Book Review: Homecoming Hero

A sweet romance that took me quite by surprise has turned into a lovely little novel that will not be leaving my keeper shelf anytime soon.


I really wasn’t sure what to expect in HOMECOMING HERO. But the story in and of itself drew me in. It is a sweet romance between a returning Iraqi vet and a young woman determined to head to the Middle East to be a missionary. The circumstances that thrust them together keep the story going and the romantic connection progressed at a natural pace.

What I really liked about this book is it felt genuine. So often in romance, the hero and heroine get into a big fight and never speak to each other until a immense event thrusts them back together. But what I loved so much about this story is the heroine has a good head on her shoulders. She doesn’t fly to conclusions or make flippant remarks. She has her struggles and her growth along with the hero’s is a great progression through the story, but it felt natural.

I liked the military angle, but it didn’t overwhelm the story. The faith element and the romance were all perfectly balanced and I enjoyed the time I spent reading this story. I would definitely say this book is well worth it.
