Almost Home - Giveaway and Review

Who hasn't imagined falling in love with the man you've dreamed about since you were young. Hoping for the perfect day for him to realize that you are his dream girl and falls head over heels in love with you?

Steffie Wyler, owner of One Scoop or Two, the best place for ice cream in the tourist town of St. Dennis, imagines that with every encounter she has had with Wade MacGregor. Only when she invited him as her prom date, his excuse was simply he respected his best friend, her oldest brother, too much to take advantage of little Steffie.

Now that she is grown and is attending a wedding, she hopes with just the right dress she finally get her wish.

It isn't that Wade isn't interested in Steffie, but the timing has been all wrong. When the prom came around, she was simply too young and there are laws that protect younger people from going out with someone as young as Steffie was at 17! Only when he sees her at the wedding, all grown up, he believes he too will finally get his chance. She looks amazing!!

Only one phone call will alter both of their lives forever that night. Their happily ever after is about to be changed in ways neither of them would ever imagine. Will true love stand the test of time? Or will love spells be in order to win the heart of Wade MacGregor once and for all?

In the next sequel from the Chesapeake Diaries by Mariah Stewart, Almost Home takes us into the lives of the MacGregor family once more. Here we recapture fading love for Steffie Wyler among all her friends and family of St. Dennis. With some long discovered journals from an attic, they are about to discover what some of the residents have been hiding in this quaint sea-side tourist town just waiting to be uncovered at long last.

I received Almost Home by Mariah Stewart compliments of TLC Book Tours and having read each one of this books in a series, it was a welcome home for me as well. Being familiar with the people of St. Dennis is an inviting time for me to see the youngest, Steffie Wyler who has run the town's most popular ice cream shop complete with the most delightful creative flavors ever, dream about the man of her life coming to sweep her off her feet. This is a must read for the summer as you escape in the romance of truly having your dreams come true in the most unusual way possible. This one scores a 5 out of 5 stars for me. I can only hope that there is one more in this series! She has captivated my heart and truly left me wanting more. You can read this as a stand alone or pick up the whole set and start at the beginning and be whisked away!

    My idea of romance is exactly the life I am living with my Husband. We have been married 13 years and every day is better than the last. We have on wonderful family and are the best of friends. We still enjoy date nights and candle lit dinners. I could not ask for a more romantic Husband. I even get flowers and gifts for no reason!
