Tammy Grace Post

Return to the picturesque island community where you’ll check in with your old friends and meet a few new ones along the way.

Linda is knee deep in bouquets and boutonnieres, designing a beautiful ceremony for her friends. The bride’s matchmaking plot takes shape as she volunteers her best friend, Max, to help Linda create the perfect wedding.

Linda and Max are thrown together when a tragedy threatens to destroy the honeymooners’ newfound happiness before they have the possibility of a life together. Compelled to make some changes in life, Linda uncovers a family secret that causes her to question her existence and leads her on a search for the truth.

As Max begins to penetrate the protective walls around Linda’s heart, a visit from her youth causes her to risk it all. While struggling between the past and the future, Linda has a chance to let more than her flowers bloom.

What I Thought:

Where do I start?  I absolutely love this series!  I want to move to Friday Harbor!!  It seems like such an idyllic place.  The residents are so friendly and there for each other no matter what, I just love that.  Some may think that there is too much detail in this book, but I thought it was wonderful how Tammy explained everything, it made me feel I was right there with Linda, Max, Sam, Jeff, Regi, Jen, and all the rest of the great characters in this story.  I read the first book, Finding Home, but I enjoyed Home Blooms even more.  Now I am looking forward to a Promise of Home.  I just can’t get enough of Friday Harbor, please Tammy, write more about Friday Harbor after Promise of Home.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

 Spend Christmas in Friday Harbor this year surrounded by the friends you know and a couple of special deliveries from the Hometown Harbor Series.

In between holiday activities, friends of Linda and Max are helping plan their Valentine’s Day wedding. Regi is anxiously awaiting the arrival of her fortieth birthday and the fulfillment of the promise she and Cam made over twenty years ago.

As she anticipates the reunion with Cam, she’s oblivious to the signals the local delivery man, Nate, is giving her. She and Nate work together helping a newcomer open an art and antiques shop. While spending time together, she discovers she has feelings for Nate and bonds with the new shopkeeper over their past losses.

As Regi’s contemplating her choices, she’s dealt a blow that brings her to her knees and reconnects her with the past. In the pursuit of her youthful fairytale promise, she’ll risk the only chance she’s encountered for true happiness and a home.

What I Thought:

Well this was another great installment in the Hometown Harbor Series.  I just love this place and hate to leave it when each book ends.  I am eagerly awaiting the next installment, because there are still many stories to tell.  Friday Harbor keeps getting more great friends and neighbors.  Again I would love to live in a place like this where everyone cares for each other and goes out of their way to be there.  I really enjoyed reading Regi and Nate's story.  And I was able to catch up with the other wonderful residents.  Do yourself a favor and read this great series.  It starts with Finding Home.  I also love all the wonderful dogs in this story and how much the characters love their pets.
