In less than two weeks, summer will officially be here. I’ve compiled my summer reading list and the “hottest” choice at the top of my night table stack is a light mystery called Fire Engine Dead. It’s part of the publisher’s “Museum Mystery” series. The synopsis on the back of the book is enticing: “Nell Pratt, president of the Pennsylvania Antiquarian Society in Philadelphia, has to spark her intuition to find an arsonist/murderer whose identity is veiled in smoke. Valuable pieces in storage from the Fireman’s Museum go up in flames and a guard is killed in the blaze.”

Now here’s your challenge: How many fire-themed novels can you come up with that feature “Fire,” “Flame,” or “Smoke” in the title? Click on the “comments” link below to respond. I just might add your titles to my list.
