Blurb:  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.


Review:  Home Fires is the fourth and final installment of the Common Law series and it does not disappoint. Everything has led up to this but I still didn’t see this coming. Mosely has attracted some true fanatical crazies bringing more trouble to the small town. As if they don’t have enough of their own! Of course Jericho and therefore Wade get mixed up in it because Jericho is an honorable and impulsive guy. The way the town and the Federal Agents who have been monitoring them come together for the sake of protecting the innocent is strangely charming. Not everyone will make it out unharmed or even alive. This book brings the term “We take care of our own!” to life in the streets of Mosely. I was turning the pages and on edge for most of the book. I loved it!

Wade and Jericho are finally admitting they can’t keep away from each other. They come to the realization that everything else will work itself out as long as they have each other. Then chaos ensues throwing them into the fire. Home Fires offers a little more steam than previous books but it’s still fairly tame. I have no problem with this because the best part for me is the push and pull of the guys. The tension built from them resisting what we’ve been waiting on since book 1. And what they lost all those years ago. Getting past all that hurt from the past in the face of danger seems a little more possible. Accepting each other for who they are. They’re still in love with each other and it’s been inevitable since the moment Jericho got back into town. Wade’s declarations of love in this book are pretty awesome and not in ways you may expect. His character is so much fun! I love and hate how Jericho responds to him.

I highly recommend this series. If I could have I’m sure would have binge read the entire thing. This one is action packed. I could easily see this being a movie. The dialogue moves the book along and offers us plenty of comedic moments to balance out all the trouble the guys get in. I feel like I know all the characters pretty well by now so I was completely invested in the outcome of the events in this book. Fantastic finally. I’d love to just keep reading about Jericho and Wade.
