Hometown Family by Mia Ross

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Book, Hometown Family by Mia Ross. I really enjoyed this book. I don't read a lot of the Love Inspired anymore but this was sent to me. I like the story concept, the prodigal son is always a good idea. Almost everyone can identify with one brother or the other. Unfortunately for this prodigal son, his father died before he could make things right. The nice thing about our own prodigal son story is that God is always there to greet us and welcome us back. He is so forgiving and loving. There is nothing we can do that He won't forgive us for, unless it is unbelief in His precious Son.

Matthew Sawyer is the prodigal son. He hates the farm and small town living so he takes off for the big city. Now he returns home for his father's funeral, broken hearted he was unable to say good bye or tell him how much he loved him. The terms of the will forces Matt to stay and help his family bring in the harvest. While working on machinery he finds hidden documents showing the farm is almost bankrupt. Here is his chance to leave and get out from under it, but can he do that to his siblings?

Caty McKenzie is the Sawyer's lawyer, she comes home for the funeral and to help the family. Caty has just lost her job at a big agency is not sure what she wants to do now. She returns to the home of her late grandparents and decides to fix it up, after all it's the only home she has ever really known. Caty is drawn to Matt but doesn't want to be added to his list of conquests. Their relationship is like a rollercoaster ride. Can she survive?

Matt finds that running the farm and trying to save it is a challenge he sort of enjoys. Caty plays a big part of that and the city no longer pulls him. Both of the character come with a lot of baggage, can they overlook that find a life together. A real struggle of forgiveness and trust. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry. I know you will like the book. You can find more about Mia's books at God bless you all.
