HOME AGAIN is the second book in the Bradshaws series as well as the second book I’ve read by Shirlee McCoy but it won’t be my last. Once I started reading, I was emotionally invested in all of the characters and what they were going through. Porter Bradshaw, ex Navy seal, finds himself taking care of his brother’s six children since his brother died in a car accident. Their mother is slowly coming out of a coma and these kids have no one except for him and his two brothers. The kids are all adopted and Porter isn’t the only one carrying around some baggage. Clementine Warren is Sunday’s former neighbor and friend and is trying to help with the farm and has become a jack of all trades. Poor Clementine, her heart and her life will never be the same.
HOME AGAIN is filled with friendship, forgiveness, family, mystery, humor, and romance. The spotlight isn’t really on Clementine and Porter though. It is all on the children and how they are dealing with their mom, Sunday, in the hospital in a coma. The kids will have you giggling out loud as you read about their antics. Then you have Clementine trying to ignore her attraction to Porter. Porter is afraid of taking care of the kids because he is single and has no kids of his own, so no experience. The only father experience he has ever seen is his own father who was very mean and abusive and Porter doesn’t want to turnout the same way.
I enjoyed every minute I spent reading HOME AGAIN and am looking forward to spending more time with this heart warming family. Shirlee McCoy knows just how to make you fall in love with this mixed up family in a small town. It reminds us that a house is just a house and a family is not about being blood related but about the loved ones you care for. I can’t wait to see how the last Bradshaw brother comes to the family in the next story. Shirlee McCoy stirred up every one of my emotions and did it with humor that kept me giggling. I’m so excited to read her previous books and anything new she writes. That’s how much I loved HOME AGAIN.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kensington Books through Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
