Publisher's Summary

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.

Best-selling author Diane Chamberlain's Fire and Rain is a love story filled with mystery and heart.

Critic Reviews

"A patchwork of flashbacks is smoothly incorporated into the narrative; and nearly every chapter finishes with the sort of emotional jolt that keeps the pages turning." ( Publishers Weekly)

Siri from my Iphone would be a warmer narrator

What didn’t you like about Karen White’s performance?

the stale reading kept throwing me off the story - too bad. All audible stories should have personality in the narration.

Worst book ever

I wish I could get my credit back on this one. Tried more than once to listen to audio book but couldn't take more than 5 minutes before shutting off. Absolutely the WORST book I've ever purchased

Dated

Diane Chamberlain is a great writer, but Fire and Rain, one of her first books, is too dated to be enjoyable.

Another hit

Another great book by Diane Chamberlain. Once again, I thought I had the ending figured out, but Diane Chamberlain throws in twists and turns and leads me to think it'll end one way, but then it ends up quite differently. I enjoyed this book, enjoyed the characters, and the narrator did a great job telling this story. I'm a huge fan!

Not sure

I loved the three previous books i read from Chamberlain. I love how she writes. the plot of the stories, how the characters intertwine in the story and everything in the end makes sense and fits in a real world But this one I rated it low. First, don’t like science fiction. Second the long-suffering tone of the voice of K. White,

Really good book

I really enjoy this lovely book which is also very sad.
I would highly recommend this book as Diana never disappoints with the quality of her books.
