Finally Home left me speechless. The phrase “God is writing my love story” is what I felt while reading this book. I could relate to Melanie’s character in so many ways, not being able to let go of the past, just wanting to do what’s right and be the best for your child were some of the things that I could relate to. There were a lot of lessons taught and I loved that the plot was so realistic.
This story will definitely fill you with emotion and passion. Jack’s character had me upset quite a few times but he is really a good guy. Finally Home definitely did a great job at portraying the consequences of moving too fast in a relationship and telling lies. This is the first book that I have read by Helen Scott Taylor and I definitely look forward to reading more.
There are two main characters, Melanie and Jack. Melanie is fairly new to town and is employed by Jack. Melanie has a lot that she is dealing with but no one would ever know by the way she is able to cover it up. Jack on the other hand is planning on starting a new life with his soon to be wife but things do not go as planned. Melanie and Jack surely learn some great life lessons fast.
As manager of the charming Greyfriar House Hotel, Melanie Marshall loves her job and spending time with her young son. But she can never forget what she ran away from: her late husband's crimes and her own terrible guilt. Though lonely, Melanie can't afford to let another man into her life.
But when her boss, gorgeous hotel owner Jack Summers, returns from his supposed wedding without a ring or a wife, Melanie discovers there's more to him than she ever thought. For one, the ex-soccer star is her son's idol. But the closer she gets to Jack, the more she pulls away. She can't share her past. Ever.
For too long, Jack's protected his scarred heart by letting gold-digging women make him think love didn't matter. But a sweet single mother and a soccer-crazy little boy change everything. He knows Melanie has secrets. Secrets she'll have to share if he's to help her realize she's finally home.
