Coming Home by B.L. Mooney
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?
Rebecca knows one truth, she's adopted. She has a mother and father who loves her but she can't stop wondering who and why she was given away. Rebecca, a graphic designer, is given a job opportunity in Dallas, which happens to be where she is from. This is a chance to try and find her birth parents and find out what plaques her dreams.
Once Rebecca arrives she meets an array of different people, who all seem to have different quirks, secrets, and motives. Someone knows her secret and is trying to force her to leave. It first starts as harmless acts but they soon escalate to dangerous. Will Rebecca stay and figure out what's going on, or will she run to the only home she remembers?
I really enjoyed this book. The writing and the dialog flowed well. The characters were well developed and all of them seemed "shady" at one point or another. I was suspicious of everyone. I enjoyed the romantic aspect between Rebecca and Ryan and found myself really pulling for them to work things out. There was drama, suspense, twists, and turns.
B.L. Mooney started writing when the voices and storylines in her head ran out of room. They were getting too cramped and neither B.L. nor the characters could take it anymore, so she did the only thing she could do—she made room. She always knew she wanted to write, but vowed to make time for it later. Now that she’s made time for writing, most everything else falls to the wayside. That seems to suit the characters that keep popping up just fine. B.L. lives in the Midwest and her other talents include in-demand cookies, a very dry sense of humor, and stealth eavesdropping. Some mannerisms, attitudes, or twists come from random sentences picked up while passing by strangers. So speak up the next time you have something to gossip about. You never know, it may just end up on the pages of the next book you read.
