Dani’s survived a lot of sh*t storms.
Her mother died. Her two sisters loathed her. One aunt hated her. The other was strangely distant, but the worst storm—being dumped by her childhood best friend/high school boyfriend/first love for her younger sister.
There went the one person who was hers and with that, the main reason she stuck around. So, she left for ten years. But now she’s back, and nothing’s the same.
With help from Jonah Bannon, a reformed—kind of—bad boy she remembers from high school, Dani uncovers family secrets that have spanned generations. And along with those, she’s about to face the biggest sh*t storm of her life.
Only this time, she may not survive.
Home Tears was a good read, but didn’t feel like a Tijan book. Her characters lacked depth and I felt a little disconnected with a few of them. First of all this is full of secrets and a few twists that I didn’t think needed to be throw in. But I really did like Dani.
Dani is the heroine of the story. She left home ten years ago running from herself, her family and her love. She was destroyed by those who were suppose to love her the most. She runs away to start over somewhere else and what does she do, she runs again. She has all these walls around her and most are understandable. But now that she has decided to come home, she’s gonna have to learn to let the past go and move on with her life. The town is shocked and it has caused some major upheaval because everyone thought she was dead and of course its a small town and everyone has an opinion.
This book was a messy stew of family secrets, sibling in-fighting, jilted lovers, epic storms and terrible tragedies and was filled to the very brim with flawed characters. I’m afraid there was just too much going on for my pea brain to handle because this book tired me out and not in that cathartic “cry your heart out” kind of way. Were it not an excellently narrated audio, I likely wouldn’t have finished it, just joking, I ALWAYS finish a book I start.
