Coming Home to Maverick by Sophia Summers, Book Review
Bailey is back. Maverick thought he was over her. But neither can deny the feelings that will always be there.
Bailey has made mistakes, so many she doesn't think she'll really ever forgive herself. But her daughter deserves the kind of life Bailey had growing up. When she shows up on her parents' doorstep back to her hometown, the one person she isn't ready to see is Maverick. But will she ever be able to face him?
The minute Maverick hears Bailey is back, he knows his heart still belongs to her. But what kind of man trusts a woman who left him at the altar? As he grapples with a new daughter that he can't help but wish was his, all the responsibilities of running his family's ranch, and the hurt he feels about Bailey's betrayal, he finds new love and hope not only with her but with God.
As soon as God is a part of the equation, the sweetness they find is better than they ever had. Just maybe this second chance around is God's gift of happiness to them both.
Be prepared to go on a bucking bronco ride of emotions in Coming Home to Maverick! It gave me all the feels from happiness, sadness, anger, bitterness, forgiveness, and overall love. I wasn't sure what to expect when Bailey came back into town with her daughter in tow. How would the town react and how would Maverick react? Summers takes the reader straight to a small town with a big hearted family. What I loved most about this book is that it made me examine my own self and how I would be when placed in difficult situations. Would I be loving, kind, and forgiving? Or full of hate, anger, and bitterness? The struggle would be difficult and Summers made me want to be a better person no matter what comes my way in life. Coming Home to Maverick is so much more than a story, it is a belief that there is hope, redemption, and forgiveness no matter how far you have gone from home. That God can guide you and forgive you, so you can forgive yourself. That there is a definition of family that means more than flesh and blood. When a book inspires the reader to be better, that is the mark of greatness. I highly recommend Coming Home to Maverick, it will take you on a journey you will not regret.
