Relief worker Eames has spent the last 10 years traveling around the world helping people, but secretly he’s running away from taking over the family business.
College student Avery is no stranger to running away – she stays in college to avoid dealing with her overbearing parents still dealing with a family tragedy.
Each of them has their own reasons for coming back home, but when a massive snowstorm throws the two of them together on the cold and desolate roads of New Hampshire, they’ll have to stick together if they want to stay alive, and deal with the heat that’s growing between them.

Light My Fire is a fun coming of age story about two people on their way home after years of absence to make peace with their families and their expectations. Avery and Eames meet in a blizzard under precarious circumstances. It’s sweet, sexy (but not too sexy), and thought-provoking. Eames and Avery learn to stand up to their parents’ expectations, learn to be themselves. The inn keepers are a sweet, knowledgeable elderly couple who see the writing on the wall way before Eames or Avery but know how to keep just enough distance to let them light each other’s fire.
I read an early, early version of this book and really liked it. I’m assuming that the published version will be even better. This is my honest and voluntary review.
