A Sweethaven Homecoming

Author: Courtney Walsh
Publisher: Guideposts/Summerside Press
August 2012
ISBN: 978-0-8249-3171-1
Genre: Women’s fiction

Meghan Rhodes has left backwoods Sweethaven, Michigan, for good. She is a famous country singer, in Nashville, Tennessee, and she doesn’t have time for anything that reminds her of her old life—not even her ex-husband, Nick, or her two twins.

At least not until Nick sues her for full-custody of the twins—at a time when Meghan had a big record deal releasing. About the same time, incriminating photographs surfaced, which threatened to ruin Meghan’s reputation—especially since she sang a hymn or two at every concert.

Meghan is furious—and so she returns to the one place she swears she’d never go. Sweethaven. But will she find forgiveness, hope, and love? Will she find the family she always wanted but who no longer want her? Or will pride force her back to Nashville, back to her life as a country music star?

A SWEETHAVEN HOMECOMING is book two in Ms. Walsh’s The Sweethaven Circle series. Readers will want to read book one, A Sweethaven Summer first to find out what happened previously as these books really don’t stand alone. The story is continued. It is a story of four childhood friends who vacationed in Sweethaven, but as years went by drifted apart. Secrets and hurts keep them separated. Meghan is not really a character I could identify easily with—she is judgmental and unforgiving, thanks to her upbringing. However, I felt her hurts, and wanted her to find peace with her past and with herself.

If you are looking for a great women’s fiction series to read, then pick up The Sweethaven Circle series. The third book A Sweethaven Christmas is out – and next in my to-read pile.  Great series so far. $13:99. 320 pages.
