"First, his fiancée was murdered. Next, a dear friend. Is an arsonist targeting firehouse chaplain Jake Rollins through his loved ones? FBI agent Chloe Davis is on the case--even though it brings her far too close to the handsome pastor. Chloe has always worked undercover, trusting only herself. How can she believe a man who says he knows her--and loves her--for who she is?

Jack Rollins was a firefighter until he got hurt in a fire and now is the firehouse chaplain and pastor in his small coastal town. First his fiancee is murdered, than a dear friend, and it looks like the same arsonist in both fires and that someone is out to get anyone who gets close to Jake. So the FBI is called in and Chloe Davis has been assigned to the case. She is used to working on her own, but Jake Rollins is a man who is starting to get to her. Can they find the vengeful killer before anyone else gets hurt?
This was a good suspenseful story. I wasn't sure who the arsonist was myself until near the end of the book. It is book 3 in the Emerald Coast 911 series and I am enjoying the fact the the characters from the other books all tie in with this story too. Although you can read each book by itself, it is always nice to have characters from other books that you have come to know stay a part of the whole series. ( )

Jake Rollins used to be a firefighter until he sustained an injury forcing him to give it up. He is now pastor of a church and the fire department Chaplin. He loves what he does and has a great relationship with people. So why is it that someone is trying to hurt him by going after the people he cares about.

Chloe Davis is a special agent with the FBI and a good friend of Gabe Sloan (we met them both in Moving Target). Gabe requests that Chloe come down to assist in the investigation because of her expertise in Serial Crimes. Jake is afraid to let anyone close because of what's happening and Chloe just doesn't believe anyone could ever love her and that she could ever put down roots. Will they discover what God has in store for them or will it be too late?

This was another great story in the Emerald Coast 911 Series. I love how the author intertwines the characters from the previous stories but not in such a way that you would feel lost if you didn't read them. I also really like that you don't exactly know who the villain is until the end. The author does a great job in pointing out that God is still in control when life throws us a curve. Jake was such a great character. He could have been bitter but he chose to trust the Lord. Chloe had a hard time trusting but Jake was patiently showing her. I love the "cookie" example. (you have to read the story). I would definitely recommend Smoke Screen! She keeps you turning pages from beginning to end. For a much richer series I recommend you read Perfect Target (Bayley & Cruse's story) and Moving Target (Sailor & Gabe's story) first. Looking forward to reading Flashpoint (Lara & Matt's story). ( )

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, Even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.

Many, many thanks are due to all those who contributed to making this book a reality.

For the technical info, I have to give credit to those way smarter than I am for so much that I didn't know. Any mistakes . . . well, those I'll take full credit for.

So, gracias, merci, xie xie, grazie, thank you, thank you, thank you . . .

First, to my family, for being so understanding, and (almost) always supportive of having pizza just one more time.

To my awesome editor, Melissa Endlich and my amazing agent, Barbara Collins Rosenberg---it's my great honor to be working with you.

To my writing "support group," Brenda Minton, Catherine Mann and Holly La Pat---for the brainstorming, coffee breaks, late-night critiques and super-fast reads, especially when you are so busy with your own work.

To Brian Stampfl, of CSI Seattle---for answering my questions and keeping from making dumb mistakes.

To Joe and Susie Endry---for your generosity, I wouldn't have made my deadline without you!

Finally, to Joe Reeder, firefighter-EMT with Bay County Fire-Rescue---for help, for letting your wife befriend the new pastor's wife, for what you do every day. I'm truly thankful.

"Units requested for structure fire at 1215 Conch Drive. Flames visible." Jake Rollins tossed the red bubble light onto the dash of his 4Runner as the scanner continued its commentary from the floorboard. He was going to miss his meeting.
    The calls sometimes came in the middle of the night. Fire didn't have an alarm clock and accidents didn't have a time schedule. Little children didn't get lost---and found---according to what was convenient for emergency personnel.
