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…
Other Books in the Series
Who would expect to wake up early in the morning during a camping trip to find that his or her son has vanished? Certainly not Sawyer Evans. The all-encompassing grief he feels as he frantically searches for Dylan conveys to the reader how much he cares for his son, and when it’s discovered that Dylan was kidnapped, suspicion immediately falls on felons Sawyer had put away years earlier as a District Attorney. It’s a double tragedy for Sawyer, since he lost his wife, Jeannette, three years earlier after she disappeared without a trace, and the question arises: Could there be a connection?
Rookie cop, Shannon Clemons, is determined to find Dylan, even while dealing with her own haunting experience concerning a lost child, but what she doesn’t expect is her feelings for Sawyer. Is it simply because she understands his grief, or is it something more? Several scenarios seem possible concerning the plights of Dylan and Jeannette, and but Shannon keeps striving for the truth.
Kate James is a master of intrigue, and Home to Stay will keep you on the edge of your seat as she brings to light the agony of kidnappings and steps that can be taken to solve these crimes. Revealing much knowledge concerning the police department and canine search-and-rescue, she skillfully weaves it into her complex plot. For a romantic mystery that’s difficult to put down, pick up a copy of Kate James’s Home to Stay.
