(42)Already Home by Susan Mallery

Already Home is a novel about about family and home.

Jenna has returned home to the suburbs of Austin after having her heart and soul crushed by her ex-husband, Aaron. In her desperation for normalcy, the chef hastily opens up a retail cooking store. She has the full support of her adoring parents and the sharp skill of her Manager, Violet. Jenna knows she will be okay.

But the "normalcy" she craves is thrown aside when her birth parents show up on her doorstep. Serenity & Tom are eager to get to know the daughter they gave up for adoption when they were teens. Jenna has her reservations, but does let her guard down and welcomes her family into her life. Did she make the right move or is she only going to get hurt again?

I am sorry to say that Already Home did not really leave a mark on me. The story was a bit predictable, but Jenna, Violet, & Beth were characters I liked. Serenity, not so much. Overall the story just fell flat for me. Maybe it is because I just came off of a GREAT BOOK HIGH (trademark pending - haha) or maybe the writing really is just flat. Why don't you read it & let me know.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
