Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for providing an advanced review copy in exchange for an honest review.
Jonathan’s world is falling apart. He’s being investigated by the SEC, he’s lost his job, his home, his wife and all his money has been seized. Having nowhere else to go he retreats to his childhood home where he attends his 20th high school reunion. At the reunion he passes the time with Jackie, the homecoming queen. During high school he admired her from afar but didn’t even know he existed. Now she’s in an abusive marriage and finds Jonathan irresistible. In the following days, they meet up secretly as Jonathan deals with his father’s death and Jackie desperately searches for a way out of her situation. When Jackie’s husband is killed by a hit-and-run driver outside his workplace, will Jackie and Jonathan finally be able to be together? For the answer, I highly recommend you read the book. This story is full of angles and delves into the limits of love, loyalty and devotion.
“The Girl from Home” is a great story. I couldn’t read it fast enough, because I was dying to know how it was all going to work out. This one definitely had me on the edge of my seat.
Alinefromabook’s recommendation: THUMBS-UP for a great story with strong, captivating characters. Definitely worth reading.
