing becomes a dangerous one. Thinking a murderer is on the loose, Mark wants to protect Allie from any harm that may come to her. When a second firefighter's wife is killed, the stakes grow ever higher for the Branning's dying marriage. Unsure of whether Allie will be safe as Mark is also a firefighter, he does everything to protect Allie from the murderer who seems determined to leave firefighters as widowers. But when Allie becomes a target, will Mark be able to save her from her fate? Or will the decision to save their marriage be completely taken from both of their hands?
I first read this novel as a girl. I couldn't have been more than 10 years old when I saw my mom was reading this book and I just HAD to see what was so great about it. Naturally, my mother said it was way above my head, and this of course, fueled my determination to read it despite her thinking it was above my maturity level. But as it was then when I first read went through this novel, and still remains true; Blackstock brings to life a story that pulses with excitement, danger, romance, and lots and lots of mystery. And while I might not give this to my future ten year-olds to read, if they are anything like me, they are going to take it anyway and discover a whole new world waiting to be explored.

We have discovered Terri Blackstock and are wondering how we ever missed her writings. Enjoyed the first two books in this series and now ordered the other three.

This was an excellent book. It was of the same outstanding caliber as Terri Blackstock's books have all proven to be. I absolutely enjoyed it.

I love all of her books and now I have my husband reading them. It is refreshing to be able to read good Christian books without all of the vulgar material and language.

I really enjoyed this book. I really appreciate not having all the profane language or explicit descriptions of sexual acts. It is well written and holds the reader's attention.

I really enjoyed this book. Changed my mind several times as to who the killer was. I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a thriller with a good plot. Am reading the second book in the series now.

Amazing book. I couldn't put it down. I read the rest of the Newpointe 911 Series and they were just as good. It's worth buying the whole collection.

One thing I love about Terri Blackstock's books is that they have a well-developed plot line and are easy to follow. Some mystery stories have parts that you feel like you have to read 3 times in order to really grasp what they're saying. Not so with Terri's books. Now I didn't get quite as emotionally attached to her characters as in Cape Refuge, but it was an excellent book all the same.

A real murder mystery with suspense! She really captured the south Louisiana way of life that was the setting of this book. I never could anticipate which way it would end.

A wonderful suspensful book that was very hard to put down. Great love story but I agree that the ending was a little disappointing. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

A very enjoyable book. An intriguing "Who done it?" Well developed characters. A little anti-climatic at the end, but still an excellent read.
