Coming Home to Love by Katie O'Boyle Blog Tour

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: September 24, 2014

With his health deteriorating and his spirit dying, Justin Cushman has come home to Tompkins Falls in the Finger Lakes to assist his injured nephew Joel. Sick of accumulating wealth for its own sake, Justin knows that his life is meaningless without a loving relationship and a purpose for his billions. On a whim, he visits Joel’s spa, looking for a massage to relieve his pain. Gianessa Dupioni is a gifted masseuse who knows what ails Justin, and she starts him on a journey of health and happiness. Too bad for Justin that Gianessa is devastated by personal losses and strictly focused on rebuilding her career. Justin may be a master strategist in the financial world, but can he persuade Gianessa to let love in?

Katie O'Boyle got much of the difficulties and pain of the characters out front. At least for the most part. There are still some things that need to be answered but there are only a few questions at the beginning of the novel.

I will admit that while I enjoyed this book it also didn't fully capture my attention. I'm not sure if it was just that I wasn't falling into the character's lives or whatnot but it just didn't grab my attention as some novels have.

As always it was interesting to hear new perspectives and possibly see new takes on scenes that might not have been the most obvious of choice. It kept things interesting and if you've read the first book in the series, you'll probably be happy to see some familiar characters. But Coming Home To Love can also be read as a stand-alone as I have not read the first novel yet. 

There were some moments where tension was high as well as some laugh-worthy moments, perhaps at the expense of a character. But it also included character growth, something that was interesting to witness as the book moved on and characters became more familiar. 

Coming Home to Love was a good book, one that if you're interesting in difficult romances it will be right up your alley.
