Coming Home was an OK book. It is a book about the friendship between women and also about the relationships between women and men. All three women have their own set of troubles but the fact that they give advice (whether wanted or not) ties everything together. These are three women who are leading very different lives but manage to stay friends through thick and thin.
The characters in this book were very dimensional. They all have problems and are very believable and real. The secondary characters all bring something to the storyline of this book. The storyline itself was good and well written. Dee Holmes did a good job of bringing together three different storylines and meshing them together into one story. A good book to read!
Olivia's two best friends, Lexie James and Claire Fitgerald join her from Illinois and Virginia respectively. The three women, though living widely differing lifestyles, are at crossroads in their relationships with men. Olivia questions whether saying no was the right thing; Lexie wonders why one night stands leave her lonely and empty; Claire questions whether her husband even cares. The past is all around them in Bishop, but it is the future each one must decide on.
Though at times having three adult women with varying relational issues to muddle through can seem overwhelming readers will appreciate this delightful contemporary tale. The story line mostly focuses on Olivia and to a degree Daniel, but also uses the subplots of Lexie and Claire to enhance the prime theme that relationships require communication, trust and work or they atrophy. Fans of modern day relationship dramas will enjoy COMING HOME with Dee Holmes who shows sometimes you can go home.
