Description

Jake Owens is tired of life on his parents’ Montana ranch, catering to city folk who want a taste of old-fashioned country living. He enjoys life in the fast lane, with fast cars and even faster women. When he falls in with the wrong crowd and is accused of murder, a stranger’s bizarre offer at a second chance might be his only hope to clear his name.

Rachel Parker is highly devoted to her family. A tragedy prompts a daring move to the Oregon Territory for a fresh start in a new land. After meeting the wagon train’s scout, the meaning of a fresh start may be more than she ever imagined.

Jake can’t believe he’s been sent back in time to act as scout for a wagon train headed for Oregon, and given the added burden of keeping one emigrant woman safe during the journey. He and Rachel are confused by their attraction to each other. Jake’s ill-mannered, unconventional ways are overshadowed only by his notorious reputation. Rachel’s traditional values and quiet, responsible character are the complete opposite of what attracts Jake to a woman. When their forbidden attraction turns to love, what will happen at the end of the trail?

    This book was fantastic. Everything was well-written and even the history was explained to the fullest detail. This book excelled every expectation, and was very detailed that the story line flowed.

    I loved the book Come Home to Me. The writing helped me care about the characters. Loved the realism and the time travel since I enjoy Science Fiction as well. This book is well researched and will make you feel you were actually lived in the past. The places actually exist and it was fun to look them up on a map during the reading.

    I didn't really feel much chemistry between Jake and Rachel. The book tended to drag in places and there was a lot of repetition.

    I was raised by farmer/ranchers (my grandparents) from Oklahoma who had to travel the "Trail of Tears". Since I know what it means to "cowgirl up", being a woman has made me a stronger person. This book and characters started out kinda weak at first read but developed into a wonderful and strong heartwarming story for people like me who believe in second chances. KSW
