Jules Coronado has been away from her hometown for almost a decade but when an intruder breaks in to her childhood home, she finds herself coming back. Changes evidently took place in her small town, including her childhood best friend’s younger brother, Kip – now tall, slightly scruffed, all grown up and caught climbing into their garden wall.
Kip Villamor has a mission and despite Jules’ doubts, they team up: going on fieldtrips, tackling unsuspecting men, and trespassing offices to dig up dirt. But Jules has secrets of her own, one that might be exposed – unless she keeps her walls up. But climbing walls are Kip’s forte, remember?
Will her secrets keep her on his side, or will it force her to disappear again?

The Hometown Hazard by Dawn Lanuza is a fun read. 🙂 I enjoyed Kip’s and Jules’s adventure as they tried to unravel the mystery in their parents’ joint business.
Kip is everything Jules is not. He is brash, daring, spontaneous. And did I mention he’s such a looker, too? ^_^ Kip doesn’t have plans, he loves winging it. Jules, on the other hand, can’t live without it. The two clearly are at opposite poles when it comes to so many things and yet their chemistry sizzles.
But more than that, I loved reading about their adventure. I could literally feel the pound of Jules’s heart because of what Kip’s been doing. He literally is The Hometown Hazard (Love the title, btw, and the cover of the book) and Jules was right to worry about him from the get go.
With The Hometown Hazard, it’s the adventure, the journey of the two characters that you’ll love. How they got to know each other and how they are together. The twist of the story as well, albeit heartbreaking.
Five stars for The Hometown Hazard. I’m definitely going to read more of Dawn Lanuza’s works. ❤
