This is my first time reading this author.  Coming Home is the first in a new series about a family of brothers in New Zealand.  Adam left New Zealand after he was jilted at the alter by his high school sweetheart.  He saw the world.  Didn't look back.  And hardened his heart to let love in again.  

That all changes when he is called home by his youngest brother because his mom has cancer.  To say the family dynamic is a bit messed up is being mild.  So many secrets.  The love of his life has a HUGE one to share.  Everyone has a hidden agenda and Adam and Lily have been caught up in the deception for 12 years. 

This is a wonderful second chance story.  I liked that they didn't take too long to sort out what happened on their wedding day.  The story unfolds as Adam and Lily are getting reacquainted.  I won't share much because there are lots of secrets that come to light and the reader will enjoy the book more by not knowing those ahead of time.  

There are a lot more brothers that need to find HEA in this family.  I have a feeling Lily and Adam are still going to be in the center of all their life changes as the series moves forward.  Great introduction to the town of Copper Creek.  Looking forward to reading more!
