The Homecoming Shelter Bay #1Tching his men die then being tortured Navy SEAL Sax Douchett decides it s time to go home to Shelter Bay Oregon and get away rom death and terrorism It doesn t help when the town treats him like a hero All he wants it to be left alone Then his dog digs up an old human bone and Sax is thrown together with his high school crush Sheriff Kara ConwayKara returned to Shelter Bay after her husband was killed in the line of duty and then her ather Le grand Meaulnes - Texte abrégé (Jeunes Adultes) former sheriff died in a supposed hunting accident She hopes to lead a peaceful like with her young son But things start going crazy with human bones turning up a shooting being assaulted herself and then the return of Sax He makes no bones that he wants her but Kara isn t sure she s ready or willing to start a relationshipReviewI really enjoyed Ross s High Risk series Theirst book was so so but then each one got better and by the end I was loving the series I THOUGHT this book was supposed to be another High Risk bookit initially had a title of Ricochet similar in type to the other HR Books But Wolfie Paints the Town: A Little Wood Story for whatever reasonwhether Ross wanted to change up the series or her publisher pushed her to go a different wayshe spun the HR series into the Shelter Bay series And I have so say I really wished she hadn t This bookell so completely and utterly lat or me I was so bored while reading itFor me the biggest problem of this book was that it dragged alongmeandering this way wandering over that way never really ocusing on anything of meaning and digging in It made everything very superficial There was a perfectly good suspense plot waiting to be dug into and instead it kept getting shoved aside like a pesky leaf For a romantic suspense an and someone who was expecting this to BE a romantic suspense it was really Right Turns: From Liberal Activist to Conservative Champion in 35 Unconventional Lessons frustrating This book was contemporary romance that shoved in some romantic suspense overtones not aull romantic suspense like the High Risk books wereThe romance was also pretty Politically Incorrect flat in my opinion It seemed likeor most of the book they just keep going round and round the big pink elephant of their attraction to each other I just wanted them to get on with it already Then when Kare Beyond Varallan finally does give in to Sax the author skips over all the good stuff You get like half a page summarizing activities and dates and how they realling in love with each other and don t get to actually experience any of it AnnoyingThen there was the oddity of Kara s mother She s widowed and suddenly develops an interest in her husband s best riend I m sorry but I really have no interest in reading about sixty year olds having sex I just don t Okay And what was up with that Stepford ish antasy Kara s mother had That was reakin bizarreOh and I can t orget to mention the ghosts What ghosts you might ask The I can t Dona Flor forget to mention the ghosts What ghosts you might ask The haunting Sax Very odd and almost illitting aspect of the story Really I didn t mind it but I m still not sure it worked or the book But anyway Sax is being haunted by his three SEAL teammates The whole thing is Treated So Super Casual That It S Than A Little so super casual that it s than a little Sax hides it because he doesn t want people thinking he has PTSD So you re kinda waiting to see if he tells Kara how she ll react considering her late husband had post war PTSD Then he inally does tell her and it s skimmed over You get a page of so saying Sax talked all night to her about his time as a SEAL what happened to him and the ghosts and that s it You get almost nothing if anything of Kara s reaction Ridiculous It just continued the thread of this book being completely superficialWhich was such a disappointment I really expected so much rom this story I would have much preferred Ross stick with the High Risk series type than move on to this contemporary romancesuspense wannabe This would be a great beachvacation read Interesting story but easy enough to put down when life gets in the way of reading I loved the heroine but I couldn t decide if our hero was just a laid back alpha or an aggressive beta My only complaint was the lack of heat There were a ew tame love scenes but they didn t uite seem to it the supposed passion between the coupleB I enjoyed this book immensely Although Sam s return to town inds him some sort of a Navel SEALS hero he tries to hide it and move on but the town won t allow it After deciding that the restaurant his parents once owned would be a perfect business Remarkable Creatures for him he puts his thoughts toward that until an oldlame steps back into his life His best riend wife Kara is now a widow and also the town sheriff after her ather was killed in a so called hunting accident six months ago Kara and her son Tyre are bound to make a life together after the tragic accident that left them both alone Her husband has been killed in a routine call of domestic violence and although she didn t want to come back home she decided after her Heroes Adrift (Hero, fathers death that the small town was just what they needed as well as she stepped into herathers shoes and the town sheriffI would love to go into details and explain all of it to you but then why take the surprise away Its a romance with a twistthat keeps you turning the pagestill the endwhen you Chuck and Danielle find out that really happened to Kara satherWOWits a must read. E in his heart But as he cautiously reconnects with Kara and bonds with her young son another long held secret in Shelter Bar threatens their second chance at a life together. If you enjoyed Robyn Carr s Virgin River or Thunder Point series or Susan Mallary s Fools Gold books this series about Shelter Bay should be right up your alley Ex military heroes and strong independent women who own cute animals I totally overlooked this book when it Escaping the Endless Adolescence: How We Can Help Our Teenagers Grow Up Before They Grow Old first came out I thought it was a cozy type of romance Iollow Ms Ross on Twitter and she uoted something Dogs Behaving Badly: An A-Z Guide to Understanding and Curing Behavorial Problems in Dogs from one of her characters and I was completely intrigued so I asked her what book that wasrom Turns out it was Gray Bishop from one of the books in this trilogy Since I enjoyed her High Risk novels so much I added these to the pileBoy am I glad I didn t miss it Trey was charming and adorable Sax was sexy and wonderful and Kara was smart and capable Velcro was pretty cute too LOL I liked that Sax would let Kara do what she needed to and supported her completely without undermining her or going around her He did do things without checking with herirst but only because she had important things to do and they were minor tasks The big stuff taking care of her kid helping with her job he always respected her enough to talk with her The ghosts scenes were a little weird especially as we as readers didn t really deal with his issues rom war On to the next book I love JoAnn Ross If you ve read her High Risk series you know she can write some red hot heroes But when she left that series to create the softer Shelter Bay series witness the change in cover art hotsexy danger guys to a soft and peaceful place or a wounded guy to all I thought she might lose something in the downshift Who was I kidding They re still hot sexy and dangerousand by moving them to a small coastal town Joann has multiplied their impactas the series expands rom the current 3 books I don t know if Shelter Bay can handle all that luciousnessIn book 1 The Homecoming Sax Douchett has come home Liar from the war His Cajunamily had long ago transplanted itself Noir from the hurricane beleaguered Louisiana coast to anotherishing town in the Pacific northwest Two years earlier his parents had closed down their Cajun restaurantdance hall when it had been battered by the one two punch of a winter ice storm and ironically hurricane Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are force winds coming off a Pacific typhoon So what s an ex soldier to do but settle in to rebuild what was once a community meeting place and hopefully take up the threads of his old lifePart of that old life is the girl he loved but who was off limits because she belonged to his older brother s bestriend During his senior year he had proven just how honorable he was by watching over her Gaffer for thatriend when he enlisted Now years later she has returned to Shelter Bay a widow with a young son and a sheriff s badge Kara thought she would just be Circumstantial Evidence filling the job temporarily after herather vacated the position by getting shot Supposedly It Was A Hunting Accident was a hunting accident unsolved but when she discovers he had been looking into some cold cases she begins to wonder if it was murder And when bad boy Sax renews their old riendship she begins to wonder if it was murder And when bad boy Sax renews their old riendship with a new sexier spin Kara decides that maybe her hometown of Shelter Bay has been misnamed cause there is no protection rom this bad boy when he s made up his mind to A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping finally make her hisGreatamily and small town connections make this both a cozy AND a sexy read Anybody who likes Nora Roberts or Robyn Carr will love JoAnn Ross In JoAnn Ross s The Homecoming the Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) first installment in the Shelter Bay romantic suspense series this novel would move you to tears and tug your heart For Sax Douchett this Cajunormer Navy SEAL came home Summer Meditations from the war with the ghosts of his past He didn t plan on going to his homecoming parade when he met hisormer God Said, Ha!: A Memoir flame and brother s bestriend s widow Kara Conway a widow with a

First in a heartwarming new series rom the New York Times bestselling author Former Navy SEAL Sax Douchett returns to his home town and is hailed as a local hero But startin. ,

I was not as sure that there was going to be an HEA because I did not eel the connection between Sax and Kara The two had known each other all of their lives and yet they acted as strangers throughout the whole bookInstead of revealing a budding romance Kara harped on her marriage to Jared her deceased husband and the best What Every American Should Know About the Rest of the World friend of Sax s brother and how much she had loved him since her sandbox days Of course Sax was scared to love Kara because she had belonged to one of hisriends but even he realized that they were adults and needed to move on I I Got a New Friend finallyelt the connection in the last The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War few pagesThe suspense in the storyell Experiencing the Resurrection: The Everyday Encounter That Changes Your Life flat The majority of the book wasocused on the crime but there was no real thrill and it appeared as if no one took the crime serious even during the action scenes I ound myself wanting to get back to the romance which was on the backburner I was disappointed with the character development All of the characters sort of blended in and no one had a real identity Kara wanted to be tough and independent like her mother but she was a sorry sheriff having to get her butt kicked than once All of the women in the story high ived each other by claiming they were so strong and the men just wanted to protect them There was also some unresolved and rushed storylines throughout the book For one Kara s mom and one of her deputy s start a romance It was mentioned that he liked her mother but was afraid to make a move because he was best riend s with Kara s ather Then after an incident where Kara s mother Babes in Toyland: The Making and Selling of a Rock and Roll Band finally shows her emotions they make love Aew days later they are planning their lives together For a book this long there was ample time to reveal a slow romance in the background Then there was the The Meaning of Star Trek fact that Kara and Sax never talked about hereelings Mirage: Napoleon's Scientists and the Unveiling of Egypt for her dead husband It was mentioned at the end that they had a discussion and he accepted that she would always love him but it was never shown to the reader Overall this book had a lot of potential but there was a lot ofactors that made it ell lat This book has romance mystery and Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World family in it I have read the Shelter Bay books out of order and they can be read as stand alone books Sax is back in Shelter Bay after he retires as a SEAL He meets up with Kara who he loved in school even through she loved someone else Kara is now the Sheriff and a widow with a eight year old son So I have enjoyed the previous books I have read by this author This oneell short There will be some minor SPOILERS below This guy was an ex SEAL In this book that was a so what kind of element He might as well have been a dentist or a rodeo clown She was a sheriff If you re coming into this expecting romantic suspense look elsewhere There
was a lame 
a lame in it But pages and pages went by without a mention of the mystery There were only two possible suspects or the killer so you had a 5050 chance on guessing who done it The whole book wandered aimlessly around I ound myself just not really caring There was no suspense in the mystery plot and no heat in the romance They admitted their love although she didn t come right out and say it the hero heroine and reader knew it out and say it the hero heroine and reader knew it the book meandered on or another 30 or 40 pages With The Author Telling Not Showing author telling not showing that they went to various tourist destinations and had a swell time alling in love Then there was a very surreal conversation that the heroine had with her mother where the mom tells the heroine about a Sometime After Midnight fantasy that she used to keep herself calm in the hectic early days of her marriage This scene went on and on telling every detail of how the mother imagined herself living June Cleaver s life I could see absolutely no point in hearing thisor 4 pages Then suddenly in the middle of the book we shift into the mother s POV as she Stop Inflammation Now!: A Step-By-Step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation--The Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related Conditions falls in love with her dead husband s bestriend So a couple of chapters of them bumping uglies If you re going to have multiple storylines running you need to start them all off pretty soon in the book so we don t go WTF 23rds of the way through the book There was an obvious throw in of a character Eyes Behind the Lines: L Company Rangers in Vietnam, 1969 for aorthcoming book He was introduced in a very heavy handed way Not pertinent to the story at all But then a whole lot of this book wasn t pertinent I m not real School Dazed fond of series set in uaint little towns There seem to be many many on the market lately and this is sort of a ho hum addition to the crowd Finally there were ghosts in the book You weren t uite sure if they were real or part of the hero s PTSD Since the dog could see them and the air got cold when they were there I think they were meant to be real I kind of liked them best of all the book But she kind of didn t do anything with them and they were wastedWell I might give the next in this series a try but if it isn t substantially better than this one I won t gourther than that Boy this book just dragged on and on and one I was expecting so much out of it and instead got nearly bored to deathSeries NoteFirst book in Ross s Shelter Bay series which is a spin off of her High Risk series There are references to the High Risk series characters romances events but I think you can start this series on it s ownSummaryAfter wa.
