Home in Hill Country
"No Ranger with a 60mm mortar could have done a better job of destroying his heart."
Kristen Cantrell never expected to find herself back in the town she spent her childhood in. But the new Home Free program is an offer she can't refuse - a chance to start over with her son. But the small town is full of rumors about her late father - rumors that she won't let rest. Nor will her latent feelings for her college flame, Ryan Gallagher seem to stay buried. Ryan hasn't been home since he joined the military. But after a serious injury and an urgent letter from his brothers, he has come to help the family out of a crisis. As they work together to re-make their lives, they just might decide to do it together.
My Opinion: This was a fun and enjoyable book. The characters, though it took a while to figure out their background, were fun and easy to relate to. There wasn't a lot of depth to them, but they interacted well. The romance was light but very sweet and fun. Kristen is a sweet character, though a little weak in the will department. Ryan was a good character with a strong character and good interactions. However, the book did not conclude well - not saying a bad plot, I just felt unfulfilled when it was done - like there should have been a few more chapters to really end it. Interesting book and definitely part of a series.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and review are 100% my own.
