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)

4 1/2 STARS! A great ending to the From Kenya, With Love series! With the final book in this eye-opening, emotional series, Rula Sinara brings back a familiar character, all grown up and facing the fight of a lifetime. The story line was quickly entrenched in emotions and intrigue, and watching Chad and Lexi connect was rewarding. Getting to catch up with so many of the past members of the series was a wonderfully fitting ending. Absolutely loved it and sorry to see the series end! When Chad Corallis returns home to Africa he isn't the same young man with stars in his eyes that left. He's physically and emotionally wounded and facing the challenge of a lifetime. He honestly just wants to be left alone to wallow in despair, but when he gets word that his best friend's widow is in danger, it seems the fates are working against him. Nurse Lexi Galen met and married a wonderful man, but lost him before they even knew they were expecting a baby. She continued on with their plan to return to the African nation where he grew up and aid with much needed medical services. She's manning one of Hope's medical clinics, but as her due date quickly approaches, an over-zealous and dangerous group of poachers are encroaching on the safety of the clinic.

Romance in the heart of Kenya My rating is 3.5 stars Kenya is a country on my list of places I would love to visit. And I enjoyed being able to do that vicariously through The Marine’s Return. Though wounded, Chad was a strong character. He had been injured and was suffering from phantom pains in his arm that was no more yet still had a strong need to protect and to serve. Until he helped his dad secure the clinic in the bush, he had felt he had lost his purpose. I liked Chad with his vulnerability and fears and was so glad to see him heal. There was a mystery about missing medical supplies and a poacher who was known to be injured and lurking somewhere “out there”. While this played into the story, I would not consider this to be an action or mystery or suspense story. We knew by little bits and pieces about what was going on with the poacher which was done well. I found it interesting how few details were given about the characters. Other than build and hair color, very little was revealed. It allowed me to use my imagination to decide what they looked like and deemphasized the physical, which I thought was nice. The story was interesting but it did drag in parts. While it stands alone, there were hints along the way of other stories that came before it. And the Epilogue attempted to wrap up not only this story but others in the series as well. It did seem more like a list of what had happened, though, instead of a narrative. Overall, I am glad I read the book. Read with a Preview at I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review.

This is a book that everyone should read. Freedom is not free. A lot of our veterans go underappreciated. Chad is a veteran. He thinks that his life is over because he is injured. however fate has other plans for him. He feels responsible for his comrades, and he is trying to deal with his own issues. He is not that nice to his mom at the beginning of the book, and I loved how his dad was the Boss, and also a marine. It is ironic that his mom gets so much drama. because she is the reason he is sent to Lexi, in Africa. Once he realizes that Lexi is his best friend's widow, he knows he has to keep his promise to take care of her. He feels bad enough that he missed their wedding. When he gets there, Lexi is pregnant, attractive and stubborn. She is also in danger. Not only does she go into labor, but she goes into labor while Chad is with her. This was a fun book to read, and I liked there was a lot of family in it. Even though it is part of a series, I did not feel as though I was missing any information, and was a great stand alone for me. The chapters were a little long, but they were worth it. The ending was a great fit, and I enjoyed it. I am giving this book a 5/5. All opinions are my own.

The Marine’s Return is the sixth and final installment from Rula Sinara’s series, From Kenya, With Love. It is, also, my first introduction to both Miss Sinara’s writing and this series. I thought this book was pretty good. Chad and Lexi were great characters that I enjoyed getting to know. The story is one that was sweet, clean and heartwarming. It did tug at my heart at times, too. I am giving The Marine’s Return four and a half stars. I would love to go back and read the others in the From Kenya, With Love series, as well as, more by Rula Sinara in the future. Great read! I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
