Hometown Girl based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book was very touching. As someone who grew up in a small town, I can understand the intimacy shared between the locals. Everyone either knows everyone, or knows someone who does. Margaret Watson does a great job of portraying the small town atmosphere without being condescending in the end. The main character, Claire, begins with a large amount of angst when she returns from the big city to her orphaned nephew, Nick. She butts head with Tucker, the football coach over parenting issues with Nick. Besides the love story that develops between Claire and Tucker, there is mystery surrounding her sister's death. Overall, I felt this novel was well-written. Claire showed some shortcomings I wasn't comfortable with, but they were minor and not hard to ignore, given the entirety of the story. I'd say that if you want a heart-warming romance with a hint of mystery, this is a good pick.
