Finding Home by Tammy L Grace

Finding Home is a coming of age novel, but for a middle-aged woman devastated by past heartaches and loss, who flees to a small island expecting a change of scenery and discovers much more.

Shattered by her husband's infidelities after twenty-five years of marriage, Sam Collins is plagued by constant fear and loneliness, reliving the tragic death of her parents and the betrayal by the man she loved.  She leaves Seattle seeking relief from the relentless darkness that has swallowed her.  With only her dog for companionship, she sets out to live in her vacation home on San Juan Island.

In her search for a carpenter, she meets the handsome and very available, Jeff Cooper.  Sam's not looking for romance, but can't deny the attraction to the retired firefighter, turned handyman.  While working together and eating her pies, Jeff finds himself falling for her.

The past she wrestles to let go of comes hurtling back when she least expects it.  In an effort to help a struggling young man, she is forced to confront the anguish she is desperate to escape.  While torn between love and friendship, she must face her fears and choose between the life she's known and a chance for a family and home she's been longing for all her life.

  1. Hi Tammy. You're a new-to-me author. Is San Juan Island a real place? Is it a place that you've been?

    1. Hi Catherine,
      Yes, San Juan Island is a real place off the coast of Washington State. I've been there a handful of time and it is gorgeous!

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was easy to be drawn in with such likable characters. There were enough unexpected twists to keep you guessing, which made it all the more interesting. Very impressive first book. If you like Debbie Macomber books you will enjoy this one too.

  3. I was sorry to have this book end, so was delighted to know that #2 in the series is now available. The overall story was very appealing. The sense of place and the characters that inhabit it had me hooked. The first of what I hope will be a long shelf full of books.

  4. Thank you so much for putting this book on my radar and I've had fun following the tour too!
