The Perfect Homecoming by Julia London: Back to Pine River to watch the sun set one last time.
Emma Tyler and Cooper Jessup are two very mixed up people who are dealing with many things, including a dying man. Emma has some problems and many of which she brings on herself. Cooper is one of those really good guys who just needs to be let in because he will only push but so far.
In the true tradition of Pine River and Ms. London The Perfect Homecoming will bring you to some pretty high highs and some pretty low lows. A glass of wine and a box of tissues would not be amiss while you indulge. While this is a happy ending it is always sad to see the great friendship of the ladies ending with no more books coming.
As always Ms. London has created characters so real that you think you could call them up and have a conversation with them. Definitely curl up with this novel for a emotional roller coaster.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia London delivers another stand-alone, heartwarming love story in her Pine River series.
Emma Tyler’s cool exterior and penchant for sarcasm keep most people from getting too close…and an unusual compulsion drives her to steal from the few men who do. When her trophy-collecting habit goes too far, she quits her ritzy event-planning job in Los Angeles and runs away to Pine River, hiding with her estranged half-sisters at Homecoming Ranch and caring for Leo Kendrick, her ailing friend.
Thrillseekers Anonymous founder Cooper Jessup has his hands full with work and his brother’s looming prison release date. But when a client asks him to track down Emma Tyler to retrieve a stolen memento, Cooper can’t turn down the money…or the chance to see the beautiful Emma again.
When Cooper comes to collect the item, Emma refuses to admit the horrible truth. This handsome man may see right through her steely veneer, but can he get close enough to show her how love and honesty can heal a troubled heart?
