Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Coming Home (Baytown Boys, #1) by Maryann Jordan
The Baytown Boys Mysteries
Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.
Mitch Evans left his career as an FBI agent after his father retired as the Baytown Police Chief. Returning home to take up the mantle, he was glad to be back with his family and the Baytown boys. The bonus? Reuniting with his childhood friend and teenage crush.
Victoria Bradford came back to Baytown to run the Sea Glass Inn after her grandmother’s death. A simpler life was what she yearned for. When the new Police Chief showed up on her doorstep, her heart skipped a beat as old memories came rushing back.
When one of Tori’s guests died from poisoning, Mitch was determined to stay objective while solving the murder. Then the evidence pointed to Tori as being the intended victim and another attempt was made on her life.
Mitch, desperate to find the killer before he strikes at Tori again, calls upon the Baytown Boys to assist, as he vows to protect her.

The Baytown Boys series is another branch off from the Saints Protection Series. We meet Mitch in those books and this book is centered around his character.
Mitch has gone back home to a job he never thought he would take in a town he couldn't wait to leave. Never in a million years did he think he would be back. Returning to take over the Sheriff’s Department Mitch has left the FBI and entered an entire different playing field. Heading down to the local diner, Mitch thinks the woman he can't take his eyes off of looks familiar but he can't place her. Something is familiar but he just can't pin it – she came falling through the door and immediately fled – he didn't get a good look but it cannot be ... can it?
Tori has come back to run her Grandmother's Inn. She loved coming here in the summer and spending her days in the sun. She also met the love of her life here. Seeing him sitting in the diner was a shock and exactly why she bolted. Why is he here and what in the world is she going to do.
Tori gets thrust into a situation she can't control. A threat on her life brings Mitch full force busting up his feelings and he will do everything in his power to keep her safe and find out who is threatening her.
There are numerous secondary characters in this release as we will get more from each. I really enjoyed this read and enjoyed hearing off and on about the Saints men. Things are about to heat up in Baytown ladies! Get your read on!
Thank you Maryann for the ARC. It's always a good read! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
