Fire and Rain (Mini Review)


How did I get it?:
I borrowed it from Beth!


Into the drought-weary California town of Valle Rosa comes a stranger who promises he can make it rain. All he asks for is a place to stay and complete privacy. But he is too charismatic to maintain a low profile . . . and the adobe cottage he’s given to live in is owned by an investigative TV reporter struggling to revive her career. Fire and Rain is a love story filled with mystery and heart.


I have read several of Diane Chamberlain’s books in the past, I’m trying to make my way through some of her earlier books because I’ve enjoyed her writing. This book is a perfect example of how much a writer can develop as their career progresses. I thought Fire and Rain was a good read, but it certainly took me a while to get into it.

Fire and Rain follows several characters Jeff, Mia, Carmen and Chris. As with many Diane Chamberlain books, these characters are complex. They all have their separate issues and it takes a while for their problems to unfold. I did find the whole rain plot a little far-fetched, but it wasn’t too far-fetched that it became a book that you constantly rolled your eyes at. I liked the mysterious elements, but as I’ve mentioned Diane’s writing has come on so much since this book, which is 20 years old!

Whilst this isn’t my favourite read from Diane Chamberlain, I still think Fire and Rain is an imaginative, intriguing read!

Would I recommend it?:
Yes!- if you’re into women’s fiction!

Fire and Rain is a good read for women’s fiction fans if it’s a little slow to start!
