No woman ever really forgets her first love. Callie Sorenson is no exception. Hers was tall, tanned, and - as her older brother’s best friend - completely off limits.

Danny McCutcheon.

It’s a name that Callie hasn’t spoken in years, even if the man to whom it belongs has never really been all that far from her thoughts. Or her heart. But now a twist of fate will bring her back to the childhood home she left behind years ago, and to the hometown boy for whom she secretly longed.

When her mother takes a bad fall and breaks her hip, Callie leaves the bright lights of New York City to fly back west and help with the rehabilitation. It’s a tense homecoming due to a long time estrangement between mother and daughter, and it drives Callie to confront both a painful personal loss and her unanswered questions about the father who abandoned her when she was just a child.

It also brings her face to face with Danny again, and Callie quickly realizes that old feelings die hard.

But for Danny, it’s new feelings that are a problem. Callie is not the young girl he remembers but a woman now, and a very desirable one. They both have reasons to fight the growing attraction between them, but the temptation may just prove to be too much to resist, despite some very real risk to their hearts. The past casts a long shadow over the future, though, and Callie will have to overcome it or else face losing the one man who means the most to her.

Callie Sorenson has a chip on her shoulder a mile wide – with good reason – tragedy seems to stalk her life. At times I found the “chip,” that is to say, her attitude, exasperating…and yet. She has grit, she makes her own way without excuses, and she’s there when needed. Danny McCutcheon would love to help ease her angst, but reality tells him to get involved will only mean getting hurt.  Christine Feldman did a wonderful job bringing a tough storyline and hard life lessons together to make a heartwarming book that is well worth the read. Very well done.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I agreed to this review, but I can certainly say, I enjoyed the reading of this story.   Ms Feldman wrote a delightful little romance tale about a young woman with daddy in daddy left home, ne'er to return when Callie was age 4.   Now she is 24 years old and thinks she may be a chip off the old block with commitment issues and a sense of running away.  She needs to confront her father and understand why he left them so many years ago.     Callie's character was well developed and well written.   Issues with her mother had caused her to run and explore the world on her own terms four years earlier.   Now her mother's accidental fall from a ladder and her broken hip brought Callie home and face to face with a lot of buried emotions. Danny McCutcheon was portrayed as the boy next door, turned into a hunk of a man.  He was as attracted to Callie as she was to him, but they both knew, she wouldn't stay in their home town after her mother's recovery.   This was a very well written clean romance.   Both main characters had issues to overcome, conflicts to resolve before they could allow themselves the desire of their hearts.   From start to finish there was growth in both main characters. And I found this to be a lovely romance with a satisfying conclusion! Thank you Christine Feldman.   You held my attention and I loved your characters as well as the sweet romance that developed!

The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review 2 1/2 stars Callie left home years ago; her father left when she was young and she thought that living the nomad lifestyle would make her understand why he left. She is living in New York City when she gets a call from her deceased brothers’ best friend Danny, the man she loved and never had. Her mother fell off a ladder and needs Callie to come home. Callie realizes she still has feelings for Danny, yet she doesn't want to hurt him with her restless nature. Danny now sees Callie as a woman and these new feelings he has for her, could leave him with a broken heart. Will the two of them take a chance or will fear keep them apart? This is technically a good book, there is nothing wrong with the story and the editing is done wonderfully. Callie is strong and independent, yet she still has this lost little girl inside her. Danny is understanding, good looking and responsible, he is the boy every mom wants their daughter to date. The plot was interesting, girl comes home to help mom and she sees the boy she has always secretly loved. Boy sees girl differently sparks fly and the rest is history. However, as good as all those things were, I just wasn't feeling this book. I can't really put my finger on why, maybe it was because the book was slow or I didn't feel the heat between the couple. If you like your romance books to be pretty much drama free, with a few kisses here and there and a slow build up, then Coming Home is worth a try.

Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Kim COMING HOME was more than I bargained for. I was looking for a romantic story. I wasn't prepared for the classic mother/daughter friction and I wasn't prepared to cry. COMING HOME was a story that I could completely relate to. I mean let's face it, most daughters are like their mothers, and neither one EVER sees it. That's the case of me and my mom and my daughter and myself. It's only when you fall that you realize your mother was only trying to protect you from pain and heartache. There isn't any question that Callie and Libby, her mother, love each other. You can tell they do. For Callie however, the one thing she can't get over is why her mother took away every momento of her father and never talks about him. Libby is a strong woman, in more ways than one. She sees all and knows all. After her husband left the family, she took care of two kids alone, only to lose one at the hands of a drunk driver. Though it broke her heart, she allowed Callie to bypass college and leave home, to spread her wings, always hoping she would return. Danny McCutcheon isn't a man without his own share of pain and heartache. When he was eight years old, he came to live with the only family he has, his grandfather. Danny has no memory of his father and probably wishes he had no memory of his mother. Because of life, Danny has learned not to take chances. Upon learning that her mother has fallen and broken her hip, Callie rushes home to take care of her. Knowing that once her mother is better, she will be back to her nomadic life. What Callie doesn't expect, is that coming home this time will put her heart at risk and that she'll make new discoveries about herself and others. I believe this book is classified as a contemporary romance. It is heavy on the sweet romance side. But this book is more than just a romance book. This is a story of a mom trying to protect her daughter but finally realizing that she needs to let her go and stand on her own. Understanding that if her daughter falls, she will to be there to pick her up. It’s also a story of realizing that through the eyes of a child, things are not always as they seem. Though I hate to use the term coming of age, through the course of this book, the characters make self discoveries about themselves and those around them. One will realize that you can’t punish yourself for something cast out in the universe to happen. There are times you need to stop playing it safe and take a risk. One will realize that if you just be honest with yourself and those you love, things will look different in the light of day. And one will realize that coming face to face with your past just might lead you to where you truly belong and the place you’ve been looking for your whole life. And realizing that what you’ve been looking for has always been right there in front of you. Source: Author

After looking at the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads I was very excited to read this book. The blurb intrigued me as well. I was a little disappointed once I read the book though. I don’t understand how it has five 5 star reviews on Amazon. It was an okay book, but not great. The story flowed, but very slowly. I had to stop reading it a couple of times and get back into the story. The editing in this book was amazing. I didn’t notice any grammatical errors or spelling mistakes, which is rare. I just wish the author would’ve picked up the pace and maybe had some drama throw some spice into the story. I like my stories fast-paced and spicy. If you like your books slow coming and mild, this book is for you. The author did a good job on character development and writing.

This was a very enjoyable quick read. I found myself getting caught up in the mystery of why Callie had commitment issues ( both with her Mom and childhood crush) the author's use of humor made me chuckle out loud several times.. Definitely a sweet and quick read.

I really enjoyed this as an afternoon lazy beach read.  I think the overall story is sweet with some funny moments scattered throughout, and the characters felt like people I'd meet in real life.  Callie especially was a heroine I could root for.
