Description

Sometimes the only place left to go is home.

Kara Martinson always thought her high school crush was out of her league, but they did share one night she’s never been able to forget. Nearly three decades after being disowned by her parents and forced to raise her son on her own, Kara’s made it—her art is being toasted at a gallery opening. Even better, she and her son are finally on stable ground. Until Mr. One-Night Stand himself crashes her party.
 
Harry Canton always knew Kara would make it as an artist. Almost thirty years after high school, he still considers her the one that got away. But the surprise reunion doesn’t quite go to plan when Harry discovers he left her with more than just memories when he went away to college. Desperate to connect with the family he never knew existed, Harry convinces his son to move cross country for a fresh start with his father—and pleads with Kara to come home, too.

Kara hasn’t stepped foot in their hometown since the day she was sent away. But her son desperately wants the father he never had and denying him that may cost her everything. Can love heal old heartaches so Harry and Kara can have a second chance at the future they were robbed of so long ago? Or will the pain of the past be too much to face?

    HEA stories are not my favorite but this one sucked me in by being about a young woman ejected from her home and family by an unexpected pregnancy bu being given succor in a modified commune in Oregon. Is gets complicated from there but is entertaining with it.

    The first half of the book was good. But towards the end Kara became this “why me boo,hoo why me “ weak woman . Pull up your big girl pants and get over it. It’s not all about you you have a kid, think of him. Like I said it was a ok book

    What a super pack of emotions in this book. I don’t think there was one human emotion that wasn’t felt and dealt with. Kara was one broken but tough human being and some readers will say she is the heroine in this book. She is a heroine, but the one I think is truly the hero was Harry. He was the nucleus, the rock and her grounding man. I loved this book!!!

    I loved this story! Not many romances have older main characters. The characters were fully fleshed out and very believable. I would recommend this book as a great read.

    This story captivated me in the first few pages and kept me there until the end! All of the main characters are so fully developed as unique individuals and the family emotions are wonderfully described. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read Phil’s story next. Thank you Marci Bolden.

    Ok people. You HAVE to read this book. And have some tissues close by. And a dose of self-righteous anger. Because this book will bring all those emotions out. At the end though, it brings out the smiles and happiness because who wouldn’t love a story about two high school kids who reconnect after 27 years to bring their family together. Add in a cute little girl with downs and it couldn’t have more perfect.

    I really enjoyed this book! The characters were great, even the parents who really were selfish and short sighted. Strongly recommend reading!
