I have loved this series and watching how the relationship unfolds between Patty Mack and Mike. I really enjoy her character, she's very unique and interesting, and it has been fun getting to know her, so I'm definitely hoping you have more planned for her and Mike. I also love how you wrote her father, Henry. We were allowed to see a man who was flawed and imperfect and whose own inner demons tortured him at times. I adore such characters, they always make me want to take them apart to see what makes them tick.

I SO HOPE you have more on "Patty Mack and the Specialist" for us! I love her character! and am so enjoying the unfolding of the "butterfly wings" of their budding relationship. Another Wonderful Read!

I thoroughly enjoyed all the backstories and look forward to reading more. Drat! All good things must come to an end, but at least the characters can live to 'kiss' another day in a future story ;-).

Enjoyed it, thanks!

What a wonderful way to bow out of firefighting. Henry got his groove back and chose to walk away. Priceless! But the last part of your author's note is a bit distressing. I love these outtakes and now you say they could be coming to an end. It is always sad to see a great story find it's way to the finish. Maybe you could bribe your muse to do a few more glimpses for us?... :)

Love this! The care behind the scenes by phoning the ones who could help fits perfectly with my personal vision of how our boys would look out for one another. What a selfless act!

So, I finally got a chance to treat myself and sit a spell and read this chapter. And it was just that - a treat to read. Thank you for that. I think "Dickie" Hammer is my new favorite. Nice to get his back story.

Another great chapter, loved it!

*sigh* I finally had time to read this latest chapter and it was so worth the wait. Like a piece of gourmet chocolate, your stories are a treat to be savored!

What a wonderful, creative story, with Tommy and Henry. Your characterization is really exceptional. I've never seen such and imaginative use of 'fringe' characters. Great story.

This chapter left me very still, absorbing all of the emotion: the grief, the pain, the loss, and the quiet acts of love and compassion for each other that make the Station 51 crew so tightly united as a real team.

Wow. This is a stunning chapter, heartbreaking and visceral.
Patty crying for her mother and then her father, and the contrast between the 'TV show husband/father FF rescuing his family' and the reality anchored this in painful angst for me

Another good chapter. Loved the word play at O'Malley's. Thanks for sharing.

When Henry first showed up in "The Call of the Day", I thought he was a clownish character. This installment shows me that, in reality, he's a tragic figure. Which adds a new dimension to Patty Mack. She's, obviously, an important element in Mike's life.
The appearance of Dick Hammer adds another link from the past to the first season of the show.
I'm loving every part of this story line. My next question is, will there be a sequel to "The Call"? I, for one, would like to see some of the future of Mike and Patty. Am I alone in that desire? I hope not.
Are you ready for it? Here it comes: You keep writing and I'll keep reading and reviewing. (I'm trying to keep that a little different every time.)

Sitting here blinking as I continue to digest a banquet of descriptive writing with such specificity, such detail that I truly felt that I was inside with them. And, oh my, you almost make me like Chief McConnike. My heart aches for that entire family.
