Review

READERS' FAVORITE BOOK AWARD FINALIST 2014 and one of 10 books selected for submission to Wind Dancer Films!
Publishers Weekly says:
"The author delivers engaging characters and a charming spin on an old plot in this mildly spicy contemporary romance.  Hardworking Chicago advertising exec Jake Randall travels to his tiny hometown -- Faythe, Wisconsin, which he'd left years earlier after escaping his abusive father -- to help his elderly Aunt Tillie repair her aging Victorian house.  Upon arriving, he finds Tillie has died and a familiar face is now living in her house: divorcee Cory Richards, a high school friend.  Matchmaker Tillie has one more surprise in store:  Jake and Cory both are inheriting half of her home, but to earn it, the two must live there together for three months.  Soon, Jake's feeling much more than friendship for the sweet nurse, but can he dare hope she feels the same?  For her part, Cory's been kicked in the face by love as an adult -- but believed Jake to be out of her league since they were high school students.  The author deftly builds a believable plot and significant emotions as Jake and Cory struggle to define what their past means -- and what their future may be.  While the prodigal son returning to his small town and garnering the local girl is a long-used and familiar strategy in contemporary romances, this author proves to be a master of rising above the usual stereotypical romance elements, creating a believable plot and characters readers root for from page one.  Enjoyable and fresh."Publishers Weekly

From the Author

Dear Reader:

I love happily-ever-after stories, whether in books or on the big screen screen. But, I tend to like ones that have more going on than the romance, so my stories do tend to be filled with secondary characters who have their own story lines. In the writing world, we say "there are lots of subplots." I hope you enjoy them as much as I had writing them.

When I was first working with the idea for HOMECOMING, I decided I wanted to have "lots of cats." I cut out cat pictures from magazines and I ended up with nine distinct cats with very different personalities. It was fun creating them as characters! I'm also kind of a nut for cat pictures, and I'd love it if you'd email me yours: mail (at) janetwellington (dot) com.  I just might use them in a future Facebook post or in my annual FREE cat calendar--you'll find it on my author Facebook page JanetWellingtonBooks--immediate download in trade for your email address!

I also love wounded heroes and when I was working with Jake's character, I decided to give him a secret.  Cory is my Cinderella character--one I've always wanted to write. I love love love the idea of taking someone who is plain (or thinks she's plain) and transforming her. Who wouldn't want that? I hope Cory's reunion with Jake and a second chance at love will stir some good memories for you.

The setting for HOMECOMING is a part of Wisconsin where my family went camping every summer. We loved spending time in Door County, Peninsula State Park, and especially loved it when the sour cherries were in season.
  • Peninsula State Park is a 3,776-acre Wisconsin state park with eight miles of Green Bay shoreline in Door County. Peninsula is the third largest state park in Wisconsin, and is visited by an estimated 1 million visitors annually. (source: Wikipedia)
I love to hear from readers, so feel free to send me a note. And if you'd like to be on my once-in-a-while contact list, please email me.... mail (at) janetwellington (dot) com, on my website janetwellington.com or sign up at my author Facebook page:  JanetWellingtonBooks.

That's all for now,
Janet Wellington
