Finding His Way Home

GIVEAWAY

ROSS, MIA
FINDING HIS WAY HOME

Book 3-Barrett's Mill: In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a family legacy leads to love.

Prodigal son Scott Barrett is back home in Barrett's Mill with plans to atone for his past mistakes and restore his future. But the quiet Virginia village feels like a different place since his return. The old cottage and chapel are crying out for repair--much like Scott himself. Luckily, sensitive artist Jenna Reed offers to help. Jenna sees Scott without judgment, though she reveals little about her own troubled past. As they work together to renovate the chapel, Scott begins to earn her trust, and soon he's envisioning life with the beautiful Jenna. Can the love of a good woman finally make him whole?

My Review:

True confession: I read this book in one sitting even though I couldn't afford to lose the sleep. Sigh. I just couldn't bring myself to put it aside and start counting sheep! I love the Barrett family, love this wonderful community Ross has created. Lots of southern charm and brotherly shenanigans. But there's sorrow too, and anguish over pasts that can't be undone. Ross weaves a bright thread of hope through that darkness and brings resolution in the form of redemption and forgiveness. That's what  made this an unforgettable read for me.

I really loved Jenna. Thinking she's right up there on my favourite heroines list. Direct and upbeat and just a little bit fragile, the residual fallout from a rough past. She was full of surprises. I couldn't believe some of the things she said, the courageous ways she faced off with Scott. Sometimes I held my breath to see how he would take it and then let it out in a whoosh of relief when he reluctantly admire her straightforwardness. The give and take between these two was a delight to read. Ross delivers an amazing love story liberally laced with realism. Awesome read.

Oh, and though this is the fourth book in the Barrett's Mill series, you don't need to have read the other books. If you have though, you'll enjoy catching up with Scott's brothers and his extended family. Love the feeling of coming home when I read one of Mia Ross's novels.
