On Tour: The Road That Leads to Home by Jaimie Hope and a Goodreads Giveaway!

The Road That Leads to Home

The Road That Leads to Home by Jaimie Hope
Series: The Sara Rhea Chronicles, #1
Paperback and e-book, 114 pages
Published February 26th 2015 by Back to Basic Publishing

Sara's life was going along peacefully until she got the early morning phone call that changed everything. Now she finds herself heading back where she began, home. Not only does she have to deal with a difficult older sister and helping to keep the family's inn afloat, Sara has to work alongside her high school sweetheart who still looks as gorgeous as ever and her feelings that she saw all this coming. Her dreams and nightmares seem to come true right before her eyes. It has to all be a coincidence, doesn't it?


My thoughts about The Road That Leads To Home ~~ 

This was a quick read at only 114 pages and I enjoyed the time I spent in Sara's world. I read it in one sitting and I like when that happens.

Sara gets that call that we all dread getting -- her father has taken ill and is in the hospital. She needs to get home as soon as possible.  
'She could still see the visions she had prior to the phone call that not only jarred her from her sleep, but also rocked the foundation her life had been built on. As troublesome as that was, the feeling that she had seen it all happen before her eyes in her sleep and could have prevented it with a phone call tore her apart.'
She hasn't been home in three years and there were bad feelings left behind when she took off for the big city. She has to try to make amends with her sister so that they can keep the inn running while their father is in the hospital and recuperating. Plus her former boyfriend is working at the inn now and that's extremely awkward.
'She remembered him telling her that he would not sit around waiting for her and if she left, it was over between them.'
The Road That Leads to Home is a story full of great characters and complicated relationships but to me, the story felt rushed at times. I would have loved to have seen both the characters and the relationships developed more fully. This story had the potential to be so much more if it would have had more depth to it. That being said and the fact that this is book #1 in this series, I look forward to seeing what the author has in store for us in book #2.
