Summary

Welcome to Paradise Valley, where the locals thrive on the rural landscape, the quirky Oregonian living, and the history of the lesbian commune that founded it.

Mixing small town attitudes with lesbian dating? Sounds like another day in Paradise.

City girl Mikaiya "Mik" Marcott returns to her hometown to help her ailing grandmother. But who does she see first when she's barely reached the city limits? Ariana Mura, the girl whose heart she broke 10 years ago.

Only Ari isn't a "girl" anymore. She's a grown woman who doesn't take crud from anyone. The lanky Ariana with a flower crown in her long hair is now the big and tough Ari, Paradise Valley's strongest EMT and all-around "native gal" the other townsfolk are prepared to defend.

Locking eyes with her serves a grim reminder to Mik that coming home isn't always a small-town parade. It reminds them both of the worst night of their lives.

In a small town like Paradise Valley, these two former lovebirds will never avoid one another. Do they make peace with their tumultuous past? Or do they acknowledge the embers of love that still simmer in their heartbroken shells?

Who will stoke the fires first?

Cute story

I liked this story. This was an easy listen. The narrator did a great job with Ari and Mik’s voices. There was this weird glitch in the beginning where there were long pauses-not sure if it was something wrong with the recording. It only happened a few times early in the book. Overall, I enjoyed the book.

Keep The Fires Burning

Mik goes back to her hometown after ten years to take care of her grandmother. The first person she runs into is her ex girlfriend who she left behind without a goodbye. The lesbian based town is not Paradise anymore. Drama, romance and tension. Great performance and story. Will listen to Series. Recommend.
