A Chesapeake island homecoming—and a life-changing discovery 

When Ryan Hastings first came to Teaberry Island, he was a troubled teen on his last chance. He’s returning as a renowned scientist, checking in on his widowed foster mother. But one thing hasn’t changed—Ryan’s feelings for the girl next door whom he loved…and left. Mellie Anderson has a son now, and a good life that Ryan believes he’s still too damaged to share. But he knows he can help young Alfie, who’s getting picked on at his new school. 

Mellie is grateful her gifted son is getting extra support, and torn about where it’s coming from. Ryan has no idea he’s Alfie’s father. No matter how valid her reasons were, could Ryan ever understand why she didn’t tell him? But in this close-knit community, friendship and forgiveness are always near at hand, and forever love might be waiting just next door.

The Forever Farmhouse is the first book in the new Hometown Brothers series... and it most certainly has me excited to see more from this series! 

We all know that we aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover... and this one is really a prime example as to why. Looking at the book, it looks like merely a lighthearted romance. While the romance part may certainly be true, this story actually takes on a variety of much more difficult topics like an unplanned pregnancy, child abuse, depression and loss of a spouse. All of these topics were covered with grace, so while I certainly didn't feel like anything was sugarcoated, I definitely felt like it was kept from being too dark. While I certainly might not have agreed with the decisions of several of the characters, it added to the genuine feeling of the story that I really enjoyed. 

If you enjoy a good small town romance with a lot of heart, this is certainly one to check out. I enjoyed this first book very much, and find myself anxiously awaiting to see what happens in book number two!
