Review:: The Homecoming by Robyn Carr
Author: Robyn Carr
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA
At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been.
Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he's been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father—and the people of Thunder Point—he's become a better, humbler version of his former self.
Winning over his father isn't the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?
I'm a huge Robyn Carr fan and I'll read whatever she writes. I've loved this new Thunder Point series. The town is a perfect distraction. I'm also a big fan of second chance stories. This one was a win win for me.
Seth and Iris were both very relatable. I think we all have had our lives turn out different that we'd originally thought. I'm sure most of us have had that crush that went on far too long and ate up much of our hearts and thoughts. Seth and Iris just worked. I was rooting for them the whole time.
One reason I love Robyn Carr stories is that she brings in so many other character's they aren't minor either. They add depth to the story and give us a bigger picture. Thunder Point is a character. Not just a setting. Which is why I keep coming back.
