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




I loved reading the other K-9 series books by Kate James, and so I was excited for the opportunity to read HOME TO STAY. This story didn’t disappoint. It was an emotional rollercoaster ride.
What would you do if you woke up one morning and found your child missing? For Sawyer Evans, this is his reality. His son Dylan has gone missing while on a camping trip. Sawyer’s frantic fearful search for his son leaps off the pages. His emotions raw and gripping. I could put myself in his place and it was terrifying.
K-9 rookie officer Shannon Clemens is called in, with her sweet dog Darwin, to search for the boy. Sawyer’s missing son reminds Shannon of a child that didn’t come home and she is determined that Dylan’s story will have a different ending.
Through all the twists and turns this story will take you on, you’ll be on the edge of your seat as the search for Dylan goes in unexpected directions and brings up question after question. Who really took Dylan?
Kate James has weaved a wonderful story, filled with heartache and fear…and love. When these two wounded people come together to bring Dylan home, they will have you cheering for them to have a happy ending of their own throughout the entire book. I would highly recommend HOME TO STAY and the rest of the K-9 series.
