The Homecoming (Thunder Point #6) by Robyn Carr
In a small town, reputation is everything. In her latest novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr explores the burden placed on a young man returning home to face his mistakes—the first step in claiming the life he was meant to live ...
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 received a copy of The Homecoming from Netgalley and read it as soon as I got it. I have no will power where Robyn Carr’s books are concerned. Just like I often eat desert first as soon as I get one of her books I put all other books down and pick hers up. I almost read it in one sitting and I loved the story. Thunder Point continues to grow with new characters and the stories continue to be about people I would love to know.
The Homecoming is a story about second chances. For Seth Sileski it is a second chance in his hometown, with his father and most of all with Iris McKinley. Seth has changed and is back in Thunder Point taking Mac’s place as the deputy assigned to the station there. Thunder Point is not that large and Iris can’t help but run into Seth. The problem - Iris is still nursing a hurt from high school when they were best friends. Turns out Seth does not remember what happened and when he finds out he knows he has a long hard road before he is back in Iris’s good graces.
I loved both characters and look forward to seeing them again in future books. Having said that my only complaint about the series is how characters from previous books are not as visible. Just like I love Seth and Iris I love the character from previous books and would like to see more of them as the series progresses.
Harlequin published The Homecomingby Robyn Carr in 2014.
