Books In This Series

This series has been a fave with its Kenya setting & diverse and engaging characters. I’ve loved how we started with one generation and followed it down through their children as well. The Marine’s Return feels like the last book and, if indeed it is, it makes the perfect sendoff.

Chad and Lexi are compelling characters, their stories drawing you in and making it easy to root for them. A secondary romance playing out in the background adds further dimension to an already layered plot.

Bottom line: If you haven’t read this series yet, you simply must. Start at the beginning for full effect, though each book can be read as a standalone. The Marine’s Return engages readers from start to finish, and Chad and Lexi’s multi-dimensional stories tug at the heart. There is some mild profanity scattered throughout but it’s few and far between.

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Prism Book Tours. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / love it!

KissingBook Level: 3 / may forget to breathe
