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.

What was THAT?

MAD fucking MAX in Mosely?

Wow, this small town nest has really deserved an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. Because the list of crimes that were committed here is VERY impressive. But THIS LAST sequel exceeded ALL my imagination of criminality, it set completely new benchmarks!

Forget the mob from previous sequels, forget feds, forget corrupted cops, forget small and unimportant criminals with their ridiculous smuggling activities, forget the biker gang with its connection to the Chicago mob… HERE it is about THE WAR against the small town. HERE is about to survive. HERE is about the LAST MAN STANDING. And in the middle of this chaos Jericho and Wade hand in hand, gun in gun.

I’d say, we can talk about a genre change here. Militia groups attack a sheriff department to set free the prisoners?! Full armed? In the USA (not in Brasilia or Columbia?) Not a fantasy? Who knows.

It is for sure a great basis for a blockbuster movie, but I don’t actually enjoy reading actions. I have to confess, I skimmed through the scenes, where the battle REALLY took place.

But even if I STILL had some eye-roll-moments and skimmed through the battle scenes, I enjoyed the last book pretty much.

And of course the main reason for it were Jericho and Wade. They were BOTH so confident and brave and…SEXY!

They two together…

I can’t just have enough of them. And I forgive this series, or this sequel, all these slightly overloaded events – these two main characters alone made this series worth to read it.

The ending was just…


Remember, how we were all guessing, how the author would solve the conflict between two totally opposite lagers they represented? She did it EXCELLENT. I didn’t consider THAT to tell the truth, and I like THIS solution the best.

And do you know WHAT? I can imagine that it was not the last time when we met those both guys…

NetGalley copy of Home Fires (Common Law #4) provided by Riptide Publishing in exchange of an honest review.


A passionate reader from Germany. I learned to read at the age of 4 and never stopped since then, though my books from that time were very different from what they are now. English is my third language, and I'm sorry for all grammar mistakes I made in my reviews. But I assure you, that my reading English is much better than my writing English. I'm a seeker for the books that differ from mainstream, that provoke the reader or have very often very opposite ratings.
