Summary

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 Review

HOME TO STAY is a good mix of light suspense and romance. The characters are endearing and the story emotional, with a very sweet ending. An enjoyable read from the first to the last page.

It took me a few chapters before I was sure about Shannon. She's full of self-doubt in the beginning, but she moved past it and becomes a strong heroine. I loved Sawyer and Dylan right away. Sawyer was rather indecisive but I got it being in the situation he was. I loved the dogs and how they're weaved through the story! The romance is rather complicated because of the situation and there were quite a few ups and downs both romantically and in regards to Dylan's abduction. This one was quite a roller-coaster but turned out well. 

In the end, was it what I wished for? I loved the characters and enjoyed the story, making for a satisfying read.

Content: Some mild language and a child abduction, but clean.
Source: I received a complimentary copy from the author through Prism Book Tours, which did not require a review nor affect it in any way.
