Book Review: A McKaslin Homecoming by Jillian Hart

Title: A McKaslin Homecoming
Author: Jillian Hart
Publisher: Steeple Hill
Release Date: July 2007
Pages: 310
Series: The McKaslin Clan Series 3 #5
3 STARS: I Liked It

When contacted by her long-lost grandmother, Lauren McKaslin wanted to reconnect – with all the warmhearted Montana McKaslins. For too long, she’d relied solely on herself and her faith. But mistrustful lawman Caleb Stone stood in the way, and his questions about her were intimidating. Was his attention more than a protective instinct? Now that she believed in family again, perhaps this was also the time to believe in true love.

My Thoughts:
A McKaslin Homecoming was a sweet love story about new love and family. Lauren was taken from her family when she was 2 years old by her mother. Her mother left behind her husband and 3 children to get out of the small town and try to become famous. Her childhood was rocky and full of mistrust. She couldn’t rely on her mom and thought her family didn’t want her.

Now she was older (I think 19 or 20) and was invited to meet her grandmother. After many years she gets to know her family. It was interesting to see how the family reacted to her homecoming. The sisters were a fun crew for sure. Caleb was the neighbor and family friend Lauren met first. Their relationship was cute.

The thing that bothered me was that things went along too easily without enough conflict. I also wanted more at the end. But overall it was a sweet and fast read I think romance lovers would enjoy.

Book Review: The Rancher’s Promise by Jillian Hart

Title: The Rancher’s Promise
Author: Jillian Hart
Publisher: Steeple Hill Love Inspired
Release Date: June 2010
Pages: 278
Series: Granger Family Ranch #3
3 STARS: I Liked It

Rancher Justin Granger hasn’t seen his high school sweetheart since she rode out of town with his heart. Now, “too good for this small town” Rori Cornell stands on his doorstep, seeking a job as his cook and housekeeper. He can’t turn her away, not with the sadness and worry in her cornflower-blue eyes. He’ll just have to avoid her between meals. But when Justin discovers that Rori’s big dream has always been “him, ” he finds his heart softening. And an old promise yearning to be kept.

My Thoughts:
This was a really sweet love story. I loved learning about Rori and Justin’s as their past together and apart came out through the story. Rori had left Justin and the farm life to go to college. Rori had gotten married and was now back in Justin’s life after a rough divorce. The characters were great with a fun peek into the life of a rancher. I didn’t know cows could show affection!

The only thing that bothered me was the change in Point of View. The POV changed without any break which left me confused and having to re-read paragraphs. Sometimes the switch would happen at a chapter, but other times it was the next sentence. Other than that it was a nice romance.

If you’re looking for a sweet love story about second chances then you’ll enjoy this book.
