Two years ago, Christine Kincaid found her sister, Andrea, in the arms of her fiancé, James Buchanan. This after Andrea confessed to having an affair with James and being pregnant with his child. Distraught and wanting to escape the pain of James’ betrayal, Christine fled her home, just outside of Washington D.C., to London, England, her birthplace.

As startling details of her parents’ tragic romance come to light, Christine now suspects she was deceived by Andrea and is determined to return home and win James back. Only James seems to hate her now. She’d known that it wouldn’t be easy. She’d hurt him deeply by leaving. But she believed that somehow he’d forgive her and they would finally be together. Why did he have such a bad opinion of her? And what was she going to do to make him see that he was wrong?

Review: First, let me say that this was a difficult review to write, just because I was trying to avoid revealing too much – the dreaded ‘spoiler’!

Coming Home is the love story of Christine Kincaid and James Buchanan. It’s also a complex story laced with lies, deceit, and misunderstandings. We learn that Christine’s family is pretty dysfunctional and has been at the root of all the difficulties she has experienced, including those she had in her relationship with James. I have to admit that on several occasions I really wanted to kick Christine because I thought she was being incredibly stubborn. And, watch out for the twists that will have your shaking your head!

Even though some might consider Coming Home formulaic, it is a well written book and I enjoyed reading it. I think you will, too.

Quote: “Let’s face it, James, we are both to blame here. We didn’t trust in our love for each other. Instead of talking to each other keeping the lines of communication open, we were silent. That won’t happen again.” from page 129
