“A Sweethaven Homecoming” by Courtney Walsh- book review
Second book in the SweetHaven series, Homecoming, is a book about coming home. For the characters in the book coming home have various meanings- some good and some not so good.
Country recording artist, Meghan, comes home to try to gain custody of her twins after some bad publicity threatens to derail her career.
Campbell returns to Sweethaven following the death of her mother. She is greeted by her mother’s friends who offer comfort.
Lila comes home with divorce papers in her purse, just sure that this is the only course of action left for her.
Adele, Meghan’s mother, tries to make it all right for everyone, including her daughter, grandchildren and her former son-in-law.
Sweethaven holds memories for each of the characters and in their own way they explore the meaning of home, family and forgiveness. The author shares her love of scrapbooking and how it can be a tool to help some get through grief. The girls are getting together to compile of scrap book of their summer, and this simple gathering will be life changing for them all.
This chic lit novel is a great summer read, easy to follow, not too much mystery but with a little bit or romance thrown in. The characters interact with each other and others in the community that is typical of a small town where everyone knows everyone else and their business.
