Emma Dodd has always taken care of everyone. She raised her niece when they were orphaned and she cares for the students that she works with. Deciding to move to Fairfield where her niece now lives, she was hoping to finally find a place to call home.
Jake Campbell, was gorgeous enough to catch any woman’s eye, but he had a hard time finding the right one for him. A Fairfield detective, he lives with his mother to help care for her since she was diagnosed with a debilitating disease. After meeting Emma, he knows he has met the woman of his dreams. Now he just has to convince the independent Emma that it is time someone took care of her.
While helping one of her students, Emma becomes suspicious of criminal activity in her new town. Will Jake be able to save Emma in time for them to build a life together?
Thank you to Maryann Jordan for giving me this copy of Emma's Home for my review.
Home.....what is home? The saying is "Home is where the heart is" and Emma comes to learn the meaning of this very early in life.
Emma has her entire life in front of her when two of the three people she loves most in life are ripped away from her. Emma is left to care for her niece Laurie and figure out how to provide for the both of them. Emma dedicates her life to raising Laurie. Laurie is everything to her. Once Laurie has graduated college and accepts a job in another city, Emma decides to move to Fairfield to join Laurie in hopes of finding a home to settle down in.
Neither Emma nor Jake know's what hit them! Both are stubborn and used to being alone so there are some bumps in the road as they learn to be a couple. When trouble finds Emma, will Jake be able to save her in time? When Jake finds out who is behind the local criminal activity, Jake is forced to hold it together for Emma...all for Emma's sake.
Emma found her home in Fairfield and in Jake; and Jake found his home in Emma. Will it be enough?
There is something about a great group of friends that become your family when you are without your own family.
I absolutely love the connection of great friends and family. The small town of Fairfield is a town that we can grow to love, along with all the residents.
