He lives by his heart. She lives by her plans. Until they lose control of both.
Returning to his hometown in the Catskills is the last thing firefighter Ethan DeLuca’s ready for. He’d rather leave memories where they belong—buried under ashes. But if he doesn’t step up to take care of Nonna, who will? Working at the camp down the road seems like the perfect solution. Until his feisty redheaded boss ends up being one fire he has no idea how to put out.
Cassidy McAdams is on a mission. Get the camp Grandpa left her ready to sell, turn enough profit to bail Mom’s business out of foreclosure, and hightail it back to her life in New York City. With unexpected complications mounting, she can’t afford any distractions. Especially a ridiculously charming one who’s eager to rescue her at every turn.
It’d be easier on them both to hide behind professional boundaries. But when unexplained attacks on the camp ignite a connection between them they can’t ignore, running away is no longer an option.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Two damaged people—several, actually—a last-ditch effort to fix an inherited campground, and sparks flying between the reclusive firefighter and the fiery redhead make a heartwarming tale. Add in some mysterious vandalism, and the pages fly. The song that gives this book its title touched my soul; I’d love to hear it put to music.
Ethan and Cassidy’s secrets keep their dance toward romance a one-step-forward, two-steps-back number until a common goal, to bring the campground back to its former glory, creates a semblance of unison. Secrets revealed, however, could burn them both.
Redemption stories are my favorite, and Write Me Home is a great example. For that reason, I award this novel four stars. Recommended. I was given a copy of this book by the publisher.
