  4. ARC REVIEW I really enjoy this series, I love small town romance and for the most part these are second chance at love stories Each character has a past that has jaded them and it creates a very believable and likeable characters for the exception of Clay from Finding Hope I still don t like him Maddy needed a place to start over after her disastrous marriage and divorce and Nugget California was the perfect place She convinced her brother into buying the old dilapidated Lumber Baron and turn it [...]

  5. I got this book free from Firstreads This is my honest review.This was such a fun and diverse read It was part romance, part mystery and part history It took place in the fictional town of Nugget, California, which is based on the present day place where the Donner Party got stranded in huge snow blizzards on their trek west in 1846 Fortunately, nobody eats anybody else in this story, but there is someone who is attacking people connected with an old Victorian mansion that is being refurbished i [...]

  6. An ARC of Going Home by Stacy Finz was generously provided to me via NetGalley in exchange of honest review.I enjoyed this book It s light, it s fluffy and if you like light romance, you certainly love this book To be honest I m not exactly in the mood for light romance, lately I m craving for dark ones and that s why I didn t really connect with the characters It s solely my fault, not the book I love Maddy s attitude She s focused and she s determined I find myself wanting to be like her So ye [...]

  7. I love a good small town romance and Stacy Finz s newest did not disappoint I liked that this isn t one of those small town impossibly full of boutiques and fancy stores Nugget is struggling to survive and beginning to figure out that they need to do something different to keep going While both Maddy and Rhys are both interesting characters who make rational decisions but for the most part this reads like a fiction To me this wasn t a problem as I really enjoyed getting to know the characters a [...]

  10. It started out okay but then it involved way to many people and what was going on with them I think the couple was lost in all this and the other stories took away from them in general For the two main characters I enjoyed them but the side stepping of one another got a little old I hope the next book in the series is better and doesn t involve so many of the townspeople.

  13. Not my kind of book but finished it as I was curious as to what would happen with some of the characters I suspect the author recently learned how to spell ass and tried to use it as often as possible Sometimes twice on one page An easy summer read.

I read the 2nd book in this series first, and I really liked that book, with the exception of Clay getting on my nerves, so I already knew a bit about the main characters in this book, Maddy and Rhys, and I liked both of them in the 2nd book, so I wasn t surprised that they were very likable in their own book Maddy is going through a tough time in her life, and I felt for her, and I was rooting for her, and I think it s important that a reader wants the lead characters to succeed, and she really [...]
