Dani’s survived a lot of sh*t storms.
Her mother died. Her two sisters loathed her. One aunt hated her. The other was strangely distant, but the worst storm—being dumped by her childhood best friend/high school boyfriend/first love for her younger sister.
There went the one person who was hers and with that, the main reason she stuck around. So, she left for ten years. But now she’s back, and nothing’s the same.
With help from Jonah Bannon, a reformed—kind of—bad boy she remembers from high school, Dani uncovers family secrets that have spanned generations. And along with those, she’s about to face the biggest sh*t storm of her life.
Only this time, she may not survive.
Home Tears was my kind of story, love a girl returning to her home town to face her demons, lick her wounds, repair her heart and have a second chance at love. It does have a different feel from other Tijan stories but is was great to read a standalone with plenty of emotion, drama, angst but also have the character heal and her issues be resolved.
Jonah for me was perfect for Dani at this stage of her life, he was an anchor she needed to hold onto for stability and to stop the flow against her. Dani was losing control and it was interesting to see her return to the start of her troubles and face what she walked away from.
The family dynamic, secrets and hidden moments I devoured and there were some wonderful characters such as Mae. The history of this family amongst the women whether they were sisters, mothers, daughters and grandmothers was a great tale woven with hurt and love. It had me guessing who these men were that these women fell in love with and made multiple mistakes with and it was just riveting to see each generation make the same mistakes. Would this young generation follow in their footsteps? It was definitely interesting to follow the two sisters left being Dani and Julia.
I love how in a small town people know what you are doing before you are even thinking about it, the humour amongst these old school friends and the change in power kept me entertained.
Jake, Boone and Jonah, what more can I say about these alpha men, they definatly kept Dani on her toes. I actually admit I was immediately a team Boone fan but then Jonah slipped under the radar and I was hoping he would be Dani HEA.
I loved especially the last few chapters, Erica’s final words and the Epilogue was perfect.
Home Tears is a wonderful story of a girl leaving home and returning a woman and finally finding her peace, strength and in the end creating family connections.
