I can't possibly find the right words to explain the thrill of this story. It's exciting, keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat, makes you lose sleep trying to find a place to stop for the night and has all the elements of a great, fun story. And there's even the expected romance which comes as no surprise from their first meeting. It was just plain exciting and entertaining. I loved the description of the area of Montana------it sounds so breathtakingly beautiful. Remote and yet a community of great friends banding together making it feel like a safe haven to live. However, if there's a fire----not so sure of the safety anymore. A page turner 'till the end. I highly recommend this book.

This was my first time reading a book by this author, Karen Harper. I was amazed at how she made the area in Montana jump out at you, I have grown up in Montana and have seen that area, I just loved it. She made the book seem real, and the characters were easy to fit into people I have known in Montana. I can't wait to read more of her books

Normally I love Karen Harper but I just couldn't get into this one. The second half was better, but I found the first half boring.

In Vermillion, Montana, widow bush pilot Lauren Taylor raises her two sons by herself since her firefighting spouse Ross died trying to put out a wildfire blaze two years ago. Though not easy, she has adjusted to being a single mom.

However, she becomes very concerned when she flies in Rocky Marston, who upon landing seems to have vanished. She becomes concerned later when she sees a picture of the notorious Boy Next Door Arsonist killer who is the media's "darling" as the BND and on the FBI most wanted list with four dead due to his infernos. She thinks her charter Rocky is BND so Lauren uses the federal hotline to report her belief. FBI arson investigator Brad Hale comes to Vermillion to investigate because the agency takes any tip on the whereabouts of this arrogant serial arsonist-killer seriously. As the evidence mounts that Evan is the culprit and planning something nasty and big, Lauren and Brad team up to prevent another tragedy caused by this ruthless murderer while their attraction to one another remains simmering as stopping Evan remains the top objective.

What makes INFERNO a fascinating police procedural romantic suspense in spite of the overused serial killing arsonist villain is the isosceles "triangle" that forms between Lauren, Brad, and BND. Whereas Lauren and Brad are dedicated individuals who fall in love, BND is a lunatic who is obsessed with deadly infernos. Though everyone knows Evan is BND and that he is insane, he remains sly and elusive as he continues to evade his adversaries while torching anything and anyone who tries to douse his fire. Karen Harper provides a tense action-packed thriller.
