Finding Home by Roxanne Snopek

Finding Home by Roxanne Snopek.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: September 25th 2014 by Montana Born Books.
Fourteen years after her abrupt departure, Samara Davis is back in Marietta, Montana. Now a widow, all she wants is to give her anxious four-year old daughter, Jade, a happy, stable home. Unfortunately, the heritage house she purchased is nowhere near ready for occupancy. And the man responsible for the delay is none other than high-school golden boy and love of her life Logan Stafford, available, interested and just as swoon-worthy as ever.

But this single mother has one priority. She’s all Jade has, and she’ll do anything, make any sacrifice, for her child’s future. And getting distracted by a long-lost boyfriend is not on the agenda.

Logan Stafford never forgot the lonely girl from the wrong side of the tracks who broke his heart. Not only is she as irresistible as ever, but her delightfully odd little girl has him wrapped around her finger in no time. Believing they’ve been given a second chance, Logan’s determined to pull out all the stops on the house to prove to them both that he’s a guy they can count on. But, despite how easy it is to love Logan, a second chance is still a gamble Samara can’t afford to take

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is a great story if you want a little light reading that is short and sweet. It has the man who has always loved a girl from high school and never forgot her. He gets a second chance at love and he runs full force to her! The man in this story is what every woman wants; someone who will always be there for you with all your baggage and who loves your child even if the child has special needs. I mean really who wouldn’t want that?!

Logan was the football player in high school that every girl wanted. Samara is the girl whom he wanted. Samara’s family moved a lot and just when things were perfect between them. Sam’s father up and moved them without letting her say so much as a goodbye.

Many years and one child and widowed woman later, Sam returns with her little girl, Jade to move in. It is a lovely small town where everyone knows everyone else. She chose a house that the kids from the high school that Logan works at, is renovating for school credit. The house isn’t ready and her furniture is coming soon anyway, Sam is always worrying over Jade, thinking she is the only one who can care for her and Sam keeps getting distracted by her feelings for Logan and she finds herself confused and overprotected and anxious. There is more than she can handle at one time. That’s where we find our Prince Logan to rescue her and help her out not because he can, but because he has always loved her and still loves her and wants to help her.

I loved the story. The story is easy to follow. The characters are real (with their entire baggage showing). There are mistakes made and apologies given. I love small towns and a tight knight community. This is where everyone is there for everyone else, always providing service when needed.

So, if you want a quick, sweet read; one with a Prince Charming, renovating an old home, small towns, special needs kids with a cute little mutt, being there for others, second chances, learning how to let others give you aide, and finding all is ok in the world, then this is the story for you!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Before she was a novelist, Roxanne was an aerobics instructor (fired for insufficient coordination), a cosmetics salesperson (lacked that go-for-the-throat sales attitude), a dog-trainer (they all died*), a tax consultant with H&R Block (yeah, that was before Quicken and TurboTax), taught dog and cat breed names (she's a font of useless information) and most recently, wrote content for an interactive romance/mystery video game (still can't master Windows 8.)

Now she explores all kinds of careers from the safety of her desk, through her characters. It's better for everyone that way.

*It was 15 years ago, people! It's not like they died because of her!
