I started reading the book in the morning, my plan was to read for an hour before starting my day. Once I started I was hooked, it's not the first time this was happening I read a novel by Helen Scott Taylor. I loved how the story unfolded, I didn't knew what would happen in the end until the last minute and there it was, over. I was left wanting more because the characters were so interesting that I wanted to know more about them.
The location was perfect, description made me feel like I was watching Jack and Melanie throughout the story. I loved the characters, Jack and Melanie both had different personalities and different perspectives. This gave much needed contrast to the story. Although Melanie was bit annoying at times with her coldness, it fit in the story because of what she had endured in past. On the other hand Jack who understood her and had faced his share of hardships was patient with her and helped her out in every way he could.
This was something I liked most about Jack, he wasn't a quitter. He was determined and he knew what he wanted, he wasn't impatient or immature either. He was a perfect balance of hot and cold. I loved the kids in the story, Melanie's son Ryan was so cute. Jack's family also played it's part in helping them without being so pushy, except his mother who was more than determined to do anything to see him getting married.
Overall, Finally Home is a lovable story of two people and two families who are making their way home. It's more about mending each others hearts than two hearts meeting and living happily ever after, it's a story of everyone coming together and accepting each other.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange of an honest review.
