Hard-edged fireman Dean Mulligan has never been a big fan of Christmas. Twinkly lights and sparkly tinsel can’t brighten the memories of too many years spent in ramshackle foster homes. Although he’s established himself as one of the top firefighters at San Gabriel Station 1, he doesn’t think he’s good enough for someone like gorgeous Lizzie.
Lizzie Breen is used to fighting—from her alpha male brothers, who try to smother her in the name of safety, to the life-threatening childhood illness she overcame. She knows what she and Mulligan feel for each other is a lot more than a fling, but she can’t get him to see that. The only gift Lizzie wants to give him this season is her love, but he’s not willing to accept it.
When Mulligan is trapped in the burning wreckage of a holiday store, a Christmas angel arrives to open his eyes. But is it too late? This Christmas, it’ll take an angel, a determined woman in love, and the entire Bachelor Firemen crew to make him believe … it is indeed a wonderful life.
I have to state I got this book from Edelweiss for the purpose of a review.
Now for my review, I am saddened to say this is the final installment of the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel series. I am hopeful we’ll see more of the Firemen at a later date. IT’S A WONDERFUL FIREMAN is a quick fun read, all of us remember It’s a Wonderful Life, and this story is a play on that one. It’s different, it’s well written, and at moments very touching. We get a visit from all the firemen and see a few new people who will be in the new series from Jennifer Bernard in 2015. If you’ve read Fred’s book, THE NIGHT BELONGS TO FIREMAN, then you remember his sister, she’s the heroine of IT’S A WONDERFUL FIREMAN. I honestly can’t say enough about this whole series or this story. It’s an easy read, and perfect for this time of year. I can see myself rereading this one every year during the holidays. The characters are realistic and fun, the setting is believable and the storyline is truly easy to follow and believe. There are moments when I got teary-eyed but mostly I smiled while reading this one. If you love the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel you’ll want this one added to your reading pile. If you are new to the series this would in fact be a great story to start with. I highly recommend it!
