A quirky town in need of a hero
Two hearts too stubborn to compromise
One last chance to save them all
Ex-Navy SEAL Caleb Hardy is desperate to atone for past mistakes by helping the old woman whose letters got him through the war. When he and his band of brothers drop into her sweet, dying Texas town, only one thing stands in the way of his redemption.
Superstition Springs native Havana Nixon is convinced letting a big developer into their tiny Texas oasis is the only way to save the town and she's not about to let a newcomer—no matter how gorgeous—derail her plans. Especially after her aunt tosses out one of her famous "love predictions" matching her with the most infuriating man on the planet. Good thing she brought along a fake fiance guaranteed to ensure the prediction won't come true.>/p>
Except Caleb isn't quite the stubborn jerk she thought he was. Not behind closed doors. Not as he's revealing his huge heart for her town. Not when he kisses her...
Welcome to Superstition Springs...town in progress

I love Kat Cantrell's books! I have read a lot of them and her SEAL characters are the best! This is a new series about a little town in Texas called Superstition Springs, which is desperately needing some help to survive. The funny thing is that the two people who want to save this city are seeking for atonement and are in opposite sites. Havana and Caleb have regretted some actions in the past (for several reasons) and are trying to be forgiven by saving this little town, while they do that they fight and fall in love. Caleb and his SEAL friends are strong, stubborn (and adorable!) and Havana and her family have a sweet and yet sad story. This is a wonderful first book and I bet the series is all this way. I loved the book and will look forward for the next ones.
A Lot Like Home is the first book in Kat Cantrell’s new series: SEALS of Superstition Springs. I love to read books about fictional towns and this one didn’t disappoint. I always enjoy reading a book, or maybe a series, about SEALs that need to find themselves after serving in war and what a way to bring them to Superstition Springs but via their pen pal, Serenity Force. Enter Havana and Caleb who are at opposite sides of the spectrum when dealing with the rebuilding of the town. Will they agree on a plan and find their happily ever after? A Lot Like Home is a sweet, clean read. I can’t wait to see where Ms. Cantrell takes the series. I received an advanced copy which I voluntarily read. This is my true and honest review.
Those dreaded words 'clean and wholesome romance'. Five former Navy SEALs come to the small town of Superstition Springs in search of the woman, Serenity Force, who wrote to them, five complete strangers, during their deployment. They find a small, down-at-heel town that has seen better days, at war with itself over a planned new development which would require razing the town. Leading the redevelopment plans? Former resident Havana Nixon, their penpal's eldest niece. The leader of the SEALs, Caleb Hardy, is instantly attracted to the prickly redhead, pity she has a fiancé. But as the sparks fly will Serenity's predictions for Caleb and Havana come true? I'm giving this the benefit of the doubt as the start of a new series, I didn't really understand Havana's angst or motivations, she seemed a bit emo TBH. Caleb was the stereotypical SEAL with a burden of gullt, a double burden as he holds himself responsible for a mission gone wrong AND the injuries his brother suffered. Overall, I could have done with less of Havana's personal angst (which made no sense) and more plot. Although there is no cliffhanger there is definitely a feeling of this book being part one. Clearly each of the five SEALs will find love with a local woman and settle down in the town, how long it will take to rebuild the town is anyone's guess. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
