Book Review: Coming Home by K J
Ordinary plus extraordinary equal an adorable and heartwarming courtship.
Sam Markson is a coveted teacher at a posh private school in Melbourne, Australia. Abigail Taylor is a famous american movie star that needs someone to watch and provide education to her daughter while she is filming. Sam’s father, who works in show business, recommends his daughter for the job.
This book is available through Kindle Unlimited. You never know what kind of quality you are going to get. But I had seen quite a few positive reviews flowing through, so I decided to give this a shot. I am so glad that I did and I hope more people do as well.
I loved Sam. Good at her job and bad with women. She just doesn’t know how to interact with them in order to pursue any interest she has. Which is so surprising because she is charismatic, likable, and above average at making people feel comfortable. She is thoughtful and doesn’t take herself too seriously. The way that she interacts with Abigail’s daughter is special. That relationship was as sweet to witness as the one between Sam and Abigail.
So many romance books tell the reader how much characters love each other. So few excel at showing you them falling. Honestly, I can’t say I remember a book that did it better. This was full of moments. You could feel the adoration. Anytime Abigail observed Sam with Grace was swoon worthy.
This was proudly Australian. I learned a bit about the crazy local ideas of interesting foods. And it was funny to read about an american accent.
Overall, this book way exceeded my expectations. It was a charming story of falling in love despite everything that says you shouldn’t.
I recommend this to everyone. I don’t think you will be disappointed. Romance, Australia, celebrity, education, relationships, volunteering, animals, dance offs, and some horrific sounding food called a chip roll.
