Review: The Homecoming by Robyn Carr

Goodreads:  At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been. 

Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he's been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father—and the people of Thunder Point—he's become a better, humbler version of his former self. 

Winning over his father isn't the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?

Kritters Thoughts:  A part of a series that I have come to love and I anticipate every new episode in this fun town in Oregon that is just the perfection of small town.  Each book centers around a different person in the town - usually a new move in and this one centers around Seth who is moving back to this town where he grew up and made some mistakes as a kid and will now be the new deputy and have to show the town and some certain people that he is a different man.

Seth and Iris had an interesting story that was a little different from the others because it took the reader into a little history of the town through their friendship and high school days.  Being a cop's wife, I thought this book would be right down my alley and I appreciated having a police officer as a central character, but this one just didn't live up to the ones before.  The thing I love from Robyn Carr is the sweeping love story and for some reason this one didn't quite sweep me off my feet.  BUT if you have been reading this series, I would still read this one because you may need some of the back story for a future book.

Although this book isn't my favorite in the series, it won't keep me from watching and waiting for the next one - The Wish (coming in February 2015!).  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Ebook 2014 Challenge: 47 out of 100
