A charming story of two people who are both searching for home, Finding His Way Home was really enjoyable. Scott has made some mistakes in the past, ending up in prison. Now that he’s out, he returns to his old hometown where he meets Jenna, a wandering artist who’s about ready to leave town. Abandoned by her mother as a teenager, Jenna has working through some issues in her own past. When they meet, Jenna’s outgoing personality draws the reclusive Scott back out into the world.
Setting: The story takes place in the small town of Barrett’s Mill, which is full of charm and endearing characters. I really enjoy the quirkiness of small towns and the everybody knows everybody feel. Scott can’t hide from his past because everybody knows about it.
Characters: The main characters, Scott and Jenna, are both wounded and easily relatable. You feel the pain of what they’ve been through and want better for them. The extended Barrett family plays a large role and some new characters are introduced, hopefully setting up more stories for this series.
Plot: The story moved along at a good pace and was very believable. I liked that the characters made mistakes and weren’t perfect, yet they were trying to change and do better. The restoration of the chapel and cottage that Scott inherited and Jenna’s help with the stained-glass window repair gave them a reason to spend more time together.
I really enjoyed my time spent with Scott and Jenna and would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys light, clean romance.
