About COME HOME WITH ME
It may be a dot in the Pacific Northwest, but tiny Blue Moon Harbor always has room for love . . .
Miranda Gabriel has finally hit rock-bottom. As a high-school drop-out, she fled Blue Moon Harbor and her shattered family life, and chased after love in all the wrong places. But now, as a single mom, her priority is her two-year-old daughter. Her only choice is to swallow her pride and return to the island she’s always hated. At least between working and studying, she’ll be too busy for romance—especially when the prospect is a nice guy, exactly the kind she knows she doesn’t deserve . . .
The island veterinarian, Luke Chandler is a widower raising four-year-old twin boys. In high school, he found bad girl Miranda fascinating—and though life has changed them both, he’s still intrigued. Luke has known true love, and something about Miranda makes him long to experience it again. Yet he’s wary of opening himself, and his boys, to hurt. But his heart may not give him a choice. And together, maybe he and Miranda can give each other the courage to believe in themselves, and to embrace a promising new future…
Sometimes going home brings you the thing you were looking for the entire time. Such is the case with Miranda Gabriel in Come Home With Me, the latest in Susan Fox’s Destiny Island series. While Miranda resisted coming home feeling it made her a failure, she discovered that strength is the ability to rely on other people when you need them.
Luke Chandler, on the other hand, always had people in his corner supporting him. On the surface he and Miranda couldn’t be more opposite. Until you actually got to know both of them and realized they were fighting the same demons, only in different ways. Fox excels at pushing them both outside their comfort zone to be the people they could be and the couple they were meant to.
Readers of the series will enjoy the updates and resolution, to the Enchantment storyline. While it is a minor part, it helps wrap things up. I actually expected it to become a bigger part between Luke and Miranda. I was glad Fox opted to go in a different direction as she brought out hero and heroine together.
I always look forward to the next book in this series as soon as I finish reading and this was no exception. Fox easily draws me into this island world and I can’t wait to visit.
