I knew I was going to love the Stonehill series probablyabout the time Kara Martinson downed a shot of tequila and admitted she feltold at her own art gallery opening. Thatfirst image of Kara in a red sari-inspired dress, surrounded by "fancy-pants"types as she tells the tattooed bartender she'd been doing tequila shots sincelong before his daddy dropped his pants is not only beautifully composedforeshadowing but perfectly captures the spirit of not only Kara but of this entire homecoming story. Thesurprise guest at Kara's gallery opening? Her own twenty-seven years missingbabby daddy. And in with Harry Canton walks decades of betrayal, heartache, andlies.
What I love most about Road was how real it is. Secondchances at love come at Kara from many directions: her high school crush, herparents, her son, now a father himself. But just because life presents secondchances doesn't mean going down that road will be easy. Marci Boudreaux'sbelly-laugh humor, complex characters, and realistic conflicts give readers areason to go home again. Tough, terrifying, and full of twists and turns, TheRoad Leads Back allows us to see how the hardest days of our lives can lead usdirectly to the happiest.
