Coming Home (Crescent Valley Book 1) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The first story is A Growling Good Gift and is somewhat of a precursor to Coming Home. It's about Isabella and Lucas, two bear shifters whose respective parents force them to attend a clan Christmas gathering. Prior to the gathering, the two do not know each other. However, the host purposely "on accident" assigns them to the same guest quarters and that's how they meet. Little to nothing happens in this story. Isabella and her mom make cookies. Lucas and Liam (the hosting cousin) chop wood. An uncle from WV is disrespectful to Liam. Isabella and Lucas have sex. That's it.
The plural for the family name Bradwick is spelled Bradwick's throughout the entire story. (Oddly, it is spelled correctly as Bradwicks in the second story.) There are also various other grammar errors. In total, the story had virtually no plot. I'm not even sure if Isabella and Lucas were fated mates or not. One of them ponders the idea at one point but there's no mention of it other than that. Who knows.
The second story is Coming Home. I quit about 3 chapters in because I could not take it any longer. It starts off with Isabella riding on the bake of Lucas's motorcycle while they head to Crescent Valley. On the very first page, though, he is referred to as Sam. Two sentences later and he's Lucas again. From what I can tell, Sam is another cousin's mate (or possibly just boyfriend based on the next chapter.) The next chapter is from Cole's (main male character) point of view and can just be summed up as Cole Is A Lonely Sad Sack.
Third chapter was from the point of view of somebody named Nova. It was then that I stopped forcing myself to read this book. Nova is not the main female character. I checked ahead and it turns out that Julie, the main female character, doesn't show up until the 6th out of 16 chapters.
Anyway, this book and both stories are messes. I started out writing this, planning to be generous and round up to two stars. But after thinking about it more, I can't justify more than one star
