ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Hometown Healing
Author: Jennifer Slattery
Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: August 1, 2019
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
She’s home again, but not for long…
Unless this cowboy recaptures her heart.
Returning home with a baby in tow, Paige Cordell’s determined her stay is only temporary. But to earn enough money to leave, she needs a job—and her only option is working at her first love’s dinner theater. With attraction once again unfurling between her and Jed Gilbertson, can the man who once broke her heart convince her to stay for good?
IN MY OPINION
There were several times in Hometown Healing I didn’t like Paige much. The cold shoulder and brush off she continues to give Jed had me feeling for the guy. Yet, the way Jennifer Slattery lays out Paige’s backstory had me changing my mind about her, and even rooting for her happily ever after, by the end of the book. The wall Paige has built around herself to protect her heart seems impenetrable but with Jed’s persistence and tenacity to reach his former best friend, cracks are formed.
While Paige had some issues, I loved the setting of this story. The dinner theater was a fun angle as I got to go along for the ride in what is involved in setting up an event venue like this. From the food to the décor to the script, I felt like I was right there in the decision making.
Hometown Healing is about tearing down walls and letting go of past hurts in order to built something stronger and long-lasting with the people who matter most. Add in a meddling mother and grandmother, and an adorable three-year-old, and you’ve got a sweet read with moments of fun mixed in with a truth-divulging message.
