Rani Martin, Simon and Anna's only daughter, is a beautiful and spirited young woman living deep in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. She has plenty of ideas about the man she'll marry someday, but none of them could have prepared her for the return of Matthew Jackson.

Matthew left Cades Cove as a child after his father's death. Now he's come back to build a new life for himself, and it's his dearest wish that Rani be a part of that life. But the people of the Cove won't let him forget the sins of his father, and Matthew can't forget the darkness of his own past.

Is there a place for Matthew in the Cove? And can the light of Rani's love overcome his pain?

    Liked it!  Rani¿s best friend who recently got married is movin

    Liked it! 

    Rani’s best friend who recently got married is moving away and she feels so alone. The same day her friend leaves a man named Matthew comes to the cove and Rani does not trust him at first. But soon she gets to know him and finds herself falling for him but Matthew has things in his past that threaten to ruin everything. Can Rani and Matthew overcome these issues to find happiness with each other?




         This is book two in the series and I quite enjoyed it. 




    What I liked: I liked how Rani is the daughter of the couple from the first book and how this storyline flowed. I really liked Rani and her spunk. She said what she thought even though it got her in trouble at times yet made for a fun read. I also liked how the time flowed in this book and both Rani and Matt had to do some growing up. It made it more believable and interesting. 




    What I did not like: Rani in the beginning of the book was quite upset with a logging company and had some words with Matthew about it and then it was not really talked about again. I thought there was going to be more of a story-line there. Not a big deal just something I noticed.




         Over all I liked this book and thought it was even better then the first. I am now really looking forward to the third and final book of the series due out later this year. You don’t have to read the first book of the series before you pick this one up but I would recommend it as learning the back story will make this book more enjoyable.

    My Review:

    The setting of this book takes place in the Smoky Mountains in the early 1900's. The story centers around a young woman by the name of Rani Martin that thinks everything in her life is complete. Complete that is until her good friend Josie moves away with her family to find work because there is no work at Cades Cove. Rani had been contemplating finding a husband some day when Josie finally explained to her that sometimes in life you have to settle because the one you want may never come along.

    Meanwhile Matthew returns to the Cove trying to locate his old family farm trying to find a tree that his father planted for his mother on their wedding day. He was going there to fulfill a death bed request by his mother. Upon finding it he hears alot of screaming and fussing in a female voice. So he just stands by and listens to what appears to be Rani, I believe fussing at God about her problems. He is captivated by this beautiful creature.



    Seeing Rani makes living in this town so much easier......



    **Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Harvest House Publishers.

    Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite Matthew Jackson

    Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

    Matthew Jackson has been working for years to have enough money to come back home to Cades Cove in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. His mom moved their family away after his father was killed. With his mom and sister now gone, and after several years of doing things Matthew is not proud of, he is finally ready to settle down in his hometown. But will those still living in Cades Cove still accept him back, especially with the circumstances around why the family left. A lot of Rani’s friends had left Cades Cove, but she had no plans to leave, because she loved her small community. Rani's life changed when Matthew Jackson shows up at their door, and her family seems excited to see this man she has never met before. That is until he walks up on her while she is out walking earlier in the day.

    I really enjoyed this wonderful and heartwarming story set in the Cades Cove area of the Smoky Mountains. I have been to that area many times and enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the area as well as the people and their lifestyle. The characters are well-developed and they steal their way into the hearts of readers. My heart went out to Matthew and the difficulties he was having because of the past. And I appreciate the way Ms. Robbins shows God’s love and forgiveness in the lives of the characters. And she does it in a pleasant and heartwarming way. If you are looking for a light, enjoyable read, I highly recommend "Mountain Homecoming" for your enjoyment. You will not be disappointed!

    Another excellent book by Sandra Robbins, and the second one in

    Another excellent book by Sandra Robbins, and the second one in this story. This one picks up where we left off in "Angel In The Cove", which I've read and loved. Now you can read this as a stand alone, but why would you??
    It is now 20 years later and Anna and Simon Martin now have Granny living with them. Their son Steven is off to college, and their daughter Rani is very passionate about her Smokey Mountains.
    Matthew Jackson also returns, all grown up, and wanting the peace that the mountains offer. He just hopes this small community will not blame him for his father's sins.
    Josie, Rani's best friend is preparing to leave the Cove with her husband and young baby. We find Rani there helping with a tearful goodbye, but we also find out a deep long lasting secret. This secret is one that will change Rani's life forever.
    Return with us to life in the Mountains where life is one beautiful sight after another, and where life is hard and primitive. Things we take for granted are not always available there.
    I do hope there is more to come in this amazing series, I personally loved this book! I love the way these people follow God, and are there for each other.

    I received this book from First Wild Card Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
