Better than the First!
on April 29, 2013
I was taught that if you didn't have something good to say about someone or something, don't say anything at all. Well, I have lots of good things to say about Coming Home, the second book in The Wakefield Romance Series.
The second book in a series is usually a `filler' and not as good as the first. Not in this case. I really liked the first book, Two Weeks with a Seal, but I loved the second one! Although a little slow in places, I think that this is maybe the first time I've liked a second book more than the first.
Not only did I get to know more about Rhea and Chad, the main characters, I got to meet new characters. My favourites were Brad and Garth. In fact, I loved them and I really hope that they get their own book (That's a hint Therese.) Of course, I couldn't forget Kendal, Harlan, Rosa and Reno who feature in Coming Home as well. I would love to have them all as my friends. Dana is the perfect supportive mother.
All of these wonderful characters help to form a tight bond of love and friendship and the story would not be as good without them. But Wakefield is not all light and love. There are few bad apples in town, one in particular. There is conflict and tension and I was continually kept guessing about what would happen next. Then to add to the mix, there is the continuing danger that Chad has to face on his missions as a Seal.
I love a book that makes me feel a variety of emotions and Coming Home certainly delivered. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. I don't know how many books Therese Marguerite Hewitt plans to write in this series, but I'm certainly looking forward to the next one and, hopefully, more.
