Home Again Giveaway and Review

Picking up just where Coming Home left off, Mariah Stewart takes us on the second part of our journey in the book, Home Again, part of the Chesapeake Diaries series. This time the story that takes place within the small seaside community of St. Dennis, involves Dallas MacGregor, a famous Hollywood movie star seeking solace among her friends and family while waiting for her divorce to be final from her husband Emilio, who has turned up in the tabloids with being seen with other woman in a sex scandal nightmare. Dallas takes her son Cody with her to St. Dennis after seeing that even she can't protect him from the rumors circulating about his father even at summer camp. She feels that they both can use a break while things simmer down in Hollywood.

Dallas returns to her Aunt Berry's house, who herself is a retired long famous starlet from the silver screen as well, but since changing her last name, the press haven't been able to bother her in this small seaside town. Berry is delighted to have Dallas and Cody stay with her since she has been lonely for so long. After she herself gave up happiness and love since returning back to St. Dennis herself, Berry still finds herself remembering her long lost love, Archer and the memories of what could have been.
Grant Wyler has also returned to St. Dennis after his divorce with his daughter Paige to take over the local veterinary practice. He shares a history with Dallas of a summer romance that lasted through their high school years only to find himself left broken hearted when Dallas left to find her life's passion in Hollywood on the silver screen, never looking back at what her life could have been with Grant. Since this is such a small town, odds are highly likely that Dallas and Grant as destined to bump into one another. Will the sparks from their past love still warm their hearts, or has the past really been left as water under the bridge? Read, Home Again by Mariah Stewart and find out!!! There is even another book coming out in the Spring of 2011 to continue this saga of love.

    I like a good, clean, sweet romance emphasis on clean.


  3. I'd love to read this. I'm a new follower and I'm enjoying reading your blog.

  4. To me, romance is putting God first then the spouse and loveing them till death do us part. Doing little things for them daily like making coffee, having dinner ready after work....that is what love is to me.

    Romance is kindness and harmony and compatability. Romance is understanding, loving and generosity. Romance is showing that you care.


  6. I am a follower and email subscriber. My idea of romance is someone who is hopelessly romantic like me. Someone who leaves romantic notes or messages. Someone who believes in soulmates. Someone who loves and cherishes you forever and makes you feel very special.

  7. Romance to me is snuggling with the one you love, next to their heartbeat.

  8. Dinner out and the television off. I'm a follower.

  9. Romance to me is the little things. Like brushing my hair and happening to glace at my husband watching me with a smile on his face.

    My definition of romance is fully trusting someone, knowing they will be there when you need them, enjoying activities together, laughing together...

    Warning: this is a LONG one. Sorry.

    My idea of romance is staying at home, cuddling on the couch watching a movie. Just the two of us. It is also the mundane every day tasks like cleaning the house, laundry, etc. It is also being by my bedside during my extended time in the hospital and holding my hand before a surgery, and being there when I wake up. It is taking care of my me and my kids when I'm not able to. It's when he reassures me that everything will be all right. I am beyond blessed to have this kind of man who I have been married to for 17 years. Very blessed.
