The Last Way Home #ourgoodlifebooklist

 A story you will not want to put down!

About the book:

When Eli Ross left Prince Edward Island to join the NHL, he left a broken family behind. More than a decade later, he's broke and headed home to an uncertain welcome. He wants to make things right with the family he wronged, but his mom's business partner isn't making it easy. To top it off, the coaching job he's accepted turns out to be far more difficult than he anticipated.

For years, Violet Donaghy has put everything she had into making Eli's mom's ceramics shop a success, and she's not eager to forgive the man who hurt the family that's taken her in as one of their own. But when the kiln at the shop starts a fire that nearly destroys the studio, she'll need all the help she can get to save the business and their summer income.

Can these two strong-willed people come together to mend the broken pieces of the Ross family? Or will the ghosts of the past continue to haunt them?

Return to Prince Edward Island for a romantic story of family, forgiveness, and the power of love.

My Take:

I have a weakness for stories that have a man as the main character, especially in a romantic novel!  Once I saw that Eli was an ex-hockey player I knew I was going to enjoy reading this book.  While I found the pacing rather slow, I did enjoy the character development and the emotional attachment that I felt while reading this book.  I did tear up a bit when Violet, the main love interest, describes Eli as her best friend.  I find that entirely sweet.  While I think that about my own husband, I know he considers other people to be his best friends.  It makes me sad to think that I don't really have a best friend, even in my own husband, which is probably a childish thing.  Even though this is book 2 in a series,  I didn't have a problem keeping track of the characters and their backstories.  I receive a review copy from Revell Reads but this didn't influence what I reviewed.
