    Pick up this story and have a happy Homecoming Day!

    Laura's life was perfect: she was marrying a man she loved and was pregnant with his child. She was finally going to part of a family again. Everything seemed to be going her way, when the rug was ripped out from under her. Jay Martin, her fiancé, died from bacterial meningitis. His family didn't seem to want her so now she was alone again except, this time, with a baby. The baby would be the family that she didn't really need anyone. When she thought about it, the kids that she taught; they could be her family too. That was why Laura was at the police station; her student JT Thomas called and asked her to wait with her until her mother could be there........
    When Officer Seth Kelley walked into the room that JT and Laura was sitting in he felt something he had not felt in a while. It was something he thought he would never feel again. Seth's wife had passed away while giving birth to his children. Seeing Laura, was he ready to move on and maybe try again with someone new? Could that someone be Laura? Actually, could he put the past behind him and start anew?.....
    Seth Kelley and Laura Watson were two people who had a lot in common. They had both had love and lost it just when it was in the first bloom of life. Homecoming Day is a heartwarming story of love and people's will to survive. I was caught up in Laura and Seth's lives and really wanted them to find a happily ever after. Holly Jacobs has spread a lot of holiday spirit in this story, and let us catch up with a lot of old friends in the Kelley family. Make everyday a homecoming day by picking up a copy of this story.

    a heart-wrenching tale

    In Erie, Pennsylvania, shortly before their marriage, police officer Jay Martin dies from meningitis; only his mother's refusal to unplug the machine keeps him alive. His fiancée art teacher Laura Watson is left alone to grieve her loss while also dealing with her pregnancy as Jay's mother raging in anger over her wanting to pull the plug orders her our of their lives.

    Laura meets Police Lieutenant Seth Keller when they work together to help one of her students JT Thomas stay out of trouble. Seth coaches Laura when she gives birth to her son. He believes he loves her and her baby, but knows she has issues similar to his. He has not moved on passed the deaths of his wife and their baby due to problems with her pregnancy.

    This second chance at love is a heart-wrenching tale as Laura and Seth struggle to move beyond their respective losses of loved ones, compounded by not all of them deceased. Besides losing her fiancé she also lost his parents; while he lost his family including an estrangement with his parents and much of the Keller brood. Readers will relish this entertaining return to Erie.
