Plot:   Leah Marino hasn’t been on a date in two years. After discovering the man she loved had manipulated and deceived her, she refuses to even entertain the idea of a relationship. Instead, she focuses her attention on taking care of her family, a role she’s assumed since the death of her mother and the one place she knows her kindness won't be taken advantage of again.

When a nostalgic trip back to her childhood home results in a chance encounter with Danny DeLuca, a smart-mouthed mechanic who’s as attractive as he is mysterious, Leah's carefully cultivated walls begin to crumble. She finds herself unexpectedly drawn to Danny, despite his unreliable behavior and mixed signals. 

But Danny has a secret...

One that could shake Leah's already precarious foundation and bring her world crashing down around her. Suddenly, she's faced with an incredibly difficult decision--is she willing to risk everything for the chance at finding the love she's always wanted? Or are some obstacles just too big for the heart to overcome?

MY REVIEW:

Coming Home is a very sweet romance that depicts two very different individuals who are given a rough set of cards.

Leah, is still reeling from a heartbreaking betrayal and the loss of her mother. She basically mothers her younger brother while contributing to him and her father but things are still hard for her.

Danny, on the other hand, is a mysterious mechanic facing the harsher reality of the consequences of his actions stemming from one drunken night at the bar.

When he meets Leah at his grandmother’s while she is revisiting her childhood home sparks fly and the two feel their lives forever change.

But with Danny’s secret in the way and which could ultimately shift and destroy their relationship altogether. How will things all work out? What could his secret be? And will Leah stand by Danny in the end?

So, my verdict?: A very nice introduction for me into the world of Priscilla Glenn although it was more of just an okay read for me.

I do, however, believe that all of you hopeless romantics will fall in love with this book so seriously don't mind me. I mainly deducted from this story for the slow story pacing when I really wanted it to move a little faster.

Anyways, with that said, I still hope to read more in the future from this author and will perhaps backtrack and read her older works. :)
