Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back to the big time and restore her self-respect.
Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Co. 6, needs a low-key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. Especially when in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.
Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…

One-Sentence Summary: Destiny throws a firefighter and an actress together again
Review: It seems like only a few moons ago that I first discovered Kate Meader through her Hot In The Kitchen series and here we are wrapping up her third series already!
In Sparking This Fire we get to find out the broody Wyatt’s story and the secret he has been hiding from the rest of his family, their niece! Then there’s the small matter of another secret – his past with a certain Hollywood actress Molly Cade.
Needless to say when Wyatt and Molly meet again and are forced to work together on the set of her latest film, sparks fly again and there is a lot of sneaking around whilst they are both forced to confront how they fit in each others’s worlds.
Meanwhile the whole of the Dempsey gang are busy creating a lot of noise and drama as you would expect, especially over the discovery that Logan had a daughter. Having them all learn to build a relationship with this new arrival certainly added another layer to the story to balance out the Wyatt/Molly romance.
I’m really sad to be leaving the Dempsey family. Meader has an irresistible way of immersing you in a world and exploring human emotions that leaves you wanting more.
Kate, I know you have a hockey series on the way but if you ever feel the need the give Dick Wolf a run for his money and expand this Chicago series to explore the world of PD and Med then I’m definitely game!
