Brooke Madison Bowers has returned home to St. Dennis, Maryland, following the death of her husband. In Hometown Girl by Mariah Stewart, Brooke is trying to rebuild her life, one small step at a time, going to school, caring for her son and starting up a cupcake business doesn’t leave much time for socializing. But even if she had time, Brooke isn’t so sure she is ready to open herself up to that kind of pain again.

 

Jesse Enright has come to St. Dennis to work in his families law office, following in his grandfather’s footsteps Jesse is trying to prove to everyone, but especially himself, that he is not like his embezzling attorney father. In addition to having to prove himself, Jesse finds himself attracted to Brooke, who has a reputation for going on single date with a guy then rejecting all further dates. But Jesse has a plan, he will be Brooke’s friend until she realizes what he could be, but the best laid plans of mice and men…

 

I really enjoyed Hometown Girl, Brooke is struggling to move on from the death of her husband two years previously, trying to find her path now that she is single. The community of St. Dennis is great, I loved the historical aspect to the people who live there (Jesse’s firm has been the attorneys for Brooke’s family for over 100 years). I did find it a little confusing at the beginning of the novel trying to keep everyone straight, but that is what happens when you jump into a well developed series on book four. :) Stewart’s descriptions of the area were fabulous! If you are looking for a heart-warming story of finding love again, Hometown Girl is a perfect fit for you.

Why Ratings?
It is true you can't judge a book by its cover, you also can't judge a book's graphic content by its cover. NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!

*I am rating a specific book by an author, not the author's style. If I am aware an author writes a specific way, I will let you know.
