I thought that this book was a little PG rated. It was interesting but then it failed at the end. I felt like it was a children's book. Who doesn't let the people know what happen at the end. An end chapter was not stated because I guess they needed to go into the next book which is not about these characters from the start that it gives you at the end of this one. I will not read the next one becasue I don't want to know what happened to the other characters.

Bluestone is a sweet little lake town that the economy is killing. Efforts by the townspeople to revitalize their home provides the backdrop to the start of this promising series.

In this first book, several of the townspeople are introduced. I enjoyed them, loved some of them, and I'm looking forward to watching as their journeys continue through the coming books. This holds true for the main couple in Bluestone Homecoming as well. Leo and Trinity are a great couple, and I loved watching them fall for each other. I thought the interactions with Leo's son, Max, and the efforts to see to his needs and make sure he was okay with this new relationship were nicely done and true to a boy that age.

My only real complaint was that the story of this couple ended before I wanted it to. So, I'm crossing my fingers that I get to see Leo and Trinity progress in the background throughout the series. If you like small towns peopled with characters you feel like you could be friends with, then this is a book you'll want to pick up.

There were some really sweet elements to this book, and I loved those! It does need some severe editing. Some sentences just weren't complete, and even though I read a lot, I did not know where the author was going with that particular sentence! In other instances, sometimes a word was exactly the opposite of what made sense, like "his" instead of "hers", and other minor stuff like that.

Mostly I was not looking for a story with so much LUST! I just needed to skip parts of this book. I totally prefer CLEAN wholesome reading. I have a great imagination, and just a well written scene of a couple walking down a hallway, is enough to cover those parts of a plot line - I get it!

The author is a good writer; I just didn't like the lusty scenes. And, they were abundant, needed to do a lot of skip-reading.

Here are my reactions to this book:
1. leave out the lust
2. put more effort into dealing with the warm/heart-stirring parts of the story (this would've made this book wonderful for me)
3. editing - there's a lot of proofreading and correcting that needs to be done

I doubt I will read other stuff by this author. because I am guessing that the items above will be part of other works.. I guess I really should know better than to judge a book by it's cover, I thought it looked like a clean, chick lit light reading kind of book...

I found the story interesting, but I was bothered by the characterization of the pastor's family as unforgiving and the pastor's daughter who fell into bed with the male lead even though she had gotten in trouble with that before. Too much sex for a gentle romantic read. The time frame confused me, too. How long had Leo been widowed? How long had Max been with his grandparents? The chapters were clearly drawn and I wanted things to go well for them. I understand it is one in a series, but that was too obvious in the number of unresolved relationships floating through the text.

I first need to start to say that I really enjoyed this novel. But, I have to admit that it really hit a nerve with me. I sometimes think about what I would want to my husband and boys to do if I ever passed away. I struggle with the idea of my husband moving on and my kids loving another "mother". So, I definitely had a visceral response to this novel. So needless to say I was completely entrenched in this novel and finished it in a few hours time.

Fredrick wrote this story beautifully and captured grief in its most selfish and raw form. Leo could not see past his own grief to help his son, Max, cope with the loss of his mother. She drew the picture of how grief can totally encapsulate somebody until they are ready to let go and move on. The story is quickly paced, allowing you to really get drawn into the characters. I cannot wait to see where this series with that us. This is a 4 star read and a series that you will want to continue reading.

I really enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to the others in the series. The progress of Leo's and Trinity's relationship, the resolution of the tension between Leo and his son Max, the admonitions from Leo's mom about how he was goofing up....all of it was believable, which scores major points with me. A big turn-off for me while reading is suddenly thinking "Huh??? No way!!", and no part of this story elicited that. I agree with one reviewer that the story of Leo and Trinity ended before I was ready for it to end...I wanted to see how they handled her parents, how his parents and Max reacted, how the wedding went. Minor points, however, that do not take away from the story overall.
