Sometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.
Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.
The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.

Love and caring
Sara Foster is a nurse who works at the Burn Unit in a hospital in Spokane. She has a very soft and giving heart and providing relief and comfort to her patients is her calling. They have a new admission, he was burned in a meth cooking explosion. He is Deputy Sheriff Milo Phillips. We met Milo in the The Copper Smith Farmhouse.
Milo is in extreme pain, compounded by guilt that Jess, his boss, was also injured. Sara is immediately attracted to him, and that never happens to her. Sara gives him peace and instills confidence that this will eventually be over, and he will have his life back. She finds herself pulled to him more and more, even spending her time off sneaking in at night to sit with him. Her nurse administrator and a Dr. both comment to her that it’s against so many rules. Milo doesn’t want her to break rules, but she has become his lifeline and a reason to work harder at getting better.
This is a beautiful love story as all the Jameson Series books are. It’s wonderful to catch up with all our favorite characters, and of course add new ones. This can be read as a stand-alone, but don’t deprive yourself of the pleasure of reading the whole series.
I would happily read hundreds of Jamison Valley love stories! The Candle Palace is another fabulous trip to my favorite fictional town of Prescott, Montana. This is the story of Milo Phillips who We first met in The Coppersmith Farmhouse and fell in love with as all the series progressed. His story starts after he suffers serious burns received in a meth lab explosion. While hospitalized in the burn unit, Milo meets and falls in love with the sweet nurse, Sara. I’m so happy that Devney Perry missed Prescott and all the residents and let us all come along for another visit!
I need to give The Candle Palace twenty thousand stars! I loved this book so much!
Milo was injured in the house explosion with Jess, y’all remember that right? So, now he’s stuck on the burn unit trying to heal and get back to work but what he never expected to feel was grateful for the accident. He’s grateful because it lead him to Sara.
Sara is Milo’s nurse, and she quickly realizes that she can’t be that anymore. Not because she doesn’t like him but because she does...too much.
Milo....GAH! He is so freaking perfect! Maybe it’s the nurse in me but I wanted to be the one to take care of him. He was seriously unflawed. Not one thing about him would I change. And Sara, “plain old” Sara. Y’all. Omg she is so perfect for Milo!!! These two are for reals the most amazing couple yet! Or of them all because it’s over now isn’t it?! *bawls crying*
We all met Milo & got a glimpse of Sara in the Sheriff’s love story, but I NEVER KNEW MILO WAS THIS SWOON-WORTHY!
WHY DIDN’T I KNOW THIS DEVNEY?!?!
Their connection was so beautiful, I loved how I could feel the feelings growing between them. Seriously y’all, SWOON CITY!!!
