THE ELEVENTH HOUR
Photographer Laine Sheehan's dream is to move from the lifestyle section into hard news. She convinces her editor to let her prove herself by covering a wildfire in California. Once there, she encounters her ex-boyfriend, firefighter Steve Kimball, and he wants to rekindle their relationship. Since it was his job and not a lack of feeling that split them up, Laine's reluctant. She thinks nothing's changed. But Steve's not a man to take no for an answer. Certain to strike a chord with readers, Wendy Etherington's The Eleventh Hour (4) sets an interesting, believable love story against a dramatic backdropa winning combination.
