Tour & Giveaway: Love's Journey Home (Lincoln Love Stories) by Julie Coulter Bellon

Love's Journey Home (Lincoln Love Stories) by Julie Coulter Bellon.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: February 1st 2018 by Stone Hall Books.
Olivia Dalton has a reputation in the DA’s office---tough, thorough, and fierce when she’s closing a case. Those skills are essential in the courtroom, but not in the relationship department---until Mick Donovan crosses her path. Everyone thinks he’s a player, but when an unexpected situation arises, she glimpses an honorable man instead. Olivia is drawn to him, but he pushes her away, unable to shake the past that still haunts him.

Mick Donovan learned at a young age never to let anyone close because those you love never stay. Keeping people at arms-length has never been hard for him---until he meets Olivia Dalton. Mick is caught up in a case she’s prosecuting, and he can’t deny his attraction to her, but when she uncovers the past he’s kept carefully hidden, he’s sure she’ll turn away. Yet, even with all his secrets in the open, Olivia reaches out. Can he let his guard down long enough to let her in and take a chance on love?

Reviewed by Kelly.

I needed a box of kleenex to read this book! There is sadness, happiness, grieving, things that leave a mark on you, and moving forward in life.

I wasn't sure I wanted to read Mick's story. He was kind of a player. Yeah, he had his nice moments in the last book but still. Now that I have read the book and learned his story, I feel like I really must be shallow! I didn't believe his ability of being worthy of dating and having a future with. He really is a very very good guy!

Olivia needs to have her life grounded! She needs a life outside of court and her life as an attorney. Olivia knows how to get to the meat of a story and she figured out Mick's story quickly! She is also a good person. She saw something that my shallow brain didn't!

Then there is this guy who just won't let Olivia say no for dates! When he finally gets shut down, oh my gosh, I laughed good and hard!

Also, I thought I had figured how it was going to end! I was wrong about one important piece!!

If you like stories of foster homes, adoption, overcoming horrible things, learning to trust, wood working, teachers, attorneys, male egos, boys learning to love then this might be for you.
