BOOK REVIEW: Home by Rachel Smith

✭✭✭✭✭

ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):

After twelve years on top of the charts, country music superstar Lily Rae has decided to hang up the microphone and move home. Becoming Lillian Raftzen again is harder than she anticipated and soon, it seems running home is not enough to escape from her manipulative ex-agent, who not only threatens to end her happiness, but her life. When the girl of his dreams walks back into his life twelve years later, Justin DeLuca realizes as much as he loves her, she is no longer the girl he remembers. With everything they must overcome, can the two of them make their dreams come true? Lily's dream to sing and Justin's dream for a family are so very far from the same path. But by veering off course they find a new dream on a new path ending up right where it all began.....home.

MY REVIEW:

Recently I had been hoping to find a book that I "just can't put down."  Despite the fact that I read a lot, I rarely feel that way about the books I read and I wanted to find something that really drew me in.  This book certainly did the trick!  I'm not sure I've ever read a book as fast as I devoured this one.

I occasionally read fiction, but never romantic fiction.  I (reluctantly) may have discovered a new favorite genre.  Home by Rachel Smith is a romance novel, but it also has a rich story line that builds in suspense as the book goes on and keeps you guessing until the very end.

If you're a woman (and/or a fan of romantic fiction), I highly recommend this book with one disclaimer - if this book were a movie, it would be rated R for language and sexual content (4 scenes, I believe).  If these things offend you, this may not be the book for you.
