Again Gail Martin is a very dear friend, but that doesn't mean I can't read, enjoy and review her books with sincerity. :-)Again this isn't the first of her books I've read either. Gail and I were unpublished together and I relish seeing how much she had accomplished and the good stories she has given her MANY readers.The impetus that drives this story is the two main characters: Devon and Ashley. Devon is the firefighter of the title and Ashley is his neighbor. Both characters are immediately l [...]
It was a pleasure to read this novella by Mrs. Martin. I enjoyed her sweet, easy-to-read style of writing. I was not quite sure how I would feel about this story. The main character, Devon, is divorced and I always hope there will be reconciliation but it wasn't to be. Still, Devon was a likable guy and won me over. The other characters in the book were just as likable. I look forward to reading more of Gail Gaymer Martin's books.
The single mom storyline has been done, a lot. In "The Firefighter's New Family" (January 2014) we get a single mom and a single dad, which means twice the kids running through the story. But Gail Gaymer Martin took a familiar plot and made it fresh and fun. I read all of Gail's books and this one is not only one of my favorite GGM books but it's one of my favorite Love Inspired titles. The characters take this book from a typical to top book. They're the kind that you're thinking about long aft [...]
It’s funny sometimes the way God works. Two neighbors who were meant to be together are finally brought together by a terrible storm. We may never have such a dramatic experience like this in our own lives, but it is amazing how God brings us through the storms in life and if we allow ourselves, we come out on the other end very blessed. That is what I took away from The Firefighter’s New Family. While I really enjoyed the story, as I always do, I enjoyed the comforting message that Gail has [...]
I have read a lot of books lately that are really good and that I feel I can wholeheartedly recommend. The Firefighter’s New Family is definitely one of those books. It is the second in a series, but stands alone as well. It is a contemporary romance from the Love Inspired line and is packed with emotion.Ashley Kern and Devon Murphy are brought together when Ashley is injured. Devon comes to her aid and they begin a friendship that grows into more. Devon and Ashley are both parents to young ch [...]
Firefighters, actually men in uniform, are still the most visible of any hero. Firefighters overparticular are available for rescue from any type of catastrophe from a pet in the tree to tornado clean-up. This is the second book in a series, Sisters, but like most Love Inspired books from Harlequin, each book stands alone, reading the whole series does help the reader to learn to know the characters in a deeper fashion, and for me adds to the experience. On its own, though it is still a delightf [...]
SistersBook 2This was my favorite book of the entire series! Deven was like *sigh* and he was the hero any woman would love! How can you not love a man who saves a little boy, then his Mama. He immediately starts taking care of them like they were old friends and their romance grows throughout the book. Gail Gaymer Martin has an excellent way of writing romance. I respect that she doesn't let all this tension take place until the very end where they get together. I like that a romantic relations [...]

It is a struggle.Then their is Kaylee, Devon' daughter, product of his ex-wife and she is bipolar. Devon had no idea of her condition when he married her. My daughte [...]
Another hit by Gail Gaymer Martin. #2 In her Sister's series. 'A Firefighter's New Family, focuses on Neely's sister, Ashley Kern, a young war widow and single mom, with an adorable 3 yr old, Joey. Ashley meets firefighter, and fellow single Dad Devon Murphy when she is injured. There is an instant attraction. But Ashley is afraid to give her heart to another man with a dangerous career.I LOVED Ashley and Devon. Devon was just a sweetie. Little Joey and Kaylee (Devon's daughter) were adorable. I [...]
Ashley Kern's day goes from bad to worse when a tornado hits and a tree falls on her. Trapped under the tree with three year old joey inside the house spells trouble. However, Ashley is rescued by Lieutenant Devon Murphy, firefighter. Not only does he rescue Ashley but takes care of Joey until her sister arrives. Both Ashley and Devon try to resist the attraction they feel. Ashley because of her fear of losing another husband and her fear of his profession. Devon because he is a single part time [...]
I loved Ashley and Devon's heartwarming and inspiring story. Gail Gaymer Martin does an excellent job blending many social issues into Ashley and Devon's story that they struggle with. Ashley whose husband died in the war has trouble dealing with Devon's high risk job as a firefighter. Devon is dealing with being divorced, custody issues and not being told his ex wife is mentally ill. I liked The Firefighter's New Family better than Her Valentine Hero, Ashley's sister Neeley's story because it w [...]
"Harlequin Reader ReviewGreat book!a very neat story. With a very surprising beginning. It is super neat to have firefighter as a neighbor. Great storyyou will enjoy it alot" From review posted by an Harlequin member, harlequin/storeitem
"In the second book in the Sisters series, strong characters demonstrate how we should not let fear prevent us from living the life God has planned. Martin is inventive with her offbeat comparison of a family to a puzzle (RT Book Reviews)". 4 stars
After reading Her Valentine Hero, first in this series, I could hardly wait to read the next one & finally it is here. This story shows how a couple can overcome many issues with past loves, current family and what they can accomplish together. A heartwarming story for all to read.
I enjoyed Ashley and Devon's story. Sometimes life doesn't go as planned and second chances are needed.
Ashley is trapped under a tree until fireman Devon find her. They both are raising a child on their own and have issues to resolve.
a very neat story. With a very surprising beginning. It is super neat to have firefighter as a neighbor. Great storyyou will enjoy it alot
