Coming Home is a lovely sweet story set partly in Santa Fe and partly in the small Texan town of Seguin. It’s the second book in Audrey Wick’s Texas Sisters series, but it stands alone well. This book is gently written and has a relaxed feel about it though the heroes of the story are far from relaxed. Mallory has been doing her dream job as an English professor at Santa Fe College until an incident with a student throws her life into a spin resulting in her taking a sebatical through the Spring semester. She’s scared and has lost her self-confidence and jumps at the opportunity to stay with her sister for a while. Alec has his own business with three friends. As partner in a moving company he meets Mallory when she is preparing to pack up and relocate to Seguin. He’s warm, witty and philosophical and he fits into Mallory’s life seamlessly. The attraction between these two is instant but it’s more than physical - they are just plain comfortable together, though distance is in the way of a relationship. I liked Mallory and Alec. They’re normal people who are easy to relate to and I cared that they would have a future together. I think the pacing in the story was a little slow at times and there wasn’t always enough tension to keep me invested but overall this story is a lovely read.
