He stared at the flames with grim satisfaction. The house was burning.What is it all about? Homicide detective Mia Mitchell is just returning to active duty after being wounded. And she's still upset that she was unable to protect her partner, Abe Reagan (hero from I'm Watching You), on that fateful day. Her first day back on the job she finds herself temporarily partnered with Lieutenant Reed Solliday of the Chicago Fire Department. While Abe heals, the pair must hunt down a serial arsonist and it becomes clear that Mia has some healing of her own to deal with. But as the body count rises, the connection between Mia and Reed grows stronger. And as he gets closer to home, they both realize that they will have to fight for what they really want.
Random thoughts: As with Karen's other books, Count to Ten grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go until I finished the book. I find the blend of danger, excitement, and romance in her books just right! I can't wait to get started on the next one, Die For Me.
