These books leave me wanting more but also crushed. The subject of them is so hard and tragic, but they are done well, and the characters are great!
Amethyst Hatcher’s youth was tragic, but she has rebuilt her life and is now just moving through life. She thinks she’s living, but she is really just still surviving. She needs the rush of extreme sports to make her feel alive and when they start to feel dull and not giving her what she needs she finds something else that will give her that rush. When tragedy hits their town and Amethyst, as a fire fighter, has to deal with the aftermath of the fires that are being set she begins to realize, with the help of her sisters and Zeb, that her life is not what she thought it was. The devastation of the fires that are being set in the their town really hits Amethyst hard and when she is put in the position of working with her brother in-law and his partner to find the person setting the fires and causing all of the destruction, she sees a different side of her job and of her life.
Zeb Tuck knows about Amethyst’s past and her history. He finds her attractive but he’s afraid to ruin his partnership with Judah since he is also Amethyst’s brother in-law. He has his own rough history and the fires that are being set bring a lot of his past to the surface again. His whole family was taken from him at an early age and he has to rebuild his own life.
I really like these stories. Even with the hard topic of the plot and the tragedy that these characters go through, they are written so well, and the characters are great. I have liked all of the books so far and I think this one may be my favorite so far, because I love Amethyst and her strength. She puts on a great front for being tough and strong, but deep down she is just as vulnerable as her sisters were and now it’s their turn to show her that she can let the past be and live her life to the fullest and be happy. The characters are entertaining, strong, and able to move on in life with the right person beside them and helping them to find their true North in life. If you like stories with strong, beautiful women, the Broken Gem books are a great read. I give this story a 4-star review and would highly recommend them.
