Amy Knupp is an American USA Today bestselling author of romance and contemporary fiction series North Brothers, Henry Brothers, and Hale Street, Island Fire. Amy has a deep affection for language, grammar, and narratives that are rich, immersive, and feature intricately developed characters. Residing in Wisconsin alongside her husband, she is a proud parent to two children the caretaker of four cats, and a box turtle. Her educational background includes graduating from the University of Kansas with degrees in both French and journalism. During her leisure moments, she enjoys traveling, meditating on cat disagreements, avidly following college basketball, and playfully teasing her family by offering grammar corrections.

True North is the first novel in the North Brothers series by Amy Knupp, first published in 2019. A self-professed loner, Cole North has always stood apart from the crowd. Despite possessing an exceptionally high IQ, his interpersonal skills and ability to navigate relationships have never been his strong suit. Many years ago, he deliberately defied expectations, rejecting his family’s business in favor of a career in construction. His dedication to his job is unwavering, driven partly by his concealed affection for his boss, Sierra. Although he acknowledges that they could never be a suitable match on a personal level, he is determined to be the perfect professional support she needs.

Sierra Lowell, a remodeling expert, boasts creativity, diligence, and a penchant for thinking outside the box in her profession. However, there is one boundary she has steadfastly upheld: she refuses to let romantic entanglements or emotions complicate her life, particularly in a male-dominated field. Intelligent and attractive Cole is undoubtedly her most trusted ally, yet the lines become blurred when Sierra encounters challenges like a wedding date crisis and an extraordinary television opportunity.
In a spontaneous decision, Cole becomes her go-to person for both predicaments. However, their pretend date takes an unexpected turn when a family emergency arises. With Sierra by his side, Cole realizes that the line between solitude and loneliness is finer than he had thought, and he might be ready for less of both. Can he find a way to transition from being Sierra’s right-hand man to becoming the right man for her?

The storytelling in this narrative is truly outstanding, delving into dramatic childhood issues and delivering heartwarming banter between relatable and endearing characters. Stephanie Nemeth Parker’s narration adds a delightful layer to the experience.
Playing with Fire is the first novel in Texas Firefighters or the Island Fire series by Amy Knupp. Playing with Fire” serves as the inaugural installment in the Island Fire series, offering readers a compelling journey into the recovery process for Derek Severson, a former Dallas firefighter. This book makes for a delightful summer reading escapade.

Following a harrowing five-alarm fire that resulted in personal loss and left Derek overwhelmed by grief, he made a life-altering decision. He departed from the Dallas Fire Department (DFD) and sought solace on San Amaro Island, Texas, where he assumed responsibility for his aging uncle’s beachside bar. In doing so, he effectively severed all ties to his former life in Dallas.

Unexpectedly, Derek’s childhood friend, Macey Locke, reenters the scene, having recently returned from a two-year stint in Thailand. She promptly employs her business acumen to revamp the Shell Shack, despite Derek’s initial reluctance and the belief that her presence may disrupt his self-imposed wallowing in sorrow.

“Playing with Fire” tells a story of rekindling life and successfully navigating the path beyond grief. While the subject matter carries emotional weight, the book maintains a light-hearted tone, making it an ideal choice for a summer read set against a picturesque island populated by a diverse cast of engaging characters. The evolution of the characters’ relationships unfolds gradually, featuring realistic obstacles that mirror the complexities of real-life connections. Derek and Macey contribute to each other’s personal growth and recovery.
“Heat of the Night” is the second novel installment in the Island Fire book series by Amy Knupp. Evan Drake’s upbringing may have been fraught with challenges. Still, he has successfully surmounted them to craft a life he holds dear—a fulfilling career as a firefighter, a circle of friends, and no shortage of attention from the opposite sex, all within the idyllic confines of a tropical island. He believes he couldn’t ask for more until Selena enters his world.

Selena Jarboe, born into a life of privilege and abundance thanks to her old-money background, seemingly lacks nothing—except for the one thing she yearns for most: a stable, secure family. Having adhered to society’s conventions all her life, she decides to cast them aside, forsake her East Coast mansion, and embark on a new life adventure that leads her to San Amaro Island and a captivating stranger named Evan. Their no-strings-attached night together turns unexpectedly when Selena discovers it carries significant consequences.

With an uncertain future looming, Selena holds onto one certainty: Evan is the last person capable of offering her any stability. Well-versed in the art of fighting for what he desires, Evan faces a formidable challenge in his quest to win Selena over permanently.
Both Selena and Evan carry the weight of their pasts, marked by the circumstances of their upbringing and the voids in their lives. However, they share an undeniable attraction that initially sparks their one-night encounter, ultimately leading to a life-changing revelation nine months later. Selena’s apprehensions revolve around the inherent risks of Evan’s profession as a firefighter, a high-stakes job where lives are put on the line to safeguard others. She fears the possibility of losing a loved one and is unwilling to subject herself to such potential heartache again.

Evan’s upbringing was marked by the absence of a father figure, leaving his mother, Susan, to raise him and his twin sibling alone. Their hardships included living in the back of an old station wagon due to eviction from their residences. However, these challenges cultivated resilience and honed his skills, making him the capable individual he is today. He remains steadfast in his commitment to his chosen profession, understanding that altering it would mean changing the very essence of who he has become.

Selena’s journey led her away from Boston, where she experienced conflicts with her mother. Her departure coincided with her brother’s deployment overseas, prompting her to leave her old life behind. Driving to San Amaro Island in South Texas, she took refuge in her father’s bequeathed home, determined to stand on her own feet after her mother closed their shared bank account, leaving Selena with a mere $423.07.

Upon arriving on the island, her path intersected with Evan’s at the Shell Shack, and their fateful night together set in motion a profound change that would shape their futures.

This series introduces relatable characters and explores typical challenges without overdramatizing them. It offers a perfect backdrop for a pleasant summer read, with the picturesque island setting and a captivating ensemble of characters.
