Baby Come Home: My Review

Baby, Come Home (Southern Roads)

About the Book:
The hardheaded Armstrong brothers are determined to rebuild their tornado-ravaged hometown in the Georgia mountains. They’ve got the means, they’ve got the manpower…what they need are women! So they place an ad in a Northern newspaper and wait for the ladies to arrive…

Sensible yet sexy middle brother Kendall Armstrong penned that ad himself—but there’s just one woman he really wants to answer the call…

Civil engineer Amy Bradshaw—Kendall’s ex-fiancĂ©e—fled Sweetness years ago, taking a precious souvenir with her. She’s back now…but only on a professional level. Really. Little does she know that old flames
always burn the hottest…

My Comments:
This was one of those books I kept expecting to like, kept expecting to turn the corner and engage me, but which never did.  It's a romance, so the final resolution was never really in doubt, the journey is the purpose of the book and in this case, the journey never really grabbed me.  Maybe the environment just seemed too unreal, and I guess I never really connected with the characters.  In any case, I won't say it is a horrible book, just that it wasn't the book for me.  Grade:  C.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.
