I won this book in a GoodReads.com give away. This book was an interesting read. We open up with Maddie coming back to her childhood home after the death of a family friend. On the ride to funeral, Maddie hears her dead twin sister's voice calling her name.

When Maddie (Madisen) finds out that Aunt Ceci has dies, she must return to the small town she fled 10 years earlier to attend her funeral. When she arrives she is picked up by Zac Redondo, an old friend who has carried a torch for her for years. We find out that when she was 10 years old, her twin sister, Angeline, drowned and her parents blamed her for the accident. She is unable to return to San Antonio until she tries to find out what happened. With help from Zac and his family, she begins to uncover the truth behind Angeline’s death. Along the way, Angeline herself appears to Maddie in her dreams and guides her to find some answers. Maddie’s and Zac’s search reawakens old feelings and there are some pretty heated scenes. Zac is truly an understanding man and refuses to "make love" to Maddie while she is distraught. He wants to make sure she really wants to have a relationship. There are some pretty heavy issues in this book such as mental illness and sexual abuse but the romance lightens it up some so it is not a completely dark read. A romance, hot at times, with an intense stormy mystery, this book is well worth a read. I am waiting for the second in this series. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

What a great book! While the romance in this book is stunning, what really kept me turning the pages was the mystery. I will definitely look for more from this author.

Wow! I'm so happy I got the chance to read this wonderful story. I admit, at first I wasn't completely sure I was going to enjoy it, but in the end I really did. I love how the plot was written. The main elements are mystery and romance. They fit perfectly together, since none overshadows the other. So, if you want to read a romantic story or simply just a crime story, don't worry. You can get it all! But I warn you now, the story revolves around the murder of a ten year old and her sister that is trying to uncover the truth behing what happened ten years ago. What I'm trying to say is that there might be themes you are uncomfortable with, such as SPOILER rape and child abuse END SPOILER. If you think you can handle that, then this book is definitely worth a try. As for the characters, I really liked most of them. Sure, there were moments where I wanted to shout at them out of frustration but other than that, I enjoyed their unique personalities. Maddie has been through a lot, since her sister's murder years ago. She has huge trust issues (not that I blame her) and that's why it's hard for her to form a long lasting love relationship. With Zac back in the picture, it's even harder for her to give in to what they both truly want. There were times, where I though she reacted to a situation without thinking it over first and that then lead to unnecessary drama. But other than that I found her to be quite pleasant and even funny. She and Zac were really great for each other. I loved Zac. He never gave up on her and you could really tell how much she meant to him and his family. He and his family did screw up by not telling her such an important 'secret' but at the end her friend helped her understand why they did what they did. She had an amazing support sistem behind her that many could only wish for. I'm so glad that at the end her sister and Maddie got their peace and that Maddie could finally move on and in a sense also start living again. The Art of Going Home is a wonderful read I can only recommend! Safety-gang: Safe but with triggers.
