Description

Carlisle Cops: Book Four

Fisher Moreland has been cast out of his family because they can no longer deal with his issues. Fisher is bipolar and living day to day, trying to manage his condition, but he hasn't always had much control over his life and has self-medicated with whatever he could find.

JD Burnside has been cut off from his family because of a scandal back home. He moved to Carlisle, but brought his Southern charm and warmth along with him. When he sees Fisher on a park bench on a winter's night, he invites Fisher to join him and his friends for a late-night meal.

At first Fisher doesn't know what to make of JD, but he slowly comes out of his shell. And when Fisher's job is threatened because of a fire, JD's support and care is more than Fisher ever thought he could expect. But when people from Fisher's past turn up in town at the center of a resurgent drug epidemic, Fisher knows they could very well sabotage his budding relationship with JD.

Nice series, not my favorite narration

This is book 4 in the Carlisle Cops series and as such we meet another police officer, JD, new to the force from North Carolina. He was forced to leave home by his parents old fashioned sense of propriety (gay is apparently not proper) after being outed by the town’s mayor’s son. He likes his job and is adjusting to the weather. On a snowy night in December he finds a man sitting on a bench acting strangely, when he rules out intoxication, he befriends him and asks him to join him and some friends for dinner.

Fisher is the man on the bench and he has some peculiar traits after receiving a traumatic brain injury a few years ago that have left him with a condition like bi-polar disorder. While on his meds he’s mostly in control, but he’s subject to mood swings under times of emotional stress.

For some reason JD is immediately attracted to Fisher (though Fisher can’t see why) and the two begin a friendship that slowly develops into something more.

**

While I’m a big fan of Andrew Grey – there are some of his series that resonate more with me than others. This is one of the series that I only like, not love. Because it’s Andrew you know you’ll get quality writing and perfect editing and a solid story line filled with emotion and hot smexy times – and this is true here as well.

I didn’t care for the relationship between JD and Fisher as well as some of his other pairings because I didn’t quite see the instant attraction on JD’s part. Fisher doesn’t represent well until almost 70% through the book – his self-esteem is low, he has several stress induced episodes and he tends to be abrasive and defensive. So I was hard pressed to see the appeal.

Once the couple got together and began working through their stuff a bit, Fisher calmed down and began to be more appealing, but in the beginning I was wondering why JD even tried.

So… for fans of the series and the author, you’ll want to check this out to see where previous MCs are at and because you know the author always delivers a good story. If you’re new to the series or the author (really? He’s written like a million books – read them – they’re awesome!) then you might not start with this one. I’d recommend his Farm series or his paranormal series as those are really heartbreaking and excellent at the same time.

Audio

Randy Fuller does a satisfactory job narrating this series. I think that fans of the series are used to him as the narrator, so they know what they’re getting. He sort of fits the region, has kind of an older voice and he sounds a little “down home”, so I think he’s appropriate for the series. In this case, he was a bit more nasal sounding than usual and that caught my attention more than it should. I also didn’t really love the voice he chose for Fisher, it was a bit too high pitched for my tastes. Overall, this wasn’t my favorite from this narrator and I found it hard to get through.

Review on „Fire and Snow (Carlisle Cops Book 04)

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Fire and Snow gefallen?

The latest addition to the Carlisle PD is southern transplant JD, who is struggeling with his first winter season in central Pennsylvania. Red/Terry, Carter/Donald and the others take the young man into their group offering friendship and support on the job.They make it easier for JD building up a new life after his old relationship went terribly wrong and his homophobic mother had only accusations instead of understanding for him. But it wouldn't be a true Andrew Grey story, if he didn't give this sad situation a special twist.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

On a patrol night JD meets Fisher sitting alone on a bench in the Court House Square. Fisher's family and relationship story are tragic and sad, mirrowing JD's in many ways. After a car accident Fisher is suffering from brain injury and a bipolar condition both his family and ey- boyfriend couldn't cope with. The loneliness is more obvious to see in Fisher than in JD. Both men are drawn to each other and it is heartwarming to follwo them and their growing together. Somehow Fisher is terrorized by the latest drug thugs and JD 's protectiveness kicks into overdrive.

Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

I love the scene when little Alex (now 5 years old) decides that Uncle Jeffy needs a picture from him to cheer him up.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Randy Fuller has narrated another masterpiece with soft-spoken Fisher and his psychical disposition and mood swings. JD is as impressivly portrayed as a strong, level-headed police officer, a hurt and pushed away son and a gentle understanding lover to Fisher. What a fabulous addition to the already brilliant series. Please, Mr.Grey & Mr.Fuller, hurry up, I am impatiently waiting for more!
