Home Fires by Kate Sherwood


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.

The Common Law novels can be read on their own, or enjoyed in series order.

This is the perfect conclusion to a wonderfully original series. Smuggling and biker gangs are the least of the Mosely, Montana Sheriff Department’s problems when an armed militia decides to take on the FBI. And somehow, Jericho and Wade find themselves at the centre of the ensuing chaos.

The first three books set up the characters and relationships that define Jericho and Wade’s small border town and this final book pulls everything together with dark humour and a couple of thrilling action scenes. There are even a few softer moments between Jericho and Wade. By this fourth story, I really loved everyone in Mosely. Kayla is wonderful. Her deputies and the DEA agents are mostly almost useful this time round.

I live in a country where even police officers don’t carry guns so the shootouts between law enforcement and civilians armed with things like RPGs were difficult for me to wrap my head around. I know from news stories that Americans have guns and they do like to use them so the action in this book might not be as unrealistic as it felt. Realistic or not, the action scenes are exciting and thoroughly entertaining. Wade is a grumpy, sarcastic, and creative anti-hero and I absolutely loved him by the time the dust settled.

I have enjoyed every moment of Jericho and Wade’s charming and frustrating non-romance through all four books but even with fifty pages left to go, I had no idea how Jericho the cop and Wade the criminal were ever going to make a life together. The answer in the epilogue is absolutely perfect.

I would recommend this series highly to anyone looking for something fresh and original. This dark, gritty, and quirky series doesn’t sit neatly within a genre but I’m so glad I found it.

Kate Sherwood started writing about the same time she got back on a horse after almost twenty years away from riding. She’d like to think she was too young for it to be a midlife crisis, but apparently she was ready for some changes!

Kate grew up near Toronto, Ontario, and went to school in Montreal, then Vancouver. But for the last decade or so she’s been a country girl. Sure, she misses some of the conveniences of the city, but living close to nature makes up for those lacks. She’s living in Ontario’s “cottage country”—other people save up their time and come to spend their vacations in her neighborhood, but she gets to live there all year round!

Since her first book was published in 2010, she’s kept herself busy with novels, novellas, and short stories in almost all the subgenres of m/m romance. Contemporary, suspense, sci-fi, or fantasy—the settings are just the backdrop for her characters to answer the important questions: How much can they share, and what do they need to keep? Can they bring themselves to trust someone, after being disappointed so many times? Are they brave enough to take a chance on love?

Kate’s books balance drama with humor, angst with optimism. They feature strong, damaged men who fight themselves harder than they fight anyone else. And, wherever possible, there are animals: horses, dogs, cats ferrets, squirrels... sometimes it’s easier to bond with a nonhuman, and most of Kate’s men need all the help they can get.

With her writing, Kate is still learning, still stretching herself, and still enjoying what she does. She’s looking forward to sharing a lot more stories in the future. (And check out her imaginary friend, Cate Cameron, who writes m/f romance and YA.)
