I really loved this collection of three short stories based in Wales.
Home Sweet Home – The build up with its twists and turns was really gripping and just when I thought I had it all figured out I then realised how wrong I was when I turned the page. Mel packs up her bag and leaves her fiance and his interfering mother behind her as she heads out on the road. She ends up at Callum’s sister’s bed and breakfast and he offers her a place to stay. His place and what a place it turns out to be…
A Long Way From Home – Mal comes back from Australia to his native homeland to give his eldest daughter away at her wedding. The ‘Yes’ man his ex-wife left him for is holding court with the guests and playing the perfect step-father but is life really as rosy as it seems? Mal’s youngest daughter gives him a question to ponder in this thought provoking story.
Home Is Where The Heart Is – A romance between those who live on opposite sides of the pond looks over before it begins in this tale of an instant attraction between Morgan and Casey.
Jan Ruth really does know how to tug at the emotions of her readers and I’m not just talking about the romantic side. Two of these stories have a darker touch with the cleverly written Home Sweet Home in particular being one to make you think.
I have yet to meet a story penned by Jan Ruth I didn’t like. Fabulous!
