Long Shadows (Common Law, #1)
by Kate Sherwood with Riptide Publishing
LA cop Jericho Crewe got the hell out of Mosely, Montana, when he was seventeen. Fifteen years later, he’s back, and everything is just as messed up as when he left. He planned a quick visit to deal with his injured father, but of course things are never that simple. Family complications, police complications, social complications—and, as always, Wade Granger complications.
Jericho and Wade had been so close, once upon a time. First friends, then more than friends—and then, after Jericho’s escape, nothing. Wade’s magnetism hasn’t been lessened by a decade and a half apart; even when Jericho learns that Wade is the prime suspect in the death of Jericho’s father, the old connection still sparks.
When Jericho’s newly discovered half siblings are kidnapped, he needs to trust someone to help him find them. Wade’s a terrible choice, but Jericho’s never been known for his good judgment. Anyway, he’d rather make a bad decision with Wade than a good one with anybody else.
Suspense filled this book from word one. Jericho walks into the unknown when he returns home, and surprises come at him from every turn. Unraveling the mystery of how his father died and protecting a newly discovered family are his focus. There's a good deal of set up in this book, introducing characters and their backgrounds, which slowed the book down a bit. But I'm hopeful the next book will be even better than the first.
Another Kate Sherwood good read.
