Finding Home by Roxanne Snopek, is a second chance love story based in small town setting. Samara has always had a challenging life. With moving so much as a kid, she never was able to set down roots. The one time it really mattered, when she was falling in love with Logan, she was ripped away again without even a chance at goodbye. Now sixteen years later she has come back to that same small town, this time hoping to help her daughter Jade have some stability in her life after the death of her father, Samara’s husband. Sam never thought she would meet back up again with Logan, and by no means did she expect him to be the one in charge of the renovation of the house she is buying.
Logan can’t believe Samara has walked back in to his life. From the moment he sees her, all his old feelings come rushing back and there is nothing he won’t do for her. I loved Logan in this story. He really knew he still cared for Sam and he wasn’t shy about letting her know. Sam on the other hand was really tentative but with time she too found it impossible to ignore the attraction that still simmered after all these years.
This story was cute with everything from a feisty/ but deep down sweet old lady, to a wannabe service dog, there is a lot to like. The only downfall in the story was Samara. Likely due to old hurts and insecurities, she really didn’t come across as a likable heroine and it was hard for me to connect with her. The crazy thing is she even seemed to have issues dealing with her own daughter. Logan however seemed perfect in every way and helps to save the story. From his interactions with his students to Sam’s daughter, he really is a great guy. I am convinced we will get more from Snopek on the others in this small town.

Fourteen years after her abrupt departure, Samara Davis is back in Marietta, Montana. Now a widow, all she wants is to give her anxious four-year old daughter, Jade, a happy, stable home. Unfortunately, the heritage house she purchased is nowhere near ready for occupancy. And the man responsible for the delay is none other than high-school golden boy and love of her life Logan Stafford, available, interested and just as swoon-worthy as ever.
But this single mother has one priority. She’s all Jade has, and she’ll do anything, make any sacrifice, for her child’s future. And getting distracted by a long-lost boyfriend is not on the agenda.
Logan Stafford never forgot the lonely girl from the wrong side of the tracks who broke his heart. Not only is she as irresistible as ever, but her delightfully odd little girl has him wrapped around her finger in no time. Believing they’ve been given a second chance, Logan’s determined to pull out all the stops on the house to prove to them both that he’s a guy they can count on. But, despite how easy it is to love Logan, a second chance is still a gamble Samara can’t afford to take.
