Title: Already Home
Author: Susan Mallery
Publisher's Synopsis: After nearly a decade as a sous-chef in a trendy eatery, Jenna is desperate for a change. She’s supported her ex-husband’s dreams for so long that she can’t even remember her own. Until she sees a for-lease sign near her parents’ home and envisions her very own cooking store.
Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna’s adoptive mother. But just as she’s gaining a foothold in her new life, in walk her birth parents—aging hippies on a quest to reconnect with their firstborn.
Now Jenna must figure out how to reconcile the free-spirited Serenity and Tom with her traditional parents, deal with her feelings for a new love interest and decide what to do about her ex’s latest outrageous request. In the end, Jenna will find that there is no perfect family, only the people we love....
My Thoughts: Mallery is well known for her wonderful romances, Already Home is more women’s fiction than romance. I enjoyed it as a women's fiction book.
Already Home is a story about Jenna, who has come home to her adopted family in Texas after a divorce. Jenna opens Grate Expectations, a cooking store. The long-time chef hires her first employee, Violet. We see into the lives of Jenna and Violet. Jenna's life is turned upside down when her birth parents appear.
Mallery gives us different views throughout the novel. Already Home is a book about the special bond shared by mothers and daughters.
I recommend Already Home for Susan Mallery fans, as well as anyone looking for a believable story about life.
