Former ATF agent Susannah Tait is out to prove that pyrotechnics genius, Quinn Baldwin, whose special events company has been pegged to produce the festivities for the next presidential inauguration is responsible for a million-dollar fireworks catastrophe during a Mardi Gras ball. With her faithful black Lab, Monty, a retired explosives task force animal, Susannah moves to the charming backwater city of Mobile, Alabama, to uncover the truth.
On the pretext of researching for a doctoral thesis, Susannah suffers herself to be dragged to church, ministry projects, and gargantuan southern dinnersall in the name of thorough investigation. But this world traveled military brat with a string of letters behind her name finds herself wholly unprepared to navigate the cultural quagmires of the Deep South. Everyone she interviews, from local ATF agents to Azalea Trail Maids, seems to speak a foreign language.
Captivated by the unexpected warmth and joy of her new circle of friends, Susannah struggles to keep from falling for a subject who refuses to be anything but a man of integrity, compassion, and lethal Southern charm. Fireworks offers a glimpse into the heart of the South and a cynical young woman's first encounter with Christ like love.
