If you don’t know what you want, would you recognize it if you found it?



Miguel Ramirez is the definition of pochos; a half-breed-white-washed Mexican–American who doesn’t speak Spanish (also unapologetically bisexual). Three years ago he arrived in Skagit a broken man having barely managed to escape an abusive relationship. Slowly, he’s rebuilt his life. He’s tried hard to discard his deepest desires and be happy with what life has doled out. Family feels out of his grasp, no one really wants to keep a stray after all. Except, maybe, a red-haired stranger with a galaxy of freckles covering his face who seems to encompass everything Miguel’s learned to avoid.


Nate Richardson; focused, solid, reliable, career-minded, Federal Agent. No time for relationships outside of work. Then he runs into Miguel with his crazy green eyes, rakish smile and outrageous sense of humor. Nate starts thinking about Miguel as more than just another guy. Nate was sure he didn’t care about sex and didn’t believe in love…he’d never met Miguel Ramirez before.


Things quickly heat up between Nate and Miguel. Crime is heating up in Skagit as well. Nate is sidelined when the case he is working on reaches a frustrating standstill. In the meantime, unnerving incidents transpire, some literally on Nate’s doorstep. Will outside forces—or their own baggage—keep Miguel and Nate apart? What exactly is family, and can Miguel and Nate make one of their own?
Jenn Review
4 Stars
I have really enjoyed this series and Elle Keaton’s characters, they are a bit broken but still great and Miguel and Nate are fantastic additions to this group. They are two very different men from different backgrounds and seem unlikely at first, but they find something special together and I loved their journey.
Miguel has spent the last few years trying to rebuild his life after getting away from his abusive ex Justin. He has a good job working with Buck in his shop and is trying to get his stuff together. He thinks he’s escaped his ex, but he starts to notice things, and wonders if he’s just adjusting to a new home and life or if he’s actually got a stalker. Nate made the choice to move away from his disapproving father and to Washington and work for the FBI. He loves his job and lives a pretty simple life. He’s a bit awkward in social situations but he’s a sweetheart of a guy. A chance meeting at a wedding brings these two together and though neither of them expected anything special, that’s what they find. But, it’s not an easy journey, Miguel is still afraid of his ex stalking him and Nate is new to any kind of dating. Nate might feel like an anchor for him, but that’s scary in it’s own way.
I really enjoyed the way this story flowed, getting to know these guys and how their relationship developed. Neither of these guys have much positive relationship experience and when it seems like they may be able to make it work, the worst happens and threatens them both. I really enjoyed the last bit of this book, as it all came together and I really got to see these two finally get the happy that they both so deserved. River Home shows that real family isn’t always about being related by blood, that it can also be those that we find along the way to love. Miguel and Nate balance each other in a way that just made my heart happy and I felt like their ending was just absolutely perfect for them. Another great read from Elle Keaton, I totally fell in love with these guys and am already looking forward to what is next!

About The Author

Author, photographer, rare Pacific Northwest Native, Elle grew up in Seattle, WA., with the Cascade Mountain range to the east and Olympics to the west. Less than two hours northwest lie the majestic San Juan Islands. To the northeast is the Methow Valley and the scrub deserts of Eastern Washington. Geography ripe with material.



A graduate of Western Washington University, Elle has a BS in biology which taught her to be tenacious. The closest she has come to biology since then is having two kids. Like an experiment or something. She’s lived in four states (none of which were gaseous), London England, and Hong Kong; always knows what time it is, and has no problem finding parking even in the most difficult places. Cannot balance a checking account.



Elle’s series Accidental Roots, mostly set in the Skagit Valley of Western Washington, will make its debut spring of 2017. Storm Season is tender, sometimes irreverent, full of nosy neighbors and help when the hero didn’t think he needed it. Writing has always been a passion but not something she was able to take seriously until recently. Now her head is full of ideas and not enough time in each day.
