    Home Fires is the second book in Paterka s James Bay series of novels I really liked this one Rose Gallagher comes back to James Bay to take care of her ailing mother She s sort of having a personal crisis of sorts, which is one that will probably sound familiar to other people in their late 20s I know it certainly sounds familiar to me I think all of us sort of go through a quarter life crisis where we are not quite sure whether or not we are taking the right path Are we doing the righ Home Fires is the second book in Paterka s James Bay series of novels I really liked this one Rose Gallagher comes back to James Bay to take care of her ailing mother She s sort of having a personal crisis of sorts, which is one that will probably sound familiar to other people in their late 20s I know it certainly sounds familiar to me I think all of us sort of go through a quarter life crisis where we are not quite sure whether or not we are taking the right path Are we doing the right thing Have we chosen the right career path Are we meeting the right people Are we living in the right place There are so many questions and Rose is in the middle of trying to answer them all but sometimes, as we all know, there are no good answers She could go to Washington to become a big shot lawyer but it might mean compromising her personal ethics She could stay in James Bay but then what would she be doing with her life if she just stayed in ...

    Wanted to love this book but Rose just drove me crazy First half of the book she was okay but eventually all I could think was that she needed some anti anxiety medication an anger management group She would become a shrill, immature, stubborn witch and then refuse to apologize to Mike most of the time She was supposed to be a cool, calm attorney though I saw no evidence of that And what was up with all the men wanting her when she acts like that Mike was 95% great There were just a Wanted to love this book but Rose just drove me crazy First half of the book she was okay but eventually all I could think was that she needed some anti anxiety medication an anger management group She would become a shrill, immature, stubborn witch and then refuse to apologize to Mike most of the time She was supposed to be a cool, calm attorney though I saw no evidence of that And what was up with all the men wanting her when she acts like that Mike was 95% great There were just a few times he developed a Jekyl and Hyde response with no real explanation stops kissing her when she mentions his brother is outside not unusual but he totally goes cold distant which is and it did not have anything to do with the later mentioned tragedy.My other complaint was that you could easily take out 20 pages of over description about unnecessary things , yet a few details I would have liked were not really addressed or the few kisses we got that were mentionedbut not described I...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story I love a sexy guy who is wounded with a heart ready to be healed Mike fits that bill just fine This is a thoroughly enjoyable journey beginning with the spark of first interest We re given a front row seat that allows us to watch that spark grow into a flame And you have to wonder a few times if they are going to be left sifting through the ashes You expect the HEA, but Ms Paterka makes you guess a few times whether or not it s going to turn out that way I I thoroughly enjoyed this story I love a sexy guy who is wounded with a heart ready to be healed Mike fits that bill just fine This is a thoroughly enjoyable journey beginning with the spark of first interest We re given a front row seat that allows us to watch that spark grow into a flame And you have to wo...

    I decided to buy this book because of how much I enjoyed the first book in the James Bay series, Fatty Patty I can t say I liked this book quite as much as the first, but it s still a well written and enjoyable read that stands on its own even if you don t read the previous book Our main character, Rose sometimes referred to as Cecilia or Cecilia Rose , has come back to James Bay for the summer so she can take care of her mother who s having knee surgery Along the way she meets Mike in a l I decided to buy this book because of how much I enjoyed the first book in the James Bay series, Fatty Patty I can t say I liked this book quite as much as the first, but it s still a well written and enjoyable read that stands on its own even if you don t read the previous book Our main character, Rose sometimes referred to as Cecilia or Cecilia Rose , has come back to James B...

    The thing you can be guaranteed about when reading one of Kathleen s books is that you get a good story with believable characters I read this book while being in hospital supporting my sick daughter and it was the perfect distraction Rose returns home to James Bay to care for her mother who is having a knee replacement It s a far slower pace than her big city lawyer role where all she does is work and sleep She didn t count on meeting the local assistant fire chief who is busy investigating The thing you can be guaranteed about when reading one of Kathleen s books is that you get a good story with believable characters I read this book while being in hospital supporting my sick daughter and it was the perfect distraction Rose returns home to James Bay to care for her mothe...
