Book Review: The Homecoming by Robyn Carr

The Homecoming by Robyn Carr

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?
The Homecoming was more enjoyable that the previous book of this series, The Promise. I love these kind of stories about couples being friends and in love for a long time before getting together. Iris and Seth make a great couple, and their love story was pretty easy and quick. I do feel like some issues, like Seth's father, were left unsolved...it wasn't really explained why he was so grumpy. I think he was very misunderstood. But maybe on another book the author will explain more...

Overall, The Homecoming was a quick enjoyable romance with the perfect happy ending. Seth and Iris aren't my favorite couple of this series but they were cute and ready to be together forever and they left me feeling happy for them.

  4. I have a few Robyn Carr books in my to-read stacks. I'm not sure if this one is in there or not (which is clearly a sign that I buy too many books.) I'll have to go dig those books out and see if this one is in there. It sounds like a good book. Thanks for the review.
