A Stella Review:Close to Home (Sawyer’s Ferry #4) by Cate Ashwood

RATING 4,5 out of 5 star

I excelled at two things: systems engineering and going completely unnoticed.
The engineering took work and determination. The invisibility came naturally. Until one day, the wrong person noticed me. Battered and broken, I fled, escaping to Sawyer’s Ferry and the only friends I’d ever had.
Now, I just needed to figure out what I was going to do next.

Life was good.
I had a great job, good friends, and a family who loved me. Even my roommate was decent. At least he was until he let his nudist brother come to visit. The opportunity to house-sit and help an injured friend couldn’t have come at a better time.
All I’d needed was to avoid an awkward situation for a few days, but I got more than I bargained for when my entire uncomplicated life flipped upside down. The last thing I’d been looking for was love, but it wasn’t until Witt that I realized just how much I’d been missing out on.

Close To Home was another great addiction to the Sawyer’s Ferry series. Cate Ashwood delivered another well done story. I like this kind of plot, even if the first pages, where Witt is struggling with his life, were not so easy to read. Luckly he reached his friends, Jackson and Logan, who were ready to open their home and host Witt during his recovery. Witt has lost everything, he really has no one in the world and it broke my heart more than once, his past, his choices, I wanted to hug him and shelter him from himself sometimes. Mason was a good match, so different, full of friends, with a job he loved, a huge family who support him. From the first time they met it was clear to me how good they were for each other and I had a smile on my face till the end, a lovely and sweet HEA.

Moreover in Close To Home the author gave me a peek of Frankie and Barrett and I was so over the moon, they are still my fave couple so far, I was so happy to see them.

I fell to rcommend this new release and the whole series, better read it in order to fully appreciate it but all the titles work great as standalone too in my opinion.

The cover art by Cate Ashwood is well done and fitting the story and the other covers. I like it a lot.

Sawyer’s Ferry series #4

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
