She’s not home for keeps

Unless he proves first love is forever

Bluestone River is a minefield of memories for Mike Abbot—all involving Ruby Driscoll. Twenty years after scandal divided them, they’re both back in their hometown. Ruby’s visit is strictly temporary. But as she uses her trauma expertise to help his vulnerable son, Mike faces what his heart has always known. Ruby’s still his one and only. This time, can he convince her to stay?


Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW

4 out of 5 STARS


A Family for Jason is full of real life. Every one of us goes through trials throughout our lives. This book cuts deep and is real.

Ruby and Mike are in their late 30s and find themselves pushed back to Bluestone River, their home town. The story goes into the past with Ruby and Mike’s life as teenagers falling in love. Their memories of each other are so precious. But terrible things had happened which emotionally scarred both of them away from their home and each other. I love how they get to be surprised toward the beginning of the book when they see each other for the first time in twenty years!

Ruby has returned to help Emma, her best friend from her Bluestone River days. Emma needs Ruby’s help, and Ruby feels the need to escape from where she currently lives. Ruby expects to leave as soon as possible from the hometown that brings back hard memories. Mike has a sweet little 6 year old boy, Jason, whom he barely knows. Jason has gone through a life changing fire and saw his mother die. He will not talk because of the trauma. Like I said these characters are going through real life heartaches.

All of the Harlequin Heartwarming contemporary romance novels go up and down with joy and sadness. A Family for Jason by Virginia McCullough fulfilled my expectations of realistic life difficulties and fast heart beating romance.
