“No secret stays hidden forever.”

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery he’d abandoned years before. He never expected a young librarian could hold the key to the search, nor could he have expected the danger she would attract. Now he and Beatrice De Novo will follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation they never could have predicted.

A Hidden Fire is a paranormal mystery/romance for adult readers. It is the first book in the Elemental Mysteries Series.

I am really on the fence with how I feel about this book which is why I ended up giving it 3 gems. The book plot is solid and the characters are interesting and have depth. However, things just seemed to drag along slowly. Beyond that I have to admit that sometimes the characters were so childish you expected to see them passing notes. Gio was a curious character sometimes I liked him and sometimes I just wanted to slap him. Lorenzo would have been fun had he been the REAL Lorenzo De Medici,but nope of course he couldn’t be that epic historical person.

Sadly I can’t really write a whole lot more about this book because in the end I just felt very Meh about it. I didn’t hate it, I didn’t love it. The read was okay but nothing that will probably stick with me. The only thing I will probably remember for a while is that fact that Gio had the power of fire and electricity, many of the Vampires in this story are elemental and Fire of course is the most dangerous for their kind. So that one part was very interesting. If the story had a little faster pace maybe it would be more then meh for me. I might try to tead the next one in the series, but we will see.
