Book Review-Coming Home-Holly Kerr

Tuesday, June 17, 2014


What a heart warming book this turned out to be! When Brenna Ebans comes home after being away for more years then she can count she is scared. But having just found her husband with her legal assistant she just wants to hide and maybe start over. Brenna is not sure how her three sisters are going to react! Cat the youngest and the one who Brenna always fought with lives in the family home with her dogs and cats-and the ghost of their Mom who died when they were young. Her Dad had left the five (yes there is another one) with their Mom years before-never to return. It was Maggie, the oldest, who was left to care for all the girls. That they were all left emotionally scared in one form or another goes without saying.

Things get off to a rather bad start but actually I can almost see it all happening because certain people forgot to tell other certain people what was now happening! Being a small town gossip is prevalent and the girls have been creating gossip most of their lives si nothing new there.

It isn't until the end that you see how all the sisters (minus one) come together as family should!

This is definitely a 5 Star book if ever I've read one--I was left with a good, warm and fuzzy feeling as I read the last words.

About the Book:


Loving your sisters is easy. Liking them is the hard part.

Brenna Ebans always wanted more than what Hill n’Valley could give her, so it seemed a simple decision to follow her black-sheep sister Dory’s footsteps and leave Hill n’Valley in her rearview, hoping to locate their missing father. Leaving her sisters and her first love Seamus was harder than she thought, but she’s made a life for herself in Vancouver, started her career at a prestigious law firm, and has found the man of her dreams. But when she finds her husband Toby in a compromising position at work, she loses both her love and her job, and has nowhere to go but home.

Youngest sister Cat has remained in Hill n’Valley, leaving a string of broken hearts—and ex-husbands—in her wake. She’s happy living in the family home, with the ghost of their dead mother to keep her company during the day, and her latest conquest—Brenna’s old boyfriend, Seamus—to keep her warm at night. And she’s less than thrilled to hear about Brenna’s return.

But when tragedy strikes, it brings their father back to Hill n’Valley, and the sisters will have a lot of issues to resolve…

Sometimes people leave our life and we think it is a tragedy, and it turns out, it is the start of a beautiful new beginning. And I love cats and dogs... all animals, really!
