Review ~ Coming Home – Kimberley O’Malley

Get your copy HERE!!!


Dr. Elizabeth Abbott Fitzgerald has spent the last ten years of her life running; from tragedy, from family, from love. But now her mother’s failing health calls her home to Windsor Falls, North Carolina; to the place where her past awaits. Sam Bishop can’t believe his eyes when the love of his life returns after ten long years. All he wants is to clear his conscience and get back the family he lost when Connor, his best friend and Elizabeth’s husband died tragically. Could it really be true that time heals all wounds?

Coming Home tells the story of ER doctor Elizabeth Fitzgerald and her journey back to the woman she used to be when called home to Windsor Falls. After back to back tragedies sent her running across the country a decade ago, her mother’s health scare brings her back where she belongs and face to face with her best friend Sam. All grown up and more withdrawn than she remembers, Sam Bishop has a few words to say to the best friend he lost weeks after he lost the other. Kimberley O’Malley has created a wonderful small town with lots of personality, but more importantly the story of Elizabeth and Sam is emotional and tender and real. I had my doubts that these two would get their act together but their journey was a pleasure to follow.

There were times when reading Coming Home that I wanted to shake both Sam and Elizabeth! They were entirely too old to act so immaturely and hello, communication issues. I could cut them both some slack because of the traumas they’d experienced and the fact that the lifelong friendship and combustible chemistry pretty much leapt off the page. I loved that Kimberley O’Malley introduced the town of Windsor Falls with someone returning to town so the reader could get a feel of how it used to be in Elizabeth’s memories and how it is now.

The secondary characters, especially the moms and Dr. Flynn were perfect. They really enhanced the story and added much needed comic relief between the serious bits. I’m eager to see if Dr. Flynn ever gets his girl in the next book!
