A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

The Last Way Home by Liz Johnson: Book Review

**I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

When Eli Ross left Prince Edward Island to join the NHL, he left a broken family behind. More than a decade later, he's broke and headed home to an uncertain welcome. He wants to make things right with the family he wronged, but his mom's business partner isn't making it easy. To top it off, the coaching job he's accepted turns out to be far more difficult than he anticipated.

For years, Violet Donaghy has put everything she had into making Eli's mom's ceramics shop a success, and she's not eager to forgive the man who hurt the family that's taken her in as one of their own. But when the kiln at the shop starts a fire that nearly destroys the studio, she'll need all the help she can get to save the business and their summer income.

Can these two strong-willed people come together to mend the broken pieces of the Ross family? Or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt them?

Return to Prince Edward Island for a romantic story of family, forgiveness, and the power of love.

The Last Way Home is book number two in the Prince Edward Island Shores series. While I think it would be okay as a standalone, I think readers will get the most out of it by reading the series in order. While the backstory is gone over in this one, I think you'll definitely have a better feel for the family dynamics from book one. 

As much as I enjoyed the first book in the series, I must say that I think I enjoyed this one even more. The chemistry between Violet and Eli was done so well, and I couldn't get enough. The kisses in this one were certainly swoon-worthy without a doubt. There was a bit of a mystery about each of their histories, with just enough revealed along the way to keep my intrigued and reading on. While the romance was, as I said, fantastic, there was a lot more going onto the story as well. I really enjoyed the messages of forgiveness and redemption. The families in this were done wonderfully, and really had a great sense of community as well. 

Liz Johnson is quickly becoming one that I'll watch out for. I cannot wait to see more from this series!
