About the Story

Brooke Madison Bowers has found her soul mate, married, had a child, and lost that soul-mate.  Her husband and best friend was killed while serving in Iraq.  “You get one soul mate and I had mine.”  She has no intention of having another relationship and risking the heartache of loss again.  She’s moved back home, living on the family farm with her mother and brother.  Going back to school and starting a bakery business is as far as she will go to “start living again.”  Surrounded by her supportive family and friends, she’s determined to build a new life, and she’s equally determined never to fall in love again.

Jesse Enright is a fourth generation attorney who relocates to Brooke’s hometown, partly to repair the damage his errant father has done.  When Brooke decides to update her will, she turns to Jesse.  Jesse is very attracted to Brooke, but knows she’s not ready to seriously date and he thinks she’s worth waiting for.  What will happen?

About the Author

Hometown Girl is book four in a series, but you can read it as a stand-alone.

My Take

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  It was a hard-to-put-down romance with a sense of fun and warmth.  I love reading about small towns and family life.  Main characters who have experience pain and yet still appreciate the world around them and have a hopeful attitude.  Mariah Stewart is an artist – painting a picture with her words.  She lets you “see” the story from her extensive and capable descriptions.  Characters that you feel as if you know and can picture in your mind.  Characters who have flaws – just like real people do.
