A Spark of Romance by Jamie K. Schmidt

A Spark or Romance

Romance, Friends to Lovers


3 Star Read


Fire Chief and former Army sergeant Kayleigh Baker is determined to save Mulberry’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She doesn’t want to disappoint the kids and the fireworks are a bittersweet memory of her mom’s last summer. As the town prepares for the summer parade and picnic, Kayleigh works to convince her former high school crush — now the straight-laced police chief — to help her cause.

Does he stack up?

Police Chief Liam MacAvoy doesn’t like the chaos the fireworks cause for his department and can’t hide his relief when they’re cancelled. But now he’s got the woman he’s been in love with for as long as he can remember asking for his help. How can he say no? What he’d really like is to show her that fireworks and town traditions are not the only things worth fighting for.

Can the boy next door and the town hero find the courage to finally seize their chance at love?

Thank you to TLC Boo Tours for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 


A Spark of Romance was a cute friends to lovers read.  It was a major slow burn.  There were several times while I was reading it when I wanted to shout at the two main characters to just talk to one another about their feelings.  

This situation did make for some decent banter, but even still I needed the story to move on a little more quickly then it did.  There were also some really cute scenes that put a smile on my face and the side characters were great! if you are looking for a cute fourth of July read, I recommend this one!
