Fire and Snow, the fourth Carlisle Cops story really touched close to home for me. You see Fisher had a mental illness, he's bi-polar, and he's bene struggling with it for some time. I know first hand that this particular disease doesn't just affect the person afflicted, but the entire family and everyone around them. the rollercoaster of emotions can be overwhelming to almost anyone. So when I developed Fisher, I tried to be realistic and genuine. JD has his own issues, but he's strong, independent, understanding and has a huge heart. The perfect man to love Fisher.
Fisher Moreland has been cast out of his family because they can no longer deal with his issues. Fisher is bipolar and living day to day, trying to manage his condition, but he hasn’t always had much control over his life and has self-medicated with whatever he could find.
JD Burnside has been cut off from his family because of a scandal back home. He moved to Carlisle but brought his Southern charm and warmth along with him. When he sees Fisher on a park bench on a winter’s night, he invites Fisher to join him and his friends for a late-night meal.
At first Fisher doesn’t know what to make of JD, but he slowly comes out of his shell. And when Fisher’s job is threatened because of a fire, JD’s support and care is more than Fisher ever thought he could expect. But when people from Fisher’s past turn up in town at the center of a resurgent drug epidemic, Fisher knows they could very well sabotage his budding relationship with JD.
