Men In Uniform by Romeo Alexander
This is entertaining, sweet and sad. Simon is a cop in Higbee, the town everyone is flocking to to see the Northern Lights. He gets a complaint about a trespasser and go to deal with it. What he finds in one Elijah Trimble following the tracks the aliens left behind. Simon is a no nonsense, just the facts kind of guy, so he thinks that Elijah is mentally unstable. Back at the station he grills Elijah some more, then lets him go. Elijah tries to check into the motel, but it's booked, so he sits outs thinking, because he can't leave town, he's got no car, and he needs to be there when the alien ship with his parents on it shows up. On his way home from work, Simon sees Elijah sitting on the curb and pulls over. When he learns that Elijah has nowhere to go he invites him to his household. Simon is drawn to the strange young man, even though he thinks Elijah isn't all there. Elijah can't believe how nice the cop is being, not even his adoptive family are that nice to him, so he gets a little hero crush on him. When Simon finds out why Elijah's in town, he's heartbroken, and he decides to help him however he can. This series has some very heartbreaking characters, but Elijah is the saddest. This is a very intriguing story, a great addition to the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
