Goodreads:  If home is where the heart is, Dogwood County may have just what Delaney Monroe needs

Newly retired from the Marine Corps, Delaney is looking for somewhere to start over. It’s not going to be easy, but when she finds the perfect place to open her dream motorcycle shop, she goes for it. What she doesn’t expect is an abandoned pit bull to come with the building. The shy pup is slow to trust, but Delaney is determined to win it over.

Detective Sean Callahan is smitten from the moment he sees Delaney, but her cool demeanor throws him off his game. When her late father's vintage motorcycle is stolen from Delaney's shop, Sean gets to turn up in his element: chasing the bad guy and showing his best self to a woman who’s gotten under his skin in a bad way.

Delaney isn't used to lasting relationships, but letting love in—both human and canine—helps her see that she may have found a place she belongs, forever.

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series and like many romance series this book has a self contained romance that centers around different characters than book one, BUT the character from book one are in this story and it is more enjoyable to experience those characters knowing what happened in book one.

With that said.  This book centers around a former marine Delaney as she is trying to find the next chapter of her life and Sean Callahan who is a Detective in this town in Virginia.  Delaney wants to set up a motorcycle shop and one of her prized possessions is a motorcycle that has been passed down from generation to generation and it is now hers and she wants to make a home with it.  Of course, as soon as she is settled, one night due to a series of events, this motorcycle is stolen and the detective steps in to solve the crime and he may put more effort than most because a beautiful lady needs his help!

I love romance books where the characters can build their story and that was the case in this book.  Nothing was instant or quick and there were some great mountains and valleys to the story.  I appreciated how the author put together the story.  And of course a little mystery with a stolen motorcycle was fun to follow within the bigger romance picture.

I can't wait to continue in this story and hope that there are more to come in this town in Virginia.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
