She's bringing his son home

A missing little boy triggers San Diego K-9 officer Shannon Clemens and her canine search-and-rescue partner into instant action. For the rookie cop haunted by a childhood tragedy, bringing Sawyer Evans's son safely home is more than a job. It's a mission she can't fail… But forging a friendship with the father is a tactical error that could compromise her first solo assignment. Yet the deepening bond between them is almost impossible to resist…

My heartstrings were in constant turmoil with this captivating return to Kate James’ San Diego K-9 Unit series! It had my full attention from the first page, and as secrets were told and plots were unraveled, I took the journey of ups and downs right along with them. A really intriguing plot will keep you guessing as this cast of characters weave their spell. It was great to see the crowd from the previous books and get some exciting updates on them. I’m crossing my fingers that there are more books on the way for us … after all, Quinn seems like quite a mystery awaiting unravel! 🙂

Awakening to find your child missing is every parents nightmare!  Sawyer Evans jumps into action searching everywhere to find him, but his efforts are fruitless. He just seems to have vanished!

Rookie K-9 officer Shannon Clemens is called out with her partner Darwin to look for the missing boy. Her first solo assignment might be the end of her if she can’t get her emotions under control. This case brings back so many memories of a tragedy from her past and she’s finding it hard to focus. Speaking with Sawyer seems to comfort her … as well as him. An unexpected connection forges in the wake of despair and helps keep an even keel as things spiral out of control.

    Lynn, thank you for the wonderful review of Home to Stay. I am so glad you enjoyed the story.

    Yes, I have Quinn in mind as the hero for book five in the series. Do you have an idea who the heroine might be? 🙂

      My pleasure Kate!

      Hmmmm … possibilities for Quinn .. I’m drawing a blank on available females LOL … maybe Sawyer’s sis Meghan?

      • Kate James says

        Ha! I didn’t think of Meghan when I was writing the story, but now I am! How about the new hot-shot lawyer in the DA’s office for Quinn? I might have enough characters right now for two more books in the series! 😉

        • LynnB888 says

          OMG, I didn’t even think of her … but YES … that’s going to be awesome!! Two strong, confident personalities clashing … fun!!! 😀
