Seth Culver’s childhood wasn’t always a good one, but luckily, he was taken in by his wonderful and loving Aunt Marnie. And, it did leave Seth with the ability to read people. He moved to Skagit to try and find some type of a family connection, and ends up no only finding his half-brother, Adam, and Adam’s boyfriend, Micah, but he makes quite a few friends too. Seth is a really sweet guy, has a green thumb, and loves historic old buildings. But he’s afraid of opening his heart to anyone.
While working on his renovation, Sacha has a run-in with a ladder and needs some caffeine. He winds up at the Coffee Place, where Seth just happens to be exiting. Seth immediately becomes concerned with Sacha’s appearance, and takes him under his wing. When Seth takes Sacha back to the Warrick, he is absolutely taken in by the historic building, and as their personal connection grows, Seth makes it a point to stop by the Warrick to see the progress on the renovation. And to see Sacha. With the discovery of some hidden boxes, one in particular that holds an old book with the inscription, “To my dear Owen, may these words find you. TG”, it leads Seth on a journey to discover their identities.
Along with the renovation, and wanting to get to know Seth much better, Sacha finds himself in a sticky situation with his mischievous foster brother, Peter Crane. Sacha comes up with a shaky idea that will get him and Seth away from Skagit, but he’s not sure where it will lead.
Elle Keaton really surprised me with this fourth installment of the Accidental Roots series. As Sure As The Sun takes a different turn from the previous books, as there aren’t any FBI cases to be concerned about, and I had no idea that the storyline would bring Seth and Sacha together. They have a sort of quiet but passionate connection, and it was interesting how both their childhoods had so much conflict and insecurity. I really liked Seth’s determination to do as much as he could to find Owen and TG, and Sacha supported his determination in his own way. I could not see either Seth or Sacha being any different than the way they were created.
If you follow this series, Adam and Noah make an appearance along with many of the characters from previous novels, which is always fun and interesting. Of course, there’s a sprinkle of new characters too. The Owen and TG plotline was developed from a true story about Elle Keaton’s, Great-Uncle Owen, and she provides details with a Dedication at the end.
I have been invested in this series from the start, and the author has done nothing but kept me interested and entertained.
As Sure as the Sun is Book 4 in Elle Keaton's Accidental Roots series. This book can be read as a standalone, though there are characters, couples and a storyline from previous books mentioned in this one. Sacha was in a previous book undercover so very little was known about him. We also met Seth previously, and a little of his story was shared as he was reunited with a brother he'd never met.
It was time for Sacha to make some changes in his life. He retired from his job at the US Marshalls, bought a building in Skagit, and decided to remodel it himself. In what became normal for Sacha, he fell off a ladder, which led him to meeting Seth. Both men are solitary but felt a connection upon their first meeting. Seth is interested in the building, Sacha is renovating and invites himself in to learn more about it. He's also intrigued by the big, silent, standoffish Sacha. Though Seth is solitary, he likes people and wants to be around them. Sacha on the other hand just wants everyone to leave him alone. But Sacha can't help but be drawn to Seth and to be intrigued by the history of his building. But, as has become normal for the men of Skagit, things are never that easy.
Sacha may have only been 39, but at heart, he was 1039! He really was the epitome of a grumpy old man, even if he was only 39. He didn't like to interact with others, was gruff, and always ready for life to bring him down. But, I liked him for some odd reason, even before I got his childhood story which was heartbreaking! I was excited to read Seth's story since his introduction in Book 1 and am so happy he's finally found love. Seth is a happy go lucky guy on the surface, but he had a rough childhood until his aunt saved him.
This book is different in the first three because there were no crimes, murders, or any of the such taking up the pages. And, though I enjoyed the first three books, it was nice to know that there was more to Skagit than criminals! But the author did bring some mystery into the story with the storyline of Owen and Theodore. Seth and Sacha searched until they found the answers that were hidden in the walls of their building and we got a delightful meeting with Owen's sister and nephew, characters I absolutely adored!
This is a series I definitely recommend you read! And, even though this book is a standalone, do yourself a favor and start from the beginning that way you can get the full enjoyment of getting to know the characters of Skagit, Washington. It may seem like a small, sleepy town but you'll never believe everything that's going on behind the scenes!
