I love this series by Elle Keaton, in fact it was one of my Best Reads of 2017 so when the opportunity to read the newest installment crossed my desk, how could I not jump at the chance? River Home is a perfect fit for the Skagit universe, not only do we get to know Miguel from Buck Swanfeldt’s Garage but we also get to meet Agent Nate Richardson working the case with Adam Klay. The characters are as appealing and engaging as ever, definitely fictional but with just the right amount of what I like to call "next door neighbor factor". I just wanted to wrap Miguel in one never-ending bear hug to keep him safe and loved but I also knew he had the strength to say "Bring it on!". As for Nate, well he screamed the classic case of needing to risk something before discovering how important it or they are to him.
As for the mystery aspect, Elle Keaton blends the case perfectly with the characters and romance between them. We get to see some of our favorites from previous entries that helped fill in their own lives as well as make Miguel and Nate's more rounded. Speaking of secondary characters who were main in the other installments, if asked whether River Home is a standalone I would say, yes technically. However, I am glad I have read them in order I just find the connections between friends to flow better which in turn just adds to the warmth and heart of the story but the case too just meshed better in my head. But, yes it could be read without having read the previous entries I just don't think I would recommend doing so.
River Home(the whole Accidental Roots series really) at its core is about friendships and love and reminding us that family does not have to be blood alone, or at all, its about heart and those who are there beside you that makes a family. Elle Keaton's Accidental Roots series is not only entertaining but it also reminds us what is really important in life and when you can blend those two factors together, you know you are reading something special.
Miguel is outgoing, teasing, and a huge flirt with just about everyone. He’s a pretty open guy, and you wouldn’t know from his outward attitude what he’d gone through in his past. Nate may seem reserved and dedicated to his career with the FBI, but once he meets Miguel and they spend some time together and Nate realizes what he wants, he is 100% all in and ready to explore everything. Nate is the type of person who does what he wants and doesn’t care what other may think about him—not something you might expect from him based on first impressions.
Put Miguel and Nate together, and you get an intriguing couple who I very much wanted to see get their happily ever after, and who balance each other out quite well. Usually I lean towards one of the main couple characters as my favorite, but with these two it was impossible for me to choose. They both had characteristics that drew me to them, and together they just fit so well and their chemistry was downright incendiary. Some readers may think things between them moved too fast, but I attribute that to Miguel and Nate’s personalities, especially Nate’s since once he knows what he wants he is all in and goes after it wholeheartedly.
There’s a good blend of drama, tension, and romance between Nate’s case, Miguel’s ex, and Miguel and Nate’s evolving relationship. The story can stand on its own, but reading the series in order will help you enjoy it even more. There are returning characters from the previous books, and you’ll want to read their stories as well if you haven’t already; well-written characters are something at which this author excels.
River Home gets 4.5 stars from me, and is a story I highly recommend to M/M romance fans—especially if you love stories driven by the characters. Again, you’ll really want to read the series in order to get the most enjoyment out of it. This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
