ANNABELLE HART thought owning the family ranch would be everything she ever dreamed of and more. The Montana wilderness has always flowed like blood through her veins, but she can’t understand why her heart feels so empty inside.
Three years after leaving Montana to become a wild land firefighter, COLTON BROOKS still dreams about the girl he left behind at Hart Ranch. He prays for her happiness, believing she deserves someone better than him, but doubts he will ever love again.

In My Opinion…
I’m not sure what it was, perhaps the prologue and introduction to Annabelle (Belle) Hart, but something immediately pulled me into this story. And while this is a second in a series, I hadn’t read book one, so this was my first foray to the Hart ranch. (I would, however, suggest starting with that first book as sometimes I felt like I same missing some important pieces which were eventually explained. I have a feeling they were explained more thoroughly in Escaping Reality, though).
Another possibility of my quick investment is Chasing Embers could have been the friends to more, second chance tropes—two of my favorites. And when Colton made his appearance, I couldn’t read fast enough.
This story is a little predictable but thoroughly enjoyable. Belle is determined, stubborn, and beautiful. She loves the Montana land, her horses, and family. Colton’s dream is to follow in his father’s footsteps fighting wildfires. It’s a career that causes him to give up his other dream.
Chasing Embers is a story of strength of family, holding on to love, and fighting for the important things in life.
That first book I mentioned I haven’t read yet has now made its way to my TBR and I’ll be watching for the next installment from Rachel Skatvold.

Guest Post from Rachel
Chasing Embers is a sequel I have been excited to write since the release of Escaping Reality over two years ago. To be honest, while writing book one, I thought it would just be a standalone story and not part of a series. However, Logan’s strong-willed little sister, Belle, was determined to have her own story and I’m thrilled that she is finally getting one!
One of the theme verses from Chasing Embers is Ephesians 3:20, which says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” In the story, the characters go through some trials that seem impossible to overcome. In order to keep their loved ones and the ranch safe, the Hart family must cling tightly to their faith and trust that God always keeps his promises. The events of the story also serve as a reminder that God can do mighty things through us if we allow him to.
Chasing Embers is a heartwarming tale of lost love, second chances and choosing to love even when it is difficult. Be prepared to laugh, cry and rejoice with Belle and Colton as you read their love story. To find out more about Chasing Embers by Rachel Skatvold, read the summary above.

Sounds like a great book.
This sounds interesting! It’s always good to know ahead of time when you should definitely read the first book(s) in a series.
