REVIEW: My heart is full! I started Follow Me Home by Tammy L. Grace on Friday night as I was going to sleep. I finished it on Sunday afternoon. I was so enamored with this book and had a hard time putting it down to go out to play cards Saturday night at our friend’s home. If you read Uncharted Waters from the Sail Away series, you definitely want to pick this book up. I couldn’t wait to read it but, I had some obligations before I could. I’m so glad I was able to hurry through them and take a nosedive into this book.
Jess and Dean meet on a cruise to Alaska. She has just retired from teaching and is struggling after losing her mom a short while before that. Dean is cruising with a group that has helped him after leaving the service. He had some physical injuries and has PTSD. I loved their story in Uncharted Waters and was excited to learn that it would be continued as book seven in her Hometown Harbor series.
Tammy L. Grace has the talent of creating such lovely settings for her books. I always have the urge to pack up my stuff and move to the small towns she writes about. The homes, the nature surrounding them, the friendly wonderful people you would gladly like to know and welcome into your own lives. I want to know these people and be a part of it. She always carries me away to a place I want to call home.
I enjoyed the opportunity to continue along with the story of Jess and Dean. They make a perfect couple. I loved seeing Jess figuring out her life and knowing what she wants to do with her retirement years. Her relationships grow and change for the better. I think we all feel a little lost when we lose our mothers and we struggle to understand what life is like without them. I have to admit I cried more than a few times while reading Follow Me Home. Having tissues by my reading chair is a must for me.
I highly recommend Follow Me Home whether you have read Uncharted Waters or not. You won’t be lost at all. Tammy did a beautiful job of giving you all the background you need. I think reading both as I did is just a huge added plus in getting to know these characters so much more. I loved spending time with them. Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: The fear of an unscripted future. The excitement of a new chapter. Will Jess risk all she’s known to follow her heart and the hope of a second chance at happiness.
Jess’ life has been filled with one loss after another. She’s grieving the death of her mother and embarking on what she thought would be the joy of retirement. It turns out, except for her beloved dog, Jess’ life is empty and lonely.
While on an Alaskan cruise, she means Dean Nash, a wounded veteran who is traveling with his service dog and a support group.
Jess and Dean are both bruised, suffering from old regrets, and facing life-changing decisions. They bond over their shared circumstances and love of their golden retrievers.
Dean invites Jess to join him on a trip to the beautiful San Juan Islands, where he is moving to undertake a new career and life. Surprising herself, Jess agrees to the trip.
Will their friendship and that of the tight-knit community who welcomes them, along with the gorgeous coastal sunsets, and the promise of a better future be enough to convince Jess to risk her heart and follow a new path?
Follow Me Home is the seventh book in the Hometown Harbor Series, perfect escapes filled with the emotional journeys of women in midlife, and a hint of romance. If you enjoy stories of friendship and family, characters who feel like old friends, and second chances, then you’ll love Tammy L. Grace’s latest touching story of friendship, the often-complicated inner-workings of families, and the hope of second chances.
Buy Follow Me Home and treat yourself to the seventh book in the series readers describe as “the perfect escape, captivating, heartwarming, and inspirational” today.
To discover Jess and Dean when they first meet on their Alaskan cruise, you’ll want to read Uncharted Waters first.
