Trouble comes to Mosely, Montana, from the outside world. When the residents of Mosely are left on their own, they can make things work. Sure, there’s always been a militia operating up in the hills, but they were small-scale—just survivalists doing their thing—until organizers came in from out of state. Now Jericho Crewe and the rest of the sheriff’s department are facing down a heavily armed band of fanatics, and the feds are busy elsewhere.
The odds are hopeless, but Jericho swore an oath to serve and protect the citizens of Mosely. He won’t walk away from that, even if Wade Granger’s begging him to run away somewhere and finally be together the way they always should have been.
But this time, it’s Jericho who refuses to leave Mosely, even if staying kills him.
Home Fires by Kate Sherwood is the fourth book in her must read Common Law Series. This far into the series I don’t think I need to recap..Same characters in this book that we have loved throughout the first three. This story is once again told from Jay’s POV as he continues to be an employee of Mosely Sheriff department yet falling back in love with his teenage love and criminal mastermind, Wade.
This. Book. I have so much to say about this book, I know I will forget something. So let me start out by saying – this book will keep you enthralled from cover to cover as passion runs high between Jericho and Wade…
“If she wants to fire me, she can. But I’ve already told her— or at least I started to— if it comes down to choosing between you and my job, I choose you.”“Yeah?” Wade’s smile was a little softer this time, a little more real. ‘Damn, Junior, you can be a real sweet-talker when you try to be.'”
…and Mosely Montana comes under attack! This time though Wade is not involved but rather one who is working with the townspeople and Sheriff to save Mosely – “I never thought I’d say this, Jay , but not every criminal activity in Mosely is connected to Wade Granger. Ninety-five percent of it, yeah. But I think this may have been something from that other five percent.”
Kate Sherwood has written a series that keeps you on your toes. You just never quite know what Wade will do and this story is no different. Matching these two up as lovers was genius on her part as the conflict between right and wrong is something we can all relate to; but, what do you do when you are on one side of the law and the person you live for is on the other?
“Is there some part of you being a cop and me being a robber that you don’t understand, Jay? Of course I didn’t mention that I’d been gunrunning for a seditious militia.”
Sometimes there isn’t a clear answer and you just have to follow your heart, which is exactly what Jay does…
“In the future, if Wade was going to be in danger, then Jericho would be right beside him. Keeping him safe, hopefully, but at least doing something, being there for whatever happened, good or bad.”
When outside gunrunners and militia threaten to tear apart everything Wade and Jericho just got back, Wade begs Jay to leave…to get in his truck, and drive away with him…
“Fuck what’s right. Fuck every goddamn thing that isn’t you and me.
Jay can’t turn off his conscious-he can’t just walk away from Kayla and everyone he knows, simply because he is afraid. He wasn’t raised that way..he is a Crew Afterall and Crew’s don’t cower to nobody! Wade, Jay, and the town of Mosely stand up and fight – they refuse to hide.
Who will make it out the other side of the battle? Will Jericho and Wade get their HEA or will it all be blown to hell by some crazy gunrunning militia?
“I fucking love you. You know that, don’t you?” Thankfully, Jericho no longer felt the need to vomit whenever he nodded. “I suspected; I am a detective. But it’s nice to hear it.”
5 Stars and a High Recommendation for this book and the entire series! A must read!!
