After All

Author: Deborah Raney
Publisher: Howard Books
May 2012
ISBN:  978-1416599951
Genre: Contemporary romance

Eighteen months after the tragic Grove Street Fire took the life of her husband, David, and four other heroic firefighters, Susan Marlowe thinks she’s finally beginning to heal.

But then she discovers that David carried a secret to his grave.

A secret that changes everything she thought their marriage had been.
For the sake of their sons, can Susan forgive the unforgivable?

Andrea Morley lost her closest friend in the fire. But she has no right to mourn him. Instead, she must forever grieve in silence—because her dearest friend was someone else’s husband. Peter Brennan carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. As Hanover Falls’ fire chief, he was responsible for the brave firefighters who lost their lives that awful November night.

Can he ever shake the feeling that he should have somehow prevented the tragedy?

As he tries to rebuild the team at Clemens County’s Station 2, it seems he might find comfort in the arms of the woman he least expected.

AFTER ALL is the third and final book in the Hanover Falls series. I would say it stands alone, but Almost Forever and Forever After probably should be read first so you know the events of the fire, and you know about the man training fire dogs. 

This book is very well written. It is a bit distant, causing some skimming, but all in all a great book. There is a very unexpected twist to  this story that I never expected – which provided a stellar ending to this book – and the series. Don’t miss any of the books in Hanover Falls. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $14.99. 368 pages.
