Storm Season by Elle Keaton

They say you can’t go home again, Adam Klay doesn’t intend to until the death of his father, a famous artist, forces his return to Skagit, Washington. Cleaning up his father’s chaotic life was never on Adam’s bucket list. Worse, Adam finds himself inexplicably drawn to the elusive, terminally-clumsy, gorgeous, Micah Ryan. No way is he getting involved with someone from his hometown; he’s always insisted the best view of Skagit was in his rearview mirror.

Micah Ryan has been coasting on auto-pilot since his family was killed in a car accident a decade earlier. He runs a web business and has an irritable cat. He hardly leaves his house, unless it is for his afternoon espresso. His world tips upside down when Adam Klay rolls into town. For the first time in years, he feels alive. Unfortunately, Micah’s return to the living has been noticed and is not appreciated.

Someone has a secret. Someone is exploiting the vulnerable youth population in Skagit. Teenagers are disappearing, young women turning up dead, the dirty secrets of Skagit are surfacing.

Hard-nosed Federal Investigator Adam Klay and reclusive Micah Ryan seem like an unlikely couple from the outside. Both men turn out to be far more complex than my initial impressions of them suggested. Neither one of them is looking for a relationship. They both live with few people who are close to them. This set up really worked for me because I love seeing lonely people find love.

I like that we get to meet the men alone and then get to see them discover each other. While their relationship is developing, the discovery of dead bodies coupled with arson attacks lead the men to think it may be connected to the death of Micah’s family years before.

I loved sitting back and watching this story come together and connecting all the dots. Briefly around the middle of the story, I wished it was moving faster but I just needed to be patient. The latter part of the story moves much faster. I also loved seeing Micah grow in confidence and come out of his grief and start living again.

Storm Season is a really good romantic suspense story and is the first in the Accidental Roots series. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone (I read book #5 first). I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series over the next few months.

Author, photographer, rare Pacific Northwest Native, Elle grew up in Seattle, WA., with the Cascade Mountain range to the east and Olympics to the west. Less than two hours northwest lie the majestic San Juan Islands. To the northeast is the Methow Valley and the scrub deserts of Eastern Washington. Geography ripe with material.

A graduate of Western Washington University, Elle has a BS in biology which taught her to be tenacious. The closest she has come to biology since then is having two kids. Like an experiment or something. She’s lived in four states (none of which were gaseous), London England, and Hong Kong; always knows what time it is, and has no problem finding parking even in the most difficult places. Cannot balance a checking account.

Elle's series Accidental Roots, mostly set in the Skagit Valley of Western Washington, will make its debut spring of 2017. Storm Season is tender, sometimes irreverent, full of nosy neighbors and help when the hero didn’t think he needed it. Writing has always been a passion but not something she was able to take seriously until recently. Now her head is full of ideas and not enough time in each day.
