I received a copy of Retribution by Regina Smeltzer from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Lillian Hunter’s life is destroyed when she’s implicated in setting the fire which killed her husband and daughter. Seeking peace and restoration, she pulls the pieces of her shattered life together and accepts a position at a college in another state. Surrounded by a loving family that has adopted her as their own, Lillian struggles with new life, new love…and new danger. Fires are being set in which she is once again implicated. Doubting her own sanity, Lillian takes steps to ensure she isn’t setting the fires. But if it isn’t her, who is it? And why, after she’s moved halfway across the country, have they followed her? A day of reckoning is coming as Lillian seeks to exonerate herself and claim retribution for the destruction of her life. Will she discover the truth before her new life is consumed by the flames?
I had a little trouble getting into this book.  It seemed really dark and depressing.  As the story continued I realized why it started out like it did.  Lillian felt as if her life was over after losing her husband and daughter to a house fire.  It doesn't help that she blames herself along with everyone else in town.  She desperately needs to find herself again. Will moving south be the answer she needs?
