Called Home

Called Home: Two Hearts AnswerGloria Schumann
Contemporary Romance

"My imagination borrows heavily on reality."




Emma is working hard to keep up her mother's farm and working to keep it.  There is no room in her life for another man who will leave her life as soon as she gets attached.  It's never worth it and she doesn't have the time.  David is coming home to his hometown after becoming a famous author and is looking to put down some roots.  What he doesn't expect is to see Emma, or to have such strong feelings for her.  When she is threatened David is there to help and try to solve the mystery before it's too late.  But will they be able to save their hearts as well?

My Opinion: This author seems to use an overabundance of "big words" and awkward semantics in this work.  It's not that it's used incorrectly, but when someone does this often enough, it's hard to read.  The plot is slow in the first half, but it picks up speed after that.  The mystery is actually pretty creepy, but I was not happy with the way the story resolves itself or rather doesn't resolve itself.  It didn't seem to make much sense.  David was a good character, but I felt like he never really got to act on his best characteristics which was a shame because I liked him.  Emma was someone I did not understand nor like.  I can see how others may like her though.  All in all, not my cup of tea, but I understand that there might be others who would enjoy this.

I received a free copy of this book for review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion were 100% my own.

  1. Doesn't really sound like my cup of tea either. I know what you mean about big words. Eva Ibbotson is the same way. Her books are always very intellectual, but I have loved every one of them (even if it takes me just a little bit longer to read them.)
