I loved the first book in this series, it pulled me in and I loved the ride to the end. I can't say that for Coming Home. It was a good read, but I didn't feel that connection between Grace and Logan.

Grace came home to LA after her divorce to start fresh. She wanted to take herself out of the limelight her abusive manic husband and a Ponzi scheming, father-in-law put her in by association. When she comes home, the last person she expects to see is Logan. Logan was always that one that got away when she left for New York. She's not the same person she was when she left. Can the new Grace make it work with her lost love? Is a second chance at love worth the risk?

I think Coming Home is a good read. It's a sweet love story, but the MCs are just missing that sexy chemistry for me.

This is the second in the series, but would still be a satisfying read as a standalone. Jill Blake writes great stories that involve doctors in some form or other – I have read a number in the past and never been disappointed.

Here we meet two doctors, who had once been close, and now get a second chance. Miscommunications in their youth caused a rift which both consider to be the fault of the other. Healing and accepting that priorities change are effectively dealt with in this grown up and intelligent story. It is sweet and caring, as well as raising a number of serious issues. A good mix of chemistry and passion, as well as careers and family.
