TO LEARN TO LOVE…HE WILL HAVE TO LET GO…
The illegitimate son of the wealthiest man in Cedar River, Jonah Rickard spent his life avoiding his father. Forced back home for a wedding, he’s brought face-to-face with the only woman to ever threaten his hardened heart. Connie Bedford knows what it is to be haunted by the past, betrayed by trust…scared by desire. Years ago, Jonah’s father saved her. Now only Connie and her love can save Jonah—and, maybe, his family…
The Secret Son’s Homecoming is book 7 in the Cedar River cowboys series set in South Dakota.
Each book in the series is a good stand alone focusing on the romance between two characters but it’s a good idea to start this series from the beginning so you have backstory on the residents of Cedar River and how they fit into each other’s lives.
The Secret Son’s Homecoming is Jonah Rickard and Connie Bedford’s story. I must admit I didn’t like this as much as A Kiss, a Dance & a Diamond (you can read my review here).
Connie’s relentless nagging to Jonah about opening up and forgiving J.D. and giving the O’Sullivans a chance, really grated on me. She just didn’t let up!!!
It took Connie a long time to open up about her own insecurities, and this was a truly devastating story, but Jonah was patient and kind. He never pushed or nagged. A true gentleman!
The Secret Son’s Homecoming is an enjoyable angst ridden romance with a strong message of consent. Themes of family, forgiveness and new beginnings run deep through the novel.
Although not my favourite Cedar River Cowboys novel I would recommend the series.
My rating 7/10
