New Release Review: Fireworks by Sarina Bowen

by Sarina Bowen
True North Book 6

Another epic love story in the USA Today bestselling series!
Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map. As if it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong? 
Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.
A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.
But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.
His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.
Things are about to go boom.

My review: 5 stars!

Listen, I had no clue that Benito Rossi would be such #bookboyfriend material! But there he went making me swoon, right along with Skye.

     Wowzers, Benito in a green dress uniform is not to be missed.

Sarina Bowen has been at the top of my one-click author list for years, and when I curl up with her novels, I know I'm going to find all the things I love in romance: hot guys, real female characters I can relate with, off the charts chemistry, and her trademark wit.

     She gives Skye and I one more measuring glance, because small towns run on coffee, pastries, and gossip.

I enjoyed the dual POV, and past-and-present storytelling as well. Since I also enjoy the suspense genre, I was happy to see a crime investigation included, something totally new to this series. I love how the author has tackled something a bit different with each book. Although Fireworks can absolutely be read as a standalone, fans of the True North Series will enjoy seeing characters from other books in the story. Bowen has created a pretty fantastic world in small-town Vermont, and I can't imagine who wouldn't enjoy a virtual trip there.
