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!
Rating: 4 stars
I couldn't help but love Seth's carefree nature but he is more guarded than you think and it actually makes me want to wrap him up in bubblewrap so he has to listen and give him a good talking to about taking chances. Sacha on the other hand is guarded about his past, for good reason, but he is open for the first time that love is possible. One of the things I loved about this pair is that on the surface they really should not mix, they appear to be almost too opposite to fit the "opposites attract" trope but really they aren't that different when you get to know them.
As a history buff and lover of historical fiction, Seth's desire to learn Owen and Theodore's story really sucked me in, probably even more than Seth's need to discover their tale. There's a little bit of everything in As Sure as the Sun: romance, history, lust, family, friends, and of course love.
This installment in the Accidental Roots series is a standalone and can be read without the first three entries but for me, I am glad I read them in order. There are cameos of the other Skagit couples from the first three with minor references to their stories that I felt knowing those journeys made it flow together better. But, I don't think I would have been lost either had I started with As Sure as the Sun. However you choose to start, I highly recommend this series because I am already looking forward to number five.
