Publisher's Summary

Back home is the best place to start over in a heart-stirring Texas romance about friendship, second chances, and small-town scandals by New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.

Riverbend, Texas, doesn’t look like the crossroads of anywhere. But for four high school besties reuniting after twenty years, it’s a place to unpack a lot of baggage.

Risa’s headed for divorce, Mary Nell’s been kicked to the curb by her leech of a boyfriend, and Haley was just blindsided by a shocking family secret. But restless army veteran Jessica Callaway, looking to plant roots, has an idea: corral her fellow former cheerleaders and renovate an abandoned church smack-dab in the middle of three dry counties into a bar. Throw in a grill and Wade Granger—a onetime nerd turned surprisingly crush-worthy investor—and their lives are on tap for a turnaround. Amen to that.

Except for one hitch: the white-clapboard dream is causing a ruckus. With a renewed bond, hard work, and the promise of romance, Jessica and her friends aren’t backing down. For Riverbend, this is going to be a homecoming—and a scandal—to remember.

it was ok

it was a pretty good book. I just don't like when women push the idea of children not needing fathers and fathers not deserving to know their kids cause a women is hurt by his actions. not fair to the kids.

Disappointed in this book

I am usually a fan of Carolyn Brown’s work, but this book does not come up to standard. The characters are underdeveloped, with no substance. The plot is weak, without rising action, a real climax, or satisfactory resolution.

I feel that the author is drawing a line in the sand between conservative values and liberal viewpoints, and she has somehow turned conservatism into the bad guy.

I am disappointed.

Okay listen

I was disappointed in this book. I kept waiting for there to be some excitement but it mostly mocked church goer’s. I typically love Carolyn Brown, but just wasn’t feeling this book. Don’t judge the book based on me it’s has a great narrator & a wonderful author.

My teeth hurt from too much sweetness.

If you’re looking for a too good to be true group of characters and a plot right out of a Hallmark card, you’ll love this saccharine sweet story where the “bad guy” is an old evangelical Christian lady. And they all lived happily ever after.

Comfy, easy listen.

This is a sweet story written so easily that it induces exactly zero anxiety. I’ve been having a really hard time lately, and really enjoyed how uplifting and easy this story was. A welcome break from domestic thrillers, intense dramas, and hardcore romance.

Good listen

This was another good book. Not my favorite by this author but worth the listen nonetheless. I am sure others will enjoy the book as well. The narrator did a wonderful job once again. I like that she narrates a lot of this author’s books.

Horrible. My ears were bleeding.

This was 100% awful in every aspect. Literally the worst book I have ever come across. Don’t want your time or money.
