Review: Coming Home by B.L. Mooney

Title: Coming Home 
Author: B.L. Mooney
Genre: Young Adult
Publication Date: April 3, 2013
Rebecca Shultz has always known she was adopted. She couldn’t have chosen better parents than the ones that chose her. They’ve always made her feel loved and she’s never wanted for anything—except knowing why she was given up in the first place. Until she finds those answers, Rebecca feels as though she’s stuck in her past.

In the hopes of finding those answers, she accepts a job hundreds of miles away from the only home she’s ever known. However, not everyone is happy about her arrival. Someone wants her to give up the search and go back to her small town.

What Rebecca didn’t expect to find was Ryan Thomas. No one understands the attractive ad executive the way Rebecca does. He would rather spend his free time playing baseball with the kids in the same group home where he once lived than spend it with anyone that wants to take him away from there. Rebecca understands that these kids deserve a chance. Will Ryan be able to convince her to take one with him?

With Ryan distracting Rebecca with feelings she’s never felt before, roadblocks popping up that keep her from the answers to her past, and someone desperately trying to get her to leave, will she give up before her questions are answered? Will she stay and fight to find the truth? Or will she find that she already has everything she ever needed and that home can be anywhere you want it to be?


3.5 stars!

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The only truth Rebecca knows is that she is adopted. She does not know the circumstances that involve her adoption or her birth parents. Although it bothers her adoptive mother, Rebecca is determined to find the people that gave her up so many years ago.  When she moves hours away from home for a job, she meets Ryan. They have so much more in common than either of them thought. Little did she know that on this journey, she would end up where she belonged all along. This story was filled of love, hope, and forgiveness.

Coming Home was a slow paced story, but quickly made up for it in the end. I thought I knew what was going to happen, and then all of a sudden, everything changes! I enjoyed the mystery to this story as well. Just when I thought I found the root of the problem, the author had me second-guessing myself. I love when that happens! I didn’t know which character I could trust. I felt betrayed by all of them! In the end, it was a sweet story with characters that tugged at your heart strings.

“I think I’ve always needed you. I just didn’t know you yet.”

Overall I found this to be an easy read that lovers of YA may enjoy. I liked that this story wasn’t your everyday YA read. There was tons of story and mystery to keep the reader intrigued.
