Almost Home was a heartwarming contemporary with stunning characters and a sexy hero.
The heroine Steffie was kind and generous with a bit of spunkiness who really cared for her friends and family. It was neat that she had her own ice cream shop. I liked that she moved on in her life and did not decide to be miserable after Wade dumped her when she was young. Wade was smart as well as caring. His strength showed through when it came to family. He was also protective.
These two worked well together. I liked the romance because it wasn't not instant it slowly ramped up as Wade as Steffie got together. They had chemistry and really grew to care and love each other and got to know each other to. The romantic scenes were done well, they were sweet and exciting. I liked the warmth and how they both were close to their friends and families. The bit of mystery and supernatural in this book was interesting and fun. Austin Wade's son was cute and a good character to and I liked how Wade took care of him. I also enjoyed how Stefie came to love them both. The different types and flavors of ice cream and how Steffie made them up was interesting and they sounded really tasty. Two scoops for this one!
When she was young, Steffie Wyler always knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life: 1. Make ice cream. 2. Marry the coolest boy in town. 3. Live happily ever after. These days, Steffie is the proud owner of One Scoop or Two, a wildly popular ice cream parlor. But the cool guy left town right after high school, before they could scratch the surface of their mutual attraction to see what, if anything, lay beneath. Steffie's made a great life for herself in St. Dennis, but true love has never come knocking.
Wade MacGregor left for college in Texas and remained there to start a successful business with his best friend, Robin Kennedy, but he's always felt something was missing. Then life throws him a curveball: A third partner has robbed the company blind, and Robin has died-but not before entrusting Wade with a precious secret. Now back in St. Dennis, Wade's determined to do whatever it takes to protect his friend's legacy-and to figure out, once and for all, if the sparks that fly whenever he's with Steffie are just temporary fireworks or the lights in the window leading him home.
